well since your saying the kb is better than the whipple can you please post links and info, and which of the superchargers are you comparing? i know i'm saving up for a whipple myself, but the final decision will come once texas speed does their test.

You guys are almost making me want to rule out my favorite one - the vortech.

I think I should mention that In less than a week I'll be installing JBA longtube headers, midpipes, and a catback exhaust. all from the JBA competition series.


Now, someone said a CAI wont work with a Kenne Bell... Well doesnt the Kenne Bell just come with its own intake, so it shouldnt matter anyway?

I'm leaning more to Kenne Bell than Whipple, but Vortech seems like it'd get me the most power, and I havnt heard many disadvantages yet except the lack of torque, and I guess it makes sense that that's necessary for a street car..


Should I just rule out the Vortech?

Nice. You back up your statements with facts very well. Good job mate..

Regardless, both are great blowers and I think either one at 9psi would have got me very close to the same number. Only difference between the 2 to me is aesthetics front mount vs rear, and a cooler intake charge using a true cold air intake like the ADM Race that the Whipple allows to be used being front mount TB. If the temp is lower coming into the intercooler the lower it will be after the intercooler imho, at least through the same blower/ intercooler setup.. I actually like the fact that KB offers a Liquid cooled housing(optional of course) and has the IAT post intercooler which is where it should be.
Go and read some of my posts about my build and build decisions and you will see KB came in a close second and was the only other blower I considered after much research.

I don't run or sell either kit so I have no bones to pick. Imagine if Number 9 ran a KB or Whipple. He would probably hit the 10's with 5 PSI because he is already in the 11's.
No doubt, I agree completely w/ your assertation.

All are good systems. Just depends on what YOU want. I learned ALOT just doing research on Camaro5.

I am a fan of centrifugal blowers (vortech in particular) because they tend to be easier on parts at a given boost level, because they don't make QUITE as much boost at low rpm. They are a little more involved on the install of course.

The centrifugal blower will have very "NA" like power delivery.. Makes "driving" it easier especially if you plan to do any track days etc

Vortech isnt going to strain your suspension parts as hard right off the line. Plus top end power should be higher on the Vortech versus the other two at the same boost.

the car is Sooo spin happy I think Vortech would (by dyno's i have seen)give ya more DD feel.

I was looking at some other post's and 500 hp at 3k RPM who out their could let their girl drive the car?

Mine girl has not driven it yet BUT .this weekend have a meeting 3.5 hr's away she wants to go. I want to drive the car.here is the catch. while i'm in the 8+hr meeting she wants to shop......do i let her drive it??? if it had the SC NO would have to be tha answer. vortech "maybe" hate to drive 7hrs in my truck when the camaro is right their. sorry for the rant but i was thinking maybe you guy's could relate.....

why not let her drive it? my buddy put a whipple on his l99 and is making 600+ rwhp, and its his wife's daily driver. its all on how they drive the car, if she is gonna get on it everytime from a stop then no i wouldn't let her but if she is going to drive it like normal then why not let her drive it.

Vortech is your Friend!! If I had to do it all over again I'd do it again with the Vortech.

Vortech Ftw!

I like the feel of power coming on strong as the RPM's build. The Vortech also saves my tire life.

This car is my daily driver, so my biggest concerns are engine life and traction(can be fixed with suspension, but i cant afford that for a while).

I'm really, really leaning for the Vortech because I dont plan to EVER go over 700HP, and the way it builds rpms seems like itd be best for daily driving, but I'll come to Camaro5 and see what you guys think.
Given your detailed description I would have to recommend the Vortech V3, It fits what you want best and I have installed and/or tuned all of the above.

It will be the Easiest on engine and drivetrain parts and easiest to manage traction with your right foot.

Don't take anything away from the V3 it will support 700 RWHP just in case later on you want to turn up the wick a bit.

The Vortech is easiest to Tame or get aggressive with the power just by swapping pulleys, there is a lot of Range in these Blowers.

The basic package will put an LS3 at 530 RWHP out of the Package, with my JRE Vortech Upgrade Package we consistantly see 600 RWHP + add a cam and your at 700 RWHP Pretty Darn Easy.

All the Blower Packages are Great These Days, That is What makes it so hard to Choose.

We have to be good listeners of our customers description to make the right Recommendation.

Ted.
