Just drove a C32 Kompressor, OH MY GOD>

Well,

I just drove a C32K with the ESP off and wow! How much fun can you have with your clothes on? I stopped at a red light, reved it a little and then let off the brake. Smoke, squeal, and boiling tires unitl I let off of the gas. This car really flies. I think it has taken some of the steam from the 500E I love so much.

I can't wait to do a Kleeman install on a CLK 55////

Donnie,

I can imagine that installation of a blower on a CLK 55 must = GOOD GOD. That would be one fast vehicle!

Would you plan on keeping the existing "air pump" in place Donnie? Would not the Kleeman qualify for an "air pump". Could probably just remove the original air pump and "tee" into the exhaust stream curing cold starts.

Sorry - just making a joke in reference to the fact that they are both just air pumps . I have envisioned a compressor where the air pump is located on the in-line M104 six cylinder engine - you could come off of the same pulley if you could plumb it which, in my opinion, does not look like it would be too hard.

I have thought about that for a while as well. I also wondered why companies aren't offering something for the m119.

They all tell me that they want to start with the new stuff and stay on that edge and not work backwards.
