Kleeman C63 Supercharger upgrade
M156/M159 V8 AMG Supercharger kit
New for 2013 is the introduction of 2 revolutionary all-new supercharger systems designed specially for the normally aspirated M156 6.2 liter V8 engine in the early Mercedes-Benz 63 AMG cars and also for the M159 6.2 liter V8 engine in the SLS AMG.
Machined from billet aluminum, each part from the smallest pulley to the largest plenum chamber is master-crafted on state of the art CNC machines to ensure the highest quality, fitment and finish, second to none. Keeping with motorsport tradition, all joining parts of the inlet system, manifold and intercooler employ captive O-rings rather than gaskets and sealants for consistent sealing and maximum reliability. Every finished unit is hand-inspected, pressure tested (both the manifold and the intercooler) and scrutinized for quality before it’s allowed to leave the production line for final packaging.
Kleeman have chosen the Magnuson TVS2300 positive displacement supercharger for numerous reasons. Magnuson is an OEM supplier to many automotive manufacturers which means all of their superchargers are held to very high quality standards and endure thousands of hours of bench and real world testing prior to product release. Unlike screw-type superchargers, which compress air internally, leading to an increase in both discharge temperatures and parasitic drive loss, the TVS2300 maintains consistently low discharge temperatures and drive losses across it’s entire operating range. Magnuson superchargers are internally oiled using synthetic lubricants designed for long service life. Kleeman supercharger kits for the M156 and M156 Mercedes-Benz AMG engines employs a large internal supercharger bypass valve to reduce parasitic drive load, keep throttle inlet temperatures low and increase fuel efficiency.
Kleemann pioneered the integration of intercooler cores within the intake manifold in our M112 and M113 supercharger kits and they have continued this superior design tradition with our M156 and M159 supercharger system. The bar and plate style intercooler core is integrated into the intake plenum chamber and an electronic water pump circulates the coolant through an independent radiator mounted behind the lower front grille and an overflow reservoir is installed to both increase intercooler capacity and simplify the bleeding procedure. These design features ensure consistently low intake temperatures and the intercooler system has been tested to maintain extremely efficient operation over 800 HP.
Kleeman have designed a unique drive system designed for the utmost reliability. Included with our supercharger system is a dual-plane crankshaft pulley which is CNC machined from billet aircraft quality aluminum. All engine accessories maintain their single, 6-rib drive belt and factory rotational speeds while the supercharger gets it’s own, independent 8-rib drive plane for maximum reliability and power transmission. This drive system integrates it’s own idler pulleys and a zero maintenance dynamic belt tensioner.
The key to efficient and reliable operation lies in advanced engine management control, and our M156/M159 supercharger system integrates the factory ME9.7 engine management system using extensively developed and tested proprietary software. Each individual cylinder is mapped for optimal ignition timing and fuel delivery. Low boost pressure together with precisely mapped ignition timing ensures low engine temperatures, high efficiency and a high level of reliability. The factory drive by wire system is mapped to ensure factory drivability, smoothness and a broad, flat torque curve. Through advanced software mapping, Kleemann has the ability to fully integrate all of the factory driveline protection features, such as torque management for gearbox/driveline reliability, detonation protection using the factory knock sensor system and safeguards against excessive inlet temperatures. Their expert knowledge of engine management software ensures safe, smooth and reliable operation across all engine speeds and ambient conditions.
The supercharger develops 0.4 bar in boost pressure, resulting in a power increase from 155-255 hp and 220-310 nm depending on the engine type and additional tuning components like exhaust headers, flow optimized cylinder heads etc.
The Kleemann supercharger system for AMG 63 cars and the SLS AMG has been tested and verified safe with all AMG variants of the 7G-Tronic 7-speed automatic transmission, including the MCT 7G.

Evolve Technik updates
So it has been a busy start to the year, with the introduction of new dealers and the beginning and end to some major projects. With rapid growth we have been struggling to keep you all updated so here is a brief summary.
In the last few months we have introduced 3 new dealers to the Evolve Technik Network, which now covers VIC, NSW, ACT, QLD and SA.
We would like to introduce Southern BM as our newest Vic BMW Supplier.
Ultimate Tunes as our ACT representative.
Evolve Technik is pleased to announce that we have appointed Eastside Automotive as our South Australian dealer for all Evolve Technik tuning upgrades. In keeping with our policy of appointing dealers with strong technical skills & facilities and after interviewing a number of Adelaide interested workshops, we have chosen to team up with Andy Sutton at Eastside Automotive.
With over 30 years’ experience, Eastside Automotive is your one stop shop for getting your car up to its peak performance, economy and reliability.
“After initial discussions with Andy, I could see that he is passionate about cars and performance. His business ticked enough boxes for us to make the decision to appoint them as our SA dealer, and we look forward to growing our respective business’s together. Eastside have the right technical personnel & equipment, experience, as well as a dyno and panel shop on their premises. They are experienced in restoration work which demands quality workmanship and have a “can do” attitude, which is what we look for in a dealer, and this will allow Adelaide to now benefit from the supply of European vehicle tuning products and services that Evolve Technik offers.” Said Peter Fitzgerald, MD of Evolve Technik. This will also offer us support to a number of Evolve customers that we already have in Adelaide, which is great for them.
We currently have our training week booked in for the 11th - 14th June with a special $200 discount for any customers whom receive an ECU Upgrade.
Eastside Automotive are situated at 55 Oaklands Rd, Somerton Park and their number is 08-8294-2933. It is still recommend that prospective SA tune customers should still make their enquiries through the 1300-980-898 number and we do our best to cater for your tuning needs.

Evolve Technik annouces new Queensland Dealer
Evolve Technik announced on the 13th September 2011 that it has appointed a new Brisbane dealer to replace M-Line Technik who has done a great job over the past 12 months.
Peter Fitzgerald, managing director of Evolve Technik said today "The change to Custom Exhaust Specialists in Meadowbrook was a better fit for our business going forward as we are not restrained by the political system surrounding a dealer involvement, which does affect promotional activities and growing the business. M-Line did a great job in the last 12 months for us, but they decided that they wanted to concentrate on their core business and we also discovered that the restrictions of working with a dealership were holding back our growth in Brisbane. Custom Exhaust Specialists owned by Trevor & Leslie Campbell are family know business who have been in the performance exhaust fabrication for over 15 years and they have earnt a enviable reputation as a high performance exhaust specialists amongst the who's who of Motorsport. I know of prominent racers from Melbourne who send their cars up to Trevor to get him to build their exhausts. So when I heard of this I chased them up to see if they would like to represent us in Brisbane, as I thought there would be good synergies between both companies going forward. CES will still be offering the same range of exhaust suppliers as currently available from Evolve Technik such as Innotech, Milltek, Bastuck, Dinan etc but we are planning on developing our own range of systems that are not currently available for many cars through the above." Peter said.
All sales calls are still handled through Evolve's office in Melbourne but installations can be done in Brisbane at CES's Meadowbrook workshop. Their address is Fact 3, 2-16 Beal ST, Meadowbank ph: 07-3200-2333
The Evolve team have been up in Brisbane this week training the CES staff on the finer points of tune installations and during this trip have tuned the following cars BMW 335, Ford Focus XR5 Turbo, Mercedes C63, Audi C7 4.2d, Audi Q5 3.0d, BMW X5 35i & BMW X5 3.0d
Evolve Technik look forward to a great working relationship with CES in the future.
