Awesome! I'm excited you're an M6 guy like me. There are a lot of autos getting boosted, but not many manuals. Can't wait to see your numbers!

Yeah not to many of us M6 running boost out there. We will see what I can put down soon.


Tracy is completing two cars now and should have room for me come Sunday. But won't be able to drive the car down till the 26-27th.

Welcome to the club. The more of that does it, makes more demand for new parts.

Great News!! I would go with Turbo as well. You get better low end torque.. Seems like the centrifugal superchargers don't make any power below 4k rpm. So below 4k your car will still feel like a V6.


Also, how is your AY6 holding up to 1st to 2nd shifts? Mine not so good.. Lots of grind.

I can't speak for the OP, but my AY6 doesn't grind when I slow the shift down slightly (half second slower give or take). Simply put, super fast 1-2 shifts exceed the mechanical design and abilities of the AY6. GM should have went with a different tranny. I still love my car though, just have to live with slightly slower 1-2 shifts. I guess I'll have to make up for the delayed shift with a SC or twin turbos!

I have had my car since Dec. of last year and only actually had that happen once. After I installed my Barton shifter hasn't happened again. But my car also only has 4800 miles now. I'll take the last in warranty, We only live once you know!!!! But Tracy does offer a 12 month one regardless.

Can't wait for more to join me soon. I have picked the Twin Turbo set up with all the bells and whistles. My payment was sent off and Tracy is tracking it. He told me that my parts will be ordered now. I am also maybe looking at DR's as my stock tires lol.

I actually saved some money because I already had the Trifecta tune, Vmax TB, RX Catch can and breather. I am taking the car to get dyno'd next week before I install my JBA shorties and tune. Then dyno'd again right before Tracy puts her under the knife with all my mod's bolted on. I will keep everyone updated. And maybe Tracy will chime in here and there.

Thanks everyone, I'm already imaging the drive home after she's done lol. After seeing all the drama and missing info from the other vendors Tracy's RX kit was a no brainer. No matter if the results are good or disappointing Tracy will be honest and put it out there. I like that about him and all his products are top notch. It's always the lil guys that get the job done right and come up with the good products. The new LLT fuel system is a prime example of this. The big boys couldn't even get this done or even waste some time to resolve this for us. I'm like GretchenGotGrowl now, all RX products only if available.

EDIT: Oh and trust me, I will be posting ALOT of videos when I get her back. It will start when I drop her off with Tracy taking delivery. I'm getting a GoPro also for the car.

Dude, you freaking suck!!!!!!!!! Congradulations! You did it just in time when the fuel issue has finally been solved. So for the fuel are you waiting and opting for the brodix heads with 2 pumps or doing it the custom fitted way?

Just spoke to Tracy again and I offically requested my selection. I'm going with the RX Top Of The Line kit (like Gretchen) Twin Turbo kit.
