That's kind of why I want to hold off a little longer on the install. As I said, my application is road racing, so I have a lot of other work I want to do first. But I can't help but thing that at some point, having 400 RWHP is going to be a hell of an asset down the back straight.

You have an LFX V6 engine...not the LLT which is in the 2010s and 2011s. So you have more options. Yes the IPS TT seems to be a good option for the LFX, although more expensive than the IPF SC...its also more powerful (make the car a beast!). More power is good, but probably means you'd need to spend more money on support mods.

I went with the RX Supercharger - and I love it. If I had to do it again, I would get it new instead of used. I definitely recommend having a mechanic do the installation.

Except for the bad winter months, my car is a daily driver with just over 50K miles. Still no problems and I really don't expect any. I'm pretty good about routine maintenance.

Once the new tunes are out, I'd like to see what That will do to this little 6 Pack!

I'm not expecting it to be pain free. I'm just hoping it won't be a never ending hassle that makes me regret the car. What Magnum was going through with the plugs and tunes would be about my limit. Hopefully that was something to do with his other mods.

That fuel economy is similar is good. Has anybody written off any transmissions or motors yet with the IPF kit? I know vader wrote off a driveshaft, but that's not to bad. Wouldn't want to be eating tranny's though.
I picked my Ipf supercharger due to reliability and the fact that it looks stock. My driveshaft issue was actually something that was going on before I got the kit.there was vibration in my drivetrain before I put it on. Other than that after I got the supercharger tune where I wanted it car ran great. I've done a few drives down to so Cali (bout 400 miles one way). If you have a manual I would recommend getting the ideal g master cylinder for shifting. Makes the car shift a ton smoother.
