superchargering the llt

ok, I'm looking at getting the IPF supercharger for nightmare. Called Andy the other day, and had some questions for him.

I don't like the catch can they have on there kit. Want an Elite or Mighty Mouse.
don't like the way you have to break your power streering resavor.

Guy's I just want to get some feed back other than it's great. I would like to know the problems y'all had before i jump into this fray.

I want to be about 400hp at the rear

Spyder my friend- I sense a negative attitude toward this experience, and it hasn't even started yet !

You want to get a S/C for "nightmare"?

Upgrading to another catch can is no problem and they don't break your PS res. But you can relocate it.

My advice would be save the cost of the IPF. The '16s will be out soon and a factory V6 with twin turbo's is bound to be in the line up!

Maybe you could design and build your own? That would solve that problem.

First thing will be to either gut your cats to replace them with test pipes, the heat will melt them and plug up the exhaust.

The catch can is an easy mod to do during the install. The IPF one is in a bad location for both draining and condensation.

You are just relocating the power steering reservoir, it is easy. I just don't like the bracket since the reservoir doesn't want to stay seated. I honestly think IPF should use a Mishimoto power steering reservoir and have it attached to their bracket, make it look cooler than that nerdy stock OEM one.

If you do use the Ipf PS resivor location get a good flexible hose or metel elbow so you don't get a kink in the line . Defently go with another catch can MM or elite or good choices . Make sure you route the superchager drain line away from any lines to avoid cutting tru them . ( I have mine zip tied to the side ) . Swap out your spark plugs to a step colder . Like magnum said gut your cats . Also put a rain sock over your flitter
