i was looking at the list from kleemann's homepage, and i saw:

Advanced Performance Industries
6040 Cerritos Avenue
Cypress, CA 90630

DC Performance Inc.
3370 South Livonia Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90034

Lucent Motors

i am looking to get kleemann headers or maybe LSD for my slk55, just wondering where i should go for them:confused:

Good thinking as the modifications you are planning can improve midrange and low end torque, whilst the LSD decrease wheel spin and improve handling at the track and at WOT from zero.

MBslr wannabe, I would just like to say why not have your ecu upgraded by kleemann and add green filters and with that you are looking at 32-35hp and your knocking on the door of 392-395hp probably to the engine.

When you get Kleemann headers you do get their "200 cell 3 inch Primary Sportcatalytics'' included.

Ive heared good things about "lucent" from the Porsche Crowd, It doesnt matter as long as they are dealers and certifed/authorised from Kleemann and able to install the parts.

wouldn't the headers cause less trouble than the ECU upgrade? i'm definately not cool with the tuner keeping my car overnight, so i would wanna be simpler tasks first. the only thing stopping me from getting the mods RIGHT NOW is the fact that i paid for the extended MB warranty that covers 5 years/100k miles, so i'm not sure if i'd wanna run the risk of any kind of malfunctions from any upgrades which would not be covered my warranty. the headers wouldn't void my warranty would it? i guess i'll give lucent a call and ask about their pricing and etc.
