Mercedes Performance Upgrades S600 V12 Twin Turbo M275 Engine

Today was an interesting day and we were asked about Mercedes Performance Upgrades on the S600 V12 Twin Turbo M275 Engine. Interesting for Pressertech but more so of what we can really do for these older Mercedes-Benz. So what could we do for a 15 year old 2003 S600 V12 Twin Turbo with the M275 Engine? While we’re always confident in our work, we were excited to get this opportunity. See how we improve on what Car & Driver called “instantaneous and overwhelming thrust“.

The S600 V12 Twin Turbo is already a monster of a car but how can we make it better? The simple answer is with our Mercedes Performance Upgrades and our Perfect ECU tune package. The 2003 Mercedes-Benz S600 V12 Twin Turbo has the incredible M275 Engine. The stock engine boasts a fairly good package as it is with 493HP @ 5000 RPM and 590 LB-FT of Torque at 1800-3500 RPM. That’s Impressive.

The Process of Performance Upgrades on the S600 V12 Twin Turbo M275 Engine

So we went to work and pulled the ECU, that’s where the performance upgrades start. That’s the really easy part as most people are quite capable of doing this. It’s a simple job to find the location, remove some plastic shielding, pull a few wire harnesses and we’re off to the races so to speak. Just remember when you are doing any Mercedes performance upgrades, you can’t really put this back in any other order than it was taken out and the wire harnesses cannot be confused or substituted.

Bringing out the beast in the M275 Engine

Once the ECU is removed, we start our job. We open the ECU metal cover, some are easier than others and connect it to our state of the art race software. The first thing that we do is copy the existing flash of the ECU so that we can always go back to stock performance at the customer’s request. Then we continue and write the new flash to the ECU of the M275 Engine. The flash is nothing more than race inspired programming and does not harm the engine at all. After all, that’s why you go to a professional shop to do this.

The Results – Performance Upgrades on the S600 V12 Twin Turbo M275 Engine

Once flashed the ECU is resealed and put back into the vehicle. At that point we’re ready to turn the key and start the car up. Now it’s time for the test drive! The Mercedes S600 came to life like never before. After all, our ECU Performance Perfect Tune has just added approximately 100-110 HP and 120-130 LB-FT of Torque. That brings the car up to a whopping 593-603 HP and 710-720 LB-FT of Torque at Stage 1. Each tuned vehicle will see those approximate results but they will vary slightly based on many things such as altitude and locale.

Mercedes ECM Replacement – Virgin ECU

We received a call on Wednesday from a local repair shop. The call was a normal one and went something like this; “Hi, this is Sam. We have a Mercedes SL550 and the Mercedes ECU has failed. We need a Mercedes ECM Replacement. After checking with Mercedes and they want $3000 plus for a new one. Can you help?” The answer was simple, “of course we can”. After a few calls back and forth, we arranged to meet at the customer’s repair shop. It was a surprise how big it was. On arrival the car was already in the bay and we went through our cursory checks. After hooking the car up to Star/Xentry, the Mercedes-Benz software, we confirmed that the car did in fact have a faulty Mercedes ECU. No problem we said.

The Mercedes Replacement ECU Process

After we removed the old Mercedes ECU which is an extremely easy process of unplugging the harnesses and then replaced the Mercedes ECM with Pressertech’s Virgin Mercedes ECU. This is our Mercedes ECM Replacement. After a couple more minutes of marrying the ECU to the vehicle (doing an offline activation on Star), we were ready to do final diagnostics. We hit the keyless-go button and voila! The car started and was ready to go. The price? Well that was the best part for the dealer. The customer was thrilled with the $850 for the Virgin Mercedes ECU.

