Updated the post with colder plug information. If you run non-stock plugs please list the type and how many steps colder it is. I posted my Denso plugs because they are pre-gapped to 0.032".

How about tuner info?

IPF Tuner or HP Tuner?

Which one is better?

IPF is the only one that I would trust to tune for their own supercharger. I think the only way HP Tuners would be able to tune for a supercharger is if IPF gave them a license to use their software.

HP tuners can tune the 2012 fully, all parameters are available, IPF only still for the 2010-2011

This is an awesome write up
I am definitely leaning towards the IPF supercharger
But for someone who has this as a daily driver is it worth stocking up on belts and parts before it breaks down ? and what other cost do you incur when getting an IPF ?
Sorry for the noob questions this is pretty new to me when it comes to FI for your car.
I want to make sure that I have a reliable ride everyday like I still do now.

Of you want stable I would keep your car the way it is IPF is the most stable of the bunch for FI but anything can happen I lost my engine from something in related to the kit but I'm sure the higher compression didn't help. I'm buying a new one and trying again but make sure you have enough to fix things before you buy

I've never had a belt break, and they are available at auto parts stores.

Only other costs you really have is the supercharger oil, which is maybe an extra $10 per oil change. I think it is $30 for 3x 4 oz bottles, the supercharger requires around 4 ounces.

It is a reliable system, I'm just pushing mine like crazy with mods.

1600 miles on mine so far and not easy ones! Still no issues but oil changes, also note you must use vortech oil to maintain the charger warranty

Installed my IPF at 43K and I now have 76K on the system. This system is rock solid if you follow maintainance schedules. I have had more issues with my vert top than the supercharger.
