My LFX is getting boosted

So its official, 'Jaws' just got picked up and is on his way down to Florida to visit Tracy at RX. They're installing the single-mount turbo on my 2012 LFX. I'm extremely excited!

I wasn't planning on boosting the car this year but Tracy gave me a great deal. More importantly, the fiance gave me the OK.

I'll use this thread for Tracy to post pics and keep us updated on the build. Grab your

Maybe our cars can be trailer buddies on the way home to Chicago. My car is there right now for a redesign of my current turbo system with a BorgWarner EFR turbo.

Tracy is the best guy to work with, and his shop is second to none. You won't be disappointed.

Awesome to here. I'm actually flying down to pick up the car, then driving it back. Can't wait for that road trip! 1,200 miles with the windows down and music up.

I can definitely attest to Pete's workmanship, he's a master at what he does!

The Camaro looks so warm and toasty down there in Florida. I'm jealous.

I don't want to jack Butter's thread too much, tell me to stop and I will.

I orginally got a STS Turbo kit in late 2010. I recently brought it to Tracy to redesign it, the BorgWarner EFR turbo will be rear mount. I'm not sure how Butter's Turbo will be mounted, or any details of his turbo setup, other than it is a single.

Here is a pic of my gauge pod in the center speaker spot:

Awesome to see, welcome back Tracy! Do you think you'll run into any issues with heat displacement?
