I'd imagine haha, with that said would you say that you are happy with the kit? Does it throw you back in your seat much? I heard this kit doesn't produce that much low end torque?

I'm glad I got it, provides power up top while keeping it tame down low. It will pin you back in the seat, you just have to wind the engine up. Only problem I had was the catch can, but IPF said they are going to look at a revision for it.

Its a centrifugal SC, so no it doesn't provide a lot of low end "kick" because the power is linear, and rises as the rpms rise. It will still put a hurting on a stock or lightly modded SS from a roll though.

That said, a stock V6 runs mid to upper 14s at this guy's track, so to be in the low 13s is not a bad thing. Knocking a second or more off his "before" time is good in my opinion. On other tracks, where the DA is better, this kit has gotten V6s into the high 12s.

Attached 2 images of my meth kit. One is the tank placement which I have to replace both my trunk mat and the passenger side carpet. I initially had it at the very rear of the trunk with the fitting facing inward but my low level indicator kept flashing. I moved the tank to the current location and no more flashing red, but it is a pain to fill up.

I ran the line on the passenger side through the cabin air filter location, around the strut tower and to the nozzle. I had the IAT sensor on the bottom of the pipe but moved it to the top because of a CEL that kept coming up.

I actually think with the Meth kit I can recreate a low DA with a hot summer track where I can get grip. Can't change how the track prep is though, last time during our last run we saw rocks all over the launch area.

Heading to the track again, going to see how the car does with 100% gas. I've been spraying the Methanol and am having zero knock retard, haven't felt any misfires either. Hopefully it's a good night, ready to get into the 12's.

I also stripped the threads in the cylinder head where the front intake manifold bolt goes. Went to the parts store and got a Heli-Coil kit, all fixed now.

Still too much Methanol, my AFR was reading 10:1 in 3rd gear, a gear I can't test on the street since that is into the 100 mph range. Did get back to 13.4, I just couldn't remove any more methanol without switching nozzles.

Before I forget the weights:
Camaro with full tank of gas, subwoofer, and driver = 4065
Mustang with full tank of gas and driver = 3730

We weighed them right after the last run.

Removed both the Plenum Spacer and Intake Manifold spacer. Might be going to the track tomorrow to see how the car runs. I also found some boost leaks with the meth injection, my engine bay had red dye everywhere from the boost juice.

Don't know how many runs I will be doing though, there will be a jet engine car out there tomorrow. I want to see how it runs.

No, they were from where the silicon hose connects to the throttle body. It may be leaking from back pressure when the blade closes though.

Car is loving the dual nozzle setup, I'm getting 21 degrees of timing with 3 degrees of knock retard. I'm going to look at doing a pulley down to increase boost now. Not much, maybe 12 psi max.

I also discovered that the installer of SIXJAK's IPF was correct on the recirculation valve. The plunger part faces the boost pressure. When you have a safe injection solenoid hooked up and it relieves the pressure in the vacuum line the pressure will open the valve and dump pressure. I will be adding this before I do my pulley down since I will be relying on meth for safety.

The spacers make no difference on a FI setup, I ran a 13.4 @ 107 again. Only difference I feel is that my car feels like it is back on my old all-season Pirelli's, spinning in 2nd gear.

Since I haven't posted a picture of the Mustang in a while, this is from 2 weeks ago at the track.

No new videos, won't be for a while till we get helmets. She is running a 14.1 @ 102 right now, but she is losing a lot of time when the car shifts into 2nd gear. It shifts so hard the tires start spinning and the computer shifts up to 3rd real fast, then shifts back down to 2nd gear.

with better tires the car should be LOW 13s!

Look at me.. I have a convertible which is heavier... only mods are tune, 3.55 gears and a simple axle-back on all season tires.... and a morbidly obese driver (300 pounds)... and my best runs are 13.58 @ 102 MPH... so yeah... 13's easily... also assuming they can get some descent weather! (my 13.58 was with a DA of 330)

Might sound backwards, but would a softer TCM setting perhaps help out, and keep her from doing the crazy 2 - 3 - 2 shifting because of all the spinning? I can see how that would totally kill a run.

We have a BAMA hybrid tune but when it shifts it takes a while. Might get 3 new tunes and try the softer one, but my wife likes the MPT tune better since it removes the adaptive shifting. I'm really going to be screwed once she gets a Procharger installed.

I am seeing red dye from the boost juice in front of the Plenum cover, think the stock gasket is leaking. I don't have the spacers on so I may have to seal it more.

Sweet. I know those cars are definitely capable. It's crazy what less weight and better transferred power can do. @magnum sounds like your car is goingto hVe a hard time vs the procharger.it is good to see your diligence in gettting the Ipf v6 Camaro down. Looks like a ton of fun.

Yeah, I also keep working on my reaction time. 0.050 might be great, but that is sleeping when you race against my wife.

Wife is car #837 and these are back to back runs.

I may have plugged all my intake leaks too well. I was doing a second gear pull and when I let off the throttle I heard a loud BOOM and engine was not responding and eventually turned off. Popped the hood open and my intake pipe at the throttle body blew off. I was able to get it back on and got to work, just have to be careful on the way home. I may need to see if I can get an elbow connector for the throttle body and get a better clamp.

Dang, she knows how to cut a light! Get some consistent ETs and make some money in the brackets!!!

(i've had 4 perfects lights in the Flex... )

Assuming you are running a recirc valve? Is is working properly? Would hate for you to hurt something...

Yeah, its working properly, the clamp on the throttle body was worn out along with the silicon tube itself. So I did the smart thing, built a new upper intake tube:
