Pulley Options? And other mods

It seems the companies that make parts for us are here and gone. Who makes a pulley andmisma larger crank pulley a better way to go. They are very costly buy may eliminate the need for extra pulley to prevent slippage.
How about a CAI intake, $800. Seems quite steep, makes me want to,try a DIY system as I have some experience from my '93 Eagle Talonmthatnran 11.68 at 122mph withmampoorn1.68 60'
Is ASP in business? Who has the best reputation and do,the SRT-6 parts fit our chassis as I see little,for themSLK's, mostly the C series. Thanks for any performance tips, Mark

I used to have an SRT-6, and I'm pretty sure all the performance parts fit both cars. There is a much more active performance presence at CrossfireForum.org. The speed shops I know of are needswings.com and eurocharged.com.

Sadly, bumpa2 is right. The guys who are serious about performance mods on the slk32 amg are over at crossfireforum.org. Thankfully, Needswings still supports the R170s! Eurocharged and Buckhead are your best choices for tuning.
