That weld may not be pretty (should have been done neater) but it is plenty strong.....not a single bracket has failed and we have had these out since January? On how many cars?....yes, looks ugly but is guaranteed plenty strong enough.

What until you drive it! I haven't had it on the street since we put the new turbos on it, but it was lots of fun with the old setup. Going to be a blast now.

This exact thing happened to one of my buddies with a stock 45th SS lol. He went with me for a ride last week and he texted me that his car doesn't seem fast anymore lol.

For me it was already having my LT's and coupled with the ARK DT-S is about the best exhaust I've heard anywhere-didn't want to screw with that. I think the SC/BOV will only add to the sonic insanity. I love the way the RX SC kit shows as well. IPF's setup looks more euro factory to me which is cool, just not my thing nor what I'm going for.

Like I said, my installer has no issues with the strength or durability. Aesthetically, he'd love to see a tidier weld. He would have preferred a solid spacer to the multi washer and that was his only gripe. I asked him last night about a solid one piece bracket and he said " Sure if you want to spend 5-6 hundred bucks on a part no one is ever going to see when this one does the same thing. Put that money into something else."

I'm going to trust his opinion as there isn't a speed shop in the country that wouldn't want this guys talent and expertise in their shop. He spent 20 plus years innovating in the SoCal street scene, fabricated on Pimp my Ride, Monster Garage and West Coast Choppers. Every mod he's ever done on my cars is solid and has stood the test of time. His work is cleaner than factory.

Tracy he'll prolly send you some very useful feedback. Whether you want it or not...LOL.
Conversely he might be picking your brain on a couple of issues with my bros' Kenne Bell SC.

If that bracket is not visible no big deal. I am sure strength is not an issue because your a pro and you know what is needed. Is there more to the mounting brackets? Something on the other end of the supper charger? Seems with the drive torque it would always be prying on the two bolts. Just curious.

I think this summarizes what the whole V6 FI thing is all about. Of course the 6.2 can be coaxed into 800-900HP but honestly out on the street unless you're running illegal tires and a track set up and ahem, breaking the law, its only useful in conversation at A&W on a Friday night.

Having a FI kit on a V6 is a bit unusual and a little offbeat but it gives you the power to play with just about anything out there.

I'll say before someone else does, then just buy an SS and mildly mod it.

Well, I could list some of the common reasons, but I'll refrain.
