Hi. I've read quite a lot about different chips, tuning boxes (eg RaceChip), re-maps (Celtic) etc. for increasing the performance of an SLK 250d. Most claim quite impressive increases in torque and bhp. BUT, I've not read anything or found any info on what the actual performance increases are, ie. the standard 0-60 is approx. 6.5secs. What is the performance after having the car chipped, tuning box installed etc.
Has anybody got any info to clarify what all these claims actually mean?
Have a look at GAD Tuning Essex, I recently had my SLK55 done and am very pleased with the results. We will get our C Class 250 cdi done also at some stage.
It cost me Ł375, but Anthony applies his own map best suited to your car and depends on your requirements. Rather than others that seem to just increase your fuel flow. I had problems with such plug and play ones on an E Class diesel a few years ago.
