isn't that a lot for the kit? I think i remember seeing it cheaper.... brand new...

i remember someone posting a link to a store.... it wasn't one of those fake ones either. It ran for a shy over 2K.<br> <br> Good Luck though<p>c928007-a.frmt1.sfba.home.com

For less than $2500..you can get brand new AMG sport body kits (included two front foglights) at....

He's keeping the car because the next CLK is not a V8. Keep your current CLK 55 because it's going

to a collector's car.<p>dhcp04.bramasol.com

Clkman..That's hard to believe but i don't care. At long as they make it more powerful then the.....

<br> current V8. I love to have that C32 AMG engine in the CLK. Is the second fastest production car behind the Slk 32 for Mercedes ( under $200,000).<p>63-93-67-29.lsan.dial.netzero.com

You can supercharge your CLK55 at minimum psi and still beat the C32 and SLK32. C32/SLK32 ain't have

torque of supercharged V8. Look at Latrell Spreewell's car. It's pushing more than 400HP on wheels.<br> <p>dhcp04.bramasol.com

Clkman...That's true !! But then, for that kindna money...why don't you just buy a "FERRARI"! I....

<br> not put a superchager in a 55 with such a high 'compression' engine (it almost like having a supercharger in it already)without lower the compression to 8 or 9.0 to 1. Even with low boost, with out lower the engine compression. You are now running the engine at a 12 to 13 to 1 compression. Those kind of engine compression are only in 'RACE' car and race car they rebuild their's engine after every race.<br> <p>63-93-73-218.lsan.dial.netzero.com

Ok, I'm gonna say this one more time: you have to figure in the cost of paint! Which is over $1000

You really need to educate yourself on compression and boost...

10:1 is not a 'high-compression' engine. The new M3 at 11.5:1...<u>that</u> is a high-compression motor and various tuners (such as G-power and ESS) already have a supercharger for that engine as well (4-5psi max). Dinan has supercharger kits for the BMW 540i which as we all know is a V8 and has a compression ratio of 10:1...do you see Dinan blowing up 540s left and right? Please educate yourself on engine dynamics, and understand the relationship between compression ratios and boost pressure before you make incorrect/misleading statements.<p>ion-wc1-ria.sprinthome.com

O.k!!! PROFFESOR SAMIR !!!!!! Educate me...but first try try answer this....................

<br> Just because aftermarket company built a superchager/turbo kit for a 10:1 compression engine, it does not mean it safe. They make you think that is safe because they want $$$$$ from you.The issue here is 'reliable'. How reliable is this engine gonna be. It sure not gonna give you a 100,000 miles engine trouble free like it was suppose to be when the factory design it. Aftermarket company know better. But if they design the right superchager/turbo kit with a lower conpression engine. No one would want to buy it because it would be too much costly and involve in install the kit! Two way, to lower the engine compression is through 'head gasket' or the right way and best way is by changing 'piston' to a lower compression. This involve disassemble the whole engine and the cost is $$$$ to install that is why they don't do it. If look at all the factory that built supercharger/turbo for their's car like Toyota,Nissan, Porches,lotus,BWM (69'2002 tii)Jaguar etc. Name one of this factory that stick a supercharger/turbo in their's 10:1 engine? NONE !!!! Thank you, the case is rest. All of this factory are supercharger/turbo with only 8:1-9:1 COMPRESSION ENGINE. Why? Why don't you go educate yourseld and aks them why. Here is another company that make everyone think/feel safe with their's products is 'NOS'. Everyone that i know used 'NOS' in their's engine had two things happen to them. They all had their's engine blew up! Only one person had his engine rebuild because piston 'ring' were busted! Using 'NOS' and supercharger/turbo had the same effect stress on the motor.<br> Now, we both agree that 11.5:1 compression on the e46 M3 and 911 (non turbo model) are high right? So by sticking a supercharger/turbo kit into an 10:1 engine, now you just turn the 10:1 engine into a 12:1 or higher and you think that is safe!! You are crazy if they think it safe!!You ask me whether or not i see 540 blowing up left and right with supercharger/turbo kit. The answer to that is 'YES'!!! also include the e36 M3 at the 'SCCA' track event. BMW are notorious for cracking head! Why? because of too much stress cause by heat. I had owned e30 & e 36 M3 since in the 90's. I am currently a member of this club called 'ROUNDEL'. Do you know what they are? I don't think so!! Then you don't know jack about BMW. Look!!! If you afraid my post is misleading because it might put you and your's little aftermarket company out of business in the future. Don't worry you guys are a good liar!!!!<br> <p>66-42-118-165.lsan.dial.netzero.com

RE: You STILL need to educate yourself...

How much boost are the factory kits running with compression ratios of 8.5-9.3:1? 1bar+...do you know what 1bar is equal to? 14.7 psi. Obviously then, boosting 14.7+psi on a 10:1 compression motor wouldn't be wise...therefore all the major tuners who have supercharger/turbo applications, run conservative boost pressures of 7psi or less on compression ratios over 10:1 and in the case of Kleemann, incorporate an intercooler to cool the intake charge. As for the cars that you've seen 'blow up', I've seen Porsche Turbos and Toyota Supras blow up as well...what's your point? There will always be 'showoffs' at the track who overboost their engines, leading to disastrous effects.<br> <br> I was merely trying to post my bodykit for sale and never 'spammed' the board about the Kleemann kit that we offer...someone asked where they could get a kompressor kit installed and I told them we could do it if they were in LA, nothing wrong with that. I really don't care to discuss this further with you because you have been fed a lot of misleading information and are now spreading this ignorance over the internet and confusing people even more. <br> <br> Samir<br> <br> BTW...I am a member of the BMWCCA #176281 and get the Roundel on a regular basis. I have owned a supercharged E46 BMW with a 3.2L M3 transplant that we built last year. The car ran fine...never had a single problem...that was with 10.5:1 compression and 9.5psi of intercooled boost.<p>ion-wc1-ria.sprinthome.com
