I just got back from a fairly in depth tuning class and I found a great source of extremely cheap injectors. 410cc for 37.00/each! These are used on some of the top engine builds too. If the 330cc are too small let me know and I'll let you know the secret.

Sounds good here! I just can't wait for my fuel issue to be tweaked out.. if I can get it figured out, we can FINALLY get that intake worked on and maybe get some made by summer time!

Update for everyone:


330cc injectors installed and work AMAZING! She's running a little rich because of that intercooler problem I mentioned. I'm working on finding a more efficient intercooler still... If I can't seem to locate one under 200$, then it'll be time to pay some big $$$ for a really nice one.


3" high flow cat installed in place of dual OEM cats. Sounds awesome! Waiting until I get the SS headers installed to get the rest of the exhaust system done. Should be about 2.5" to 3" entire piping

Where are you getting an intercooler for your SLK from?

just a cheap cxracing one for now, I have to see if the smaller size solves my 4lbs of boost loss. If this one fails I may get one off of a local friend or contact a couple like AMS racing
