C230 2002 Intercooler upgrade

Hey Guys,

I have a Renntech C230, with a power pulley and was looking for an upgraded intercooler. Unfortunately Renntech discontinued production of their intercooler https://www.benzworld.org/forums/atta...r170_80244.jpg … I was wondering if there was anywhere else that one might be purchased. If anyone owns one I would like to know the specs (so that I may have one custom built) core thickness, height, inlet and outlet diameter. Also I was wondering if anyone has had any luck with a header (supersprint ect)?

Thanks in advance, Roger

Search a little, there's one intercooler someone tried recently with bad results - I believe they suspected that a remap was needed to get more power, as they ended up with less.

Here's the thread I'm thinking of:

I wanted to get a Renntech interncooler for my kid's SLK230 because it's proven to effectively reduce power by about 12HP and she drives way to fast, this would get her to calm down. If you hear of one let me know.

Buellwinkle I have a question for you. I've noticed that you mentioned trying several intercoolers, but all resulted in less horsepower. However, did you determine if they were more efficient at cooling the air as this is really the purpose of an intercooler?

Just put a really plugged air filter in. She'll get better mileage, too.
