That's my car. I had downloaded this real cool movie app on my iPhone and made it.

No you can see them good, just that under the hood in those corners it's hard for the iPhone to see. I will post some with my high end camera.

Mine was gonna ship today but Tracy left early cuz he got sick but he was certain mine will ship tomorrow. And i will have pics of it all laid out nicely, pics of install process in the garage, and pics of it complete. I'll try to get videos but I will certainly have some dyno numbers before final tune and after final tune

For me I always liked the way the SC sounded.Back in 2010 when I was looking to buy a Camaro I was back and forth between a V6 and a 1ss.When i saw that video from Lingenfelter of that supercharged V6,that was it, I orderd a 1lt and one day it would be supercharged,well almost 2 years later it finally happened and I love it.

I too love the sound of the supercharger and don't care for turbo lag too much. What made me decide to not sleep until I got it was this guy^ heres in person. And now I should have mine back by the end of the week Rx charged!

Factory speed limiter is removed. Gretchen has the new turbos on, waiting to here the results.

We can now do one SC install every 3 days with the new facility almost finished.

On the TT in 3rd boost is up at about 45mph if I recall right. But I love to WOT when it's at 50-55mph that when it's REALLY flying. I have gotten up to 110 in third then into 4th fastest I have gone is 121. It's so fast and easy to reach I never needed to go any further. 1st & 2nd are so brutal and crazy I tend to TRY and stay out of it if I can . Boost is even nice in 6th gear, you punch it and it's in instant boost. But at a smoother rate and you won't know until you look at the dial to see that your flying.

And yes like Tracy said with the tune you are automatically limiter free. But if you don't already, get the proper tires for high speeds.

I'll try to fill everyone in as soon as I can. It was a long hot day of tuning, but it went well. Have a bit more tweaking to do but the boost comes on strong well below the stall and climbs thorughout the RPM range. Torque down low is awesome. Still running pump gas only on the stock pump so we could probably make more power later, but staying where we are for no. These things are very different than other turbos we've used, so getting the boost just right is a bit challenging. It's not going to make monster power, but we have a MUCH wider power band. Should be perfect for the road course and still do well in the 1/4.

Okay I promised more details, but I don't have pics/video.

We were still having some trouble with the boost controller. The had to put it back on the rack yesterday to swap out my wide-band sensor and install the tranny cooler, so the rechecked everything and found the issue (had the boost reference setup wrong for an internal waste gate). Now the thing is really rocking, but we need to retune it. Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to get over there until tomorrow.

On the HPFP, looks like the one Vince has is messed up. I'm going to try and send him mine to see if it works. It may take a bit of time for that. In the mean time we are going to try 50:50 meth/water and see what we can get out of her. The guy at GPI thinks we should now get mid to high 400s for RWHP.

One more thing...WOW does the boost come on hard and fast. The torque curve shoots straight up. The the stall I'm running we have to actually start the logs at about 4000 RPM, but it has already hit peak torque well before that time and then it is just flat through about 5500 and then a slow decline to redline. The power under the curve is just awesome. Too bad these EFRs are so expensive...certainly the way to go on the medium displacement motors.

Let' me finish tuning and take it for a few spins on the track and some back roads and I'll be able to give you a better idea. Right now I can say I AM VERY IMPRESSED!

Yeah, on the Indy cars using similar GM high feature V6's to ours. If I'm not mistaken I believe they are 2.8 liters? I await your review!
