Very difficult for me to believe that Jesse would be flat out ignoring you unless there is more to the story. You say it has been weeks...He responded on this thread on the 23rd of January I believe. Have you tried to contact him since? Did you just send one email a few weeks ago and nothing since, or have you tried again? Have you called IPF? I mean more people than just Jesse work for them. I'm sure someone will answer if you call.

Its one thing if you are actively trying to contact IPF but are getting ignored or passed around with no outcome. Its another if you are just waiting for them to contact you after you talked or left an email with them a few weeks ago.

When was that kit installed? on the other car??

I've emailed him, called him, left voicemails, gone to the actual IPF website and wrote to them. Like I said before, the person who has been helping me with this builds clutches for IPF and installs superchargers for them. Hes also been trying and nothing. I just want to know my options because I don't want to sell it if its the SC itself, and I don't want to keep it.


On the other car, I think it was installed a couple months before mine.

Send a private message to ASH@EDS and see if he can get hold of Jesse for you.

I understand the pain of not being responded to. I deal with customer service on a daily basis.

Sadly it sounds if you are having a failure on a 6000 s/c kit over a 5 dollar part. I think johnyb might have a quick solution to the problem with his hose or fitting problems that he has run into.

Please hang in there I know you will enjoy the car if you can get through this glitch.

As a side note I read the forum fairly often and this is the first ipf s/c problem I have seen so far.

The PS line was the glitch that put the "stall" in my install.

JD my Master Installer at IPF, worked and worked with it til he finally started over from scratch.

Got a new line and oversized O-ring if I'm not mistaken. He was taking pics the whole way and expected this to be the new recommended procedure.

The info should be available anytime. Hang in there man!

I too thought about an oversize o-ring, but then I figured that the bigger the o-ring, the bigger the inside diameter of that o-ring would be as well. I did get mine to stop leaking and inhaling air, and I probably did it the most hillbilly way possible. (No offense to actual Hillbillies). I wrapped the fitting with teflon tape and stuck it back in there. I wonder how long until the power steering fluid melts it.

Unfortunately, the Torx head bolt that holds said fitting in place can't take much torque before things go bad, and I noticed the bolt was coming out with aluminum in the bolt threads, so I've managed to strip out the threads in the power steering pump. Sigh.

Anyway, it took probably fifty or more cycles of cranking the wheel back and forth, back and forth while up on a floor jack to bleed the system out. There was air in the farthest reaches of the rack. The wheel started out shuddering like crazy, but slowly got better. It helped to have a helper at this point, as I wouldn't have been able to tell that air was continuing to come up out of there without another set of eyes on it.

I was also able to load a revised tune that Arno put up on the IPF tuning site, so I think I'll be good to go.

For today. Jesse called me as I was getting towards finished last night and offered to buy me a new power steering pump, which is incredibly nice. It should be all kinds of fun to replace it, but ya gotta do...

I can't wait for today's work...because I drive my car all over all day when I'm working...yee haw.

Getting the air out of the rack was probably the worst part of the install. We took our time the second time after re-seating the inlet to the engine, and thing went a lot better. I'm kind of at a loss of why there would be no pressure by the OP. It does sound like a blockage or pinch in the hose.

This is good news. Not good that this seems to be a concern about the IPF system, but good that new parts and a method for this part of the install should become the norm.

Haven't heard any other problems with the kit past this.
