Baylor had to have one overnighted from KY, and we still have them on backorder as they cant meet demand.
Yup, there is a shortage out there, I called around while I was in Florida and there weren't any dealerships within a couple hundred miles that had them.

Vince tuned my cams and it looks like I'm at around 9.5 psi of boost now, rather than 8 from the OD pulley.

Exactly what I was going to say.

What numbers is the IPF system putting out?

I'm 1 of the 2 that MAF blew. And this was while running 11-13psi's when Tracy and myself took her out for the first drive. I even posted the video of us test driving and showing 11-13psi's on the runs. After replacing the MAF that night I drove 800 miles home with no issues. I lowered the boost to 3psi's for the first month to get the tune right. Now running 6psi's as a norm and running into the issues sometimes not all the times. And I don't mind tweaking and playing with my car. I want all the power I can get and I know this means issues will come up. A few weeks ago I was able to keep up with a GT-R and a ZL1 racing each other. This is why I choose RX as I can use every bolt on I have to maximize my HP. I don't see no one other than STS (waiting on HPS and RPD) that has this kind of potential as of yet. GOTTA PAY TO PLAY, and I'm all for it!! The RX kit isn't for everyone just as the IPF kit isn't also.

Thank you for the response tracy! That wasn't a bashing comment by any means. It was just a question I had before I knew baylor was pulling 9 psi on the supercharger! That's a huge difference! I did notice the dyno graph of frequents (I think thats his name) car. Seemed to me like there was a difference I just couldn't put my finger on but now that you mention it, it was the smoothness of the graph. Every dyno I've seen is choppy. Anyway, I hope you get everything dialed in perfectly because its going to be a monster once its done! i want one so bad but the twins are very enticing as well!

Of you look at the dyno sheets for the LLT in the bolt on section (Sticky thread). They do show alot of choppy waves across the runs. A few seem real smooth ur 99% are not smooth with and without FI.

I believe the graph Vince posted of camaro-21's run was smooth...

Actually I'm seeing just over 10 psi of boost with his latest tune. He said he messed with the cams to get the more boost.

Although tbh I figured we'd see more than ~370 rwhp. Not that I care because I don't want a ton of power since this is my daily. Leave it to those twin turbo freaks for that lol

How is he threatening you at all? I dont see it?

Tracys taken a lot from people because there have been little issues with his systems but what everyone fails to comprehend is how much the situations differ. Ipf runs very little boost on their kits and the kits Tracy has made that have the same amount of.boost as ipf are running perfectly. It's the kits that push the limits that start to have problems but as you start to push more and more power, problems will arise. its common sense.

Also, I understand you don't condone going fast in public but he also never stated how the race went down. It could have been a private area, we don't know. Plus to be honest, thays probably gotten the most enthuastic of all the comments. Saying you might be able to hang with zl1s and gtrs is amazing to me. I understand it might not happen all the time but the sheer fact its possible with "our little six" boggles my mind. So yea, numbers are important but to me, i love hearing comparisons in relation to other cars

I agree with Gretchen below. this is Baylor's thread and lets leave his thread for posting about his progress with his build. I've said my peace about this and that's that. I'm excited that there is so much to follow in the FI section now.

Tracy is an awesome guy and he makes awesome products. Anyone who says otherwise simply doesn't know the man. Although if you click on his profile and read his posts you won't even have to meet him to realize this.

As far as kits go, yes making a decision on what kit to purchase requires asking questions, no matter how painful the answer is.
I didn't do this on a public road, Like I have posted in my video's or race post before. I have a stretch of road at my job that's being constructed and those that know go on it to settle scores. And I just happen to be the third leg in this one. It's a road my company paid to construct/improve! And yes you have to pay to play. If you can't handle the heat stay out the kitchen. However you want to put it, but don't sit here and tell me that NO has street raced before. Even the ones that have made the comments like you did.

Thanks, to those posting their FI project info keeping us informed,look forward to reading the posts,pics and even better video

Hey, can we not turn Baylor's thread into a B!+ch fest??? That's happened too many times to other threads and it kinda ruins it for the person who's excited about going FI on their car.
