I completely abandoned my own build thread...what is wrong with me?

The last time I posted here I was headed for the track. Well...I ran into a bit of a problem on my first and only pass. The car was pulling hard, (thanks to the Whipple and a small 250 shot) when I heard a funky pop. I got out of it immediately, as the car was making some weird grinding noise. Come to find out the Whipple housing had actually cracked and lifted the housing!

ARD pulled the blower and sent it to Whipple to check out. They said they'd never seen this happen, and couldn't figure out why it came apart. They rebuilt it, and shipped it back. It seems to be doing fine now, and felt great yesterday on the Bayou City Chicken Run.

I still have a few things I'm wanting to do, so I'll jump back in here and post an update when I can.

Geeze!! Glad it doesnt sound like anything else was broken as a result.

Out of curiosity, did Whipple rebuild it as a warranty job?

No, but I've had it for over three years, and put thousands of miles on it. They did work with me on the cost though.

Thanks Pete. I've been around, just not in my own thread.

Pretty weird that whipple's never had that happen. I'm curious to see if the COPOs have this issue a few years down the road.

Welcome back Russ!

Yea...we don't know what happened, but remember that the COPOs have a larger Whipple (3.4 vs 2.9).
