Nothing yet Rick! It's almost been a month now since I dropped my car off. I honestly think the shop bit off a little more than they could chew when it comes to projects there . I know they are working pretty hard to get Terri's car (darth_emma) put together.

Everytime you're the first to test something, it takes awhile. Just look at how rx took five months with yellow glides car

Well they just recently chopped a hole in the hood to fit her insane intake elbow. I don't think there is much else she could do to it now.

IPS did build one LLT TT in the past. If everyone remembers Orange5thGen's car. But last I spoke with him he sold the coupe and bought a LLT Vert. And he was swapping over the kit to that car.

They made one other llt twin turbo car that i know of. They had a lot of pains with the tuning. They were doing remote dyno tuning with trifecta. The results were up and down.

Yeah that would be the car. Not sure why I recalled thinking it was a SS.

I've talked with ips about the possibility about still doing the llt kit but they said that they didn't like the remote tuning. That they wouldn't mind if they could do their own tuning but weren't interested in remote tuning anymore

When I was talking with them they were saying that the remoting tuning was a horrible and scary time for them. Like run away the car might explode on the dyno kind of deal

That was along time ago, I would figure that remote tuning is a little better now. Everyone does it now across the board. And if you have the right equipment to monitor things should be fine. Me and Vince were remote tuning this weekend for a change to my kit. It all went smooth and I was at home lol. But I get that in house is the best way. I would say IPS should just buy the Trifecta suite for their shop so they can tune in house. But I'm thinking that no one in house knows how to deal with the LLT.

I figured I would post an update of some of my car coming together. The build was held up for a while when the turbos were changed and new custom flanges had to be fabricated. The flanges came in last week and everything is moving forward . I was told that the turbos will most likely be mounted up by the end of the day.

So my car is up and running but still at IPS. Making great power and an easy 8.5 to 9# on just waste gates. There were some snags with the PCV system but Tracy snuck in there and helped out. Thank you Tracy. Currently there is just a small smoking issue that's being worked on. I'm hoping to pick it up any day once the smoking is resolved. There was talk about adding a boost controller and bumping the boost to 12# but that communication kind of got lost once it started smoking so I'm not really sure if it's happening right now or not. If not, I'll just save myself the hassle of replacing half shafts until I find a v8 rear I can put in.
