    About 18% on HP and 21% on TQ. Sounds right...

    I think the weight the vehicle could be the factor of why the HP went down. If it shed some weight like use lighter material, then it could increase by small amount, not too significant. I wonder what would happen if a supercharger was added.

    what does this cost?
    I would probably stay with Cadillac crest mats and just use documentation on upgrades, and no badging on engine or dash.

    I see red brakes, these were upgraded for additional power on engine put out.
    The GL 63 AMG has 550HP and start at about $118K vs. $88K for for base GL550 with 429HP.

    You can have AMG do a performance upgrade on the gl63, had it done to mine, they say it adds 25 hp and 75 fts of tq, I will tell you it's adds WAY more. We had the SEMA 15' Escalade on the dyno and saw 353 whp and 362 fts tq, pretty much right on the 20% power loss that all my Escalade's have shown on the dyno. Will report the gains as the headers, exhaust and supercharger get installed for SEMA

    I been talking to Hennesey for the past month about the super charger upgrade $16,000 not including shipping your car to and from 3yr/36,000mile warranty. I have the cash but wifey wants the esv so once I swap I will order one from a Hennesey affiliated caddilAc dealer to include cost of supercharger with the purchase of vehicle

    If my dealer can order a Hennessy 2015 that will blow a GTR that would be cool. With full warranty of course.
