CLA 45 AMG Burger tuning love?
 
Any love for the CLA45 AMG Terry? :) I know the C250 platform is boring but this looks interesting.

I was agreeing and then I saw this thing cost almost 60k...

Yep!

Carl Morris 10-15-2013 06:19 PM

I saw the 26psi too and thought well...I guess they come pre-tuned. Probably no point in doing much unless you are going to change the turbo, too. But if you don't mind giving up some bottom end, the right turbo at 26+psi at redline could be pretty cool.

Pitch Black 10-15-2013 10:32 PM

I think the Germs will all start doing that. As per numberous mechanics, engine builders and techs the Bavarians don't like seeing us mess with their ****.

BMW is laying the ground work to do that same things now. The M5 engine is fundamentally the same as the 550's. The 20's and 28's use the same engine. Soon they will start putting puny turbochargers on all of them, max out the pump gas boost and make the electronics even more complicated.

Mattssi 10-16-2013 05:28 PM

Since I lemoned the BMW, I'm looking at this CLA and it looks like there is a lot of tunability! Lets make it happen :)

neilvosko 10-18-2013 02:22 PM

tune
 
at 26 PSI not much room left for tuning....Terry may be better off on the regular CLA...just like he mentioned

Ocean 10-18-2013 05:00 PM

Must be someone who has a tune for that thing. Then add meth and/or e85. Rock and roll! It's a nice looking car inside out.
Maybe these guys will introduce something. http://www.weistec.com/index.html

Is there room to swap a larger turbo?

There's always room ;)

While we're wishing for impossible things, how about release a JB4 for the E9X M3 as well? :D The tuner 'market' for this car is a joke, it is absolutely ripe for someone to wreck it.

Bowser330 11-15-2013 12:41 PM

How sure are we that the turbo is maxed out, wouldn't that be too risky to the longevity of the turbo? Anyone have the specs on the CLA45AMG turbocharger? Edit: Borg Warner B03 Twin-Scroll Turbocharger but I can't find an efficiency curve for it.

I always thought that car companies build in a little room for reliability reasons, thus allowing evil geniuses like to Terry crack the code and use that room to boost up the power using software.

Curare86 11-24-2013 08:44 PM

looks like someones already started:

Damn

Bowser330 11-24-2013 11:21 PM

450hp from a 2.0T with a tune ? Jeezus!

Tuned1M 12-03-2013 01:48 PM

Wow...450hp awd pocket rocket!

katsooba 12-18-2013 03:38 PM

borgwarner b03? isnt that the same turbo as on the bmw n55?
how can it go upto 450bhp when on the n55 it maxes out at 380~

badblack550ix 01-08-2014 01:39 PM

damn wonder what 1/4 times this thing will put out.

A45 running at wisd in sydney.
12.2 @ 113mph with a willall piggyback. Otherwise stock. Owner said he did a 12.7 stock.

Fastest N54 on road tires at wisd was dirty dog in his old 135 - he did a 11.9 (can't remember the mph and his car is an auto. Times on this track are slower than other australian and USA tracks for some reason.

Only catch is tunes for the m133 are $1250 - $2500 AUD.:cry:

Wish terry would get the JB4 to work with the m133:)
