FS: HPS GEN 1 Supercharger Kit C43 E55 W202 W210

I have my HPS GEN 1 Supercharger Kit for sale. Fits E55 and C43. Kit was bought brand new and used on a E55 AMG. Everything is in great shape. Tubing was sanded and powder coated. The only thing i will recommend to add to this kit would be Bosch 044 High Flow Fuel Pump. Asking price is: $2500. If interested you can call me at (302)290-7124.

I know on the 1st gen, the pulley size is different for the 43 vs 55. Make sure you let the customer know this important information. So there isn't an issue.

This is why the listing says that it was used on E55. So the kit does come with E55 pulley.

Yes it will fit. You have the same engine as the E55.

Ok, the reason I ask is you are advertising it for a 430 also. My friend owns a 2002 E430 and contacted HPS about the used kit. A sales rep told him the kit requires at least 15 more parts at a price of $1,500. So you're kit would cost $4,000 for anyone that doesn't own a E55.

I'm not trying to shoot you down or prevent you from selling the kit. I think forum members should be aware of this. I bought a used kit for a truck while back ago on Craigslist. I had no clue I had to purchase 2k worth of parts from Magnuson Products. I was pissed as hell, but the seller told me. (Sold as is)

My suggestion is contacting HPS to see if they can assist. The last thing any forum member wants is buying a kit and spending more money to make it complete.

[QUOTE=vioilio;4301029]I have my HPS GEN 1 Supercharger Kit for sale. Fits E55 and C43.

My quote was based on your orginal post. (Fits E55 and C43) 55 refers too 5.5 motor and 43 motor refers to 4.3 motor. FYI

reallllyyyyyyyy OMG

I'm pretty sure that my kit does not need $1500 in extra parts to fit anything else than e55. Any interested party will contact me before purchasing the kit so we can work all the details. The list that Adam from HPS send me contains everything you need to install in any M113 engine. The missing stuff is pretty much a bracket for the coolant tank (4.3L only), VW/Audi Coolant Tank (4.3L only), coolant tank relocation hose (4.3L only), breather hose. Well do the math and tell me if those parts are worth $1500. They cost $100 tops and.......

FIY:
I WILL PROVIDE ALL OF THIS IF THIS KIT GOES INTO 4.3L ENGINE!

Thank you for all the concerns you have and the time you took to address the issues with my HPS Kit.

The sales rep told me the 4.3 needs a new nose drive and pulley? I'm thinking this is where the cost is driven up. Plus HPS won't help on used party kits and would charge 100 bucks an hour

If I was going to buy a used kit I would go with the manufactor. The primary reason is a full warranty, customer support and knowing all the parts are new.

Hey, just my 2 cents.

Hope you sell your kit
