Well guys went to the track tonight hoping to break 12s with my Rx supercharger kit with 9 psi pulley, fti torque converter, obx long tube headers, custom magnaflow exhaust, vmax ported throttle body, iceolater, plenum spacer. Oh btw I have rs wheels with pzeros. Keep in mind. I hooked all three runs I'm referring to.

Now.. This guy comes up to me and asks how I got my v6 into the xx's. so I show him and he says turn it off and follow me. So I walk over to a white camaro and says this is me. Open the hood. Low and behold. What are te odds. It's an IPF kit. I don't have the time slips of his but I know all his 60' times were .1-.2 slower. Also. He had steel wheels and ls tires. Both automatic.

But here's the 14 ETs. (79 degree weather Bradenton motorsports FL) all within an hour.

MrGood IPF kit
13.68 13.08
13.77 13.14
14.02 13.20

I was really hoping to break 12s. Needless to say tonight was disappointing. But at least I ate a GT.

keep practicing and the times will improve I bet. Was it your first time out with the setup? If so, play with tire pressures, launch rpms, etc. and see where the sweet spot is for your setup. ;)

The launch was fine. Hooked with no wheel spin. It was taking off hard. It just wouldn't pull. Tracy thinks it might be because it was too rich so we will see.

Good Luck, Keep us posted. I think Tracy is right once you get the fuel issue dialed in hopefully that cleans it up.

To clear this up this is not a slam. Why would I slam the place I've spent $9,500. Also. Tracy says the guy is hiding a bottle of nitrous in his car. Will see soon.

Sounds exactly like my issue when I had the OD pulley. It pulled real hard down low but then in the higher rpm band it felt dead, which is the exact opposite of what a centrifugal supercharger should do. I went to the track and ran 13.7x took data logs of my runs and e-mailed Vince. He said the fuel pump could not keep up. Needless to say I am back on the stock pulley. Actually my car is down at Rx right now to get everthing perfect before the Camaro Nationals here in Texas.


I doubt the guy is spraying, it has been shown several times that IPF runs consistently 13.1 - 13.4
