You might try a smaller supercharger pulley, remap and a custom exhaust.

Hi Everyone
Sorry to have caused such consternation!!
I've had to give up driving since my post so no Merc. now but still found your response interesting - there was a lack of good info. on the subject at the time so I'm sure your post will find someone who's searching. I also fitted a Smarttop - best mod you can do I reckon!

Yes i agree on the Smart Top being the first and best mod,if i'm not wrong i think the newer SLC's have the option to open the roof at a certain speed now?
Sorry to hear you had to stop driving i can't imagine not driving in the futureChazbee!
Thanks for your return and reply you keep yourself well,too many speed camera's out there these days anyway,enough to stop us all wanting anything but a silent electric swoooosh!!! mobile.

Racechips YT advert says they got 40 or more BHP from my car with their chip i am OFC open minded and they will tell you it depends on different Engine tolerance ect but i know my car pulls harder now in sports mode and Eco feels like it restricts harder acceleration even more now.
Now i am also confused by comments from people who have never even fitted the chip to this car telling other people that Racechip are S---t as i thought they have been a reputable company for some time and the Pro2 chip is around £350 so is not a £20 chip?
I searched high and low to find any review on chipping my car and there is not much out there i can find so i got my Racechip Pro2 second hand on EB £50 and gave it a go myself.
All i can say is i like it and it is not BS on the setting i have it my car is better and i checked with Racechip if my car would be fine on level 3 in it's stock form they said the power they advertised or got on the YT add was on a stock car.
I also had the 2 back boxes deleted on my car stock tips welded back on as i never liked how quiet the stock car was even with its roof down i had to thrash the car above 5k revs to hear anything sporty,the exhaust mod may not be for everybody there is a little drone with the roof down at any constant speed but i would rather hear some noise from the back of the car than the stock setup,cost £140 to chop the back boxes and straight pipe to the original chrome tips,never lost the blurp sound the car made when thrashed on gear up changes either just all a lot louder but can still be controlled by how much your revving the car,next MOT will be interesting as no guarantee yet that it will pass one,i feel it is not excessive at all!and i have OFC still got the back boxes stored so they can be welded back on the car if needed.
I like the car more now with the roof down now it makes some noise when asked to and OFC it will never be a V6 V8 or the fiesta ST ecoboost i had before this(if only you could drop the roof on the ST) but trust me i have the sport suspension on my car too and i feel i have a fair mix of roof down fun now,Oh i fitted the roof mod too £180 used off EB and opening the roof now at 30mph (with great care on straight roads without pot holes)can also drive with rear windows up or down,and 3 clicks on car key fob will open or lower the roof within range of the fob.
These are the mods i wanted for my car and hope this helps anybody who was pondering on such mods!
As for what will happen to my Engine with a chip on, it's removable in 2 minutes and put back to stock with a blank plugin and anybody worried about Engine damage after chipping is like overclocking your desktop CPU do not do it if your not willing to face possible downsides,would i do it on a newer car under warranty? erm nope i would not.
I could not find any facts on this thread to prove a racechip would kill my Engine so i go it alone with fingers crossed,many petrol heads do silly things and if they had not done those silly things they may not have loved their Bat mobiles as much!
0H!and yes i did have the roof down all the 120 or so miles yesterday was warmer in the car than the house i live in.

Main thing i hate about the car is it's Auto 7g plus gearbox Manual paddle shift is BS another gearbox that stops you selecting all the gears you chose it always drops the car into 1st gear at stops although i feel the car should launch from 2nd gear and does so just fine but Yes Auto great for city drives but i miss Manual shift on runs like the Evo Triangle i just did again!
Just an update to my post here,since this post my stock exhaust mod has passed it's second MOT Yesterday with no issues on the 2 removed back boxes, and that's if anybody is worried about the new MOT Exhaust test!

Interesting, was thinking of a remap on my SLC200, guy who done my SLK250 said he can't do it at present but received a quote from Celtic Tuning to raise BHP to 239 @ 304lb/ft, but after reading some older responses makes me wonder whether it's the right thing to do?
Is the SLC200 a better engine than the SLK200, wouldn't think so...ermm.

