Kleemann tuning kits for Mercedes 5.5 V8 AMG Kompressor engine

German Mercedes specialist, Kleemann, has developed a new series of tuning products for the AMG 5.5 litre V8 Mercedes-Benz engine with Kompressor.

There are four basic stages, K1 to K4. All components can be used individually, in predetermined sets, or in a customer defined matrix.
