If you look at the V6's that had his "turn key" SC and TT kits, they never ran right, used cheap quality parts (also used parts returned from a kit, then were given to another kit as "new") and parts that just failed, i.e. tensioner bracket and rx chiller (that is a knock off of the real chiller from Trekgto).

There are quite a few threads on the above, some on V8 builds and catch cans but just plain rude and disgusting customer service. I would look at those.

Before I bought my camaro about 2 years ago he talke to me through email about his forced induction options and kinda put down the competition I guess that shoulda been a red flag. When I did buy my camaro and logged into camaro 5 I saw he was suspended and vastly disliked. So needless to say wen the time comes ipf will get my money as long as they're customer service before,during, and after te install is top notch.

yeah he has also "produced" cheap knock off kits of the IPF kit too and over in china. When you have the funds to do the IPF kit, do it. I love my kit, quality is second to none.

So guys you probably don't want to hear this but tracy did it. He kept his word, came through, and fixed my car.
He came to me to change out the scavage pump, cleaned out all the oil, and adjusted a few things. You guys might say why didn't I just bring it somewhere because that's an easy fix but why should I pay the money you know? It's honestly not really about the money either, it's more of me finding out if he would keep his word and he did.

Tracy might have made some mistakes in the past, wether from him messing up, his employees messing up, or his customer service. Whatever it is tracy and his crew helped me out and as far as right now the car is running good. I've driven it 40-50 miles so far and it feels great.

I will be in touch however, I will drive the car for another 200-300 miles take out the charge pipes and clean out what ever residue that might be left and then I will update again.

Also Tracy was logging the car and showed me that he actually did tune the car.

Hope it all works out well for you bud, and I agree you shouldn't have to take your car somewhere else for something another shop messed up on. They should rectify the problem fast, free, go beyond and above to prove they want your business again, and deliver the results you wanted. Hopefully Tracey and Rx performance did this for you. However if it doesn't well a lot of members will be saying I told you so.

Also the reason why I was not building boost in 1st and 2nd was because the waste gate was clogged, it just needed cleaning. He also fixed that issue while he was down here so now my car gets 4-5 pounds in 1st, 5-6 in 2nd, and 6-8 in 3rd, 4th 5th full boost at WOT

I don't think so. I've always been optimistic about the RX SC. I got my system used from V6Owner. I beleve it had all the current updates to make it a sound system and so far I've been pleased.

The tune is the only current downside. Trifecta's tune was not effective.
I think the only way to get it done properly is to have it done by a pro-shop like a Livernois.

If you've followed my build, (Erick's Mistress Getting RX Supercharged) I left it all in the hands of a good shop for the actual installation. (I'm no mechanic) Vision Tire and Auto did some tweeks but overall, they said the system went together well. They also got some good support from Tracy.

I ran the system for over a year with the trifecta tune without any issues except for un-optimized power. Now with the Livernois tune, I continue to feel very optimistic about the RX SC system. Even though the sytem is second hand, Tracy has been helpful.

It's been a big investment for the system, intsallation and the tune, but it's also been exciting to what can be done with some expert help, including the information on the forum.

Not trying to rain on your glory Peter but... You may need some more tweets. You should be able to build full boost in all gears at WOT. Not some in each gear then all out in the high gears.

That's right yours is an RX SC too, hopefully Tracey is turning it all around! What ever happened to that roots system he was developing? Lol
