Just picked up an 05 slk55!!!!

It has 49k miles. Only mods i have so far is a 100 shot nx wet kit, and green filters! stock before the filters it made 293 rwhp and 305 rwtq SAE. on a 100 shot it made 370 rwhp and 410 rwtq. My next mod will be the exhaust side and some weight reduction. Since headers are so expensive i plan on fabbing up my own set of headers! My brother and i have a lot of experience fabbing turbo kits so it shouldnt be any problem. My goal is a 11 sec daily driven slk55 without the supercharger though. Just nitrous.

Welcome. Do you have the dyno runs that you can post? I'd love to see pics of the NOS install as well.
