The reason why the 63's were able to get that much bump is that the motor is detuned from factory. It's the same 63 engines in the E class that makes 500 at the crank, so a simple tune would have boosted it up to ~520 at the crank, which means the tune only provided about ~15 hp gain the crank compared to the "standard" output of the 63 engine.
