I have to give it up to the team @ Dime Racing for unleashing the power on my GTS. Of course I put a lot of thought and research into if I should crack open the heart of my beast and who best to do so. With their own shop GTS and Steve's long standing experience with AMGs, I felt that my car was in more than capable hands and they've proved me right!

Here's a recent dyno done @ Auto Talent in LA
= 531whp / 644wtq!




The HP was right where my expectations were but man, that torque is just plain nasty!! I'm about 7k/mi into the tune and she runs like a charm. Add in the menacing growl she has with her new pipes and you have one extremely happy owner. Can't thank the Dime team enough for their work!

If you guys have any questions, feel free to drop me a line. I love supporting shops that offer quality service & put out a quality product.

(This message was NOT paid for by Dime though if Steve wants to buy me a coffee @ the next Cars & Coffee... one creme and 1/2 a Splenda please )

Steve is the best. No contest there. I am getting the Stage 3 turbo and cooling upgrade sometime this week when I get my car back from Mercedes. My dumbass managed to blow the electronic diff on the C63s lol.

I will post back with the results once I have them.

I was NOT paid to post this LOL.

Would love to see some results from the turbocharger upgrade: dyno graphs comparing to a tune only, etc.

I have a tune and downpipes right now and while they made a huge difference, it makes the top end feel even more anemic.

After my first track event I knew this was a great car. I visited the AMG factory and got the low down and saw how much more is on the table with the M178 which gave me some comfort if I wanted to go the mod route.
I've been on both side of the Motorsport biz and see the overpromise as well as vicious attacks on character and fake news and wanted a no drama tech.
I'd met Steve several years ago as he was problem solving some tuning issues for one of the named Motorsport companies was having. He put the rev matching tune in my CLK63 BS which transformed the car so he was on the short list to consult.
After meeting with him I explained I wanted reliability and felt that that cooling was going to be an issue as the soon to be released GT-R had upgraded the cooling package to make it more track worthy.
He agreed.
I'm not a dyno numbers guy as you can manuipulate those and most of the time it's the power under the curve that counts. I can say it's torque that wins races and the Dime Ecuador tune really puts the torque down.
If your on the fence you want the ecu tune on this. I would also recommend the cooling package for the track days.
