Can't wait for my s/c.

So I made the glorious mistake of ordering my supercharger a few weeks before Christmas. I wasn't the only one lol and now the shipping has taken longer than expected and needless to say the anticipation is killing me lol. Can't wait to join the ipf gang on here.

Yes, I will probably be hounding you all with questions the day of installation lol, I checked out your build thread for pics of the install, very nice ride, sounded awesome in the video, how is it holding up?

I am here for pointers too, I have done a lot of research and R/D. Magnum is especially good at the tuning info too.

Thanks But no problem, I had a bunch of advice given by fellow IPF'ers to help along the way.

Its a beast and running flawless. Improving the Catch can system as we speak.

Cool and thanks, after this I'm upgrading the brake system, nothing too flashy just a modest upgrade to slotted/drilled rotors, new pads. After that some suspension work will most definitely be in order. I'm not much of a track guy, I've just wanted a Camaro since I played with Hot Wheels in the dirt as a kid. I've had the car for almost two years and I just can't seem to stop modifying this and wanting to tweak that. What catch can system are you improving to? Just improving upon the one you have or replacing the system entirely?

That will be a great combo for your brakes. As for suspension, I would look at LSR. I have their Sways, Trailing arms, and toe links and makes a huge difference. As for the catch can, i bought the E2 elite can with dual ports. and am about to buy a 1LE separator for the clean side to the supercharger inlet.

dumb question. and a little off topic, I'm familiar with sways, but what're the benefits of trailing arms and toe links?

Basically stabilizing the rear wheels when they're under load (accelerating/turning). Keeps them from flexing out of optimal alignment.

I truly hope your wait is not as long as mine. I ordered my IPF s/c back in September. I was told they where having mfg issues and it would be a few weeks. That was in November. At the first of the year they told me they had to change suppliers for the pulleys and brackets and that I'd have my complete kit the second week of January. My anticipation has turned into frustration. I'm just glad this is not something I HAVE to do, just something I WANT to do. In any event, soon we will both happy and proud members.

I'm right there with you, they told me that issue about the brackets is what is holding up my order. I'm just as frustrated but if it means quality work over rushing of shipment then I can wait I have my dreams of tire smoking and the stories of others on here with the IPF to live vicariously through until then. haha
