Carlsson Upgrades Mercedes V6 Diesel Engines
The company uses the E 350 CDI model to showcase its latest product. The vehicle, which delivers 231 hp when it leaves the factory, now offers 280 hp. As for the torque, this has been increased from 540 to 648 Nm.
The tuner claims that the upgrade doesn’t affect the engines’ level of emissions. This means that the power kit is also suitable for Euro5 powerplants.
Carlsson’s system uses a plug adapter that is mounted between the engine control unit and the engine wiring loom, with the kit being easy to install and remove.
The C-Tronic Diesel Power performance upgrade is available for the 280, 300, 320 and 350 CDI engines mounted on the C-Klasse, CLK-Klasse, E-Klasse, CLS, S-Klasse, GLK, ML, as well as for the Vito and Viano vans. The upgrade can be your for EUR1,779.
“Since the Carlsson C-Tronic DIESEL POWER is connected to the car’s data stream it can register and evaluate all the engine’s operating data in real time, the module guarantees improved performance without ever endangering the operating safety of either the engine or the power train."
"For example, the C-Tronic reduces power during gear changes in such a way that the driver doesn’t notice the difference, thereby preserving the clutch and shielding the automatic gearbox from excess wear,” explained the press release.
