2012 V6 Supercharger

I have a 2012 V6 2LS Camaro. I have a K&N intake (which had to be modified because the air sensor is different than 2010-11) and a magnaflow axle back system installed. I wanted to install a supercharger and wanted some advice/opinions (other than trade in for SS lol) I got my 2012 camaro brand new for 20k so with a supercharger id still have less money in than SS and equal horsepower. Its really just for the street. This is the kit i was looking at (http://www.superchargersonline.com/i...oducts_id=7422)

The IPF supercharger is for the 2011, 2011, and 2012. Look a little lower in the threads and its there. Also, I know that tracy (screenname SC2150) will work with you... I believe. Not too sure about that one.

IPF has kits for the 2010-11 LLT motor as well as the 2012 LFX motor. The car in our video is our 2012 demonstrator.

To view the car in action, you can view our latest video by following the link below:

We can do it installed turnkey, and the RX system includes digital boost guage & guage pod, the RX dual valve oil separating crankcase evacuation system (the only system for the FI 3.6 DI motor that provides proper crankcase evacuation during boost and non-boost operation. This is a known issue when FI this motor), and a dedicated separate drive pulley/belt/tensioner so the SC is not adding more stress to the current belt already running the AC/power steering/water pump/altenator and in the event the sc belt would fail, you can still drive with all systems still working except the SC.

Let us know if you need more info. Systems have been shipping already and we can slot you in for the complete install, tuned turn-key.

We also have the higher output high pressure DI fuel pump needed for power over 400 rwhp.

Hello, have you installed a system on a 2012 yet? Just out of curiosity, how do you know that your crankcase vent system is the only one that provides proper crankcase venting? Have you seen the other systems or are you just speculating? I am not being critical I am just curious. Also do you have any real world results from your supercharger system? 1/4 mile times, etc? Lastly, with a fixed boost supercharger System, what is the need for a boost gauge. Thank you for the info.

We are doing them on LFX motors in several platforms....and no one in the country has done more R&D on these motors and the systems period. As far as the crankcase evac that is a fact.....do some searches here to see. If you think my statement is incorrect then show me another that actually does and explain how. There are dozens of threads here that explain it in detail, and ask any of the other FI shops from East Coast Super charging to RDP or any of the many STS kit owners that have had to retrofit theirs.

We are without question the foremost experts on proper crankcase evacuation on street car applications and have developed more products, done more R&D on the LLT & LFX motors. But please post details on how any other system accomplishes what we do.......best way for you to learn is go into details.

You can do a 2012? Do you offer a warranty? Do you have a dyno or track times? Please answer.

Thanks

Thank you for the details but You didn't answer my other questions. Do you have any real world data from your "several platform" systems on the LFX engine? Any dyno data, videos of the car in action or 1/4 mile data? Just curious.

If you have a LFX V6 your car year is wrong , It's misleading!
