E55 Mods and upgrades

Hey guys,

I am from New Zealand i giot a 2003 E55 AMG, i am extremly happy with the car as it proves to be far superior than almost any jap car around
The thing is that euro cars are not that popular here and is hard to find any parts.
Can someone share some cheap and easy upgrades to squeeze bit more out of the car?
All i managed to find so far is some extremly overpriced parts like exaust for over $10k or chip for $5k

Any help greatly appreciated.

Eurocharged and possibly other tuners can do a remote tune. Give Jerry from Eurocharged a call or email and he can tell you how.

EUROCHARGED



We remote tune all over the world on a daily basis. All you would need to purchase is the tune itself, as well as the remote tuning cable. We would then be able to tune the car using a laptop and wireless internet at the location of your choice!

The eurocharged tune is definetly awesome and affordable. If you're looking for inexpensive AMG replica wheels I bought a set from powerwheelspro.com and they're great quality.

What performance mods do you already have? Most modded cars have a tune, tcu tune, longtube headers, throttle body, heat exchanger upgrades and pump upgrade.

one car at a time
Step 1 : buy and install a wideband and datalogger (without it you are flying blind) ~$600

Step 2 : split the IC cooling system ~$150 - 600

Step 3 : buy headers, pulley (size based upon your goals), injectors and fuel rail (if going big), and get a custom tune ~$5k

Step 4 : Smile

removed the supercharger clutch, pulley upgrades, modified the supercharger internal gears, intercooler upgrades, sprint booster, methanol, new pistons (full engine rebuild), tuning still needs to be done to sort the air-fuel ratio. I'm actually in South Africa

not sure if serious.

Do a search on here you can get a carbon fiber lip and diffuser. You can also upgrade the front bumper to look like your e63.

It already has a body kit on it. Lower it if anything. Front lip and diffuser will give it a nice aggressive look.

That's a 5 year old resurrection right there!

Do a little searching and pay some one $300 to send you a canned tune for your car, there are several reputable tuners around the forums. They will mail you a usb to OBDII cable, and give you software for your laptop and you upload the tune they send you to the car from your computer.

From my short experience in the forum I would say grab a Eurocharged tune from shardul or a raceIQ tune from Anthony Leshaw. Both have labor day sale threads going right now that probably end today, better be quick.

I have had two eurocharged tunes. Very easy, just read the instructions carefully and have a fully charged battery.

I'm below Auckland. About NZ$500 but should work out better with your exchange rate. That included postage of the cable too. I haven't done the E55 yet, last was for the CLK55, it's a bit different, only a few HP but very noticeable increase in mid range torque.
