Most bang for the buck performance mod for my SLK 320

Have a limited amount to spend on mods to my SLK 320 so what is the biggest bang for my buck?

That is true, but the pulleys aren't that expensive and give good bang for the buck. Perhaps a 320 owner will step in.
BTW, I live in Pfafftown!

Hi
I thought the idea of the larger pulley was to speed up the Kompressor
on the 4 cylinder models.
is this correct. or am I confused again

Just got a Magnaflow straight flow muffler installed with a round chrome tip 2 weeks ago on my 2001 slk320 (cost me around $250 in total). It sounds like a BOSS. Loud but not too load. No rice sound here!

No I think you're right there Chris. I thought the pulley upgrade increased the power through the kompressor too. That may do you well on an AMG 32 but not so much on the SLK320.

And maybe try a "Sprint" power booster. Doesn't really boost power, but I've herd it improves the throttle response (which we all know is poor).

Heres a list from Kleemann http://catalog.kleemann.dk/catalog/c...gine/320-m112/
You can only get the 320-K1 package.
