“All Show”, “All Go” or Both, Why?
Midnight Kompressor is built for show with a few tasteful performance modifications. The C230 came stock with a supercharger and I have done the few items that will improve performance like a custom dual exhaust and a supercharger tune. The look of the car is what makes it a show winner and I will continue to build on that.
