Supposed to get the final parts from IPF today so I started the install. My dad was visiting from North Carolina with my sister and they decided to stay an extra day to help me out (makes getting the bumper off easier). Now I'm just waiting on the UPS truck and the tune. Should be a fun weekend of testing though.

Very nice. Do you have any more pictures of the install?

Hope you used loc-tite on those bracket bolts. There's some vibration that goes on there.

Have fun snaking that flexible hose from the intercooler to the throttle body, it's a tight fit and it helps to have two people for that one.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Got loc-tite on them but I also have the correct torque on them also. They shouldn't move anywhere. I got all the pipes routed correctly, but I am trying to figure out how to route the line from the catch can to the intake (before the supercharger). I got 60 inches of hose and it feels like I need 72 inches (I'll tell my wife I'm coming up 12 inches short again). I got spare though because I routed my driver side line behind the intake manifold and then behind the fuse box, same with the passenger side. I just need to trim the line when I verify everything is fitted correctly. The passenger side is busy but I wanted to keep the drivers side clean since it shows off my painted valve covers with the supercharger in the foreground.

To be fair, pictures of the mustang are required as well.

Looks awesome! What parts are you waiting for? And how long does it usually take for them to get you the tune? For anybody that has the IPF. Cant wait to hear how much you love it!

IPF said 24 hours for the tune. The parts... I'm waiting on the brake booster check valve, power steering relocation parts, the intake plug and bracket, and spacers for the supercharger brackets. They are supposed to get here today (UPS says out for delivery).

IPF/Arno have the tunes waiting. As soon as I got the flash module I was able to down load from their website and flash the ECU. The first tune gave me an idle dive when I would come to a stop and depress the clutch. Arno had this fix within 1hr and I was running again. Arno has been great with just the obd data I have feedback to him. Car run really great right now. Can't wait to get back from vacation and get it back on the dyno.

Managed to get most of the install done. Just have to extend the MAF wires and double check all the connections. Then refill the power steering fluid, load a tune when I get it and start her up and hope it works.

Yeah they have been very helpful with the questions I have had so far during this quest. I just dont know what to do for the actual tune module. I wish I could buy a used one. Because I dont want to rent one...but I dont want to pay the $700 or whatever for everything. Maybe it can all work out. But back to the thread...the build is looking great man! I cant wait to start mine! Stuff is supposed to arrive Saturday!

You won't be sorry with the IPF system ! I understand the $ issues. This is not cheap by any means.

Oh I know! I plan on never getting rid of this car. And wanted to make it my own. And in reality this deal was going to be way cheaper than eventually getting an SS and then modding it. So why not have a fast and unique v6? Gotta pay to play though I guess you could say.

It was blue, but the person before me painted it black. I have swapped it out for a black one right now.

Waiting on my tune now, ordered it this morning.
