Hi everyone, I'm wondering is it really worthwhile spending AU$1800.00 for a Kleemann SLK230 (R170) Pulley Boost kit? It seems so much here in Australia but maybe less if I import it? What performance boost can I expect and what other mods would be necessary to enhance it's fitting? Are there other manufactures that put this package together? Cheers.... Barry :Beer:

The increase is worth the money. Normal boost is 5psi with an overdrive crank pulley its 10psi. There are a couple of other things that should be done. Oversize intercooler and hose's to help cool the increase in air temps created, colder plugs and for your pre facelift model you might need to re locate the MAF. You will also need a larger belt. Here is a link that might help you, not sure if this guy will ship across the pond but its worth a phone call/email.
