Ok so that is behind us now. Phewwww. Now back to the original question that I posted. Does RX have a system currently available for the LFX - one that is proven with dyno results and real world data? That's all I wanted to know. Now you make it sound like that if I decide to go the RX route, I will be the first.

I don't know. I know they are selling them, but I don't know if they have done one on the Camaro. They may have some results posted on other forums related to cars that also have the LFX engine. I'm guessing the results will be very similar to what SmokeLT1 is getting on the LLT though. After all, why wouldn't it be?

I agree, whatever results that are had from an LLT should be expected...or pretty close anyways...for an LFX.

That said, we are still waiting to see final dyno numbers and 1/4 mile times for the RX supercharger project.

Maybe I'll be the first to dyno the RX supercharger!

Since there seems to be a rash of "brand new" members on the few forums that want to make this a battle between the 2 companies. If your already leany toward the other one then by all means buy theirs. To date we have stayed out of the fights as much as possible but there are so many areas these systems differ (other than both use the same Vortech V3 head unit and power will be the same with either) that if you truely want to compare, then ask the details between the two systems....if it is power, either should give the same power....we only claim to have a design that allows the following:

The RX system does not use the current serpentine belt that already runs the AC, power steering, altenator, water pump. The RX system uses a dedicated separate drive pulley, belt, and tensioner so no addes stress to the OEM belt. This also allows the driver to still drive their car IF the SC belt would fail....you wont be stuck on the side of the road.



The RX system comes with the ONLY oil separating crankcase evacuation system that provides proper evac under both boost and non boost operation while trapping the oil from entering the intake air charge and causing the detonation, etc. you dont want when boosted. Any doubt on how the RX evac system works as PT Killa or any of the others that have retrofit it to their V6 FI build.

With the RX system you have the choice to add the RX Super Chiller system and the liquid to air IC if you choose.

The RX System comes standard with digital boost guage, wideband A/F guage and choice of consol pod or pillar pod....no extra charge.


The RX system offers the uprgaded high pressure direct injection pump for the LLT (we dont have an option for the LFX yet...but in the works).....have not seen anyone else offer this solution (but we are sharing it with RDP/Ohio Speed and HPE and others developing FI systems for the V6 crowd....yes, I help others for the greater good of the family when they are decent and appreaciative and not cold hearted "take no prisoner" marketing attitude that seems the standard for some).

We also have the option of the VMax ice-olator and ported TB if desired (and anyone can order these no matter what system they choose).

The other companies system I expect to work well as the first one seems to clearly do so the decission on who's to buy should be made on the actual systems and the customer service provided after the sale and not because of a public slam fest.

The drivetrain warranty is available from several aftermarket companies (no, GM is NOT offering a warranty on ANY system).

We are not offering financing...the companies weinterviewed and the one we signed up with were 24-28% interest and the hoops they want the applicants tojump through (and they also want the vendor to subsidize it) are unreasonable and we can't see any justification for those rates (yes, they showed us how to advertize it as "interset free" or "low interest" but it was allmarket smoke and mirrors and we dont play those games.

As for rain....no track IHRA or NHRA will allow you to run when they call a rain out. We do not have our own chassis dyno atthis facility and are at the mercy of the few available in our area....and we had a slot scheduled for yesterday and when we arrived they had decided to close early....so were at their mercy.

We CAN make videos of burnouts (we did a short one) or doing donuts with customer cars...but is that what you all want to see?

Our goal at RX is not to battle a competitor...if your leaning toward them by all means, buy theirs. What we do offer is quality and service second to none (just ask any of our customers at any level) and that we have made a huge investment of time and $ in developing products for the modern muscle market with a ton of investment into bringing the V6 crowd mods the mainstream brands did not in the beginning, and I think most are pretty happy some have done this. We also continue to make a huge investment into even more products (cylinder heads are getting closer) but unlike many, we dont come and hype something before it is proven and perfected and released.

So, it appears the ones that seem to appear in the threads with just a few posts and recently joined may actually be sincere.....it usually turns out to be just the opposite. The IP address on several in the past turned out to be the same one under several user names or from the same network or PC that ended up originating at another vendor, etc.

So excuse me if I am leary of some of these that appear to be looking more to stir things up than to really be sincere.

Hope I covered things enough here without being baited into another slam fest as no one wins in the end.

We have been supercharging since the early 70's and turbo charging since the late 70's and have done applications most would not touch. Since we do much of our machining and fabrication in-house changes and improvements are done quickly and it gives us the flexablity to customize as needed.

We are also right in the middle of moving into our new facility (16,000 sq ft with us occupying 8,000 to begin with) and this is no easy feat while still meeting orders and completing builds, but it will allow us to again add our own chassis dyno as well as add 3-4 new assembly lines allowing our production abilities to increase several fold.

So, I thank those that are supporting us.....I ask those that want more data to stay tuned, but I stand behind everything we do and there are enough customers out there with our bulds to ask personally if they reccomend us or not. And those looking to cause trouble, your time can be used far better by attacking the scammers and not someone that does as much as we do for the community as a whole. If you are truely sincere Iwill get you any info I am able to.

Tracy is the man!
besides all this RX is the one that got out v6 off the ground and has been working hard with us from the start! (along with Mace and their accomplishments!) I'm trying to save to go FI and just because of all the hard work designing and testing all of these products, along with the other many RX products I have in my car, they are my first choice 100%!

Thanks for your post Tracy. I will be honest that what I am waiting for is the kinks to be worked out of the system. I've invested a lot of time and money into my car, and I am heavily invested into a few major shows this summer, with hotel costs and registration fees paid up front. I can't afford to be without my car if something comes up or is not working right. I've got the Hot Rod Power Tour, F-body Gathering and CamaroFest 5 to attend and will be traveling for Atlanta to Detroit to Champaign, IL, to Oklahoma, to Dallas, New Orleans and back to Atlanta, then to Indy for the Fest. I want a product that is ready to go with no "high maintenance" and no necessary added build up of my stock 2LT. If someone can say the product works, it won't strand you on the side of the road 1000's of miles away and you don't have to spend thousands more besides the purchase and install, then I'm ready........and believe me, it will be seen by thousands..........

To answer your question, to my knowledge RX also makes a ported intake manifold. 325.00 plus a refundable 300.00 core charge. If you want to make your IM pretty talk to Tracy and he'll hand polish it for a nominal fee. They also have a Super Chiller that dramatically lowers operating temps on FI cars thus increasing HP.

Yep they do because I have it installed on my build when Tracy had it. I have RX ported and matched everything except for the heads.

Its really just for the street. This is the kit i was looking at (http://www.superchargersonline.com/i...oducts_id=7422)
You are correct, this is the only kit made for a 2012, and the only kit that has posted dyno and 1/4 mile results.

Holy cow.....it is really unfortunate that great vendors and companies that truly design, develop and deliver top quality products have to go through all this.

Thanks Tracy for your continued support and excellent customer support/focus!

I've just ordered a IPF SC for mine Did a lot of investigation on the various ones available, They all had advantages or disadvantages. I truly believe they would all work really well on our LLT's. Made my choice for 3 reasons install can be done right here in my home town, a warranty is readily available, and as with RX IPF is a highly regarded company in my books.

Let you no the results after the install.
