    • Evotech Stage 2 2017 Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S M157 ecu dyno tune results - +186 lb-ft of torque

      It is no secret the 5.5 liter M157 AMG V8 shows large gains with an aftermarket tune. The torque down low in particular gets a huge bump. Evotech tuned this 2017 Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S on the Dyno Dynamics at Dyno Comp in Arizona.


      The results show a massive increase in torque starting at 2600 rpm. The increase in area through the curve up until 5250 rpm is massive. The peak gain over the baseline is 186 lb-ft of torque at the wheels at 3500 rpm.


      Dyno Comp corrects their Dyno Dynamics to read high but so it is important to focus more on the delta here than the peak figures. Approaching 700 lb-ft of torque at the wheels despite the correction factor is still impressive.

      For a heavy 5300+ pound car vehicle the GLE63 the increase in torque will get it moving much more quickly and basically be a huge kick in the pants.

      The horsepower gain is solid as well but the M157 is definitely more of a stump puller than top end design and it certainly fits the character of a heavy SUV.

        What makes you say its adjusted to read high?
        Rich can adjust his dyno this is true, however his dyno generally reads 8% lower than the local dynojet does. I and a few friends have personally tested this. Drove straight from his shop to another.

        Because they say they adjust it and it is not being run in shootout mode.

        So, for a Dyno Dynamics, it reads high.
