• Weistec launches W.3 M177 turbo upgrades for the Aston Martin Vantage and DB11 V8 models

      One of the dividends from Aston Martin utilizing AMG V8 power in their next gen cars is that much of the tuning carries over. The M177 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 as we all know is a powerhouse and tuners are extracting incredible performance numbers. Well, Aston Martin owners can share in those performance gains.

      Namely if they have a new V8 Vantage or DB11. The main difference in the Aston Martin application is that the motor is paired to the ZF 8HP75 8-speed automatic. Based on what Weistec tells BoostAddict, this transmission can take a beating and makes the cars potent on the strip.

      As for output, that will range based on supporting modifications. Water-methanol injection for example is recommended to extract maximum performance.

      One can expect output in the 600-700 whp range:

      The factory turbocharges are disassembled and fully inspected. The compressor cover and center cartridge are then machined to accept our 5-axis CNC machined 65mm impeller wheel. Externally, no changes are made to maintain a completely stock appearance. The new impeller wheel supports greater power levels than the factory unit with little to no sacrifice in spool and response. The turbochargers are then reassembled with new seals and fully balanced for smooth operation and OEM service life. All the original oil and coolant lines bolt right up making for a simple install.

      For maximum results, the combination of our Weistec Downpipes, and Weistec High Flow Air Filters is recommended. A Weistec W.3 Turbo Specific ECU Upgrade is recommended.
      As this is a hybrid turbo upgrade everything bolts in like stock.

      Key Features:

      • 600 to 700 HP at the wheels(700 to 820 HP at the engine) depending on fuel and supporting modifications
      • 5 Axis CNC Machined
      • High RPM Balanced for perfection operation
      • Substantial power throughout the RPM range
      • Stock Appearance when installed
      • 100% Bolt on installation
      • All necessary hardware and gaskets are included

      The turbo upgrade retails for $4999.99
