C180 Kompressor 2003
I have developed a very simple tuning box for C 180 Kompressor. Development and test is done on my own MY 2003, but I would like test reports from installations on 2004b and later, preferably low-mileage engines.
Installation is fully reversible and safe but requires cutting into the engine cable harness at one point.
Candidates are knowledgable with OBD2 logging from eg. Torque in a smartphone.

Results on my car is so far (tested on rolling road) up from 139 to 155hp, but my car has its issues. There is no reason this box would not provide the same results as other vendors boxes i.e. cirka 25hp on a healthy M271.

(thin red line is with box)


Any questions? ask them here.

Once test are complete the box may or may not be available for sale to the general public. This is not an advert, please do not contact me by PM unless you are a test candidate.

If you develop one for the C270CDI (ml) i would be interested in 'testing' it.

From a quick search i see that there are already several different boxes available for the 270CDI from cirka £99 and up. Very little point in developing yet another box for that engine.

For the C180K, however, there is pretty much only one, very expensive, available.
