He sold me a centri kit, it was not a turnkey kit as advertised (none of them were-just ask anybody who bought one) we agreed that I could return it, he then claimed it was too damaged particularly the head unit even tho he said it all looked great upon receiving it then turned around and sold my kit to someone else. His attorney made a few low ball offers, I agreed to 40000.00 and haven't heard from anyone since except for Tracy who told me he'd get me my money and tried to tell me my evac system for my IPF kit is all wrong. He trashes them any chance he gets.

I've owned both systems, I saw what both kits looked like when shipped. One was professionally packaged with clear installation instructions, the other was not. One worked, the other did not.

Plenty of threads, plenty of info on this guy if ppl want to do due diligence. A lot of ppl don't and suffer the consequences. I was one of them.

Well it certainly isn't optimal. Lol. Sadly, I'm just one of many.


On topic, I'm not sure of the visual merits of a roots type blower on a V6. Often times, isn't the goal of modding a v6 to have a sleeper that will beat up on a V8? Having a COPO hood on a V6 or a blower sticking out of the hood to me seems a little goofy and I'm a V6 fan.

Guess it's just in the eyes of the beholder. Some people like the idea if a sleeper v6 and leave the car look low key which is perfect for kits like ipf and ips. Me personally I'm just after function more than anything. If there was a roots system that could give me gobs if low end torque and 450 rwhp then I most certainly wouldn't mind running a copo hood. But if it only were to give me 330 rwhp it wouldn't be worth it running that hood. I'd have to have a good reason to cut up my hood, or buy a new one AND to trust a RX product that others haven't had wild success with yet.

I would consider the top mount, but now waiting for the 6th gen. So I don't really see it in my future, but one can should never say never. Other big obstacle was the tune, but that might have been taken care of with this new unlocking from Tampa Tuning. The only reason the COPO hood is mentioned is this one fits and clears for sure. Doesn't mean it is necessarily the only one on the market to use. I for one would not cut up my stock hood, but that is me.

The car in the video is mine. I've had the top mount for awhile now without any issues.

I haven't had a chance to take it out yet. I've been busy with work and school.

Well like I said if the top mount makes enough power (more than ipf) and Tracey's customer service has done a 180 then I might consider it

There were some that had issues with their performance. My issue came back to a long wait time for delivery after ordering, poor paint quality on the color match and not receiving it until I threatened legal action.
