No, it may actually cover the whole powertrain... I know Roush does (or used to) this with it's Mustang kits.... you do however have to have it installed at an AUTHORIZED shop...

I am VERY interested in it, but I wait for a couple of months to read some reviews and experiences.

Basically I am a Turbo guy, but since I've been waiting for a smart turbo kit for two years now, I just got tired. I'd never install a turbocharger at the bottom of my Camaro, since I use it all year (also in winter) here in snowy Austria. The turbo would be unprotected against dirt, salt (from de-icing the streets in winter) and mechanical impacts, I am pretty sure I'd brake it within half a year. Also I only read about problems with increased boosts, so all the currently offered turbo kits don't make sense to me, even though I'd prefer a turbo over a supercharger. The turbo produces a lot more torque which I personally like, but which is also stressing the power train and clutch. Bonus of the supercharger is a quicker spool since it is powered by belt and not by exhausts. I am waiting for the European pricing of the IPF kit and will probably get one then, maybe next spring.
I can tell you a centrifugal supercharger is NOT going to "spool" faster than a properly sized turbo. A centrifugal supercharger basically makes max boost at max RPM. In other words the boost comes on a lot slower... where as a turbo makes max boost a lot sooner.

With a centrifugal, i think the Camaro's stock rear end gearing will make it feel a bit more sluggish... for a centri i would run like a 3.73 in a manual and possible a 4.10 in an automatic...

Having owned both now, there is no way I would go back to a centri...

100% true. But then you run into a problem with raising the gears is that you won't stay under boost for as long since the gears are revving through faster and lose top end. The only way to build boost earlier in the rpm band is to run the smallest supercharger pulley you can find and bleed off the extra boost with a wastegate-like device or pressure relief valve attached to the charge plumbing but parasitic loss will be pretty big.

Well, actually I always thought that the big advantage of the supercharger is that it is driven by belt, so it produces boost from the beginning. All my turbo cars produced the boost later on (from about 3000RPM onwards), since they are driven by exhaust and the lower the RPMs, the less exhaust is there to spool the turbo. But since I am not that aware with superchargers, I might be wrong according to that centrifugal one.

You are thinking of a roots or screw type of supercharger (positive displacement). Check here:

Wouldn't the properties of coming in slower be much better for our chassis ? The turbo setups are traction limited, seems their issue is the power comes on to quick to be effective. This is the very offering I was hoping for, i think it will excell in drivability and will return better numbers in the 1/4.

The big question is, do we spend 6k on this or spend 12k and buy a 68 or 69 camaro with a decent chassis.

Don't compromise on power, fix the traction issues instead!!! LOL!

Dynos are just the first step... I would need to have to see a lot more before I got to excited... Need to get the car on the street and get some load on it and see how it reacts... need to do some serious flogging on it to see if can hold together... A few dyno pulls is just the start... I know everyone gets super excited when these build threads start... and it's hard not too.. but how many have really come to fruition... just saying...

Yeah.. I changed my mind and deleted the post. Guess you were quicker than my internal reasoning. I started thinking about it and you are dead on. It doesn't mean much if its not street able and lpe never really posted what they found to be the road block ( or weak link ). Could be they did not want to anger GM by posting what they found to be the weak link or it could have been internal politics at lpe.

I thought there was a tuning issue with lpe or might have been procharger with the tuning issue.
