Testing a Mercedes C63S AMG 40TT with hybrid turbos and an Etuners custom ECU remap
This MY2017 Mercedes C63S is an absolute beast. We installed Etuners Hybrid turbos and upgraded downpipes. A set of BMC air filters in the stock filterboxes and a custom Stage3 Etuners calibration to make use of the hybrid turbos. On the Mainline Hub Dyno peak power was 457kw, this translates to approx 600kw at the
Remapping Mercedes E63 AMG 5.5T on an Etuners custom remap for hybrid turbos
Sometimes having a Mercedes E63 AMG with a V8 twin turbo M157 engine is not enough to satisfy the need for power. The next step towards making bigger power is upgrading the turbos.

When the stock turbo reaches its maximum flow limit on a tuned CLA45 AMG, the next step is to get a hybrid. Bigger and more efficient compressor wheels produce more power, specially at mid to high rpm. This car was an example of such a turbo that can produce excellent results. Fantastic gains made with
