I am interested in increasing the bhp of my 1997 C230k W202. Is it worth buying performance air filters etc?
I dont want an engine remap as the car has covered 145k miles, so do not want too much extra strain on the engine.
What are my best options?

The kompressor engine is good for 400 bhp on standard internals. You wont even begin to stress it with what you've got planned before the remap. A new kompressor pulley may release a few more horses.

As sad get yourself an undersized pulley for the compressor, decent breathing, filters and exhaust,If yo can justify the price stainless manifold,sports, cats, decent exhaust system,bigger intercooler then a re-map so you get the car set up to get the best from the mods
