Thanks again Sycraft, mad props to you and that Beast
Glad you enjoyed it, maybe next time, You Drive !!!

I'm all about this post, I am looking at what turbo to put on my 2012 V6 and hopefully we can figure out the best one with the least amount of maintenance and problems.

If you want a good turbo kit, I'd wait for the IPS kit. I know they already have a tester car so I'd see how it goes because if that kit pans out, that's the one I'd go with no doubt! Just look at the kits they put out for the v8. Their kits are second to none.

sycraft & Lil' Nasty, it was great meeting you both at the rally last weekend... Seeing how clean the IPF install was in person, and hearing about your experience with the kit was excellent.... your car is tastefully modded.. very clean/sexy. Lil' Nasty, holy crap... who knew a V6 could sound like that! Simply amazing. I was excited to see your heritage grill too; I've got one in my garage and wasn't sure if I wanted to paint it yellow or black... after seeing yours; now I know. THANKS!

I went home with great ideas from both of your builds.. making new friends, hanging out with old ones, and getting kick-ass 1st hand info & ideas is exactly what I was looking to get out of this weekend... I just wish I knew you were giving out rides, sycraft.
