Increase the horsepower with various alterations 

If you are a car enthusiast, or simply have the need for speed, there are various ways to improve your Mercedes’ performance. One of the most frequent methods of increasing horsepower is to install an upgraded cold air intake system. This is a cost-effective method of performance improvement. Other intervention methods include installing headers and high-flow catalytic converters and exhaust systems. For a complete overhaul, sometimes drivers insist on upgrading the entire intake and exhaust components at the high-performance level. Luckily for Mercedes drivers, these components are pretty powerful already in standard models, making it generally unnecessary to address issues of horsepower.

Do some engine reprogramming 

The Mercedes engine control unit, or ECU, is the computer component that keeps your performance levels where they should be. The ECU is programmed to balance fuel efficiency and stability in the engine. When a professional technician reprograms the ECU to make performance the primary goal, the ECU can allow for a significant increase in horsepower. Paradoxically, it may also help improve your fuel efficiency. There are ways that a knowledgeable individual could do this themselves; however, it is sternly recommended that you leave Mercedes engine reprogramming to the professionals. There is too much room for error, and serious issues could result from computer malfunctioning if done incorrectly.
