No tuning module? It was supposed to be included,correct?....Yeah,don't blame you,I like to get things completed once I start.Weekend projects,etc.Plus you spent almost 6K.

I did not get a tuner at first. you'll have to send it to IPF for a flash. threre is only a few numbers of tuners out there, It won't be yours to keep. Are your going to have a shop to tune it?

Everyone I know that got the SC kit had the Flash module included with the kit. All I had to do is use their software to link to their web site to down load my tune. Any issues were reported back then IPF turns the tune around in hours not days.

Yes, you can buy or get the tuner on loan with a deposit. There are not many out there.

"Rudeness" is maybe a little extreme. I just want more information before spending a buttload of money. I did get a PM from IPF today. The Supercharger Kit is $5,695.00 and the Price Increase is still being discussed.

It's kind of interesting that the price is increasing. The kit is still really new, so I would have expected initial price to be higher, but then once more and more people started buying I would have expected a price decrease as they would be able to spread out their fixed costs, R&D and other initial investments over a much more broad customer base. Unless their suppliers are increasing prices too, but the most expensive piece would be the Vortech unit I'd think.

I would have thought the opposite. Sell below cost get the word out the increase the price to recoup R&D. The apple biz case from way back. Good biz strategy if you look at successful companies

Problem is you aren't going into a fragmented market where you need to get the brand out. There are really only two super charger options at the moment. Therefore easier to sell at a premium, simply supply & demand really

Only two options but both are not familiar names outside of the current few forums. Make a name...sell product.

Jessie will get it too you, Any supercharger kit needs to be tuned, not all of them have the module with them. I am sure it will be handled professionally. Its really only a day out for the tuner and then install the software and return. Of course you could always buy one and tune you friends and recoup your purchase....

LS COMMENTS!

Thank you LS!!

I would not have known anything was missing unless ready a post.

We do everything possible to make sure everything is there and this was a Web Order not ordered through me. I still miss some things too though. I am not perfect still even after all these years! HAHA!

Everything is worked out now as I always do!

Happy Holidays everyone!

Thanks,

Jesse!

Yes everything's taken care of now, Jesse was a great help in getting me everything I needed. I was a little confused so I didn't know if it was included or not but he cleared it up. But everything's on its way and Im still anxious to get it installed and give it a drive!

I am wondering what can be done in the future to avoid this. I am going to keep my current car and wait for 6th gen. As the wife likes the green camaro So I was thinking about adding the SC just to give it a little more power. I am not one to do 1/4 mile but would be nice to add some power. Well hopefully by next year maybe August they will have this figured out.
