More power from a C32 AMG?

I am wondering how could i push my C32 AMG for some more power. I havent dyno the car recently but i got easily more than 300 hp at the moment.
Does any electrical chip exist for those cars? I am interrested in any slight modifications available, like 30 - 70 more Hp.
Any ideas? everything is welcome

Code3 makes a upgraded pulley for your car. A upgraded intercooler water pump and radiator would also pull out some more horsepower.

I know a group called LET does tuning on C32's. The best places to ask about mods is mymbonline.com and the amg sections of this site and mbworld.org

You could go crazy, remove the the supercharger and replace them with twin turbo, keep same boost level as when it had the supercharger (whats the boost on those btw) u should see an increase of some 40 hp at least.

well since i am turbocharging my W124 M103 engine, i am not thinking of changing the supercharger on this C32. someone is talking about re-map my ecu but i have no idea if i should trust him or not.
i already asked and the engine is able to take up to 400 hp with no risk but no more than that coz the base of the engine is the regular C320 engine that does 221 hp.

The cheapest dollar for horsepower is a pulley kit. It is a bolt on crank pulley.
These are readily available from evosport, kleemann, renntech, let, code3. etc.
If you do not get to big of a pulley no tunning is required. Reliability wise there is really no risk. We are only talking about another 50 hp max. I have driven and worked on many of these and they work great. I would not hesitate.
After this the dollars for hp goes up. You can do things like the intake tubes. But really you are on a path of many thousands of dollars. It seems to me that most of the tuners stopped at 425 hp. I would look at this as a good reliability
benchmark. Not to say you cannot get a lot more, but longevity will start to be
compromised. mbworld has a lot of info on this topic.

Am sure the bottom end is not your stock 320 end, no matter how cheap merc would have been during the w203 era, the engines where still of the best there is.

well it aint cheap but i aint the same quality as M103 ones!
I wont be going more than 400hp i just like to have an extra boost over any other stock C32 AMG.
Code3 pulley seems to work just fine, average of 25-40 extra HP and should not cost more than 800$ and even i might get it cheaper.
I can also get a C55 Y splitter which will help too
