    • Pure Turbos 900 equipped C190 Mercedes-AMG GT S M178 vs. ~800 whp turbo upgraded Nissan GT-R

      A nice highway pull here with a Mercedes-AMG GT S that has its M178 turbochargers upgraded to Pure900 units from Pure Turbos going up against a Nissan GT-R with unspecified turbochargers said to be making ~800 all wheel horsepower.


      Who knows what the GT-R is really making as the AMG GT S makes surprisingly easy work of it. The GT S just pulls and the GT-R disappears.

      It helps the AMG is slightly lighter (150 pounds) and is more efficient with power going to the rear wheels.

        I just tested firefox and it works fine so I can't explain your bug.

        Maybe you have an ad blocker or vid blocker?

        I had an ad blocker but disabled it originally when I couldn't see the vid and it didn't change anything. I tried another browser and that one shows the vid, so IDK.

        150lbs? try doubling that... GTRs are 38XXlbs and the AMG is 35XXlbs

        750whp vs 800whp shouldn't be that bad of a beat down

        GTR let off

        Refresh didn't do it for me either.

        Incorrect, GT S is ~3700: https://www.benzboost.com/content.ph...124-2-1-4-mile

        I stand by my 150 pound comment. You may be thinking of the AMG GT R at 35XX.

        may be I was...

        Maybe the GTR was capable of 800whp but wasn't running the correct map at the time of the race... who knows

        750whp and 150lbs lighter should not beat 800whp by that margin

        Pure Turbos always boasts how their turbos on various platforms beat GTRs with upgraded turbos and enormous power, yet most GTRs they race are on 91 barely making more power than stock. They are full of $hit.... most of the platforms they make turbos for struggle to get into the 9s.....

        Definitely agree. You never know in these videos.

        Quick AMG though.
