RENN HAUS 1989 944 S2 WIDEBODY PROJECT

RENN HAUS 1989 944 S2 WIDEBODY PROJECT

In 1989 Porsche was starting to realize the success in the 944 model (built and designed off its predecessor the 924). The 944 was a nimble, well balanced, sports car that had a front engine rear transaxle layout offered in four different trim levels. The base 944 with its 2.7L inline 4 cylinder only put out a modest 163HP with no real torque to brag about. The 944 S model did increase the power some to 187HP, but the real players were the 944 S2 and Turbo choices bringing 208HP and 247HP respectively. The turbo and S2 versions also had an optional performance brake package as well as a limited slip transmission option. The 944 went on to become the most successful model up until the release and eventual success of the 986 Boxster. Renn Haus acquired this vehicle in November of 2017 after months of looking for the perfect shop project car. Many options were considered and there were some excellent arg ... read more

RENN HAUS 2012 C63 AMG PROJECT

RENN HAUS 2012 C63 AMG PROJECT

This is a company car bought in 2013 with 1,377 for us to have a little fun. In fact, it now has 8,000 miles as we’ve had a lot of fun! The angry AMG 6.2-liter V-8 normally aspirated engine growls and howls upon start up and acceleration. Power from the 6.2-liter V-8 is 481 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. The AMG engineers have fitted the seven-speed Speedshift Plus MCT automatic, which trades a conventional torque converter for a clutch pack with paddle shifts. The new transmission, first seen in the SL63 and now spreading throughout the lineup, allows the driver to choose from four different driving modes and includes AMG’s Race Start launch-control function. First thing we did was a RENN HAUS DME Tune, install equal length long tube headers and fabricate a custom exhaust. This brought the power to about 580 hp and 580 lb-ft of torque. Mercedes Benz had deliberately chocked the throttle body so as not to produce this crazy power in such a light weight coupe. In Manual or S ... read more

RENN HAUS 2003 Mercedes S600

Bradenton Motorsports Park DYNO performance: 683.47hp rear wheel (estimated 850hp at flywheel) 769.65 torque rear wheel (estimated 960 lb ft torque at flywheel) ¼ Mile Performance: 0 to 60mph - 2.91 seconds 60’ - 1.749 seconds Elapsed time: 11.341 seconds MPH: 122.14 RENN HAUS used the Speedriven package for this Mercedes S600. This package featured a set of matt black top-mounted water-to-air intercoolers, “scorpion” air intakes, K&N cone filters and ECU software tune to manage the extra air density and extra boost. We also upgraded the transmission controller allowing the car to handle the extra torque and giving the S600 a more “true” manual mode to hold gears more aggressively while delivering quicker, firmer shifts in “Sport” mode. Yet the Comfort mode retains the S600′s us ... read more
