newmember w/2000 C230K Sport

Hello All:
I just bought a nice little 2000 C230 Kompressor Sport but I really need alot of help getting it to where I would like it to be (performance wise).
First; the BAS/ESP light comes on 5/10 minutes after I start to drive the car normally. I think this has to do with the stability control system and I have no idea why it would come on, but when it's on it seems like the car is not as powerful. Does anyone know anything about this issue?
Secondly; has anyone tried to increase boost by bypassing the intercooler and running a methanol injection system like the one from Snow Performance? In theory this would not only increase boost, it would up the octane big time and the ECU should adjust the timing to suite. The guys at Snow Performance told me that by using their methanol injection system without any other changes (boost going through the factory inter-cooler) I would see a 20 to 30 Hp increase. Any info on performance ideas will be appreciated.
