What's with you?

It at least appeared that you used to trust and respect my opinions on parts, but now that I work for Evosport, my opinions are no longer reliable? We don't make a business off of pushing parts. Instead we examine and test practically every product we sell. Wouldn't that only make my posts more reliable? While obviously I wouldn't mind if my posts happen to get someone's business, that is not why I post. If my posts bother you, instead of posting comments that make it seem like I'm a POS, please just ignore them for now on.

I have Kleemann suspension, and soon the supercharger.

The 430K puts out 430HP and 409lbs torque. Kleemann's fixed price for the 430 Kompressor is $14,350 plus labor. Their brakes are modified Brembo's, which perform slightly better, but either Brembo's or Kleemann brakes would provide more than enough stopping power for the CLK.

I might be able to get close with my 430....

I'll be installing the Kleemann in the next month or so... although it is a guessing game as to how much power I will end up with, it will probably be somewhere between 430 and 550... maybe 480?

My mistake, I just combined what I saw there with waiting for a non sales impression of the shocks..

You know, you can upgrade the Kleemann kit further :)

One of the Kleemann dealers told me that you can change the size of the pulleys (if I remember correctly) on a stock 430 with a Kleemann supercharger to get 500HP. Doing this would increase the airflow, and put more strain on the engine, but I'm not sure how much. It's possible that having less power than the 55K, you may be quicker due to the traction issues of putting 500HP and close to 600lbs torque to the wheels.

If I can get anywhere...

close to 480-500 hp by putting the Kleemann on top of my existing setup, I'm not going to do the pulleys. When I last spoke to Mr. Vanos, he seemed to think the engine wear caused by the pulleys was significant.
