SLK 230 Kompressor (Basis 193 PS) – Tuning-Kit V23k

SLK 230 Kompressor (Basis 193 PS) – Tuning-Kit V23k
vs
SLK 230 Kompressor (Basis 197 PS) – Tuning-Kit V23k

I am guessing this is referring to the HP of your car. I have a 2003 SLK230 with 192hp so I am assuming that I would need the SLK 230 Kompressor (Basis 193 PS) – Tuning-Kit V23k

Kompressor-Kit: Strap disks combination to the increase of compressor-number of revolutions and drawer pressure, including. Sport air filter and electronic adaptation of the motor control. (Yet more achievement receive you over drawer air cooling or specialties more crooked concern).

# Hubraum: 2,295 cm³ # achievement: 165 kW = 225 HP # torque: 320 Nm from 2,900 RPM # Top Speed: 242 km/h
# fuel type: Super plus (ROZ 98) # exhaust fume standard: Unchanged

Can anyone confirm this? Can anyone give me a clue where to get aftermarket parts installed? I am assuming the MB dealer will speak negetively regarding the mod to the car; however I don't want some moron mechanic touching my car. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum

Now, in regards to your post; are members supposed to guess where you are from? Are you willing to drive all over the country? Etc, etc, etc.

Ha didn't know that made a difference. I am from Washington D.C. USA. I was just going to have the kit shipped. I have a few friends that are from Germany and Austria.

So how do I know which to get?

SLK 230 Kompressor (Basis 193 PS) – Tuning-Kit V23k
vs
SLK 230 Kompressor (Basis 197 PS) – Tuning-Kit V23k

Is one just more powerful or are each make for a specific slk 230?

I would guess that one is for the pre-01 and one is the 01-04. Who is this from? I would email them your VIN number and ask what kit to use. They changed superchargers at 2001.

The difference is in the supercharger and intake .

The 193 is pre 2000, the 197 post 2000.

I have never read a post where these kits do much.
Most seem to get most joy from a larger crank pulley from ASP. with standard aircleaner and original computer program.

Vaeth does make very good larger than OEM intercoolers. This is confirmed by a friend who remains in the shadows as he really has a lot of good insight into the M111 engine! His name is Thomas Strack. Good guy! Thomas if you read this could you please email me at steve872@hotmail.com as I have some ideas I would like your opinions on!

According to ASP you only "Get Up To "15" Extra Horsepower" with their pully. Can anyone confirm this. I been googling and can't find any more info
