Just noticed you are from Yonkers, my dad grew up there haha.

So to submit my car for COTW or to hold off till I have more mods done, that is the question lol.

Turbos are more efficient for sure, not arguing that. Ive always wanted a SC car though. I've stuck around this long on the LLT waiting but its pretty clear now it's time to move on. That's just my opinion, I'm sure many people are happy with the options put out.

You have a 2010, IMO I would hold off and NOT sueprcharger. Too many tuning difficulties, Mine is a supercharged 2010. If I had to do it again, I'd honestly just save the money.

Yup I'm in the same boat as you. I'm saving for a 2017 50th anniversary 6th gen SS. Should be sweet.

Turbo's (for our V6) will build more power. But I'm honestly not a big fan of Turbos.

Hold off because my car will be ready soon, we can shoot it out! lol

And I'm not actually from Yonkers but I am near it, security purposes...

SC does seem to sound cooler, though a good BOV sounds sick too. Its only been 3 years too, aftermarket demand is high for these cars too, there is MUCH more to come no doubt. That said, if I had the money I'd be in an 8 right now.

Sucks because I got the 6 originally because I was driving 30-60 miles a day. I didn't know after I graduated I'd get a job 5 minutes away. I've done 400 miles in the last month...

I think that's my ultimate goal for my car. I like having my V6 and though a V8 is enticing I like the idea of a charged six. At the moment my wheels have made such a difference that I'm done with mods for my car for a while. On to my computer! Haha.

Cleaned the spark plug off, still misfiring. Oil is getting into the cylinder at high load, high RPM pulls. Off to the damn dealer for I don't know how many times now.

I definitely agree with you. The almost non-existent tuning capabilities and problems with the engine have pretty much made it clear to me too. I'm not going to be investing way too much into this engine anymore.

Yup, I've been strung along long enough. After seeing those pics, that's not an acceptable top mount SC kit in the slightest if you have to completely modify the look of your car for it. It's obvious nobody can/will provide that option for us, and even aside from all that, I'm not convinced anybody can tune it.

Even if I didn't think that looked completely redneck, I don't much like the idea of cutting a hole in your hood, removing all that bracing and screwing with the crumple zones.

heh, I got the wrong size when i got mine, so i went redneck on it. I got the hose that normally goes on it, and stuffed a wire nut down the hole.

So, I have a question for all the rest of us LLT v6'ers.

How many of you just had your build plans go up in smoke with the results of the RX top mount?

I've been building my plan around that supercharger with the erroneous assumption that it would fit under a stock hood.

If I dump the supercharger, then I don't need more than 2/3 of the rest of the hard mods that i had planned for the car and with the tuning 'fun' this car is, very much makes this engine combo back into a dead end.

Of course, i still love the car, but it feels like it's knees have been chopped out from under it.

Is this common, or is it just the disappointment feeling larger than it really is.

I'm in the exact same boat as you, as you can probably tell. I was planning on that as the future for this car. That's why I bought the dual valve catch can specifically. Now it's scrapped. I don't want a remote mounted SC, I don't want turbos, and I certainly don't want 6'' of supercharger sticking out of my hood.

Now it looks like SC customers have to budget another $1500-ish for a compatible hood. Sweet. Might as well trade in on an SS once you add in that expense to an already pricey chinese SC option that probably won't ever matter because Vince can't properly tune these ECMs for FI according to some that have gone that route.

I won't be doing any big mods now. I'll probably do a Black Ice, washer relocation and scoop, and ported TB, that's about it.

The LLT was a major headache and an overall disappointment for anyone interested in modding. I'll be looking to get out of this car sooner rather than later.

As much as I love my car I don't think I will ever go that far into it. I would love to have a High performance build but honestly the LLT is not the best candidate for it. I was very excited for this top mount SC since it could lead to other possibilities for our cars but seeing how the hood needs to be modified I don't think many will go for it now.

Honestly for me I plan to call it a day with my engine modding once I get my long tubes and a tune to get rid of the CEL that comes along with it. I probably will do some other minor things and suspension but once I get LT my engine modding is done for

Same here, I never really wanted to go FI either it be SC or turbos or even nitrous (not really a fan of it although it is cheap enough maybe one day . The way I see it is: I'm young (23) having my camaro be first car I ever started modding, still learning things about cars. No need for me to go over board and go FI honestly. If I ever want to go FI I will down the road prob on something other than my LT.

With that being said I do appreciate how things have "evolved" for our car. In the beginning we barely had anything to add as a mod since I believe these engines weren't in anything people would normally mod, unlike the LS3 and L99. Yet despite the trouble with tuning and such I give mad props to Rx developing both their SC, Mace and Rx with the cam/head combo, Trifecta and IPF with the tuning issues. I know it isn't easy but they aren't giving up and are trying to see what can be done to the LLT, it may or may not be a lost cause who knows. But I do appreciate the effort that is being put in.

I agree with you guys and after some disturbing PMs with tracy from RX it looks like I'm going to need another engine rebuild...2 in less than 50,000 miles, and my tranny issue still hasn't been addressed...WTF!

I haven't kept up with the root Sc kit.
Why is everyone ditching the supercharger system now ? The root just needs a new hood right ? Or is there something wrong with the kit itself
