You know the next C-class AMG will use the 5.5L twin turbo detuned.
Then they'll add a performance package for $7,000 to crank the boost to the E-class AMG levels and it'll be a rocket.
We'll have a pretty highly stress I6 to counter???

By the way, what changes are there to the DCT? There first effort was so great I can only imagine how good the .2 will be.
A direct injectioned S65 could have gotten that and more.
Add a flat plane crank for a few more revs to produced more power and give a sexy Ferrari exhaust note... perfection.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
