Has anyone ever heard of people turbo/super charging E55's or even any Mercedes? The new ones are EFI. I never have seen or heard of it. Is it impossible? If so why? Mercedes does have a prototype SL out there (pretty sure) that is supposedly supercharged. Think how fast an E55 AMG twin turbo would be backed up with a 6 speed. Surely that would be more cost efficient than the $250K + E V12'
