All,

New member here attempting to do some research.

Reviewing a used 2003 E500.

Looking for engine mods for it. So:

A) Will an E55 engine fit? If so, leads and prices will be greatly appreciated.

B) Install a SuperCharger/Kompressor? I've only seen 2 vendors, HPS and HOP (HOP never returned my email requesting a datasheet of pricing)

I'm aware Magnusson/Eaton is the actual SC vendor. So what else is included in the "Kit" from HPS that you cant order directly from Eaton/Mag?

Lotta questions, Answers appreciated.

Thanks!

The AMG Compressor Engine WILL FIT...BUT It WILL Take a LOT of Money to do the conversion right...and still the car is NOT a REAL AMG car...

Then One wont have the correct brakes/rims/suspension...etc

Complete Engine WITH Wire Harness / ME and EIS control units wkeys

It would be a LOT Cheaper to sell the car and buy a REAL AMG E55

Do your self a favor and research HPS.......Hear and at the (OTHER) MB Forums
Sift through this thread....Need Advice on Adding More Power to HPS SC - MBWorld.org Forums

HOP makes a decent Vortect system...Great Gains!

Check out renntechmercedes. They have many mods for that vehicle. I will say it will be less money potentially to buy the actual 03 E55. However, if you really love your 500 go right ahead.

Good luck.

Gentlemen, thanks for the advice.

Question concerning the HPS or any other SC package:

Is there one that mounts in the center of the engine block, such as with the AMG?

The symmetry is a work of art.

I've only seen the HPS mounted to the driver's right.

Thanks!


FYI: Why not get an E55? I live in Northern, VA DC suburbs.

The traffic and roads are an insult to the engineering and hardwork of the AMG craftsmen. Just dont feel like it really does the machine justice.

Any thoughts on the SC symmetry are greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
