The important thing MB wanted to achieve by getting a V6 in the SLK is:
1. A Better exhaust sound
2. Much more torque than the 2.3K
A filter could not offer neither of them...
Also, MB could have produce a Pulley kit and the 2.3K will offer more hp than the 320 engine... (Pulley kit like Kleeman, Carlsson,etc offer) You probably get my point
