Torq's latest Whipple Supercharger build, big power inside!

We just delivered our latest supercharged Camaro build and thought I would share some pictures and a video!

Marvin came to us with his spanking new 2010 2SS Camaro M6 straight from the dealer, he had only 69 miles on the clock when he fist showed up! Being a huge muscle car fan, he wanted a Camaro that would reminiscence the old school era with looks and sound, but with the power and driveability of a brand new car.

Showroom new!




We put together a package for him that suited his goals, and just a few days later got started with the build. For Stage 1 of this project, Marvin wanted at least 550-560rwhp, some suspension to get the power to the ground and of course some appearance mods to complete the package.

Project has started!



To reach his power goals we went with the following:
  • Camaro SS Whipple 2.9L Supercharger Kit
  • Camaro SS Kooks Custom Headers w/ Catted Connection Pipes
  • Camaro SS MBRP 3" Cat-back Exhaust

The awesome Whipple 2.9L Supercharger fits just perfect in there




We knew that these parts together would be plenty sufficient to reach his current goals, and also work great with his future plans as well. Details about that will come later!

To transform the Camaro into a Corner Carving beast and to help get all the newly found power to the ground we went to our good friends over at Pfadt Race Engineering. We have had awesome success with their parts and we can stand behind their product 100%!

Seeing that this is a pure street car, we wanted to add a little more responsiveness, feel and great handling without compromising the comfort and reliability of the great car GM created. To achieve that we put together the following package:

  • Camaro SS Pfadt Lowering Springs
  • Camaro SS Pfadt Adjustable Sport Sway Bars
  • Camaro SS Pfadt Adjustable Tie Rods
  • Camaro SS Pfadt Rear Trailing Arms
  • Camaro SS MGW Short Throw Shifter


A perfect stance is always a perfect stance




Last but not least we added our custom Black-Out kit that includes tinted tail lights, side markers and satin black tail-light bezels. And just to add that little extra to her we did a custom vinyl black out panel as well. The black offsets the red in such a perfect way, she tuned out great!







When the Custom Dyno Tuning was all said and done, our goals were reached and also exceeded! As they say, a picture can say more then a thousand words, so can a dyno graph! The outcome was 576RWHP/510RWTQ on our Mustangdyno with a very streetable power curve, just as the doctor ordered





Marvin will be back next week so we can mount his Custom made rims that should be arriving, as well as a very decent brake upgrade. This car is one mean machine and once those wheels and brakes are on it will look the part as well!

Here is a quick video we put together of the project, turn up the volume and enjoy the music of the LS3 and Whipple scream!

Thansk guys! As you can imagine Marvin was totally "blown" away with the found power! Going from bone stock with only a few miles on the clock, to this 650hp beast in just a matter of days is quite an experience.

Stay tuned for photos once we get the new wheels on, they are going to be so sick looking and really stand out.

The stock pulley from Whipple, boost was pretty much where we wanted it to be with the Whipple tube and stock airbox!

I tuned a 2.9 Whipple car, and I have to say... I love that supercharger. The way it makes power is PERFECT for a street car! 627/550 is what it made, and the owner almost wanted it pullied up to make less boost because he wasn't used to it! Nice build. That rear blackout looks great.

Why a Whipple and not a Magnuson or ProCharger.

A few reasons! First, the customer requested it which is one quite important reason. The Whipple is also 2.9L vs. 2.3L for the Magnusson, and more street friendly compared to the Procharger. The Procharger is an awesome system and makes sick power, but the torque down low that you get with a positive displacement blower is just insane. The customer never races the car and it is pure street car and he really likes this style blower.

We have installed them all, Whipple, Magnusson, Vortech, Kenne Bell etc and each one has it's benefits! We will be doing another Whipple next week and after that a 2.8L Liquid Cooled Kenne Bell with a cam is on the schedule!

Thanks guys, we are also very happy with the outcome!

Pictures Look great! I also like the rear black out panel. So what is the Peak boost you see with the Whipple? Curious how the long tubes and big 3 inch exhaust affected the boost. What power it put down with the Whipple tune?

We have done a lot of Maggy setups and wanted to try the whipple as we use them almost exclusively on our Ford builds. Amazing quality, amazing fit and finish including hoses, fittings, etc are top notch. It is a bigger, more efficient blower.

Why we did not go with a Centrifugal blower - Simple. A roots/twin screw is way more fun for a street car.

Peak boost we saw, with the cut airbox (per Whipple's instructions) was a tick under 9psi. We typically do not see much of a pressure drop with the 1 7/8" headers and 3" exhaust.

Torq Dyno Results with Whipple Tune:

VEHICLE: 2010 6.2L
Manual Boost PSI: 8.7psi
Average AF: 11.9:1
RPM Limit: Stock
Exhaust: Kooks 1 7/8" Long Tubes w/ Catted X and MBRP Catback
Fuel: 93 octane
Temperature: 76.31° F
Barometric PSI: 29.98 In-Hg
Humidity: 45%
Hood: Open
SC RW SAE HP: 531
SC RW SAE TRQ: 487
Stock RW SAE HP: 355
Stock RW SAE TRQ: 342

We test every product we sell and provide our honest feedback. After installing Whipple's 2.9L supercharger on our customers 2010 Camaro SS with Whipple's tune we picked up a fantastic 177RWHP and 145RWTQ but were concerned with the amount of Knock Retard we were seeing both on the street and in our controlled dyno room.

We reset the ECM back to a factory stock calibration and began the calibration process. The final results with less timing and zero KR and a safer air fuel ratio were amazing. We picked up an additional 45RWHP and 23RWTQ! In addition to the WOT power and torque increases our tune provides additional throttle response and improved fuel economy and drive-ability.

Hahaha..... that's obvious, but 2.3 or 2.9 get a different pulley or cog unit to produce more boost depending on your application. So, a 2.3 maggie or any procharger would have most likely been adequate.

For example to produce the numbers on this setup, they used almost 9psi., there are numerous setups using 6psi. with a ProCharger and getting same results.

So, if we were talking $, I'd say 2.9, but we're talking SC's so 2.3 or 2.9 probably not making much of a difference unless you engine has been heavily modified, and in that case you'd probably want a ProCharger F-1 or higher.

That's what I'm planning as well (SC with my blower cam) but I'm leaning towards the ProCharger D-1SC, I've seen a HO P-1 system, with stock fuel pump making 640rwhp / 450 - 560rwtq on 6psi., and a custom tune.

We compared a Maggy at the same boost level and same exhaust and the Whipple made about 27rwhp more with cooler IAT's.
