Test and tune nights are pretty straight forward, you drive the car to the track, wait in line, make a few passes throughout the night and go home. On a hot, muggy July evening we took the shop 2014 Alpha 7 Mercedes Benz E63 AMG 4matic to our local track, Great Lakes Dragaway to make some data acquisition runs before installing our new Alpha Boost Cooling System.


Rain was predicted for the evening and track attendance reflected the forecast, there were very few cars running leaving the staging lanes wide open. Getting right to it Paul staged the E63 M157 BiTurbo and made a quick shakedown pass at 10.92.

We checked the logs and continued to run the car making multiple 10 second passes. After making a few consistent passes most people would be satisfied and call it a night, but we had another idea, just how many 10 second passes could we run that night? The goal was set at 10 to test the consistency of our Alpha 5.5L BiTurbo tune.

Pass after pass was made throughout the night and we exceeded our goal by making ELEVEN 10 second passes with a best of 10.87 @ 128.28mph, only two hundredths of a second off our current 4Matic record.

Each of the 11 passes the Alpha powered AMG made was within .099 seconds and 1.32 mph of each other. In addition, the 0-60 times were all 2.86 seconds verified by the V-Box Sport. Talk about consistency!

Overall we are very pleased with the results from the Alpha 7 5.5L BiTurbo package. It has proven it is capable of beating exotic cars like the McLaren MP4-12c and has performed flawlessly during all our testing. This package has been amazingly consistent and we look forward to going back to the track once the Alpha Boost Cooling System is installed and improving on our current best of 10.85 @ 129mph.
