Wonder what company they are using for the blowers.
If they could fabricate low engine mounts to drop the motor to fit under the stock hood they'd be golden!

i hate the side mount blowers so i would much prefer the root style. Not happy that the company doesnt have a good rep, ive read most of the threads about their problems.

True their past rep will probably hurt them. While it is difficult a company CAN be turned around. We'll just have to wait and see!

Tracy was not banned, he dropped as a supporting vendor and the account is suspended as you cannot just be a member after dropping as a vendor.

The reason was the hostility allowed by a few other vendors and the drama was not worth it. Only a small handful on the site have attacked him and they are all promoters of a direct competitor....do a search and find 2 plus years with nothing but praise on this site until the competitor got involved. Look at his itrader rating:

The company that acquired all products is a Aerospace contractor that designs electronic for the Global Hawk, Abrams, and other high tech military vehicles, so quality is second to none. They also design complete aircraft and their automotive division does high end magnetic ride suspension components and other products. Here is their info if anyone questions the quality and resources behind this: www.aircraftinstruments.com

The head units are Eaton units, 100,000 miles before needing lube change. 3 prtototypes have been out there and one has over 36,000 trouble free miles, one is the one in Tampa Tunings video, and one is in Texas. 2 LLT's and 1 LFX.

The blower suffers no ill affects from the weather exposed, and the COPO style hood is app. $500 if it is desired over the exposed unit.

Good info thanks man! Anyone have info on price? I think Tampa tuning is supposed to release dyno numbers soon. Would love to hear more about the LFX application as well as what HP tuners could do with it.

Last I heard the price was $6900 straight from the horse's mouth.

I've heard this a couple times, but seems questionable... I've stopped paying and dropped vendor status 2, maybe 3 times that I can remember, and once was for several months (testing to see if I even got any extra business from the website or if I was just wasting my money.)... My account was never suspended for not being a paying vendor after I had already been one.

That said, it really is a shame it can't be packaged under the hood otherwise it would probably sell like hotcakes. No room in the 60 degree v6 to drop the blower down lower. Looking at the pictures, you couldn't even drop the engine enough to get it to fit under the hood. Tracy's postings on other various forums of FI builds he's doing these days are looking pretty nice.

Technically, I am also a dealer, but I've never had my hands on the kit. The new billet pieces look very nice.

You'd have to get me another v6 car while you're at it I got my old 2010 SS back. I still have the complete LFX engine sitting here though... Throw the roots kit on it, and slap in in a rat rod... I'm down.

Tracy WAS in fact banned. Still owes me money too.
