I just contacted Xtreme DI on the possibility of having them produce a high flowing HPFP for the 3.6L LFX. Hopefully, I can get them on board; would enable boosted guys to run ethanol as a fuel source and allow guys the ability to turn up the boost without having to use supplemental fuel such as methanol.

Can you post up some pictures of the location of your release handle for the chute? I’m also curious if you do or plan to roll with the chute on all the time or only put it on for track days? Any ideas for like a little “plug” type deal for the hole in the plate when not running the chute to make it less noticeable when not running it?

Just ordered a 3.5" aluminum 1pc driveshaft from dss. Quoted 4-5weeks to be made. Keeping my fingers crossed I can get it out for the LFX Camaro record attempt on the 18th of November at Capital Dragway.

When I get a chance to get back to the shop I will get some pictures of how we mounted the release handle. She is not daily driven anymore; however, when she is driven on the street I will most likely keep the chute on.

I would definitely appreciate it. Seems like there aren’t many options to mount the release handle without either mounting a roll bar or replacing the emergency brake handle with the chute release handle. So I’m curious to see what others have come up with.
