IPS TWIN TURBO for the LLT

Okay, let's say the stars align on earth and HPTuners comes through with a solid tune for the LLT. Then IPS decides they want to release their twin turbo product for the LLT, but the catch is we have to have enough demand for them to actually release it. So my question is, how many of y'all would seriously consider owning an IPS twin turbo for our LLT's? I don't want just a "Yeah I would get one." But how about a, "Sign me up I have the money!" Or "Oh shit, it's not just a dream, I'm saving up to buy one!" I've already considered doing a custom twin turbo but man is it hard to do anything around this area without driving hundreds of miles, and this kit would be a salvation for me. This post is just to get an idea if there is others like me out there willing to purchase this kit because if there isn't enough demand I might just have to travel far and wide to get my twins. Thank you for taking time to read my post and have a great day!

Sadly, I fall under the "Yeah I would get one but I'm a college student and don't have that kind of money in the bank to drop into a TT". If I did it of course would go to paying off the rest of the loan or to college (of course). But would love to have IPS and HPTuners work something out (though doesn't sound like it with the LFX engine in only 2010-11 models and announcement of the 2016 Gen 6)

Same here. would love this kit for my ABM, but recently sold a house at a huge loss and retiring next year. So mod money is VERY tight right now.

Yea, I'd get one. I don't think we're winning him over, if this is the best we can do.

Yeah I started losing hope after 1 day of posting this lol, but I'm not giving up on a twin turbo setup. I have my heart set on it and won't be happy till I get it.

For me it's kind of all about price. If it is $4,500 that sounds awesome. If it's $6,500 id rather look at upgrading to an SS. Also for us in Cali it has to be CARB legal which is a whole different monster. (and another reason to go the SS route)

You can be pretty sure it won't be $4.5K or CARB legal. It will make way more power than a stock SS though.

You won't find a TT kit for less than that, that has quality work. SS stick had about 360rwhp. With this kit it's about 460rwhp on the V6. Not many on the streets are pushing that out of a SS or any V8. Just freaks like us here on forums across the Internet. .

Yeah, and HP Turbine's car is an auto. If it was a manual it would be around 490 RWHP.

I didn't know that, but there's still the tuning issue

LLT has a Bosch ECU that is not used in many American cars or supported by common tuning systerms. The LFX has a different version ok the Delphi ECU used in most GM cars.

Support for the LLT should pick up as soon as the new GM V8's hit the market hard as they have Bosch ECU's now. Especially when the 6th gen hits with that same ECU.

IPS TWIN TURBO for the LLT

I haven't heard this rumor, but If it's true I would guess they would do it to make the cars harder to tune and mess with?

I am pretty sure the new Silverado and Stingray have the Delphi ECU. That doesn't mean the 6th Gen will, but I hope so.

I'm almost 100% positive the LT1 and the V8s in the Silverado trucks use Delphi ECUs. I haven't heard anything of them going back to Bosch.

IF it's true it's probably due to lower costs
