2004 Mercedes Benz C180 Kompressor

Hi Guys & Girls,
I have a 2004 MB C180K Classic and was looking to get more power out of it.
Can anyone recommend any engine ecu upgrades or can I just replace the pulley on the supercharger to get more performance?
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Joe

You bought the wrong Mercedes if you're looking for performance... ECU tune possible. No available supercharger pulley. Regardless you can do a lot and get very little HP out of the engine in your car. Better off selling and buying a c32 or do engine/transmission swap.

Thanks for the reply.
It's my wifes car and she has had it for about 6 years so I didn't have a choice in car.
Are there any well known places to go for the ecu tune?
Selling car is not at option at the moment.
Thanks
Joe

It's not a car they would normally handle, but I suggest contacting Eurocharged as they are a main tuner for our vehicles. As for the supercharger pulley you can have it milled down slightly by a machine shop to increase overall boost. Intake, and exhaust work might give you a few gains (and definitely more sound) as well.
