Considering to buy FI system.

So, I am likely to buy an FI system by end of next week for my 2010 LLT car. but i am a new member and novice to this and surely wouldn't want to read every thread with 10-20 pages of comments.

so i am here looking for advices, opinions, and other members reviews to help decide which system to buy, surely everyone is bias to what they bought but yet its helpful.

So here what I need for my system to be able to deliver:
1. ease with installment, my car is DD and i cant have the car away from me for more than 3 days, so i need a system that can be installed easily by any performance shop by 2 days and not 2 weeks or months.

2. perfected tune. i did read a lot of problems with tune with LLT engine, so i wouldn't buy a system that would have me to the garage every once and then to tweak the tune. I dont want a 5-6k dollar headache.

3. Performance: at least 400 wrhp and 340-360 wrtq from a system is decent for me, I want the system to make the car able to beat a stock SS, 5.0, SRT8, 370z and even lightly moded one, like only cars with only intake and exhausts.

I also would like a system with Trifecta tune, because I already bought the tune, but I have no problem of changing tunes if that would be better for me.


sorry for the log post, but 5-6k dollar is a lot of money and I dont want to buy and regret and cry in the corner for weeks. so please guide me in this.

I like the idea of having a turbo more, because of sound and all, but I do not mind getting a Supercharger at all.

Well since it sounds like you want an easy carefree system, a supercharger might be better. Turbos sometimes require more maintenance. That's just my opinion though.

I'd give a look into the ipf supercharger. It has six figures worth of research and design behind it, can be installed really easily either by you or a qualified mechanic. It also comes with the tune needed and the customer service behind it is superb

It also makes close to the hp numbers u want. The tune is perfect. And the system is reliable.

We do super chargers, single turbo, and twin turbo for the camaro, buicks, and caddilacs. We also produce several other performance products for the 3.6 DI motors.

Here is a link to videos of several:

I have the IPF system. It was a breeze to install (I did it myself in my driveway,took me 2 days of going back and forth with no electricity here in NY after Sandy) Hitting the dyno and track in 2 weeks before it closes and yes this is my DD. If you have any questions PM me!

Get the latest GM High Tech magazine, my car is in there, took 1 day to install, included bothe before and after dyno runs. Super easy to do and completely reversable if needed. I have 414 RWHP and an very happy with the kit.

I like the RX system because of the options it provide but I also read about a lot of problem with the tunning and mixed results

Emeries,

Glad to see you are ready to join us in the V6 FI world! It's a fun one. I will tell you that IPF's Tuning and Support is unparallelled in the Camaro V6 community. Check out our YouTube channel and our website I have provided below and then give me a call. Let me know what you think. I would like to discuss your options with IPF further, but not on a Forum.

Also, check out BillionaireHero's Post he has a Synergy Green LLT IPF SC Kit and it kicks! He has a video on here doing 0-100.

Thanks,

Jesse!

I have had the IPF system for five months and could not be happier. My husband did the install in our shop, as he is a mechanic. We had it done in two days with only partial days on both. They worked very hard to get the tune perfected on my car, as I was the first, and I believe still only, car at altitude.

I shaved a bunch of time off my 1/4 mile (1.5 seconds at least) and gained 125 horse power over my pre-system dyno. It has been a breeze to maintain, as we just do the oil change on it when we do my regular oil change at 5,000 miles, even though it only requires it at every 6,000 miles. I get great feedback at the track and at car shows about how great my system looks. Everyone asks me if it is a factory install because it looks so clean. It sounds great and is great to see my passengers thrown back in their seats for the first time. It is also nice to surprise the other cars at the track by the speed and the noise, and that's from a girl!

I highly recommend the guys at IPF, who have been great supporters of me through this exciting journey. They have always been there when I needed them when we had questions about the install and the tune (including nights and weekends!), and I was a very early adopter. I think I bought their third system. They now have tons more out in the field and we are all enjoying the heck out of our cars with no down time. My only problem now is putting that power to the wheels so I can get a better launch from my manual... (winter projects!)

Good luck and ENJOY! Feel free to PM me if you have any further questions or if I can give you any more details.

Now Riki's car is at Mile High so we normally see a lot more increase in Horse Power since it starves at that Altitude. There are more Posts to come. Stay IPF Tuned......

Thanks,

Jesse!

Turbo systems can be maintenance free if you keep at reasonable boost levels and use quality parts. For proof of reliablity, most factory FI cars use turbos, research and you will see. Also, my turbo cam has lasted more than 50k miles at 5psi without any major maintenance that is related to the turbo. However, it seems the supercharger options out there for our car is legit as well.

I've had my IPF system for a few months now and am very happy with it. Seems like it has more power now than the day I first had it installed. Maybe the colder weather has something to do with it. I've had the pleasure of surprising a few cars at a red light.
Mine ran a 13.85 1/4 mile but that was with aftermarket 21inch custom Chevy wheels on it. I had to run the car with track control on or it would just spin. I have no doubt with the right tires and wheels I could shave a second off my time. My only complaint about the system and I'm sure it wouldn't matter what system you went with is the much lower capacity washer fluid container. Other than that it's a nice upgrade.

As someone who has spent $9,500 at Rx then taken all of the stuff off only to spend another chunk of change on an IPF system, IPF gets my vote. Feel free to PM me if you'd like any more info as I refuse to turn this into a rivalry warfare thread.

Emeries,
First I would like to say welcome to Camaro5. Everyone here will be more than happy to share their experiences with you and their own opinions.

Further down that road, my 2010 LLT Camaro is Supercharged by IPF Tuning. It’s a bolt on kit and 100% reversible, low OEM build, V8 power with v6 efficiency and comes with a powertrain warranty.

The installation of this kit ranges from 6-10 hours.

My car stock at 235 whp (forgot base torque #) jumped up to 392 wrhp and 320 wrtq. This is with just a supercharger and tune. The only other aftermarket part on my car is catback exhaust MRT 2.0. I also have a dyno sheet if you wish to see it.

Because of this supercharger, I am able to smile as wide as the grand canyon when I beat a v8 =) and the looks on their faces are never forgotten.

However, the tune that IPF uses is not Trifecta. It’s their very own custom tune. Since IPF works with GM, they have access to the codes in the ECU. From this, they can change the computer codes enabling more out of the v6’s engine rather than adding more parts to get the right Air Fuel Ratio and etc. Their tune also can be calibrated or adjusted to the DA of where you live. If you have to look at it from a different view, I see it as quality over quantity. IPF perfects a tune just for your car.

I can strongly vouch for IPF Tuning because I was their very first customer and got my kit back in April and my car is as healthy as she was when I bought her. My Camaro is a Daily driver as well. (currently a college student at Arizona State University) I travel back to California for holidays or whenever I get the chance. Going 70-85mph all the way back to Ventura County, CA from Tempe, AZ (about 400 miles) I get about 29-31 mpg.

I may have missed a few things but If you have any further questions, feel free to send me a PM. I would be more than happy to tell you more about my LLT kit from IPF.

Regards,
Brandon

Don't have to mention brand...... :P I'm on the fence. Always loved Turbo over SC but I like what I'm seeing in these threads on the SC's. Whatever you go with I'm sure you're going to have an even bigger permagrin!

Congrats on your soon to be purchase.

Permagrin baby! I just got my IPF kit ordered! Going to be installed on Monday! I went with this kit because the tune is more proven and reliable. And let me tell you, the tune is by far the most important part of any FI option you look at!
