Hey everyone i'm new to this forum and thought that this would be the best place to find out some information.
I'm the owner of a stock 2001 C180. my question is that has anyone made a conversion with one of these to kompressor spec (i.e supercharged) i have in my posession a blower off a C180 kompressor.
Now i was wondering if anyone knows if this is compatible with my car, is there any differences between a C180 and a C180 kompressor engine wise, if not is there a difference in ECU, injector size, compression ratio, manifold differences, or the need for a map sensor? If anyone has done anything like this or can give me any helpful advice please let me know.

Thanx for your help.

Cheers Quinn

I'm not entirely sure, as i said i'm new to the mercedes scene, i was hoping that they were idientical so i could just do a bolt on application, i noticed that there is an air flow meter and was not sure if it required a map sensor to read positive air pressure. Judging by the way the blower is set up i believe it would require an intercooler as the exit point of the blower faces away from the throttle body, by the sounds of it if i was to to go ahead with this which i am keen to do, it may require the use of an aftermarket computer and i may need to put a shim in to decompress the compression ratio a little. any other thoughts?????

It might be cheaper to do an engine swap rather than supercharging your current engine. Another thing to consider is a turbo conversion from Mosselmann.

You will need to re-map the ECU not only does it have to account for high combustion pressures to control detonation, it will also need to control the bypass valve.
