Phil1305 C63 Progress/Mod Thread

What's up guys, i've been a long time lurker on here since 2010 when i got my 07 C230 sport. i always wanted a C63 but at that time couldn't dream of affording one..... let alone a clk63 which started this obsession. Well last year I finally had a stroke of luck and my perfect car with color combo fell into my lap, and i scooped it up as fast as i could. so heres a thread showing/listing all the mods i have done so far with future mods in order.
My car is a 2013 P31 sedan without lsd and interior carbon package

Mod list currently:
ARH lth with catted x pipe swaintech ceramic coated
AFE air filters
ROW air boxes
AMR dyno tuned
Racing Brake stud conversion kit
Wavetrac rear diff
Weld S-77 drag pack ( modified for MB bolt pattern)
MT drag radials

Future mods:
Weistec stage 3 S/C setup
built trans
One piece driveshaft
2 piece rotors
Racing brake caliper piston upgrade/rebuild
powdercoated calipers
stainless brake lines
East coast euro motor mounts
custom oil cooler setup
100 shot of nitrous (doubtful but not unlikely)
507 shift knob
carbon accents

Nice. Says dyno tuned what did you put down. Also what are the specs on the tires? I was trying to zoom in on the sidewall
but couldn’t tell. I have the street s/s 275. Nice looking ride.

Looking good. How do you like that LSD? I also recently bought a '12 p31 car with no LSD and doing some research on which LSD I want.

it made 473 whp being slightly conservative, Matt at AMR said he could touch 500. I told him its fine where it's at for now. Once a friend of mine gets his tuned locally through a mutual friend, I'm going to check his out since its getting tuned with hp tuners.

The street tires are 265's and the drag radials are only 245. Im going to try and get a bald 275 to try and check for rubbing.

Streets are 265/35/18
Drags are 245/40/17

I love the Wavetrac, few things swayed me to it over quaife but either would be fine. I also installed it myself so just my time in labor.

great looking car(kinda partial to the white myself)....but good luck getting traction with the drag radials. I ran a set of 285 M/T Street Comps(brand new and prepped) on mine for a while a few summers ago and STILL could not get any traction so I went back to a normal rear tire and just had to swallow having to feather in the throttle from a dig

not too much. You just have to take a die grinder and remove a little bit of material on the one side.

That's a whole lot of white in the driveway lol. Congrats though and nice work on the progress. Look forward to seeing the rest.

Got my new oil in for this season, going with schaeffers supreme 9000 5w40. Ive seen the VOA of it and it looks pretty stout, and probably better than the Motul 8100 I was using.

I broke my drivers side rear axle at Atco a few years back. Wish I had waited for the DSS axles but they were on 8wk backorder and I couldn’t wait because of a track day coming up. Curious where yours broke, here was mine
