Getting whippled!
 
Just after finishing my jre rough idle cam install, it has come up that I'm getting a whipple supercharger:). I previously had an estimate from Ted on a street brawler package but at the time I only had cash flow for the cam kit. Well yesterday I chatted with Ted and ordered the rest of the items off the estimate. He figures with the 91 oct I should get to around 630-650 rwhp.
I'm so stoked, can't wait for it to come in and get to install it.

I would say that's a good estimate. Mine made 656 with a similar combination. The wait sucks, but your going to love it.

Over this winter I did:
Jre rough idle with valve train upgrades
Oem 3.91s with jre posi mod
Catch can
Kooks 1-7/8 long tubes with 3" xpipe, no cats out to kooks mufflers
Bmr diff bushings,
Finally installed front sway bar (have a pfadt stage 3 kit. I installed last year)
Now the whipple and supporting fuel mods :) be a different machine!

Nice! The 3:91's alone will wake these babies up! Nice torque!

Not sure if Davenport will touch it, being JRE sold it????:iono:

That would be bad business if davenport turned away tuning business just because some one else sold it.
They should just be happy they have business coming in.

I don't see why Davenport wouldn't tune the car. Like you said it should not matter on whom you bought the parts from if you are paying them for the tuning.

fshog is right. We tried working with Ted when Davenport put in my new motor and Ted had built my transmission. There were problems with Davenport using hp tuners and Ted using SCT. The two shops worked very well and very hard together but the tuning language barrier between softwares was tough to overcome.

I would say if you bought the parts from Ted and installed them your best to go with his remote tune. (You know it will be good)...

If you want a dyno number, try to get in on one of those dyno days that get set up around the province every once in a while.

well everything should be here tomorrow and i can not wait!. i downloaded and printed the instructions to the LPE dual fuel pump install while at work to preread what needed to be done haha. so today i went out and removed the fuel tank to make it ready for lpe installl. I also removed the front bumper again, to allow install of the rad for the blower. i cancel my OT at work tomorrow so i can be home when it gets here and will start install asap! now my only thoughts are on the clutch. i have stock right now, and will only be at the track once this year maybe 5 runs, only got 3 in last time. and then again when i head to cfest. wonder if it will hold up or not. maybe ill jst do the camarocross at cfest.

oh and PS if your ever removing the fuel tank... just drop the rear subframe, waaay easier with it out. i had a hard enough time with just my diff out, no idea how i would have disconnect the evap vent lines with the diff in.

i will keep you all updated on this :)

LS7 427 02-19-2013 06:25 PM

Might be a good idea to go to Cfest with the stock clutch and see what the vendors there have and what other C5 guys have been happy with and make your choice from there. Sound like its gonna be a fun project. Looking forward to the updates...:)

Have you been doing all this work yourself Caswell? With all that you've done, the car must feel like a different beast already! LOL

You get that Supercharger on there...and hang on!
