Donor R172 SLK55 needed for header/exhaust development

Hey all, I'm trying to find out if anyone in the northeast US would be interested or knows someone who would be interested in donating their R172 SLK55 for 3-4 weeks for development of long tube headers and exhaust. For your time you'll get to keep the headers and exhaust that are developed free of charge. PM me if interested.

Tuner is still looking for a donor car. Nobody wants free headers?

A car has been found. Header development will begin shortly. I'll post when they're finished and up for sale. I'll post results from dynos and dragstrip once I get my set installed.

Sure. If I ever get it. My car has been in the shop for 2 months with engine problems. I'm pushing for a lemon buy back.

Yes. I believe "MBH" produces the headers and "Dyno Comp" is a dealer that sells them?

Has anyone confirmed these numbers? +/- 25% increase in HP from headers and a retune sure sound like a big number..
