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.

To be honest I want to wait for the fuel system upgrade right now to see what this 6psi's really feels like. I'm most likely going to run DR's in the rear 100% of the time to try and hold the power down to the ground. They after I'm use to the new set up and comfy I'll see about the pumps. I may go the custom route. I'm going to get with Tracy when I drop the car off about the extra goodies. But he has already started ordering the parts for my kit. That the important part right now . I will update with any new development asap. And what we have come up with as a final build. So far the RX's "Top of the line Twin kit" is a 100% go.

Update: Well Last night I was cruising with the ACE5 members (our Atlanta C5 club) and got a 1-2nd grind. May ask Tracy to look around for a nice stage 2 clutch. I will take the car to the dealer also just to have things looked at just in case. Also looking at upgrading my tranny and diff oils to Royal Purple. May have been my fault because I wasn't able to reproduce the grind again . Will keep dropping the hammer alot more often to see what happens and break the tranny now if I have to before the boost. FYI: I'm a excellent M6 shifter. But we all make mistakes.


And on another note I have had the car a year the 23rd. I swapped in the Vmax TB and RX Catch can / Breather. And some Sea Foaming was do in the manifold. It wasn't to bad, I sprayed it good in there and had hardly no smoke come out the pipes. Indicating there wasn't alot of build up in there. I just sprayed the manifold as the car is still new. And I thought the Sea Foam in the gas tank and in the engine was alil extreme right now. So remember no matter how many miles or new the car is CATCH CAN is an amazing engine saver.

Yea I have read the same on here. And have friends that us it on they cars. I think this is my best bet right now. But still going to give the tranny a few hard launch's just in case.

So how's your Taxi handling the extra stress and boost? Or do you only boost her high at times. I maybe boost happy at first but will have to try and keep her under boost and control myself till I get some DR's lol.

C Me, this rocks! Congrats. I've got about 1/3 of the dough squirreled away right now. I have to mod on the sly unfortunately. Prolly go the SC route. (I love my LT/ARK combo too much though that TT option sounds pretty badd.)

I figure Tracy's SC will have a bit more power than IPF's and I'm guessing he'll be more able to customize it around my current mods. Plus I may add ported IM and insulator beforehand as well. Doubt i'll ever get heads ported or cams-just too much.

That said I am grateful that IPF is doing what they're doing. The more quality options, the better it is for the consumer.

Brick is holding up great! I really only do a couple of extra PSI... main thing though is the boost comes on a bit earlier and it holds it a bit longer.. Makes for a night and day difference though...
