STS Turbo makes a kit. I think there have been a lot of issues with it though. Poor turbos and oiling problems off the top of my head.

The STS kit is the only kit they make for our cars and it is complete garbage.

The only way I'd go about a turbo is to get a custom one done by a shop. Unless you can wait in which case hopefully the hp tuners suite will be released and we will get more FI support

In theory wouldn't the twin turbo kit from IPS kit fit on the LLT? The issue was always tuning, but that should shortly not be an issue. The intake would need to be changed slightly potentially, but that should be trivial to fab up.

Yes. They already have a kit for the LLT just never released it because of the tuning issues with trifecta. I've talked to them many times and they told me that with reliable tuning they'll release the kit

so if i wanted some FI, do you guys think I should just wait for IPS or someone else to come out with a turbo for the LLT or get a supercharger?

If you want turbos wait for IPS as the kit is already made and for HP to drop the tune. If you want FI now get NOS or IPF. Regardless HP's tune will make NOS and IPF's kit better.

Honestly, it depends on your goals with the car. What do you want to get out of it? Have you ever done FI on any other car before? Something I will say to think about is that the IPS kit is supposed to be almost done but I'd still wait a bit for it to come out and see what results it posts. The IPF supercharger has already been out and the advantages and problems are well documented. Run a search. Something to think about.

Matt.Kim, I'm based in Richmond VA and I have a custom rear mount turbo on an LLT A6 and make great power. I didn't buy the STS kit but the STS rear mount setup is routed properly. If you really want a LLT turbo car and don't have time to build yourself, you could buy the STS system and just replace the oil pump and turbo when/if they fail as others stated. I'm not in the country but will be back in March. If you still don't have FI by then, PM me and I can show you my car.

However, the IPF kit is a proven and reliable FI system and if you like the characteristics of a centrifugal supercharger, I would definitely go for it!

Is HP Tuners really going to do something to help us poor LLT guys out? That would be great! I have probably the last Turdfecta tune before he bailed on us but he would never read my data logs. It'd be nice to get a tune I could trust

I didn't know trifecta bailed.

HP tuners is definitely releasing something for us. Hopefully in the next few months.

They dumped anybody using Rx parts.....Can't say I don't blame them but when they quit on us I was right at the end of my install,(that I did myself) and of course had to totally customize everything in the "kit" to make it work so basically there wasn't anything Rx left in the "kit" but a supercharger mount and they still wouldn't wouldn't finish my tune, so needless to say I'm not real fond of those jerks. This HP tuner news is very very good news to me.
