    will be re running the E55 with diff driver that claims he can drive it, also tomorrow or after tomorrow will be running against E46 M3 6mt 2nd gear 30-130

    You are nuts if you want to pay $14K for a SC.
    Open your eyes, Nitrous is Megan Fox and SC is Sean Penn? would you prefer Sean Penn over Megan Fox?

    Sooner or later(most likely sooner)you will w/out a doubt damage something in the powertrain spraying;unless you do the supporting mods that go along w NOS. If you can afford to shell out big bucks to fix melted pistons etc in your CLK go for it.

    Problem w nitrous is once you lose a race you'll immediately want to put bigger jets in&thats when $#@! goes boom real quick..been there done that&have plenty of melted pistons,cracked blocks&bent valves in my garage for a reminder.
    If you race for money&losing is not an option,then by all means spray you car like Raid..but if it's just for fun personally Id wouldnt bother.

    How about trading the CLK in for a more mod-friendly platform???

    Do those M3s come with forged internals from the factory? Im not familiar w them at all...I know the AMG's have forged pistons etc where a run of the mill CLK 500/550 has cast pistons which really aren't conducive to spraying nitrous. But its his car&his decision ultimately,spray&hope for the best..but 7G transmissions are not cheap&neither are MAF sensors Click here to enlarge

    CLK500 and CLK550 engine are not the same in any way besides being a V8.

    Pretty sure the 7G trans is the same correct? PM ItalianStallion &im sure he can enlighten you as to what spraying nitrous did to his CLK's drivetrain. Point is the CLK 550(like the 500) is not an AMG&doesn't have forged internals so Id be cautious if I were you

    The S54 has forged internals, yes. The AMG's do not all have forged internals, I think the non-P31 M156 has cast rods for example.
