if you believe wiki, by date, you have a facelift r170 so the engine hp would be higher

Hi,

Get WIS / EPC and using your VIN, print the Datacard for the vehicle, that is the only way to be absolutely certain ;)

HTH,

Cheers Dave

Aha even better ............... Result ;)

I always advise Members over on Benzworld to buy WIS / EPC discs at around £10 - £15 , worth their weight in gold ;)

Also, SDS is a must for serious DIY'ers, anyone who has it will know what I mean, it is sooooooooooo much more than just a Diagnostic Scanner, and it will pay for itself over and again.
No, I don't sell Software or Equipment :p

I started my latest Garage business off the back of an SDS purchase to help maintain my personal 'fleet' of MB's, and since then I have bought various other dealer level machines for popular "lesser" :grin: Cars on our roads here :wink:

Came to the NW to be semi retired, got bored with that and now busier than when I had the big Garage down south :laugh:

Cheers Dave

958 is a 2.0L evo engine (post2000) with 120kw power for sure.
You would think so but if you run OPs VIN through WIS it really does come up as a 958/230 ...

Datacard for vehicle identification number:
WDB1704492F221743

Engine number ... 111958 32 145552
Sales des. ..... SLK 230 KOMPRESSOR

And a 200 for comparison:

Datacard for vehicle identification number:
WDB1704442F228912

Engine number ... 111958 32 183634
Sales des. ...... SLK 200 KOMPRESSOR

how very odd :nerd:

thats very odd. can you check whether you have the supercharger with the grey or the black pulley? 2.3 evo engine has the grey pulley while 2.0 uses a black, bigger one. if not modded. thats the only difference to spot from outside as far as I know. also instrument cluster has a hidden menu that shows engine size. my 958 shows 2.0 L, but I dont remember how to enter that menu anymore.

edit: 2.3 has sc# ...10 80 vs 2.0 ...09 80

EPC lists your engine as "111958 M111 E20 EVO ML" means it's a 1998cc engine.
More interesting, you have "deleted type designation SLK 230" on rear lid from the factory (code -260).

You have a 200K engine on a 449 body instead of 444, most likely. Should be very rare.

As the datacard shows sales des as SLK230 I would as ask for a refund from MB, or a real 2.3 engine swap :grin:

It'd be rarer still if it's Portuguese + a few other countries spec 192hp as per the 2ltrs were designed to be in the first place, is there any way to check that without putting it on a dyno?

those have 943 engine code. probably not because 2.0 192hp version uses m62 eaton sc, the one with the clutch.

Ok, time to show my ignorance: What does SDS stand for?

Thanks
