South Florida Tuner

Does anyone know of or have any experience with tuners in Miami/South Florida for our C63's? Besides Renntech, who does great tuning, ecu, row box install etc?

Thank you for your feedback in advance!

Best,

Don

I can do any of the mechanical work for you, I'm a benz tech in the North Miami area. I have HPT but haven't tuned an M156 yet so I won't volunteer myself just yet. One of the best guys I know locally is Marco at Billet Design, he's tuned a ton of high end cars and they always make good power. Where in south FL are you?

Row boxes are easy to install, will take you tops an hour and half. like 8 bolts and lifting up lol

for the tune, take advantage of the deal on a eurocharged tune

I might give the row box a go my self then! haha. As far as a tune goes, my only experience with ecu tuning is with my previous car (N55 BMW motor). With that, there were 2 options:
1) ECU flashing
2) Piggyback tuning

Is that the same case with the M156? Are there some tuners flashing and some using a piggyback? Also, flashing was considered superior over piggyback with the N55... Is it the same with our car?

Thanks skratch77,

I was looking at Renntech, but they seemed pricey when I compared it to weistec and others.
Weistec Power Package 1 (tune and intake): $1600
Renntech Power Package 1 (tune and intake): $4800

pretty big difference for 2 top tuners.

Also, their long tube headers are $8k

A tune is a tune, with renntech you are overpaying for the brand. When you have a reputable company do it usually there is very minor, if any performance difference. I would recommend Weistec and Kleemann, both have pretty good customer service.

C63
I'm visiting Orlando at the moment, are there any shops where I can pick up AMG parts? I'm looking for some new AMG exhaust tips for my Dad's W211 E55K, maybe even some CF parts for my C204 FL 63. Long shot I suppose...

On a sort of related note, are there any motorsports events running this weekend I that could check out, or any good RWYB's? I won't be running mine sadly, as it's at home 4000miles away .

Eurocharge Orlando may have some parts. I'd give them a call.

I don't know of any events this weekend other than the Festival of Speed at the Ritz Carlton Orlando on 12/2.
