No need for a lift. The charge pipes are silicone and therefore flexible-another brilliant design element about the IPF kit.

You need to talk to Jesse at IPF about the warranty. I was told it all depends on the age and mileage on your car. If Jesse hasn't gotten back to you he's probably goofing off with Six's car :-)

I didn't go with the warranty, the kit is very well made and based on the drive train I'm comfortable without it

Actually, since a boost guage requires boost to be present, it therefore robs said engine of boost to activate guage, less performance...

Not sure what install in the car would involve but I have been looking for one to put on my bagger. I have found complete kits with sensor around the 300 dollar mark. Some actualy read in numbers and others have more of a bar graph style. Seem to have fast reaction to changes in afrs. Milla seconds sampling speed. Probably more important than a boost gauge with the sc kits unless your gonna play with pullys.

Thanks, but meant AFR gauge included with sc kit and cost to install sc kit?

SC kit about 8 hours, AFR kit weld bung into exhaust for wideband plus approptiate wiring, 2-3 hrs.

IPF has no guages with kit, there are many options for these if you want them. you set it and forget it......

Saw this kit first hand at the Camaro5 Fest, very clean fit and finish... Glad to be in the process of becoming a dealer for Jesse & the IPF crew.

I'd have to agree with everyone else, add Forced Induction & the grins will never stop coming!!!

I installed my AFR meter November, unless you play with youre tune it's not needed right away. I went with a narrow band, welded in my own O2. It's easy.

My booth was direct across from IPF at CamaroFest, I got to talk to them quite a bit. Frankly I hadn’t heard of them before this and was impressed with the quality fit and strength of there display engine, that head unit is not going anywhere. I talked to the Tuner in depth about the fuel pump issue with the direct injection since I had previously been working on this and he convinced me there was no issue, it was all handled with there tune. Bolt on performance for a direct injection V6 FTW. I didn’t get to see any cars run but they have a clean install.
