not sure, but it will probably hurt performance. by how much, it depends on what type of cats you go with. as far as location goes, not sure either, somewhere after the turbos since the air will be hotter, it can be mounted more towards the rear of the car.

You can pass emissions here in GA if you know what your doing and have the right tools and emission shop. Or you can find someone that lives outside the metro area that is willing to let you use their address.

I passed emissions with no cats and a little tweaking of the readiness testing cycle lol. I've helped others pass here on the forum with success. The key is to have access to tuning software to tweak the test.

Lewis Center, OH – July 22, 2013 – IPS Motorsports introduces its new twin-turbo kit for fifth generation Camaro V6 LFX engines. This all-American made turbo kit offers performance-minded enthusiasts 575 crank horsepower with 460 horsepower at the wheels.

How well does a stock drivetrain handle this extra power? Sounds great, but I won't be too happy if I blow my transmission or rip out me rear end within a couple years...

The Ips kit has had my attention for months now. I wanted to ask some of the members on here about having a more aggressive tune (I think it is called the GPI tune, idk if it is provided by IPS?) vs having the base tune. Is the base tune aggressive enough? I want my car to be a daily driver but I would also want a more aggressive tune. Also I was thinking before I make my decision should I get a Vmax throttlebody before the kit? I was thinking of getting Bo Whites TB but he doesn't do v6 lfx TBs at the moment and I've been waiting for any word on it but no luck. What kind of maintenance would I be doing on my car after the install?

I would say that IPS has a strong tune. They spent a lot of time tuning my car.

I already had a Vmax TB on my car. Bo white does V8's, I haven't heard of him doing V6's. As for maintenance, that's up to you, I like to change my oil considering the miles I put on it.

Jack fav said he is working on it. But should I get a vmax tb before the turbo? Does the kit have a boost controller?

the tb wouldn't hurt. turbo= more air flow and the tb helps improve air flow. I have a boost controller on mine. I believe you can option a boost controller.

Usually parts are either underrated or underpowered and there is some room to handle more power. A lot of it depends on the way you drive. We had customers brake axles in stock v8 camaros before. So i'd say 85% depends on the way this extra power will be used.

I am confused by what you mean a more aggressive tune. Yes our standard aka CAN tune has way more safety built in rather than a tune we would do on a dyno for a local customer. Custom tunes are always better in terms of power.

How do the turbos mount? Bolt-on or cut and weld?

Our rear diff is definitely not from the SS, and I recall reading somewhere that the 2LS auto is designed to only handle 330 fp of torque. This might be something to confirm before someone ends up blowing a transmission never intended to handle 400 pounds of torque.

Okay, found the torque numbers...

That's with a 5000 lb vehicle. I took mine higher than that, with a loose converter (more heat) for quite a while. It wasn't until I was over 900 ft-lbs at the crank it gave up, and that was locking the converter on many dyno pulls. A tranny cooler would be a good safety feature though.

I would have thought more people would have bought this kit by now. It's been out for over a year. I wonder why no one else has went this route? It seems to be solid and seems to make alot of power down low which I would think would be a blast on the street! I'm really wanting to buy this kit just don't want to regret it afterwards.

Another problem is the 93 tune.. I only have one gas station anywhere close that sells 93 and it's $1.20/gallon more than 91octane. The price I could prob live with but to only have one gas station to use.. idk how that would work. They say they need the car in house to do a 91 tune.. I guess I could wait for Matt from fsp to go to Texas but that would prob be 500 on top of the 600 IPS wants to tune it.

Also I wonder what kind of power this kit would make on the same dyno the same day with just the 7-9psi from wastegates only (no boost controller) and a 91 tune? Compared to the 460hp 440torque from the 12 psi and 93 tune.. maybe 400hp and 380tq? Idk what do you guys tthink?

I'd buy this kit in a heart beat except I need a way to pass smog here in Cali if I keep this car.

With the IPD S/C kit I can remove it easily when need and reinstall in the same weekend. Can't do this with the TT kit. Even though it makes more RWHP to the ground.

Issue is once you go beyond 500+RWHP on the LFX engine and drivetrain things seems to start breaking....
