Just a little example of the kind of custom fabrication we do at the Speed Syndicate! This S55 AMG is already a beast, and there’s more custom work coming!

(Step 2) Here is the second step to the creation of this Carbon Air Box. The first layer of fiberglass is laid on top of the mold, and now we just have to wait for it to cure!
(Step 1) This is a foam mold that the fiberglass will be laid onto.
The Top Mount Intercoolers were finished Nov 17th, 2010 at 10:15 AM after 33 straight hours of work.
Here are some pics of the most recent work.
At The Speed Syndicate we are constantly striving to set the bench mark for performance. This 2005 Mercedes Benz S55 AMG is an example of our passion for cars and speed. This car is currently running consistent 12 second quarter miles but the owner is still not happy with these times.
Even with drag radials the car will not break into the 11s. After data logging we found that the IAT(intake air temp) was still too hot and had much room for improvement. On this particular motor and all 5.4l kompressors for that matter, the intercooler for the supercharger sits underneath the supercharger, sandwiched between the supercharger and engine block.
To cope with this problem, we developed a new Top-Mount Intercooler setup for the 5.4k motor. Having much experience with this specific motor we are confident that we have the knowledge and skills to achieve our goal.
We did every single modification in this car and it certainly has come a long way from being a stock AMG.
Stay tuned for the results!
