IPF Supercharger round 2 : turnup the boost

Hey everyone I'm making this post to track my build and install of my new IPF supercharger and it's coming mods.

First the back story I've had my 2011 full bolt on and tuned LLT for about 2 years before I decided to buy a used low mileage IPF kit from a member on the form for 4k with tune. I loved being on boost but I had no idea I would encounter so many problems because of lack of experience on my part. During the install I broke my power steering pump, causing me over a 1000 in repairs. Next my fake cats went bad and had to be straight piped more money. Next my x pipe had to be replaced because a baffle blew out. Lastly the engine lost oil from a front engine cover leak and it seized up while in the possession of the dealership. I had To buy a new LLT and have my old one replaced.

Now I'm ready for round 2 brand new IPF LLT KIT with tune and trans tune.
Mods order
MM catch can system redo
Boost Gague
AFR wideband
Denso ITV24
IAT relocation

Mods soon to come
Snow meth kit
3.33 pulley change
HP tune

Mods currently on car
Ported throttle body
Ported intake manifold stage 3
OBX careless long tube headers lol catless auto correct
ZL1 front end
Full exhaust with res x pipe
Weight reduction as follows
Spare wheel and change kit -50
Rear.... -27
Washer bottle delete -3
-25 forged wheels
So about -105 from stock

The kit will be here Tuesday looking forward to putting up my install pics Wednesday

Wouldn't get too greedy with the boost right off the bat, you need to make sure your engine is handling stock boost with no knock retard first. Finding a good gas station is the most important thing, I go to one gas station only now since all others caused 10 degrees of knock retard and this one has 0 degrees.

Also at 14 psi of boost you will want to have the Snow Performance Safe Injection Module with a By-Pass Valve solenoid. If the meth goes out you will be running well over 14:1 AFR, 13:1 is a good safe spot for our engines.

Holy crap...did you say you bought a new LLT? Motor or car?

I love my V6 but I would have just traded up at that point. lol

All that stuff looks familiar.

When you do the IAT make sure to seal it up as best you can with RTV. I just bought a screw in type IAT, my push in type keeps pissing meth out of it.
