Clearly not worried about the warranty then? Hope it works out for you.

The manufacturers rating for this engine is 362HP and 384LB-FT of torque.

The Eurocharged rating for the ECU upgrade is 460HP and 528LB-FT of torque.

I agree with Jeff, those numbers don't add up at all. Renntech is a lot closer to what I'd expect the numbers to be: SLC 43 AMG : RENNtech ECU+ Upgrade | R172 | SLC 43 AMG | 416 HP / 460 LB-FT | M276 | 3.0L V6 BiTurbo | MY2016+

That must be a stage 2+ tuning...I doubt just doing the chip alone is going to give you that much HP, they will need to bolt on a few other 'bits' to make an extra 100hp....and even then you need to use a higher octane rating I guess?

I know. Posted it as a more real possibility vs that 100hp claim.

Is it up to 100 bhp ? That's the way it's usually advertised .
If it doesn't go on an independent dyno before and after it doesn't mean jack .
That said , there must be a lot of scope for improvement in the 43 engine , if they can get more out of a 2.0 ltr 4 cylinder with one turbo as standard I'm sure there's a bit more left in a v6 twin turbo ?

It seems pretty unlikely, it's difficult to find a good source, but it looks like it's around 15psi boost level for the stock slc43. With 14.7psi ambient, that's about 30psi for 360 hp, so to raise 100bhp would need another 9 psi ... seems unlikely

Any news on the 43? I want to tune mine but haven't found anything other than the RENNtech and it is very expensive.

There's an English company called DMS AUTOMOTIVE that are quoting up to 455bhp on c , e and glc 43amg models , I'd imagine they'll do a slc too , I'm tempted myself to be honest . I think it's just a remap but I haven't actually enquired yet .
They advertise enough and a lot of the auto press have tested their remapped cars and the reports are always good . Most importantly for you they're advertising worldwide installation centres ! It's possibly worth a search ?
