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.
