Cold Air Intake

If anybody knows a reliable cold air intake system that I could install into my engine. I have an E550 (2008). Much appreciated.

MB makes a pretty good one. But you might check with Renntech and Brabus who are both experts on tuning Mercedes.

Take a closer look under your hood--your car already has a cold air intake. Two of them in fact, i.e. one for each filter.

Anything from aftermarket will be crap in comparison.

if you want to modify your existing air box, I would spray the bottom of it with a hi temp ceramic paint, which will lower the heat soak into the airbox and provide for a cooler air flowing into the engine.

Check out some custom intakes that W204 members have made - http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w204...take-dyno.html

92% of all people suck at math. I am a part of the 9% who don't.

Current Cars:
2008 ML320 CDI 4MATIC (W164) - Silver/Black
2008 C230 4MATIC (W204) - White/Black

Past Cars:
2002 E320 (W210) - Silver/Black - Sold due to rust

What do you mean by hot air intake, that seems like a contradiction

The original was a cold air intake....this one will suck lots of hot air from under the bonnet,and a small amount of outside ambient temperature air...so technically there is the contradiction.(but not by me) Heat shields will help but also cut down the air supply,as most of the air is sucked in through the sides

Haha, very true. I never said those were cold - I just said there were custom intakes. What do you think about this one (since you obviously didn't go through the entire thread I linked to) - http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w204...l#post4415801?
