Do you have a manual or automatic? With a manual it should be no problem. With an auto you cab do it, but you are at the ragged edge of the hpfp. With a good tune you should be good, but I.wouls dial it back myself.

Very nice numbers. That's about 630 hp at the crank, which is where I ran out of hpfp. We could have gotten a little more with the meth, but I wanted that just for safety.

I have a 2013. Very little difference between 2012-2014 I believe.

Well I think the ZL1 fuel pump upgrade would be a good idea.

I am going to be getting HPtuners VCM suite soon. I have quite a few other puter mods I wanna do.

What is hpfp?

Yeah if you can get the fuel and the tune right you can hit the 500rwhp mark. Like Gretchen said I been living that life for awhile on my DD.

Bump.

Seems like a real solid kit. I'm torn if I ultimately wanna go ipf with gears or ips. The supercharger would be fun but as a red blooded American male I can appreciate some good looking twins! Hahaha if I got this kit since I have a manual my next move would be talking to the fine folks over at monster clutches I know they are trying hard to get something going for us v6 guys!

I wonder how reliable the v6 is pushing out those numbers with out forging the internals? Even a v8 pushing the high 600s needs to be forged. Nice numbers,

I'm pushing 501rwhp on a DD with stock internals and transmission for almost 3 years now on a so so tune. Clutch is finally starting to fade now. I've beaten tuned CTS-V's at 1/2 thottle .

Pass 500rwhp is kind of the limit but I'm going to test that out once HPT comes out of beta. Or when my tuner says he's ready!

Oh so can't c me you have their old llt kit? Is that why you said your tune is so so? Bc of the LLT limited FI tuning support? This shouldn't be a problem for the LFX correct? And it good to know it took your clutch some time to wear down, about what rpm do you start to feel boost?

Several people using on DD like HP Turbine: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=368127

Should improve MPG while cruising. I plan to get this kit and my Camaro is DD. I'm saving up and upgrading a few other parts in the meantime, might pull the trigger next summer.
