My 550HP AMG Mercedes With Video

Thought you guys might like to check out the new wheels, it's a CL55 AMG I just got a few weeks ago and have been busy modding since..

Only 500 came to the US so it's pretty rare.






Push button start, F1button shifting..




5.5L Supercharged motor





love the illuminated door sills.. lol so unnecessary














Here it is stock.


Since then I've added 50+HP with a ECU and TCU tune, high flow intercooler pump, K&N's, and 3" mandrel bent dual intake snorkels. Beast mode activated lol

Almost as much fun as my R1

Thanks for looking!

Congrats!

Did you go with Jerry at Eurocharged?

Did you use a Johnson IC pump? If I recall correctly its recommended to install it 45 upwards.

Do the heat spacers it DOES make a difference. Ill look up my datalogs

Have your 16 spark plugs changed and get some Magnecore spark plugs wire...

Thanks guys, and neihouma yes I went with eurocharged.. Great work, pretty happy with the tuning jerry and adam did!

For the IC pump I went with the updated 010 bosch unit since I heard good stuff about it.. What's the 45 upwords all about?

I'd be stoaked if you could tell me more about the phoelonic (sp?) spacers.. What car are you working with?

I did a full tune up with mobile 1, k&N filters, bosch fuel filter, etc.. Have the plugs but didnt yet install them.

Thanks!

Nice car.

Are those the original wheels? They look like OEM Porsche wheels.

I'm a big Merc fan. Could never afford one like yours, but still a fan.
How about some pics of the engine.

First off,

I have a lot of experience with this car because my dad had one identical to yours for about 5 years when they came out. He is a huge Mercedes guy, and has owned many AMG cars in particular, and to this day this was his favorite one. I borrowed it all the time back then and definitely raised hell in it (which he still doesn't know, lol.)

Congrats on buying that thing, it is an absolutely amazing vehicle. I can honestly say that CL55 was the finest car I've ever driven, even better than the newer AMGs in my opinion. And good god, that thing pulls hard!

I'd love to hear a clip of it with that exhaust!

Here's a shot I took when I first got it a few weeks ago, you can hear the supercharger whine and the exhaust tone.. before any mods were installed..
