time to watch the video again
Did the SC change the exhaust note of the car? Sounds deeper and more muffled, sounds perfect

Yes, blow off valve is a saftey net so you dont wrap the TB blade around the acuator rod on abrupt decel.

Your single valve can can esily be converted to a dual valve for the front mont SC but you will need to do a few mods (I can talk to your tech in detail on what to do....I am not sharing this with the arrogant haters that have not solved the crankcase evac solution when FI'ing the LLT & LFX).

Ported IM is not a must but all helps.

The system comes with intercooler as well.

The RX Super Chiller is not needed but is a great option.

Ice-olator is standard also.

Since Tracy is swamped with work. Smoke1LT said I can drive it, So if he wants I can get a video of "The Smoke Show" lol when I head down! And those are some beefy tires back there. What size are those? And since your M6 just drove 300 miles on the SC, I ain't to worried about the trans as regular driving! We will have to see about track use lol.

Nice I can't wait to see the dyno numbers and how it compares to the rx tt setup.

He should have some high numbers from that SC kit! Remember Smoke also has the super chiller that will allow him to run more boost than the plain SC kit. But I won't be surprised if the SC kit makes the same or alil more than my TT set up since I don't have the chiller or meth.

By the way....are their any pics/videos/results from the rally this weekend? I thought the cars were going to be doing more 1/4 mile runs....I probably missunderstood!

Hey gang!

First off, great to get down to Orlando and meet Tracy in person. We've talked multiple times via email and PM and yesterday was the icing on the cake.

Let me also start off with saying that both the SC and TT cars that these guys are working so feverishly on look and perform incredible! We got to take the TT out for a spin and there is nothing like riding in that V6 car with those twins installed. We talked a little about what other supporting mods might coexist with doing a TT build, but in all, I really love the work and engineering that has been done to make this a reality.

The Supercharged version is just as classy. I really had to take a second look at it to see how it was plumbed and built. Just excellent work and thought processes to complete the job here as well.

We'll be helping to promote these out on the West Coast once I get back home in the next couple weeks so for those of you on the fence or wondering just what to do to get your V6 to the next level, this is definitely it.

Not just the next level, but several levels higher.

I love seeing the Isolator, the Billet Pullies, and SC/TT Catch cans in person and how they work in unison for both builds.

I shot a couple pics and hopefully some of you can see just what I'm talking about.

Enjoy and we look forward to seeing more of these out there on the streets!

Ivan

Wow so that's how you got the wider tires on the RS wheels. I was wondering how that was possible nice work! I am going to use my 18" stock wheel for track use with some Nitto's at the back. Was going to get the SS Brembo's but you can't run 18" wheels with them. So going to just get better rotor's and pads also look into upgrading the lines. But I will get you some of everything when I head down. Not going to burn them that much. I would feel guilty and bad inside !

I had my mind made up that when I got the money saved up I was going to get the Rx upgraded TT system but now since the supercharger is a lil cheaper idk what I'm going to get. Which one will be capable of more hp??? Which set up will be better for the street and track??

The turbo should be able to give you more RWHP and you should have more area under the curve since the turbo should be making max boost a lot sooner than the centrifugal supercharger. Boost comes on slower and more steady in a centrifugal supercharger... the boost builds up as the RPMs climb, basically making max boost at the redline.... Also remember a centrifugal supercharger has a lot more parasitic drag than a turbocharger... basically it take more HP to spin the SC then it does the turbo, since the turbo is running off exhaust gases..

As for the street and track... that's going to really depend on you...the turbo will come on a lot faster and feel more harsh, where the power from the centrifugal supercharger will probably come on a lot smoother...

Having owned by centrifugal supercharger and a twin turbo car, I would definitely say go with the twin turbo if you can swing it... but that is just me... either way it's going to be a blast!!!

Well everything you are considering is based on what you want from your car at the end. In my option the SC kit is the best bet if you are new to the FI game and want something that requires less maintain and less monitoring. But at the end of the day the TT kit will end with the most power. As you can up the boost alot more than the SC. The RX TT kit I have is rated at 600rwhp. But we know the Trans and pumps won't handle that much. Even with the new pumps Tracy is building the Trans may not handle it. I doubt the M6 could don't know about the A6. I would say look at Gretchen but he has alot of work done on his A6.

Thx Can't C Me and scrming for the info. It sounds like the TT setup is for me I want the boost to come on fast and throw me back in my seat. I have never owned a fi car before but I have drivin turbo and supercharged cars before. For example a evo x and a gt500. And as far as the extra $ for the TT system well I have waited 2yrs for fi so I think I can wait a few more months to save up. :( I should have enough $ by the end of 2012. Can't wait btw I just realized today is 2yr exactly since I got my camaro.
