Slk 350 intake manifold upgrade

Would somebody please point me in the right direction for the 350 intake manifold upgrade?

I cant seem to find anything solid on the forum.

Is it worth it?

How expensive?

Labour intensive?

Many thanks,

Ben

A few hours and you can change it yourself.

Thanks for the reply but that isn't what i was referring to. I'm interested in fitting the face lift intake manifold to my non face lift motor for a performance gain.

Cheers,

Ben

It took me 3 hours to change, this will give you an idea for this question: Labour intensive?
The only thing I could find is this, seems like you need a new throttle body also.

Also on autodoc.co.uk there is no intake manifold available for facelift, but for your they have one

Did you find anything?
I was wondering if we change your body throttle with a bigger one ( assuming this one will fit your manifold ) and leave the existing manifold.
