Exclamation Rx Performance Supercharger doubts!

Well guys I have an 2010 ABM 2LT that I recently decided to start modifying. I started with none other than the cold air intake and have long tubes on the way. See my plan was to hit the bolt ons then throw a supercharger on the puppy. Well then I started reading how you can't use bolt ons with the IPF supercharger as of now (excluding some cai and exhaust) due to the self tuning they do. Well then I was informed of the Rx Performance supercharger kit. After that I clicked on Tracy's profile and seen that the man was located 15 minutes south of me in Bradenton, FL. I gave the shop a call and asked if there was any way I could come in to test one of these big boys out for myself considering there are no "numbers" out on the www. Well it just so happened that the fellow C5 member Smoke was having his done and they were finishing it up today. Well he agreed to let me drive it if I came out there after work. When I got there they were just taking it off the jacks and I got in and Tracy took me for a ride. I was about to hit record on my camera so I could show my ricer friend how fast these beasts were when the thing threw me back in the seat so hard my phone fell in my lap. After he got a little ways down the road he pulled off and let me in the drivers seat.. This is how I felt once I hit the throttle.. <-- that was obnoxious but get yourself to Bradenton and you will understand. This morning I was dying to see numbers. Tonight I don't care if I ever see the numbers to be honest. What these guys have done is truly amazing. Tomorrow I am opening a new savings account to have until I have the money for this monster of a kit in a few months. I'm not adding more bolt ons, hell, I'm not even going bowling haha, I am going to save until I can join the Rx charged club.

Very friendly crew.

Even better product.

I am completely sold.



Thank you Smoke for letting me drive your monster!

Well this is very reassuring since my car just arrived at Tracy's shop yesterday for some supercharger love. Thanks for the write up!

Good to see that another has driven Smoke car other than me and has the same reviews. Numbers and times are good for advertisement and all. But at the end of the day it's what the customer thinks and recommends to the other potential customers that matter. Nice review and the RX Army continues to grow.

I'm not too sure tbh, it was pre cut from a website I ordered from. I can measure them once I get my car, or if you don't want to wait you can ask Tracy

I'm jealous of all you guys being able to just drive over and check out his shop! Can't wait until I get to Florida on the 11th to get my car and check out his (new) place.
