Hello, I recently bought a `07 SLK 55 AMG with every package fully loaded. Awaiting delivery right now, I will post up pictures as soon as it gets here. I recently sold my CTS-V gen 1 caddy. How does the SLK compare in performance?

Welcome from Valrico, Florida!
And welcome to this great forum!


You cannot compare the two. Hope you took a test drive in your new slk or one similar?

:)Conratulations on the 2007 SLK 55. You'll like it better than the CTS-V. My wife had a 2003 CTS, appearance wise it looked like a CTS-V. The V is great performance wise, four door and it will seat five. The SLK 55 is a performance car with drop dead looks and top. Great combination. Welcome from Virginia.

So I do have a question, maybe one of you can answer it. I would like to achieve the same output as the black series SLK. Any way to get the manifolds and the ECU program from the series?

Welcome from southern California. To get black series parts, MB won't ship Black Series parts without a valid VIN.

Welcome from Eugene, Oregon!
Kleeman headers and tune, high flow secondary cats and x-pipe will get you close.
If you can get the Kleeman air filter boxes (not advertised by Kleemann) you will be on par.
After that all you need is a Quaife.

Sounds good but aftermarket parts for this car are outrageously expensive. Seems like I am going to have to do some shopping around.
