Supercharger?

So are there any supercharger options for the 2013 slk55 amg? R172?
I know of the Kleeman one but unclear weather it fits the R172? are those only for R171s?

Not available for the R172. Kleemann is for R171. MB already got a 5.5 V8 twin turbo engine, it's in the SL, C63 and some others. But you can't have it with 4 cylinder shutoff. I'll bet the engine itself could be shoehorned in there but it would be a massive task far outweighing buying the appropriate car around the engine of choice.

engine swap?

the 2013 slk55 amg I am working on probobly needs significant engine work, so what are my options for significant power, anyone done a 5.5 bi turbo swap in these, is it even possible, i assume you cant go to an older engine like the r113k which is a 5.5 supercharged? i know i can bore the block to oversize if it needs to come out, but looking at possible engine swaps too.

About half year ago somebody posted a link to a company who had forced a V12 in a SLK R172. Kinda of a hobby project, tuning company so costs didn't really matter. I think it was an UK company? Anyone?
