Please can someone help point me in the right direction? Ive just bought a 1999 slk 230 and i want to do a full restoration on it. The bodywork and interior side doesnt phase me at all im comfortable with that side,but im really struggling to find info on what modifacations go together to compliment the whole performance. Ive decided on a speer pulley kit for more horsepower. Do i get the chip that comes with the kit? Or do i either get it tuned? Or remapped? What is the best thing to do? Im going to port and polish the head,and get a complete exhaust system from the headers right through with a highflow cat. What are all if the other upgrades on parts i need and why i need them? I would really appreciate all the help and advice from this community on my quest to do a full restoration on my lovely new old car. As ive used various search engines and cant find any info on what mods are compatable? How to take my engine out so i can access my engine bay to spray it,which i want to do first,then start my engine mods ect,once my engine mods are all complete i am going to do the the interior restoration and then the suspension with coil overs and a big brake kit the body kit and spray last. Please advise on any sites or from your personal knowledge. I will feed back all of my experiences to the forum! Many thanks slk world people
