Hi guys I'm a newbie had my m5 for about 3 months love it and the power. I had a remap the other day and it's made it come alive but raced a mercedes e55k amg which is remap aswell last night and he got away from me just wondering which upgrades you would recommend to get some low Down power and so I can smoke him. Cheers peeps
If its a 2001 and later its a 5.5-liter supercharged V-8 with over 450 WHP. You're not beating him without a poweradder of some type, and those types of mods seem to hover around 10k for everything. A muffler delete may sound cool [loud and drony] and reduce some weight in the tail, but I doubt its going to add more than 5 HP. I plan on going with replacing my rear mufflers, but for me its mostly cosmetic and for the sound.
You'd be better off getting a Helcat or some other big stonk muscle car if drag racing E55 AMGs is your goal.
Here are the 2003-2006 Merc E55 AMG stats
Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG - Drivetrain/Specifications:
Type 5.5L Supercharged V-8
Displacement (cu in / cc): 332 / 5439
Horsepower (hp / kW @ rpm) 476 / 350 @ 6100
Torque (lb-ft / Nm @ rpm) 516 / 700 @ 2650
You S62 is not beating that. Mercedes purposely made this car to be a M5 beater.
I guess they got tired of getting ******* so they added a supercharger.
