    • Don't sleep on the M278 - Eurocharged tuned Mercedes-Benz C207 E550 coupe topping 600 lb-ft at the wheels

      The M278 is the forgotten Mercedes twin turbo V8. Why? Well, it is not an AMG motor and its M157 big brother stole all the spotlight. Today the M177 gets all the attention but that just means the M278 is a very, very good buy in the used market.


      Keep in mind, the M278 is really just a smaller M157 anyway. That also means it has similar characteristics which is being a stump puller:


      625 lb-ft of torque at the wheels at 3500 rpm. It falls off toward redline but if you want more top end punch those turbos can be upgraded.

      Either way, nearly 500 wheel horsepower with 625 lb-ft of torque makes for a Mercedes twin turbo V8 tuning value and a fun ride.

        If you look on the graph you can see Eurocharged Canada.

        I'm not sure on the mods but it might be software only or software plus exhaust mods.
