R171 Slk55 custom tuned stock engine by OE tuning

The gains is not that much but as expected on a stock engine. I definitely feel the power and I'm loving the throttle response. I don't need to use my sprint booster any more. I might sell the sprint booster if the price is right.

Welcome to the OE Tuned club!

Did you deal with Jeremy (expat Aussie) or someone else?

Cheers,

Have you tried using the Sprintbooster together with the tune?

How much did it cost? Self install? Dyno charts?
