CLK430
Hi
I have a nice Mercedes CLK430 and was hoping to squeeze some extra ponies out of it my budget is alright but not huge. I hear that parts from different AMG cars are interchangeable, perhaps I could swap some parts from the E55 W210 and put them into my CLK430 such as the manifold, throttle body etc? But I am not entirely sure.

Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi
Use the E55(210)/CLK55(208)/C43(202) Air box, fuel pump, filter and injectors, decent plugs and leads and a proper rolling road re-map, you should see over 300BHP possibly as much as 320BHP

Why not just transplant a 500 engine and remap accordingly?

Suggest you talk to MSL in Birmingham: https://mslperformance.co.uk/ They're well regarded in the Merc world. You'll see and hear some great vehicles even if you just visit the shop. And they have Imran doing his Torqueflow exhaust work on the same site; he did a lovely job on my E500 with a muffler delete last year.
