German tuner GAD Motors, has come up with a ECU remap for the M133 two-liter four-cylinder engine for the A45 AMG. The 360 HP the unit delivers when it leaves Affalterbach are accompanied by a peak torque of 332 lb-ft. With the new software, the unit allows the driver to play with 430 HP and 406 lb-ft.
With a 0 to 62 mph sprint of 4.6 seconds, the A45 AMG already entered sportscar territory, but now that time has been cut to 4.1 seconds. As for the 0 to 124 mph run, the ECU remap shaves around 3 seconds, bringing the time to 14.3 seconds.
In order to add a personal touch to the look of the hot hatch, CAD Motors gifted the car with a set of OZ Racing Superforgiata wheels, which come in a 19-inch size and are wrap in Pirelli rubber. The entire package is wrapped in a hue that has “Minty Green”. This is GAD Motors’ Stage One upgrade for the engine, with the tuner explaining there is room for more.
