It was slow motion as soon as I took it off I realized I wasn't supposed to.

Lolz yeah that's exactly how I felt. Got my ecu today and my car is now running took it out for a test spin and the new program feels a lot better.Jesse and Arno have been great support. They work fast.I definitely would recommend Ipf. Great power great support.Gotta go back to the dyno again and then time my car at the track.

Should be about a +150 hp difference.

Yeah feels like the tune is smoother. Car feels like it pulls earlier. Even spun out barely pushing the gas.

Back from work travel. Glad to see the car is doing well. Took mine out for the first time in awhile yesterday. The supercharger and tune are performing great. Time to get to the DYNO and get more data back to Arno for any improvements.

I'm glad the car feels better too. Haven't had too much time to work on the car much and get to the dyno. Did quite a few cosmetic mods to it and finally got it back.

Thanks. It's doing great .I just went to a Camaro cruise meet. Got to drive it around turns . Still getting used to the gearing and when boost kicks in.still adjusting to all the extra power.

Sweet! Hey I was hoping you could answer a question. Did the supercharger do anything for your exhaust note?

Oh it definitely did. Got louder and a little more raspy. Not too bad though.I did get a lot of compliments on my exhaust. I did have a video but still trying to load it. My friend recorded me driving under load.

Yeah but mostly when you shift gears or when you let off. You hear the blow by valve.in the car I mostly hear exhaust but I've been told by other people it can be heard when outside of the car.i haven't had anyone drive my car while I listen yet

I don't think it is the limiting factor for the LLTs. We maxxed the HPFP out before the ZL-1 in-tank pump on my car. We are just now getting to the limit of the in-tank pump, but we won't reach it because the turbos and intercooler can't give us anymore than they are now. Terrible problem to have, huh?
