Taking delivery of mine soon and wondering if the pulley/ITG filter for the current 2.3 liter is likely to fit?<br> <br> Any ideas?

Not from the picture of the motor I've seen but...

If you want to do some leg work and invest some time, do what I did for the 2.3. Call Lee at ASP Racing and see if he'll make it if you send him a factory pulley (he's said yes before for the 2.3 for the C230 Coupe and older SLK230s). Then go to the dealer and buy a factory pulley and ship it to him. You'll have to do all the measurements to see how big you can make it before it interferes with something. I made a cardboard cutout of the pulley and put it behind the factory pulley and see if it hits anything. Give him the dimensions and he'll make you one. The alternative is to wait about a year for the tuners to figure it out. Save the middleman and you save wait time and $$$. It helps if you have a few people that also want it and are ready to buy it if it works.
