Experience with Polish pulley on 32

Hi guys,

I was offered a really good deal by the people selling a smaller slk32 supercharger pulley on eBay. Can anyone tell me from experience if these are grade A quality?

Have no clue on the eBay polished one that they are selling, but did purchase the Eurocharge pulley and new tune. Very pleased with the product and support. Best hp gain for the buck IMHO. 😈😈😈. 😈😈

X2 on Eurocharged, although I got their large crank pulley. They had just introduced their S/C pulleys at that time, but they were having issues with them, so I went the safer route. They have fully sorted that, though. Based on your location, I'd recommend looking into Kleemann, as they are top-shelf and I do believe they offer a pulley kit as well... among other high-end goodies.

Kleemann is really expensive. The Polish pulley is only 300,-.

Wasn't there something about Eurocharged and discounts when asked nicely? I may be driving through England to Scotland this summer and could pay them a visit then.

I have the polish one too no problems for 30k KMs, the only one thing is to check the hole size in the pulley because it have a zinc-based coating and it may changes the hole size (dont know your supercharger but in my case the pulley connect to the shaft trough strict allowance, not bolts or other thing to hold on place)

Pulley & Tune

I did the Eurocharge pulley & tune. Very happy with the results. It isn't the fastest car on the street, but very ample. I added an single pipe cold air system as well. Not sure what it gave me, but it now sounds like I have an wolf up front when on boost. Not wild about the increased noise, but it should have helped in the HP department. I don't like following the loud HD motorcycles either, but it is only for a short time

I send my okay on the price, but haven't heard back from them yet. Will keep you updated. I think I have to do an ecu upgrade to complement the pulley, right?

The cold air intake is something I'd also like to do, but taxes are a female dog here in the Netherlands.

Any use replacing the aft catalytic converters to race versions, or losing them all together and maybe even removing the resonator?

I also did the Eurocharge pulley and remap. Mine was done by MSL Performance in Birmingham, which could be on your way if you're going to Scotland in the summer !

Two things.
1. They are specialists in what they do, and will safely get the most out of your engine. Guaranteed.
2. They won't be able to compete with Polish prices.



You pays your money ............

Other than two wheels, the 32 has the most bang for the buck. My last car didn't even have doors or windows. @ 1220 LBS E.W. & 200 RWHP, it sure out handled the 32. It will never handle like the last toy, but I will be ordering shocks today.

Went on holiday first, albeit not in Scotland, and then first had to address the broken catalytic converter. Decided to go for a catback rvs system in stead of an original replacement (cheaper and more fun) and had the resonator removed as well.

Wow, this turned the 32 into a completely different car! AMG silenced the car a bit too much and exhaling freely from the top converters onwards makes the car roar like a lion in stead of a Tabby kitten....

Very happy with the results!

Now back to thinking about the Polish pulley, because I now also have a wedding to spend some cash on, on the agenda.
