E55 traction control and nitrous
Hi guys, I think this is my first post here, but I've been searching/reading the forums for a few months now. I bought my E55 in December and my opinion is that although it's a VERY nice, fancy way to spend a lot of money on fuel, it's not nesesarily all that 'fun' to drive.
Considering my options for tuning, I always end up thinking that I'll need alcohol to keep the IAT's down....but my experience with nitrous always makes me think, why not just run nitrous instead of bolt ons! My only concern is the traction control system - my question is, can somebody please tell me if the W211 E55 AMG traction control system works by cutting ign spark, or by cutting fuel to the injectors?