Thought SLC got a 2.0L Engine my Petrol SLK 200 is an 1.8L Engine.i know there are smaller SLC 1.6L ones but the 2.0L replaced my 1.8L i think!
The power increase offered to you seems very interesting over stock.
The SLC 300 is the top 4 pot with a exhaust valve in sport mode or sport plus i think?and that may well be the same Engine as yours but more tuned?
Your DATA Sheet like mine may say DETUNED like mine does so could mean same Engine block.

What they can do is remap and get better bhp from the Turbo and ecu tweaks on the 2.0L
Or the 300 model has a bigger Turbo so can output even more Bhp of the standard 200 Turbo etc

Yes it is a 1991cc engine, and was thinking along the same lines as being same as SLC300 but with less BHP, but the price difference is quite significant. Will investigate further.

Checked data sheet but no DETUNED on it.

Just checked my Data Sheet it says this,

Means the same i guess though!

Just looking at RACECHIP with the 52BHP increase c/w phone app for adjustment.
Looks an interesting choice as can remove when going to garage but does state "difficult car to install on".
Will have to take suspension brace off to install so as to lift cover, but need to take off for first service at Mercedes anyway.
So after service a good time to install it.

The differences between the 200 and the 300 are quite substantial. The exhaust manifold is different, the turbo is a different part number, the intercooler is larger and the pistons and other minor associated engine internals look to be different part numbers. Just because that engine makes anything up to 400PS in different guises doesn’t mean you can plug in a tuning box and get an extra 50PS safely.

I Agree many internals and externals will differ on the 300 but the block my not differ?

I do not think RaceChip would Guarantee 50ps they would probably say "UP TO"depending on certain factors of every individual cars Engine output as they can vary slightly on each car,and the OP would not be buying a SLC RaceChip for a SLC 300,the one he would be looking at would be for his SLC 200,which i would think RaceChip the German company i think?will of tested and even warrant their product up to a certain mileage or age,they are not a new or unheard of Company,Anybody even thinking of tuning or chipping a car should understand possible risks,as i said already a lot of Engine blocks are the same and are infact detuned ie there is more power potential in the Engine and the likes of RaceChip know this too i think?
OP'er knows he has the 200 not the 300,i do not think RaceChip chips are the 20 pound chips most on here warn against,but tuning any car has become more common practice with Turbo Engines and it is successful if done right!

It has basically the same block as the AMG A45, but the pistons and turbo won’t make it and by over-driving the injection pump you risk destroying that too. And that isn’t covered by the warranty. The warranty is also a bit interesting if you know anything about law and legalese. Basically, it’s not worth the paper it’s not written on.

And please don’t keep pushing this myth that tuning boxes are undetectable. When they intercept the engine management unit’s instructions they basically turn that instruction up a bit. How much is determined by you when you move the dial on the box or the app. But the car is reasonably smart and it knows what that signal is supposed to do and it’s monitoring for when it doesn’t do what it was expecting. That allows it to adjust for good or bad fuel or very wet air. So when you turn up the signals with the tuning box it generates an ‘infeasible’ or ‘implausible’ signal error (different ECU manufacturer’s use different terms) and if you get a log filled up with these errors they KNOW you’ve had a tuning box connected because it’s the only way you can get these errors and car doesn’t go into limp mode. And even then, sometimes if you turn the tuning box up too high, the car will go into limp mode anyway.

If you want a faster car, either invest in some driver training or trade your ‘slow’ car in and get a 300 or a 43. It’ll be much cheaper in the long-run.

so pay 70k instead of 30-40k for a faster car over a new fuel pump and a RaceChip ok then!
So your saying raceChip do not test their product the car will throw errors,you know their chips are tested for your particular car and you can remove the RaceChip in seconds with a blank off plug,and you know it does not have to be used 24/7 if your worried about so much wear and tear.and you can at any time disable the newer chips via a mobile phone app unlike an ECU tune so what i am saying having run mine now on and off for 2 years is i prefer the chip box i have over other tuning,as for error codes buy a scanner and clear them OFC.
Having owned 2015 Fiesta ST2 before my SLK also tuned and modded slightly i knew the risks and had none,but you cannot stop people wanting more power,plenty of people that track cars do it more nawadays,but i am not here to tell people not to do it i am here to tell them what i did to my car they can do what they like i guess,these chips can also save fuel too,but everything you have said is fact too and i can't afford a 43 or 55 or 300 and my car was not under warranty when i chipped mine with about 50k on the clock.
