    ML63 VBOX times with Renntech tune

    In my search for feedback and results on M157 tunes particularly on the ML63 platform, I initially didn't find much of anything. After a couple of Google searches, I stumbled upon this thread: http://www.lambopower.com/forum/inde...howtopic=66469

    I was pretty impressed with these numbers, and I thought I would repost it in this section. This made me decide to go with Renntech for my ML63 tune coupled with the fact they are closest to me in Florida (and hence used to our climate) and that they back up their mods at the track. I am doing spark plugs and filters as well as recommended by them along with lowering the car an inch or so. I will definitely be taking her to the track once the weather cools off down here and will be expecting an 11 second pass!

    Vboxed my 2012 Renntech ML63 (twin turbo V8 engine) again today after messing around with it last week on some 0-60mph runs. Car is 100% stock except for Renntech ECU upgrade. I found a good stretch of road that is very flat and did a 0-130mph run. I then did a dedicated 60-130mph run. Then closer to home, I did a couple other 0-60mph runs. Temp was 55 degrees and sunny, had a half a tank of gas (93 octane) and just me (200lbs) in the car. Car was in sport plus suspension mode, sport transmission mode, and traction control was off. The A/C was off and I brake boosted on launch.


    The results of the 0-130mph run, 60-130mph run, and quarter mile are below:


    0 - 10 - 0.3 seconds
    0 - 20 - 0.89
    0 - 30 - 1.41
    0 - 40 - 2.04
    0 - 50 - 2.7
    0 - 60 - 3.75
    0 - 70 - 4.66
    0 - 80 - 5.79
    0 - 90 - 7.06
    0 - 100 - 8.44
    0 - 110 - 10.1
    0 - 120 - 12.29
    0 - 130 - 14.53


    60ft - 1.89 @ 37.3 mph
    330ft - 5.09 @ 74.2 mph
    1/8 mile - 7.75 @ 95.04 mph
    1/4 mile - 11.92 @ 118.21 mph


    The 60-130mph run was 10.24 seconds. My 700hp (on race gas) Cayenne did it in 10.72 seconds, and my 07 stock ML63 (naturally aspirated V8, 503hp) did it in 14.39 seconds. This may not seem impressive considering all the fast 60-130mph times we hear about on here, but its pretty close to what a stock 2009 GTR would run. The drag on an SUV at high speeds really slows it down, and with a curb weight of about 5300 lbs, I am impressed.


    I have done 6 separate 0-60mph runs and 3 times it said 3.7 on the Vbox and 3 times it said 3.8 seconds. Best time I was able to get was 3.67 seconds. Car is very easy to launch and is very consistent. I doubt there are many SUVs (if any) that can beat these times with just an ECU upgrade and on pump gas.

    Here's a quick photo of the new ML63 in the background of the Cayenne Turbo when I traded her in at Mercedes in Columbus, GA.

    Yep, I haven't had a chance to get numbers on mine yet which should actually make a touch more power since I swapped plugs as well which Renntech claimed would allow for a more aggressive tune.

    Having a 3-week-old newborn is cutting into my car time, lol

    I still haven't made it to the track with the ML63. Should be there mid December!
