P.S. There's nothing you can do to make the stock turbo spool faster, it's just the way this specific turbo works. Audi had too big of a turbo on their 5000 model (K26) and it took forever to spool. They switched to a K24, which is more efficient at a lower RPM and it became much more drivable. I don't think Mercedes ever played around with that, but I've always been curious what just a more efficient turbo would be like on these. But everyone who switches turbos goes bigger, so we may never know.
