Supercharger boost question

How much boost does the ipf supercharger put out with just the supercharger installed?

People have run different boost levels from what I have read. It has ranged from 7-10# boost

Sycraft is correct for the IPF SC

RX is capable to up a pulley for more boost

Hello !

We tested smaller SC Pulleys for the LFX Camaro during our development .. we got more boost .. of course .. but NOT more power !!

Every engine has its maximum (optimum) cylinder pressure level ... when you are running toooooo much boost on a certain compression level ... you must run LESS ignition advance with higher BOOST to keep the engine away from knocking ... therefore you can also run the engine MORE Rich below AFR10 but you are loosing power anyway !

So MORE BOOST is NOT giving MORE POWER all the way ... we testet the optimum between boost level and engine power and deliverd the optimum boost level with the IPF-SC Kit for the bone stock engine and 91Oct west coast fuel qualtity with the devil heat in Arizona !

with 93Oct east coast fuel we did special tuning maps to cover the fuel quality !

It can but it doesn't mean it's supposed to. The reality is that at regular unleaded, the car is pulling a lot of timing and can be running a lot better with 93 octane. You even get better MPG at higher octane (well at least I do).

I believe the lower octane is inpart of the direct injection into the cylinder not on top of the intake valve. But with more boost higher octane helps out alot.

Okay, that makes sense. Will the supercharger decrease my gas mileage?

Overall my MPG is about the same with the IPF SC. This is when I'm doing about 70% highway an 30% city driving. I'm holding at about 23 mpg. However when you have this kind of performance increase you want to use it
I see a slight increase on highway and a decrease in the city

Same with me out here in Arizona. I do my trips back to California almost every month in my LLT Auto IPF SC camaro, my trip is about 400 miles. I travel around 70-85mph the whole way and my average mpg is at 30
