Anyone have experience with Paxton 1200SL kit on LS3?

My Novi 1200SL kit is ordered and hope to be installing soon. Has anyone had any experience with these systems? Went back and forth multiple times between this and the slp tvs2300. Obviously decided on Paxton. Any input?

Your going to Love it, it is the Same as the Vortech V3 part for part with the exception of the head unit.

On an L99 We made 537 RWHP With Headers and JRE Vortech upgrade kit which also fits the Paxton system.

We also used the Vortech version on Your SEMA Build and made 700 RWHP with JRE rough Idle cam, Headers and supporting fueling upgrades.

I have these down to a science, Check it out. http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...ghlight=PAXTON

Thanks Ted! That's very reassuring. I'm preparing my ls3 for some nice gains, hopefully. She will be getting bbk long tubes w high flow cats, zl1 fuel pump w adm module, and zr1 slp clutch kit. Already have the borla cat back on her now.

The LS3 will make about 40 More RWHP with the same set up as the L99 above.

Paxton is running a deal right now on the 1200, $1500.00 rebate. And from what I read there isn't much of a difference between the two and I'm really not too concerned because I'm not planning on maxing out the 1200.

I think for what I'm looking for, it's the best deal.

I can certainly help you with this as I am a Paxton Dealer.

Your not going to have the bottom end power like you would have with the tvs2300 but it will sing after 3500-4000rpm.

They are telling me it starts to build power between 2000 & 2500rpm. I would be interested to see a dyno for a stock car to compare the curve.

It does start to build power at that rpm, its about 2lbs of boost by then. Compared to a 2300 though no comparison. I don't have a print out of the dyno sheet but I've seen an overlay of my car and another SS with a tvs2300 at the same boost level.

please stop it..

if you enjoy going fast, buy the centri. If you are one of those guys that enjoys blowing tires off and being slow, buy the 2300.

You will like this setup. I run a novi 1500 with a tsp cam. Drives like an NA car down low but with the right gears and proper shifting these setups are killers. I have a manual car with 4.11 gears, I can get into high boost very fast with the right gear. It's a monster. The mid range hit is awesome.

I have the Novi 1500 and it is powerful but he ask for some with experience and I replied. Proper gearing and shifting I will agree with. I've drove Turbo cars and positive displacement supercharged cars before I bought this car. Everything I stated is true so why would I stop it? He asked. For the most part by what I've seen here the centri guys and 2300 guys boost for boost and running roughly the same at the track. I will say the centri is easier on parts because of how it comes in.

Remember, I'm talking about bottom end power(below 3500 rpm). It does drive like an N/A car for sure with the centri.

The mid range throw you in your seat is what I'm looking for. I don't need boost to smoke the tires off the line if I want. By the sounds of it I think I will be happy with the novi. Thanks man.

You bring up another point that helped in my decision. The fact that it is a little easier on the drivetrain not hammering the car with all that boost down low. I'm not looking to build a race car, just a fun street car. Thanks for the reply.

Looking at some of the dyno graphs I've seen I will have at least an additional 60 hp or so over stock in the low 2000 range and it only goes up quick from there. Not too bad.

I just want to have fun but I also want to have a nice setup. It's not like the car is a dog down low to begin with. I'm starting to think that maybe all that 2300 boost right off the line would be a waste anyway. I will be driving this around town and don't need all that boost every time I leave a light.

All opinions aside you will like the kit. This is an overlay of my old G8 GXP with intake and LTs(same drivetrain basicly as my SS) to my SS:
