Whipple capable of 550whp on stock internals?

I'm reading about the 2.9L Whipple S/C and it says it can push 550-600whp on a stock LS3 motor. The kit comes with upgraded injectors and i guess a fuel rail/fuel rail mod of some kind, but it clearly says those HP numbers can be attained on a completely stock LS3, has anyone on here achieved these kind of numbers on a stock motor, and if so, was it reliable? Did any parts break as a result? J/W, all these folks get all kinds of engine parts w/o a S/C and only get around 450whp, seems like getting a whipple would give me everything I want without having to install all kinds of other parts.

I think 550whp is like the minimum most supercharged cars put out. Theres N/A cam cars out there that are over 500whp. Not sure where you have seen 450whp supercharged cars, unless they're pushing 5psi or something. 600whp is easily obtainable on a stock engine with S/C.

Yes it is possible if you get a custom tune and not the canned tune from whipple.

Check again. A maggie on an auto car will do 450-470 and 490-500 on a stock car. Whipple just a bit more. Now if you add headers, custom tune, pulley down, etc the numbers go way up but bone stock with the supplied calibration I don't think any of them do 550rwhp.

Yeah..auto cars...tranny eats up power but at the drag strip it won't look that way. Op has a manual...I'd bet low 5s out the box depending on your dyno. And if you don't know, dynos may swing 50whp themselves one to another.

Blower kit, headers, CAI, custom tune and you will be pushing 600 rwhp with a manual.

The stock internals can handle all the power that would be usable on the street.

Yes, your LS3 can easily obtain 550 plus HP, by bolting on a Whipple / Kit.

Longevity of your engine will not necessarily be adversley affected, based of course on how you use and drive the car.

How your bottom end last is highly dependent on the fuel system and tune. I have an L99 with 850 RWHP and it is set right around 700 RWHP for the street and it is my daily driver on a stock bottom end. But at the end of the day we all know forged is the way to go, and eventually is inevitable.

wurrrrd. thanks guys. I'ma have to stack my pennies for a little while anyways if i want this. My dealer is willing to honor my warranty as long as they install the blower, so it's def got a good outlook.

When I first started the mods I had a maggie kit (5.5lbs boost), SLP catback and Roto-fab with a dyno-tune and I was putting down 521rwhp. The internals were stock and the and the fuel pump was stock. On an LS3 with 10 or 11 lbs boost you can achieve the 600hp level but you will need to go with bigger injectors than the Whipple kit comes with and a ZL1 fuel pump or a BAP at minimum.

correct...but you need the ADM fpcm and then the kit of your choice. Talk to andy at ADM...he will steer you straight on the fpcm.

I assumed all supporting mods were a given. He said a stock LS3 engine. I was going with stock internals and such, wasnt talking about a 100% bone stock car. Good call though.....

I read similar claims from mutiple vendors ...530 RWHP on a Stock L99

However , my suggestion is to contact Whipple direct,
what I was told 18 months ago by the Whipple Rep was 440-460 on an L99
and 490-510 on a LS3 .

Before headers I was at 456 ...From a reputable installer.
After Headers and a Pulley change I am at 505 and 8-9 lbs boost.

I ended up with the new style SLP TVS2300. They offered a 3 year 36K powertrain warranty with the blower drop on only. I was tossing between the whipple and TVS. Kinda wish i went whipple cause its a bigger supercharger but i got the cheaper one and had the warranty.

In the end my LS3 with the SLP TVS2300 drop on only (no headers, no cai ect) supercharger only with canned SLP tune, made 502 RWHP.

So with the drop on Whipple only i would imagine you would be right at that 550RWhp mark, esspecially with a custom tune, Add headers CAI and fuel work and youll be over 600rwhp.

My goals are to pay off what i have, then add JRE Cam, headers, CAI, bigger injectors, smaller pulley, custom tune and should be in the ballpark of 675RHWP

I've been at least 630RWHP for the last 2 years with a Whipple. I recently added 102mm TB and meth and now making 677RWHP. I know it wasn't the most reliable power level so I order one of these bad boys.

Not sure how many Benjamin's it cost ya with SLP, but I was approached by SLP to do exact setup you have..I had more miles on mine at 16,000 and they wanted a large amount of money for the conversion without placing other items.
I have an L99 but looking at doing the LS3 conversion with Whipple which would be nearing 700 hp. I already have CAI, Headers and Long tubes. Turn key would be less than 12,000.

I have the L99 currently with Headers, Long Tubes, CAI and Tune. Here is my sheet below...

I was told if doing Whipple only along with current mods it would near 500 HP but doing the LS3 conversion with Whipple would put well over 600 HP
