Mind numbing torque at your command


What’s even more impressive when having an Alpha file installed on your 550 Series Mercedes-Benz is the monstrous torque that you will have on command. Through our non-invasive update to the powertrain control module (PCM), your AMG will produce 660 ft-lbs of torque! To put this in perspective, that’s a 98 ft-lb gain! More importantly, power is dramatically increased throughout the engine’s entire rpm range. Our Alpha file will provide you with power that you can feel no matter what rpm you decide to punch the throttle.
