    We can do custom applications for most anything w/and engine and wheels.....tuning may be a challenge with some non common ECU's. But for any V8 we do any SC or turbo for.

    We have a ton of trucks used to tow we do liquid to air intercooled FI and our RX Super Chiller on.

    Awesome job! All this in a wagon would be the ultimate sleeper for me!

    Any numbers for this build, like Dyno before and after? Or 1/4 mile times?

    How about the sound or noise? I love a nice supercharger whine, but it might get old on a daily driver. Any comments on how this one sounded?

    Any problem with traction? AWD would certainly help, what tires/wheels are on it?

    Have several of these in AWD and zero traction issues. The AWD dyno wont be here for another 2-3 weeks so no dyno on this one. Others are making around 400 whp and 1/4 mile ET's as quick as 12.9's but most low 13's.

    Here are some videos of ones that customers have posted (camaros for the most part):

    You mentioned earlier about using a 3600 stall. That might be kinda high for me, with a daily driver that sees bumper to bumper traffic. How would this setup work with a lower stall TC, or even the stock one? I don't even know what the stock stall RPM is. Would a twin turbo be better?

    Trying to justify a V6 purchase to all my V8 friends...

    Left a message at your company voicemail over a week ago, still haven't gotten a response. Among other things, I'm curious as to what type of timeframe I should anticipate from car drop-off to pick-up?

    So what sort of tune was done? With a 65% horsepower bump I'd want a good dyno tune, particularly if I was spending good money.

    Maybe some on here with the build/3600 stall can chime in. You will not know it is anything but stock iduring normal driving, only when you put your foot in it will the stall be apparant. Same at highway speeds as it locks up as stock.

    Email direct: RXProducts@aol.com

    I have been out sick for a week and am in for 1/2 day today and totally beat, but someone will reply.

    The tune is a custom tune done by Trifecta. We have somewhere around 40 of these around the world so the tune is pretty dang good.

    My appologies for being our sick....this flu has slammed me.

    3600 stall is perfect (these are custom built, not restalled OEM weak ones) You wont notice it when driving easy, but put your foot in it and it is unreal. Highway lockup like stock as well.

    Jeremy, Will try to get you coming down ASAP.

    AWD dyno will be here April 8 so yes, dyno tuned. DMCEDDoc can attest, the tune takes several days.

    We dont have slots open until may (16 cars in right now) but call to schedule and make down payment to secure slot.

    We need car app 2-3 weeks as we have to drive for 4-5 days to make sure no issues pop up...and delays happen beyond our control (3 techs out sick right now) off and on past 3 weeks and I am still fighting something for app 3 weeks now.

    He cant drive it w/out WOT, but we have plenty others getting 25-28 mpg on the interstate at 70-75mph on cruise control.

    LOL!

    I get 20-22 MPG highway driving @ 80 MPH.

    I was producing 10# boost with my original crank pulley. It has since broken. I replaced it with the next largest pulley they make and it only produces 7# boost. SIGNIFICANTLY SLOWER!!!

    I no longer am able to run with stock Mustangs and Camaros. My girl's tuned SHO makes my car look slow now. I'm going to have to purchase a smaller supercharger pulley to get back to where I was before the crank pulley snout broke.

    Re: AWD CTS 3.6 build thread......the works!!

    I have a 2008 Cts RWD. 3.6L V6. I live in TX and its my primary transportation, so unfortuantly I cant send it off to get work on. But if i wanted to get the max amount of HP possible out of my little beauty, what parts do I need to buy and install? And what would be the ending HP estimate. I dont know much about cars so I would appreciate all the help I can get.
