MERCEDES SLS AMG TUNING

Upon its introduction the SLS AMG's 571 PS (420 kW; 563 hp) M159 engine was according to AMG "the world's most powerful naturally aspirated production series engine" ever produced. In fact, the 6.2 liter engine (the engine was based on the M156 block) was modified to such an extent that AMG gave it a separate engine code—M159—to signify the more than 120 different parts used in the SLS engine (as well as the addition of a dry-sump lubrication system to handle the car's high cornering speeds and racing capabilities).

At GCAP we have designed a package to further refine the German Sports car's  character with a few simple modifications.

Exhaust

We use an Akrapovič exhaust system on our tuning packages for this vehicle.

 

Akrapovič has crafted a high-performance titanium Evolution exhaust system to further enhance this legendary performance car with a massive 6.3-liter V8. Made of our proprietary titanium alloy, the Evolution exhaust system is a “cat back” system. There are significant weight savings that aid handling and the power improvement is delivered across the rev range. The performance exhaust system further enhances the driving experience with the famed unmistakable deep resonant sound of Akrapovič, which is controlled with Akrapovic sound kitᙦfor exhaust valve control. When the valves are open, this powerful machine roars like a typical V8 muscle car. Complete the look with a pair of stunning handcrafted carbon fibre tailpipes with a special titanium alloy core.

Software

We have developed our own software to increase the cars performance. This comes in two forms. A stage 1 map (I.E. a software only calibration with no hardware changes) and a stage 2 (with our Akrapovič exhaust system).

When tuning we measure afr, ignition timing, intake temps, EGTs etc. to ensure our tune is as safe and reliable as possible whilst drawing the most out of your supercar.

 

We have seen gains up to 610bhp and 525lbft.

Brakes

As with most AMG Mercedes, the brake system is excellent. However we can offer modified braided brakes lines. Our lines have a stronger wall density delivering a more precise and accurate brake pedal feel. This translates into more confidence in your supercar.
