Mine's a DD and I use my car all day long for work (outside sales). The unit is pretty transparent unless you drift up into higher RPM's where it is really felt.

No long term damage or wear is to be expected.

And the last question I need cleared up is the tuning...Ive talked to Tracy and he said the tune is $250. How did you all that didnt go to him tune yours? Is it just the tune and go, or is it a dyno as well? Thats probably the thing I am most confused about.

Those that go with the IPF get get a custom tune from IPF. Those that go with the RX kit get the tune most likely from Trifecta (especially if it is a 2011 and under car) otherwise the 2012 models can be tuned by other vendors as well.

A dyno tune is likely preferred, b/c then they can better monitor you car's fuel trims and air fuel ratios and make adjustments if necessary. Otherwise IPF or Trifecta can send you a tune which you will upload yourself.

So I have a choice of either getting the Trifecta tune and calling it a day...or going to a dyno and getting it done there? I was thinking the dyno would be more precise but I wasnt too clear on it.

Since you're buying an RX kit, you will have to go with Trifecta for the tune. You could essentially have them send you their supercharger tune (if they have a basic sc tune) and call it a day but since you want the car to last a long time, I'd have it put on the dyno. You just need to setup an appointment with Vince and your dyno shop so that he can tune it while on the dyno. Putting it on the dyno allows him to get a better dialed in tune than if you just ask for a "canned" one so to speak.

Just saw you already have a trifecta tune. Ok here's what you do.

1. You get the RX kit you're looking into buying.
2. Contact Vince and tell him you're going to need an FI tune for an RX Supercharger.
3. Ask him when he could do a dyno tune for you. Write down date and time.
4.. Contact local shops around you that have a dyno and see prices for date and time given by Vince.
5. Choose shop with cheapest price.
6. Go on date to shop and get it put on the dyno. Make a pull and send the data to Vince, he will then send you the revised tune and you load it into the car. Pull again.
7. Do this until Vince says the tune is good.
8. Done!

Wellllll its that time of the year again...and the Supercharger discussion has become very serious here lately. I work my ass of and finally get enough money saved up and then everything with RX happens....so IPF has caught my eye. Its probably going to cost me a few more hundred than the original plan but it will be well worth it in my opinion. Now to bring on the questions again, the tune is going to run me $400? and then install however much that can be. I was going to ask the forum if they knew of any shops that do good work at a reasonable price in the SC/GA/NC area?

Cant_C_Me has a twin turbo set up and lives in GA. He's said in the past that there are a lot of good shops in the area.

If you were to buy a new IPF S/C, the tune is included. Did you mean to infer you were thinking of getting a used system?

Pretty much the only problem I have ran into is finding somebody who will install. Other than that I guess I am good to go.
