FS: CLK430 Airbox (good for modification)

For sale is the used engine cover and upper half of the airbox for a CLK430. This does not include the lower portion that holds the filters and connects to the feeder hoses.

I bought this planning to cut out some of the dividers for a more direct air flow path and therefore a small performance gain. This would allow for some of the gains of the CLK55 airbox while retaining the stock appearance and working with the stock air hoses. You can find out more about this mod here http://www.cardomain.com/ride/597329/5 and here (remove the spaces) http://forums.m b w o r l d.org/foru...t=73653&page=2

Since the modifications are only done to the top half of the box, you can use your stock bottom half and keep your original top half untouched in case you need to revert back.

I decided not to do this mod as I found a CLK55 airbox at a bargain I couldn't refuse (and no, he doesn’t have anymore). Since I never began this mod, the dividers are as stock.

Below are some pics; let me know if you need to see more. Please note that two of the brackets that hold the engine cover to the upper airbox were broken but have been repaired (see pics). This is not visible once installed and will have no impact on performance.

Asking price is $75 shipped. PayPal only, and no credit cards through PayPal. If you have questions, please PM me. Thanks for looking!
