Probably more than it's worth -- many thousands just for the engine, nevermind the installation.

What are you thinking regarding power? If your current engine has bad valves or rings then some increase in power and less oil consumption will occur.

It a 2.2 liter 4 cylinder engine so it will likely always feel a little out of breath.

I think you should look for a newer C230 with the supercharger or a 6 cylinder and sell your current unit.

It will be thousands and thousands cheaper[:0]


Now: 2010 GLK350 4Matic Then: 2003 C320 4Matic, 2006 E320 CDI, 2000 E320, 1994 E320, 1991 190E, 1985 300D, 1983 300D
