The Mercedes-Benz 550 Series 4.6L V8 - Calibration

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.

Big Benefits, No Compromises

Just like all cars using an Alpha calibration file, your 550 Series 4.6L equipped Mercedes will exhibit smooth, stock-like drivability. The only difference is a dramatic increase in power and acceleration. What’s even better is that you’ll be able to enjoy all this with no detrimental effect to fuel economy at partial throttle or cruising speed.

Making finely tuned adjustments to cam timing, fueling, ignition timing, load control, throttle mapping and boost with a real focus on the overall effect to the driving experience, instead of just loading in a canned tune that is commercially available. What’s more is that we are able to provide you the highest level of performance with no sacrifice to reliability.
