Don't laugh. So many were destroyed by gas tank fire and other natural and un-natural causes the Ford Pinto has become a rarity. Don't believe me - just try to find a good 1970 example.

Thanks! Do you know where I can find this info? Is that US only numbers?




The CLA has potential!




LMAO, let's all hope.
if you guys can do an ECU flash and upgraded turbo kit, that would be great. I know this 2.0T motor will have potential. I am assuming stuff from the 2.0T AMG will swap over considering they are the same basis.

Tuning would definitely be great, an upgraded turbo tho, that would probably be the last thing we would develop. When a car is already turbo, your best bet is the bolt ons (intake, exhaust, intercooler) and then tune before you even think about upgrading the turbo. But I feel ya and if we do move into this platform I would expect us to do a whole line of parts to start you guys off and to be there when the bigger moves are needed :)

i was thinking upgraded turbo because i know Mercedes limited their 1.8T engine :(. I hope this isnt the case here.

1. The 2.0T from the CLA45 has major component upgrades.
2. I would wait until end of warranty to tinker with the engine unless the company that sells the add ons will guarantee an intact MB factory warranty.

I won't be doing anything engine wise for at least 10 15k miles

ah okay...well hopefully something from the AMG can swap over. Yeah i wouldnt really tinker with the engine untill the warrenty is up either, but the Brabus parts do keep the warrenty intact, even though its pricey.

Exactly why we will start with the small bolts ons and then move to the bigger power adders as time (and warranty) goes by.
