Hello there, brand new member here. Im looking to find a real answer that i can not find on the rest of the web.

What are the gains (in Hp/PS) after fitting the following to an old R170 230 Kompressor:

1. Kleemman pully upgrade kit (with air cleaners included)
2. SS manifold, down pipes, exhaust.
3. Air Induction Kit.
4. Remap.

Id really like to know from people who have proof of the gains possible. Dyno graphs are what id really like to see.

It is my intent to tune my new purchase to get a few seconds shaved off the 0-60mph time to under 6 seconds.

Thanks in advance for any information or directions to a thread more suitable.

Baron.

Hi Baron, and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us and posting an intro! :)

We have quite a few members in the UK that like to meet up from time to time. If you're interested in joining us sometime, just keep an eye on the UK Region section, as we post meeting plans there!

There is a summary post that I maintain for our UK meets here. Links to examples and pictures from last year's meets are available here. We're a friendly group, and always happy to welcome new members at any of our meets.

We're also plotting where our UK members are - check out the thread for that here: SLKWorld UK & Ireland Members and Meeting Points Map - Please let me know if you'd like to be added to the map. :tu:

Thank you

Pimp my ride

Thankyou to all for the warm welcome.

Ive had a good trawl through the site, its pretty much answered all my other questions but i still cant find any photo evidence of a pully kit on a dyno.

I have a pretty tight budget and expect the pully kit to be the most costly (£1500apx) to obtain. Im looking at doing this project over the summer and will hopefully have it completed by the end of August. I will photo document my progress and share it on this site.

Ill also be looking at bigger brakes and better shocks and some bigger alloys (not sure if i should go wider at the back end?)

As for the looks, im hoping to (over time) fit various body mods. The most interesting looking one that suits my personality (yeah, im into that sort of stuff!!) is the VMAX kit, so bonnet and wings and skirts will be changed soon after the main performance mods are done.

I will be keeping the factory black colour and will be re-badging it to Brabus (another topic for discusion on etiquette) as i plan on using Brabus's ECU and any other cheap (cheap? hah!) mods that i can get my grubby paws on.

Pre Post Edit; how do i put links in the thread without downloading images? m'eh, here is the URL for the bonnet if you need to check it out. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MERCEDES-SLK-R170-VMAX-BONNET-/201824959411
