Am going to pick up my 07 tomorrow and wanted to find out from someone who has replaced the stock air box with the aftermarket high flow one. Has always helped every other vehicle I have owned and will be the first of many modifications to "help with the gas mileage" lol!!

Went looking at the Cayman S models and now that the 09 SLK's are out this was such a great deal I could not pass it up. Getting a loaded certified low mileage (with new rear tires no less) AMG for many thousands less than a Cayman. Now my wife will not have the only Benz in the garage….

I've got Green filters on mine, you can get them through SLKworld dot com. It improves gas mileage, sounds better than the oems and improves exhaust noise slightly. Checkout the site I referred for more information.

i swapped the old airbox on my 350 with the one "Sport" and the gas mileage decreased a lot.
Now I spend more in gasoline then before..

You can gain around 20 rwhp just by replace your air box with the factory E55 supercharger air box. Cheap mods ($450) when compared to renntech air box ($1500). Contact Vadim for more info at 1-949-584-4446.

I find those gains hard to believe. Perhaps you would experience a gain from a SC 55, but no way on a NA 55. Also, has anyone swapped this out on a SLK?

Thanks for the info!! Going to try and find the X Pipe(any ideas)—I like noise.. My old bike would have my ears ringing for several hours after just a half hour ride!!

First day ----- :mad::eek: picked up a nail in one of the brand new Continentals! A good excuse to get a set of the new Eagle F1 Asymmetricals!:D

I've got the SuperSprint X pipe which also builds the X pipe on the Carlssons, it such a quality product and installs easily. Knowing that its made in Italy, its a top product and sounds great on any 55.

Here is a video of my car with the X pipe and Kleemann secondary catalytic converters.
