Pulling the trigger on power mods.

So I've decided to go ahead and get the ASP pulley for the '99 SLK. I'm also taking the car to Powerchip USA to get the car tuned to suit the new pulley.

How much power do you guestimate it'd be good for? 30 hp total maybe?

I can't answer your question, but I have a '99 also and the pulley is something I've really been considering. I'll be really interested in you opinion on the final result. Any insight, problems, hints would be greatly appeciated.

The only way to really tell is to dyno the car BEFORE and after. The SOTP meter is always off.

Definitely let us know...
