Pulled the trigger and went ipf

Just wanted to say thanks for everyone support in making my decision on a supercharger. Everyone has been helpful and I made the purchase today and went with ipf specially since I live in Cali and we got a lot of cops popping hoods around here. Will keep everyone posted on my install and progress.

That's one of the main reasons I chose it. I like the sleeper look. Hopefully one day this kit will become carb legal. I don't have to smog til 2016 I think

Vader, you shouldn't have any problems with the install, especially with two people. PM me if you have any questions at all, as I did mine myself.

Loc-Tite every bolt that has to do with brackets for the S/C, blue, not red. The instructions (on a thumb drive only) indicate just a few bolts. Do them all.

Chase the threads in the intercooler if you have a proper sized tap. Mine had some extra metal in two holes.

If the power steering return line fitting feels loose after you put the stock o-ring on and insert the new fitting into the power steering pump, do not do anything else until you get a bigger o-ring on there and get it to fit snugly. Scrap the Torx head bolt (you'll see it) and get one slightly longer for more grab. Do not overtorque it; threads in the p/s pump are aluminum.

Silicone boost hoses are a pain to squeeze into place. Make sure you have two people when you get to that part. The hose that connects to the throttle body was tough to get on with mine. I smeared the inside of the hose with a bit of oil and it helped.

There are a couple of self-tapping screws used. Make sure to drill pilot holes first and have a powered nut driver to set those screws. Also have a Dremel with a cone-shaped grinder bit on hand. I had a few bolts that didn't want to go through some brackets until I opened up the holes in the brackets a touch first.

Make sure you find out which tune they want you to load onto the tuning device before you get into it. It would suck to have everything done and not know which one of the tunes to download (there are almost 20 different ones on their site) and not be able to get ahold of anyone.

Again, let me know if you have any questions.

John B.

Thanks for all the helpful information. I will definitely be asking questions. They are having me send my ecu to Jesse I told them I have just an exhaust system on my car. I may drive to so cal I heard they have a shop that is a ipf dealer .

You and your friend can do it. C'mon, I sell floor covering for a living (past 26 years, whippersnappers) and I got 'er done. Read the instructions until you understand every step and you'll be fine. Allow time. Don't get in a hurry.

Yeah definitely. I know for sure will be ok. As soon as I get some pics of my install I will send them over as well as getting a dyno.
