Full bolts on are the only thing they really offer now, unless you wanna get a full engine swap.

There are plenty of used SC's for sale. C55 is the same thing. If you don't feel comfortable you can always have the SC rebuilt before you put it on, they are pretty straight forward. Know for Kleemann there are 4 different versions. Most think the Gen 2 Autorotor is the best one. It is more efficient than the Eaton and doesn't have the mechanical coolant pump like the Gen 1 Autorotor, the snout is also better designed.

The aftermarket s/c's run less boost to compensate for the higher compression ratio in the slk55 vs the m113k. Careful with a s/c swap using the merc parts.
