Hi All,

Well I have spoke with Simon/Ben (Kleemann) and HPS (Adam or Mark?) about the superchargers for the CLK55.

When I first spoke with every tuner I could find about the Kleemann they all said it was too much boost and the ODBII setup would not correct itself. The compression would be raised to high as well. At the time, Brandon offered it to me for $9500.00 and I turned it down.

Now it seems that nothing is better than the Kleemann. (Quick correction of the marketplace when members become resellers and change vendors...)

I thought the concept of the HPS unit was good and the price was right, but not enough HP to warrant $8500.

I just read through a thread on MBWorld between JT55, Adam and Ben. Unreal.

I have only found 3 members who have superchargers, JT55, Mach430 (Ben) and someone named Timster from two forums.

Timster is trying to sell his car 2 months after the Kleemann, Ben resells Kleemann. JT55 is the only "non-biased" person I can find out there.

Is there anyone out there other than the same 3 members that have done either an supercharger or a cam, heads... upgrade.

Is it better to just sell the CLK55 and get an 03 E55.

I am looking forward to the input.

I've been hearing alot of talk about Kleemann Superchargers.

Anyone has any input on the RennTech SuperCharger for the CLK55. Supposely adds another 105 * to the stock 340 HP. I haven't dyno-ed my 2002 CLK yet.

But was wondering if anyone had any feedback on RennTech's work.
