2021 AMG A45 S Plus, Sun Yellow, DTUK 470 PS, Akrapovic Evolution in Ti
Theo,@Turbo Ed Earlier when you were describing our engine's cooling system, you said that thanks to the two separate radiators (one for the cylinder head alone and another for the block) we can run the cylinder head much cooler than the block and that there are all sorts of engineering implications resulting from this. Could you please explain the benefit, maybe give me the reader's digest version if that's even possible, just break it down for me; assume you're talking with someone with decent, but limited knowledge. Google didn't help.
And thanks for all the knowledge you've shared. I'm still boggled by that 10% of headroom and I'm not the only one, but I can't argue about things of which I have zero knowledge. And I guess time will tell whether all these cars running 470+ hp tunes (which is the majority) will remain reliable in the long term. I believe they will be. But if you're saying the compressor map ends at 465, then that's it, I'm taking you know what you're talking about.
No S**t Sherlock!!
I believe you!!!
I am presuming the first data sheet was from your stock A45S baseline?
Looking forward to your Map 1 60 -130 MPH times as soon as you have moment,
Been busy this weekend so no chance for timings so far just regular driving. Might manage some tomorrow if it's dry. Which metrics would you like to see?
I've been driving it in Map 1 and its definitely quicker, gives some torque steer which wasn't present much in stock.
I'm having a chat with Andrew at DTUK about the performance of the box and its maps sometime next week.
