I'm new to BenzWorld

Hello all,
I have a silver/silver 2000 SL500 sport that is essentially stock except for a Kleemann Supercharger (installed by Phil Smart Mercedes for me @ 40k miles 2 years ago) and H&R springs ( lisc. plate SL500HP ). The car now has about 52k miles and has been a joy. I have previously had 9 MB's including a '04 E500 and an '85 "grey market" 190E 2.3-16. I am particularly interested in a brake upgrade and exhaust modification to round out this SL.Any ideas would be well recieved!!
Brian

Kleemann Supercharged SL500

Mike has had the pleasure of speaking with a new member that just joined the forum. His name is Brian and is going by the screen name (maplevalleykleemann).
He owns a 2000 SL500 which he's modified with a Kleemann Supercharger System.

We came across his first post in the "New Member Introductions" section of Benzworld and have invited him here to share pics and pretty much anything he cares to share with us concerning his modified car.

Being he's new to the site he asked us to start an introductory thread for him and also post some of the pictures which he's emailed us.

So for your viewing pleasure here's the first (and quite possibly only) Kleemann Supercharged SL500.

Enjoy

Brian, your car is so sweet and what a sleeper.......

Am I to understand that you have the OE struts, shocks, and shims to get the height of your suspension?

Did you go with the Stage 4 package at KLEEMANN Kompressor System V6(M112) & V8(M113)?

Was the Kleeman blower system fitted in Germany or the USA?

I'm minded of Alex's bad experience with Kleeman USA of their abysmal attempts to tune his car!

Are there any performance figures for mvk's blown SL500?
