Mercedes C63 AMG 6.2 V8 custom remap
This week on the dyno we have a 2009 Mercedes C63 AMG for a custom remap. AMG shoehorns its bonkers 6.2-litre V8 engine under the bonnet of a C-Class and creates an incredibly rapid sports saloon. All AMG engines are hand built, using a “one man, one engine” philosophy at the current AMG plant in Affalterbach, Germany. To signify this, each AMG engine builder stamps the engines they produce with an engraved plaque depicting their signature. According to Mercedes-Benz, there are only about 50 AMG engine builders.
As with all our custom remaps, we put the car on the dyno to find out what power the car is already making. Out of the factory the car would have made 450bhp but over the years the Mercedes had lost some horses. The custom remap was written on the dyno and a final run was done to get the final figure. An increase of 64bhp and 55ft/lb and an amazing roar of that V8 engine.
