The Aston Martin Vantage is the definition of a modern classic. With the timeless delicately drawn lines penned by Henrik Fisker the AMV8 will be a driver favorite for years to come. With the Vantage Concept appearing first at Detroit in 2003 and the production version making its debut at the Geneva Motorshow in 2005.
The Vantage V8 was designed with a light weight bonded aluminum chassis in an attempt to create a lighter weight sports car to compete with the likes of the 911. Aston Martin selected a Jaguar designed V8 code named AJV8 with a displacement of 4282CC. The Vantage version of the V8 was code named AJ37/AM05 and featured numerous Aston specific parts such as: cylinder heads, cylinder block, crankshaft, camshaft , connecting rods, pistons, exhaust and intake manifolds, engine management system, dry sump lubrication system all unique to the Vantage.
In 2008 Aston Martin released a re-worked version of the V8 with pressed in cylinder liners instead of cast-in liners. This permitted a reduction in liner thickness (91mm in 4.7L vs 89mm in 4.3L) which combined with a 4mm increased in stroke to produce an 11% increase in HP output with a new rating of 420HP & 350 lb-ft of Torque. An RSC Tuned AMV8 feels stronger and more responsive than notice. Obviously anytime you tune a naturally aspirated engine your results will be somewhat limited. With this in mind our goal was to improve the driving experience as much as possible. With more top end power and better torque on the low end this balanced tune will create power throughout the powerband in a smooth linear fashion. Throttle response will dramatically improve and the car will feel faster on the butt dyno. With an otherwise stock Vantage you can expect power gains of 25-27HP and 22 lb-ft of Torque. With modifications such as test pipes and air filters power increases can be as high as 35-40HP when combined with tuning.
