finally got around to finish how I want the airbox to look. The decal may or may not be familiar with some...:D. thinking about the 55 front cover or custom one...not sure yet.

like it or not...speak now or forever hold your peace...;)

p.s. 32 airbox still for sale ;)

I personally like the stock airbox that says Mercedes Benz ... No offense but I feel that looks incomplete. I prefer popping the hood and having a clean and solid looking engine bay. Most people don't know what engine it has anyway, unless they own a MBZ.

Just throw in a s/c and it'll be finished! lol j/k nice mod.

Tri-star, stock amg airbox doesn't say "mercedes" on them. you lost me with the last bit ...
The stock non-amg airbox says mercedes which is what I'm refering to. The amg airbox has the middle cut out for a supercharger correct? That is why I think it looks incomplete and to throw in a kompressor. :D

The hoses...they are rubber right? vs the plastic originals or are they rubber on 32's?

they're hard rubber insulation pipe. much better insulation than the original thin plastic.

I see...what i would do is paint or get black hose clips, the chrome are sticking out like a soar thumb...and they would be less noticeable.
You know what i mean?

PS> Frank, when you installed Teins did you use spring compression tool? I been doing some research and since i have Teins sitting waiting to be installed i want to make sure i have all tools that can make this a breeze.
