440HP+ CLA45 AMG: Eurocharged at IS Works

As authorized Eurocharged dealers, are now able to offer Performance ECU and TCU software for a wider range of vehicles than ever before, including exotics.

But Eurocharged Performance is perhaps best-known for their tuning prowess on Mercedes-Benz platforms, so we were excited to book a 2014 Mercedes Benz CLA45 AMG as our first Eurocharged flash.

This CLA45 AMG already had some performance modifications done, including a full AMS Performance Intake, Weistec Blowoff valve, and a catless downpipe/midpipes. It also had a Vivid Racing tuning box which we removed prior to installing the custom Eurocharged flash.

The CLA45 AMG is already the highest-output turbocharged 4-cylinder engine in the world, producing an outstanding 355HP and 332TQ. However, which a Eurocharged Performance Tune alone, this CLA45 AMG should be making 442HP and 425TQ.

Of course, this doesn’t account for the catless downpipe and intake system, which were custom-tuned for by Eurocharged, so there is a good chance this car is making even more power than listed. At very least, it’s getting much better throttle response and less turbo lag vs a car with stock hardware.

On the test-drive after uploading the performance software, I was absolutely blown away by the power increase. I’ve driven fast AWD 4 Cylinder Turbos before, such as Stage 2 FBO Mk7 Golf Rs and BMW 435i x-drive’s, but this CLA45 AMG would completely blow them out of the water.

At $1,199.99 + the $35 fee for the remap, this tune from Eurocharged Performance wasn’t exactly cheap. But I would say it was worth every penny considering the power this car picked up. ISW can now confidently recommend it for any CLA 45 AMG owner.
