    Is that the case with the R171 SLK55's as well?

    They are ready for you :) Just need to order the down pipes as the SLK55 and the C55 are the same.

    On the Kleemanns, our Engineering manager at work, who designed and built his own long tube headers for a Rover V8, raved about how good the Kleemanns on mine were - very impressed.

    Now I know no one here knows him so would have to take it with a pinch of salt - but this guy is an excellent engineer from the work I have seen (including a fabricated metal part to fix my folding wing mirror saving me £400!).

    Looking in to this with a lot of interest, but I think I need to do so much more research before I commit, so maybe a bit to early for me.....

    Unless this is the best possible solution for replacement headers, no matter what other mods I do?

    I would appreciate advice from you guys, but really don't want to go down this route and then have to change them in the future, if I can ever justify going Weistec, etc in the future.

    I have wasted money in the past doing stuff that I then changed 6 months later because It was not what I wanted, will never do that again, thats why I ask so many questions.

    Thanks for your help

    Fair comment Mark and I too have done a lot of reading and research. Do likewise and then come back when you are ready.

    As ChrisA said they work perfectly with a Weistec ... and if anyone should know what works on a 55K and what doesn't by now I would think Chris is your man given the journey he and his car have been through!

    Kleeman will be the best and work perfect on the Weistec Chargers.

    you will not need to change headers again.

    Does it make much difference to the sound? Before and after sound clips anyone? I assume that the £1400 does not include any mapping work afterwards?

    I had manifolds on my V8 M5 and it was 442bhp (up from a standard 400) after it was all done and sounded epic

    cheers
