    Weistec high flow air filters now available for M157 and M278 Mercedes twin turbo V8 motors - $245

    Weistec has released their high flow air filters for the M157 and M278 Mercedes twin turbo V8 engines. For those familiar with modern German engines such as those from Mercedes the factory uses a restrictive filter namely out of emissions concerns. The stock filter is a point of restriction on these motors and the Weistec filters flow much more freely giving gains of 5-20 horses depending on the motor and modifications. Gains will be greater when combined with an ECU tune which of course requires more air.

    The filters are priced at $245.00 and ship out on June 1st, order yours today.

    Key Features:


    • Adds 5-20 Horsepower
    • Increased Flow Area
    • Optimized Airbox fitment over factory filter
    • Applifies the performance of your Weistec ECU Tune
    • Set of 2

    excellent filter and I think this is a must for an M157 engine especially for tuned ones. The stock AMG filters really suck, no disrespect to AMG, but that is the truth and I don't know why they use them.

    Price of the filters from Weistec is very reasonable.

    Price is not bad. Weistec are the only ones offering filters for the M157. They are not K&N's. If you look at the K&n website, they dont have anything for the M157.

    Excellent upgrade. I love thier tune for this engine as well. Cant wait to see their upgraded turbos.

    Assuming. Since K&N dont offer them. Is it illegal to assume?

    Not at all but everything you say seems like you know for a fact. Just saying maybe insert a "i think" "i dont think so" or an "in my opinion" anyway thats my thought.. and tgey do look similar to k&n??

    I'd buy them, but they don't show the 2012 E550c platform supported.
    That sucks: pun intended.

    Please visit our website and check out the supported platforms at the bottom of the page. We do in fact support the 2012 E550.

    Yes, but When I was looking at your site it showed E550 (sedan, wagon): No coupe.
    I understand from your call that the filters will indeed fit the coupe.Thanks for the clarification

    looks exactly like my dried out K&N why do they cost $250 ? are they made out of some special material extracted from a comet in a kuipers belt?

    I doubt they would just resell K&N products, but I could be wrong. From their site it would seem that they designed these inhouse:

    "Improvements in filter shape and positioning, combined with our very own high flow element provides a significant flow and power increase across all ranges of the engines power band."
