Very good condition. Modded the right way to perfectly fit the CLK430. Comes with K&N filters with less than 10k miles on them. $150 plus shipping in the USA.

Bill, a picture will help your cause a lot. Also post this in the 210 forum. The Airbox fits a 210. The "for sale" section is another good spot. Good luck

It is the CLK55 box modded to fit the 430. It is in excellent condition and does come with newish K&N filters. $200 gets it to your doorstep in San Jose.

Just wanted to to express my gratitude to Bill again. He went way above and beyond with this sale. This was my first purchase off any forum and I could not be any more impressed. Would buy from him again :thumbsup:

And how are the results?
Nicer sound?
I just put it on yesterday and have driven it twice. I imagine that its going to take a bit to adapt to the increase in airflow so I haven't seen too noticeable of gains. maybe a little more pull in the mid to upper rpms. As for sound, it could be my imagination but i swear the exhaust has a lower burble to it in park. the previous owner also removed the secondary cats so it was already a bit better sounding than the totally stock exhaust.

I'll report back in once i have had more time behind the wheel with it.

You can get a faster powerful feel afforded by the 55 air box by resetting the ECU. It will reconfigure your sensor settings, working with most agressive or sporting parameters.
Check out the forum search for ECU reset

I looked through a thread on it (cant find the official write up.) saw a number of replies reporting problems with the transmission shifting after doing the soft reset. not sure i like the sound of that given that my tranny has already been acting up lately :(

get in the car and close the doors with the windows up, turn the key on to the second click but don't start, depress the throttle and hold down for 20 seconds. keep the throttle down and turn off the key and remove. wait 20 seconds and release the throttle. That may not be 100% accurate but will get the job done and it won't mess with your tranny.

Reset will cure most ecu related problems. It works on small glitches and will not make anything worse. It helps the car react faster. It will not create any new problems.
