RENNtech 

Did you know? We are huge fans of RENNtech! Especially the ECU's they modify for the various engines. Yes...through the years going back to when you actually changed the chips. We have installed, and enjoyed a few ECU's on a few cars. 

As you are probably aware turbo motors are hyper responsive to recalibrated ECU's while offering exceptional horsepower per dollar value. If you look at most engine modifications to generate more power. The budget guideline is usually $100. for 1 horsepower gain, on turbo engines its dramatically less per horsepower.

If you are an horsepower aficionado like us, and want to explore and enjoy an appreciable increase in horsepower in your bi turbo Mercedes-Benz V8 going from serious to epic power....we can assure you that when RENNtech recalibrates an ECU its professional...and well done.

If you have a 12 cylinder bi turbo it gets even more interesting, and personal....here.

From their specs...