After we left his shop soon after but received a call a couple of days later. He and hi is customer were thrilled with the service and the savings and he then told us that his customer was interested in the Pressertech Performance Mercedes ECU tune. We gave him the price and he conferred with his customer and we had the go ahead. As a matter of fact, since we had the old ECU core and was able to read the DAS, we were able to pre-program another Mercedes ECU, complete with the Mercedes Tune and deliver it overnight. After quick swap and needless to say, the dealer was thrilled and the customer thinks his new car is out of this world.

Mercedes Tuning Companies Husband Gets ECU Tune on a 2013 S550 BITURBO as a Birthday Present

Mercedes Tuning Companies Husband Gets ECU Tune on a 2013 S550 BITURBO as a Birthday Present

Recently we received a call from a lovely lady by the name Jessica and it turned out that she wanted to do something special for her husband’s birthday. He was away on business and she planned on meeting him at the airport upon his return. The request was quite simple, can we tune his car’s ECU between Tuesday afternoon and Thursday? She wanted it to be ready when she picked her husband up at 1PM on Friday.

We know that there are other Mercedes tuning companies so of course, at PRESSERtech the answer is always yes! Well, almost always within reason. We arranged for her to drop it off at our shop on Wednesday morning and we would drive her back to her home. At this point, it occurred to us that Jessica had not even asked about the benefits of our Performance Perfect ECU Tune. So when she arrived, we wanted to let her know what she and her husband could expect. We started to tell her what the factory specifications were and what she could expect. As soon as we began our conversation, Jessica cut us off with a “I don’t really get into cars” statement. Our question then was why she had decided to do this? She promptly replied that her husband had a friend who had a 2012 S550 BITURBO and had a stage one tune by another company. She went on that he often talks to her husband about the merits of the tune and that her husband had said that he wanted to have his car, a 2013 Mercedes S550 BITURBO tuned. Our next question was, “How did you get to PRESSERtech then?” She again promptly replied that someone at his restaurant had recommended us.

We went to work on the car later that afternoon and pulled the ECU. After pulling the ECU, we do our customary checks and then copy the original file to our redundant backup server. Once that original file is saved, we create another copy and this is where we do all of our mapping work. While this is a very complicated thing to do, our tuners are real professionals and we’ve seen most models already. Anyone who says they can tune your car in an hour is probably not the shop you need. Not only do we use specialized software but the experienced human element is essential. All Mercedes tuning companies should have these tools.

By Thursday afternoon, all the work was done and it was time for a test drive! Did I mention this was our favorite part? Well, true to form the car went from your father’s Mercedes-Benz to a stallion waiting to go. No-one could accuse the S550 BITURBO of being a slouch but the tune made all the difference in the world. The anticipated gains of 100-200 HP; 120-140 LB-FT are quite impressive when the stock model puts out a not too shabby 429HP @ 5250 RPM; 516 LB-FT @ 1800 RPM.

Jessica arrived promptly at 9AM on Friday morning and picked up the car. We started to go through the changes she would see and she asked “remember what I told you?” We did, but we hoped her husband would love the vehicle and that he would appreciate what she had done for him.

On Tuesday we had a call from David, “Can we help you sir?” The reply was, “what the hell have you done to my car?” After a moment of silence, David joked and introduced himself. Apparently, his wife Jessica had picked him up at the airport on Friday afternoon and she got into the back of the car while David took the wheel and his colleague sat in the front seat. She said he really didn’t notice that things had changed until he merged onto the freeway. The story went on and David asked Jessica, “what gas have you put in here?” Jessica then wished him a happy birthday and explained what she’d done. Judging from David’s phone call that Tuesday, we think David was thrilled with his new ride and ultimately, we’re thrilled with another happy PRESSERtech customer.

So the moral of this story when your are looking for Mercedes tuning companies for the ladies out there looking for something unique for their husbands and boyfriends, we’re here to help and always respectful. Give us a call or drop us an email, it really is that simple.

One last comment for Jessica. We can’t thank you enough for putting your trust in the crew here at PRESSERtech. We’ll still be here in a few years when David decides to upgrade!
