IPS LFX TWIN TURBO 570 HP...$6300.00

Need advise, has anyone ever heard of IPS?? Whats there reputation opinions?

IPS 2012 Camaro V6 (LFX) Twin-turbo Kit: The BEST components. The BEST results. Period.

Our highly anticipated turbo kit for the 2012+ V6 Camaro is here! There is no other kit available for your Camaro that makes the numbers ours does on a stock LFX and pump gas — 460 rwhp and 443 ft/lbs of torque !! That is 575 HP at the engine, almost DOUBLE the factory output from a truly bolt-on turbo kit.

The incredible power gains come from using nothing but the best components in our kit. We have tested many many different turbos and turbo combinations over the last few years with different GM Corvettes and Camaros and have applied what has worked best to the new LFX Camaro. No expense was spared in R&D and we are proud to not just build the entire kit inside our 4 walls, but that we have managed to source 99% of the kit’s components from USA-made sources. MADE IN THE USA!!!

This kit is our "Entry Level" turbo kit. This is still uses quality components like Garrett turbos, TiaL wastegates and BOV, Fragola lines. It uses T3/T4 60 trim turbos. Older technology, but still Garrett quality!



A break-down of the BASE twin-turbo kit components are as follows:

2x Garrett GT28 Journal Bearing Turbos
2 x IPS TIG-welded 304 Stainless-steel Mid Pipes
2 x IPS 2.5” TIG-welded 304 Stainless-steel Downpipes
2 x ATP Internal Wastegates
1 x TiaL “Q” Blow-off Valve (Info here)
1 Χ 3” Aluminum Bar & Plate FMIC Core
1 x IPS Aluminum Intercooler Deflector Shield
1 x Oil Return Pump & Bracket
IPS Oil Feed & Return Line Kit featuring Fragola “Soft” Nylon Braided Hose & Black Fittings
IPS Sport Crimp Lines & Fittings. These are Mandated in Top-Fuel Racing for the absolute best in quality. No cheap China-bay Fittings Here!
IPS 3” 6061 Aluminum Intercooler Tubing for lighter weight and better heat dispersion
IPS 3” 6061 Aluminum Charge-pipe
K&N Filters
IPS Lower Skid-plate
Windshield Washer Bottle & Accessories
Polished Oil Cap w/oil return
Retains Factory Engine Cover
RX Dual Check Valve Catch Can Setup
We want to make driving and racing a turbo-charged Camaro available to everyone, and the new kit we put together follows the same philosophy that has put IPS at the forefront of high performance motorsports for so many years.

Would this kit be recommended for a daily driver?? And would it have any effect on the mpg?

If money wasn't a problem I would try to buy this. I'm interested in seeing who the first person is to do it, and see their response on it.

Idk where I read this but someone was questioning this kit not requiring to upgrade the fuel pump.

IPS has build some of the baddest V6 Camaro's on the streets since 2011. All their work is documented here on the forums. Hands down the best turbo kits made for the V6.

Who makes the intercooler? I see mention of the intercooler piping, but not the radiator itself.

The T3/T4 is indeed a tried and true unit. You can buy rebuild kits for those things all over the place. That's the unit I would upgrade my '87 Dodge Raider with if I ever felt the need.

hi, that would be my car. I use it as a daily driver and love it. I'm constantly playing around in it and i'll get 20 mpg. but just light driving I can do 25 mpg or better.
johnny I believe they made the intercooler from a core. I haven't found any name brand markings on it yet.

On my 285 mile drive to Las Vegas the day before yesterday I got 30.5 average MPG, per the DIC. And that's not a straight and level drive, either. Gotta love forced induction that's on when you want it and laying in wait when you don't, huh?

The 25 mpg is combined city/highway. I used to average 26 mpg city/ highway. I'm sure if I sat on the highway for a while I could do 30

This is actually a really good pricing for a twin if i'm not mistaken. I would love for someone to jump on this and get it, shame I don't have near the funds for this. I feel like a twin turbo, or even a turbo, is just so far out of my bank accounts mind right now =(.

Its a bit of a bummer that not many of these kits have been installed yet, but the company reputation seems solid. The build quality looks good and clean, and HP Turbine (posted above) seems to love the kit and hasn't had any real issues. Based on that I would recommend this kit.

As far as power...this has got it. Pretty sure this guy has whooped up on bolt on + cammed SS Camaros and a hung with a GTR.

Well, it is about the same peak hp and slightly less peak tq when compared to a zl1. The v6 will be lighter, but the zl1 will put the power to the ground better. With the the right tires and suspension upgrades you would be on par with the zl1.

My very basic IPF supercharger is faster in a straight line than a stock SS. This would be much quicker, especially in lower RPM's.

I want. Wouldn't you need new suspension, clutch and brakes as well?

You'd probably burn up the stock clutch pretty quickly. The shortcomings of the suspension would be more apparent, but could be dealt with by driving prudently and the brakes, pretty much the same situation.

I haven't had/seen the need to do any of that stuff. It really depends how far you want to go and how deep your pockets are.

Exactly.

Clutch will surely take more abuse so just keep a budge for that, but unless your driving like a bat out of hell all the time, or you plan to take the car to track day events the stock suspension and brakes will do just fine in my opinion.

But of course, if you have the budget, doing suspension and brakes will make for a much better handling, and well rounded car.

IPS is one of the best aftermarket support we have as of the moment, specially on the Force Induction department. Man if this would be on the LLT I would be so all over this.
