cold air industion
Any information on the B & B cold air system for a 2000 SL500? Does it help performance
any or how much?
Figure on a 20 hp. increase if that. It depends on other stuff you use with the cold air system too, like a cat back duel exhaust or a bigger dia. (2 & 1/2" +) single exhaust pipe, perf catalytic convertor, perf muffler. The formula is "more air in" & "more exhaust out" make it breathe! An air scoop might be tacky on a SL500, but an idea. Maybe there is a stock one from another model you could adapt? Don't forget the good high octane gas & synthetic oil change with premium spark plugs.
I used their system on my BMW 335i and there was a difference. The biggest thing it does is gets more cold air into the engine than the stock configuration. You will see some pick up in performance and fuel mileage.
Thanks Mark. I'll be ordering the B&B intake soon.
Thanks James. It's good to hear someone respond that purchased a similar item and is satisfied with it.I'll order one soon.
