Default X-Charger Discussion Thread

I see that quite a few people here have the X-Charger, so I am opening this thread so that existing users can post their experiences with the unit, and so that people considering it can ask questions. As people ask questions, those of you currently running the x-charger are encouraged to lend some advice as needed!

Great idea! I'll start it off by telling a little about my experience with the X:

I bought mine on the first GB earlier this year and did the install at Afixer's house in the infamous "Group Install". We had Dave and Patty from Explorer Express (the maker of the kit), Doug from B A M A for the tuning, and a bunch of guys who wanted to help and learn. The installation of the X is as easy as any FI that I personally have heard of; many people who are not mechanics have done the install with no help at all! The driving experience of the X is incredible, the low end torque is awesome and the power comes on instantaniuosly. For a daily driver it's perfect; you can stay out of boost and drive normal all day, or you can nail the gas and get on demand power. It's a perfect kit for the guy or gal who want's an all around driver; you can't beat it foe open track or autoX and it does very well on the 1/4 mile. Now if you're looking for the ultimate power machine for the strip you will probably want to go turbo, but if your track experience is like most you don't go very often. If you are into bracket racing an auto trans and an X are a killer comco. I couldn't be happier with my car with the X. If you have any questions post em here and I or one of the other X men will be glad to help.
PS the last GB was limited to 18 units and sold out in about two weeks; once 2 or 3 people commit the flood gates open up!

I've only run it once at an 1/8th mile track, went 9 seconds at 78 with a 1.9 60'. I'm obviously not a drag racer and I'm not set up for it, I have stock Pirelli tires and at the time had the stock LCA's. I like it and will get out again to get some practice and hopefully improve.

with an autotrans?
Yea, Ron (Navbtcret) is an auto. I think at that time, he had 3.73's, LCA's and Mt ET streets on stock 17 inch bullits.

Is there anyone with an X-charger in or near southeast Michigan? I'd like to take a look at one installed and spend some time talking with you.
