    I have plenty of clamps and couplers arent too hard to get. I was just curious as to how you were able to manage to tighten the coupler on that dinky hose.

    Right, will do. I'm guessing this is due to not having the heat shield yet, or maybe the maf, but I also notice that below 2000rpm I'm not getting the torque I should. Once it gets above 2k it revs fine and the blower whines, but if I stomp it from a standstill it takes.....it's......time....and then it flies away. The feeling I'm getting from my foot is like the electronic throttle isn't letting me floor it.

    your car is set up for a certain air flow and now the mixture is wrong stock is better and no real power gain is done buy fitting there filters only noise that is unless you dino the car and get it remap-ed

    pls fit a heat shield please

    not helping the car as it is

    This is simply not true. This guy did a simple intake mod and got massive gains. Your mileage may vary of course.

    yes i read that long time ago

    i have a c230 and no unless you do more then just fit filters you are not gaining any thing and to prove it i had this done to my c230 and got it on a rolling road and yes no gain just noise the guy that drifted his car did a lot more then just filters read the whole thread

    i have been working on w202 for years and know all the tricks you might think your going faster in your head due to the wine from kompressor but no , UNLESS you get it REMAP-ED

    I definitley feel a better response from the throttle, thats good enough for me. As for HP gains, Im sure their minimal, same goes with a muffler/high flow res. Nothing can be proven unless it's dyno'd, but I dont have the money for that, and dont care for it. I feel a difference than from the stock air box.

    It pushes me harder into my seat so I am sure it's a bit faster. You are right, though a remap would help and when I get the cash I am getting that canned tune.

    i've signed up on this forum just to say.. thanks for this info guys!! I been stuck trying to figure out how Im gon have to mod my w202k for CAI on how I'm going to fab the connection from the kompressor intake to a filter cone. It never crossed my mind that a simple intake dock should do it. I was thinking welding some aluminum pipe through it.Thankz! ALthough I would like to only use one filter for both intakes, get a Y pipe working of some sort. I beleive there is one already premade out there. I'm excited to finally start on this mod.

    Could guys post some pics of how you connected the intake dock to kompressor valve... I'm guessing you need to put some kind of metal/rubber/cardboard in between? Since the 3" dock does not fit perfectly from kompressor valve. I started after work, but didn't have enough time to get it all together. Tomorrow for sure!! Thanx

    This intake set up is sucking up all the hot air from the engine compartment. I don't think you'll gain anything at all.

    Build a heat shield out of sheet metal from the home depot. I always preach this when people do an intake on the inside. Its not complicated. Just use your imagination ^^

    I am happy to say that tonight I have finished my cold air intake using all the parts provided in prior threads. So far it is keeping it a lot cooler than it used to be, there were gaps and holes in my old air box. I am so thankful for you guys figuring this stuff out the hard way 10+ years ago. My car whines and feels a little more boosty. My c230 has 120k miles on it. I am wondering how many of you still have yours and what other mods you guys have done.

    Right not sure if my post deleted itself but I'll go again of its there sorry
    My car died for unknown reasons at around 175k
    I did a full head rebuild at 140k sense I had a bad headgasket on cyl4
    Mods were
    Ported and polished head (bad casting but best gains cut a second off my 0-60time)
    Cai
    Kleemen pully (goto a local machinist with a spare pully he can make you one for cheap)
    Mesh screen delete by the throttle and somewhere else idk anymore lol
    W203 tubular header (they will fit but you need to turn it into a short header to clear motor mount
    3in? Header back exhaust (1st time was catless and no res just 2 old borla mufflers vette style ) will set off alarms at idle I promise you this later put on a heavy metal cat and 18in glass pack res still like 3in
    Was working on the loudmouth mod for the s.c inlet there is a x baffle in there removing it gains 3-4 psi increase alone its a bitch
    Here's my f.b I have alot of my picks on there of everything its been a long time sense I had the car but it was fun Def miss it
