Considering the IPS twin turbo

I have the most base model 2012 V6 offered and it has only the basic bolt ons, ported throttle body, Roto-fab CAI, SLP Loudmouth axle-back... Since I'm going turbo soon, is there anything else I would need outside of what comes included in the basic kit itself? Or will it just bolt-on and run with the tune normally? Anyone else install this one on a 2012 V6 yet, results?

There's welding involved...at least. Not quite as simple as, say, the IPF S/C install.

Are the turbos both coolant and oil fed? Even my engine from a 1988 Mitsubishi Starion that I dropped into my 1987 Dodge Raider is both. I get the impression that these are only oil fed/returned, but I don't really know.

I'd do the twins first. If you do gears first, they may be too much when u do the twins aftet

So far I am inclining to do a S/C because the tuning and the hassle for it to be oil and water cooled and if the turbo messes up you won't be able to drive. If the S/C fails you are still able to drive it.

I thought about putting 3.45 gears in (well full rear cradle swap) I think the biggest I would attempt would be 3.73.

I don't think so but I may be wrong soon as my painter get his behind in gear and finish. Putting 3.91 in mine the problem is not the gears but the traction may be a issue.

I go back and forth on this. It looks like the IPS system puts out some serious power!

thanks for any and all advice on the twin turbo matter, after much consideration I decided to go with the IPF S/C, just seems like the best choice for me. Now to anyone who already has the IPF installed I post this question. Would I need new plugs? I've read a few people on here who just ran with stock components, but I'm just curious, I would like it to run as efficiently as possible.

It's not needed but my car ran a lot smoother with the colder heat range plugs and with the gap recommended by Arno.If you need anymore info you can always pm me.

I also have the most base LS Camaro 2012, my car rips, look for my build thread... Still on stock plugs, but considering a change. I have over 20k miles now on my system, so the plugs should be changed...

It's a nice kit. It makes pretty decent power. I think you made a good choice. There will always be someone faster but you'll be the "someone faster" a lot more than you won't.

Car ran great on the stock plugs, but you should be using colder plugs, I used AutoLite iridium plugs XP5263 ($6 apiece)
