So I finally got my Paxton Novi 2200 on Friday. It came with ID1000 injectors, a Vortech specific BAP, and a 3.4" pulley, along with remote tuning by Ken at Lund. It took my dad and I pretty much all weekend to install. Good news for '13 owners is that there is no cutting of the front bumper required. It's running now but is throwing P2196 and P2198 codes so I haven't really driven it much. I'm confident that issue will be fixed soon so I'll have my impressions on how it runs then. For now here are a few pics of the install. I planned on taking more but forgot when I was in the zone. Sorry for the poor quality iPhone pics. I'll get better ones soon.

I'm sure it didn't take much convincing, I know it didnt for me, I also looked at other cars with the Paxton and had to have it! I think you will make around 660-680rwhp. With the cooler weather, I need to invest in some drag radials, 1st and 2nd are pretty useless, but the car sure is fun and the power is scary and amazing at the same time.

Haha so you didn't really have to twist my arm. Honestly, it just took one look of your dyno graph in addition to you saying it still drives like stock at lower RPMs and I was sold.

Yeah I think my next big purchase will be some Welds or Race Stars and Mickey Thompson E/T Streets. Ahh I can't wait to be scared and amazed at the same time!

Probably not for two weeks. Looking at header wrap for a little project while I wait for a free Saturday.
A free Saturday?!:worship Haha that would take me all weekend too. I had so much trouble doing the cat deletes on my '11 that I couldn't believe you swapped them on for a track day!

Yeah it came with the intercooler. No cutting of the bumper. Extensive cutting of the fan shroud, radiator side shrouds, lower air dam(under engine), and a bunch of hoses.

It's not to sound like I'm a badass tech but rather I have no choice if I am going to use my shop. Hours are 8am to 4pm and the car has to be out by then.

Regarding those cat delete pipes, Ken's muscle was the big help there!:worship
