    CLK BS tuning

    Hello Everyone,

    I'm new to the forums. I have a 2008 CLK BS. It is completely stock. I bought it brand new. It only has 6000miles on it. I want to start to do some upgrades on it. I would like some tips from your experience. It is my first time tuning a vehicle.
    I'm not looking to go extreme as forced induction. I want to stay with bolt on mods (Tune, Exhust, intake).

    I was thinking of purchasing one of these exhaust:

    - MBH
    - Supersprint
    - Renntech

    Those are the only three that I know of. If you know of any others please inform me. I also want to get a matched ECU tune. Where can I get the best tuning?

    I appreciate your help

    Thank you very much. I know of Weistec. They seem to have very solid and powerful superchargers. However, I don't want to apply forced induction and want to stay NA

    I do want to ask though, can they tune for any exhaust mod I choose? Has anybody tried them with any NA tunes.

    EVOLVE will also be coming out with their EVOLVE-R cables compatible with Mercedes vehicles in a few days so you can wait on those Click here to enlarge

    I love the SuperSprint exhausts.

    You should look into Eurocharged - I know they offer an ECU tune (and possibly a TCU tune) that opens her up a bit. You'll also want to consider long tube headers if you're going the exhaust route (Cargraphic, MBH, MHP, Supersprint are all good choices.)

    I'd also consider the RennTech carbon fiber airbox while you're at it...it's pricey but looks beautiful and has proven (if small) gains.

    With full bolt-on (I/E/H) mods you should expect an increase of 50-70whp...and a lot more smiling!

    All good choices but Supersprint is expensive for what it is. Quality pieces though.

    Where are you located?

    For tuning there are four choices recommended with experience on this platform that will each bring you great results. @mark@renntech, @Weistec, Eurocharged @Jake@Eurocharged.com, and OE Tuning.

    You definitely want to pair a tune with your headers.

    Weistec does not just do forced induction, they do NA tunes as well.

    Weistec offers great NA tunes, probably the best available at this time. They offer a bunch of parts for these motors not to mention their line of forced induction kits.

    That's a damn good price for what you are getting. My BS is pretty much stock and I've driven a few others with header/tune/intake setups and I can tell you it's a night and day difference.

    @Fast Lane - you will not be disappointed going this route. Now if Jake and Jerry could just get the throttle blipped downshifts to work!!! Click here to enlarge

    Are the pics on your website of the old design? I've seen what I think are newer pics, looks different. The airbox seems thicker and there are red inlet extensions that I don't see on the "old" pics.

    Also, I've seen something in the past where you guys maybe did a one-off SLS type intake for the C63?? Appeared to be a new design from the snorkels back.

    thanks..
