Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Scored An Upgrade Intercooler / Heat Exchanger

Was able to order an upgrade intercooler / heat exchanger for a very reasonable price. You will have to resort to US import, meaning higher costs.

They are very hard to get in the Netherlands for a good price, so happy days! It’s only a matter of finding time as it should be a pretty straightforward installation.

Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Heatwrapping The Intake Tubes

A mod which has been tested on MBworld already, heatwrapping the intake tubes to keep as much heat out of them as possible. I had white heatwrap lying around, so I used that 🙂

Small supporting mod and a very easy DIY.

Work in progress

Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Heat Insulation Airboxes Part 2

Added extra heat insulation on the airboxes, as they sit on top of the hot V8 engine (almost like a “hot v” setup). They can use all the help they can need to keep the incoming air as cool as possible, and using gold heat reflective tape is one of them.

Volvo S80 2.4T Thermatec Teflon Intake Spacer (PTFE)

Bought a Teflon (PTFE) intake spacer for the intake manifold from Thermatec. It will isolate the intake manifold from the warm engine, which will result in lower intake temperatures. The phenolic spacers are identical in function, only the material used is different.

Lowering the Intake Air Temperature (IAT), will result in higher power figures. A simple supporting mod, which is quite inexpensive.

Pro tip: make a small indentation in the top left corner of the spacer where the bolt would go through the spacer/gasket (where the thermostat housing is), this will make the installation a lot easier due to the restricted space in that area.

Volvo S80 2.4T Team Heko Window Spoilers

Added Window Spoilers to the Volvo S80, I like the look but also they lower the wind noise when driving with open windows.

Also if it rains, you are still able to drive around with open windows, without any water ingress. And in the hot summers, you can safely let your windows down a little to stop the heat from building up in the car.
