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.

The Vortech V3 unit is a self contained unit with its own oil supply. Very easily maintained. I have had this unit before and the reliability is fantastic.

No, the Vortech V3 unit is self contained, you change its oil on a schedule like your motor. Just Do It !!!!

As everyone has said it is the V3 Vortech unit so that is self-contained oiling..

Oh and if anyone has any fears of self-contained oiling do not. I've run multiple cars into the 9's with self-contained oiling at 14-15psi on the V8's. Once you start tackling more than that, going with the oil-fed units are the way to go because of the HD bearings.

So no need for these to be oiled and it is a lot simpler install for the DIY'r without having to run oil lines or tap the pan for the return.
