Kompressor applications

I am very interested in adding a supercharger to my 1990 300 SEL. I thought one similar to what comes on the 320 CLK might just do the trick. Are there any companies that offer kits for the car or will I have to adapt one myself. Also for KE-Jetronic engine management, what type of augmentation is required for fuel and spark under boost conditions? How much am I limited with a 9:1 compression ratio?

Thanks, Motor Head

As far as off-the-shelf forced induction for an M103 motor, I think the only offering out there is a Mosselman twin turbo setup.

Good luck with your project!

I believe you can make a supercharger form a c230 or slk230 work, but it will require some fabrication of things.

Check with guido, he was going to dot his to a 300e. he may still have one for sale.

Here is another company besides Mosselman that sells a twin turbocharger and a supercharger package. They have some good pics of thier applications as well. I am currently adding a Mitsubishi Starion turbocharger to my M103 engine. I am looking at a 60hp increase with my system.

I contacted these people to enquire about the system they offer for the 560SEL W126 and they came back and said they don't sell these kits anymore. I enquired as to why they hadn't updated their website and never heard back from them. I am pretty sure these guys were like the UK agent for Mosselman, these kits are copies of their's I believe. If not MM, some other brand kit maker.

Motor. I have a super charger for sell. You have to create your fabrication. I was going to do this on my old 300E. But I sold it and purchased a 500 instead.

email me when can talk.
