Whipple 2.9L SC coming soon

Hey all, I contacted whipple a few days ago asking if they were going to make a S/C for the 2010 camaro and they said yes. they already have the manifold ready, they are working on the top s/c unit as its going to be unique to the camaro. its going to be a 2.9L this thing is gonna be a beast.

heres the e-mail i got from Dustin Whipple

"Eddie,

Yes, its based on our 2.9L supercharger and were currently working on it. Manifold is done, but were working on a integral upper half that will be very unique.

Thanks,

Dustin

Whipple Superchargers"

Typically the Whipple is a little quieter than the Kenne Bell. I'm sure KB will come out with a kit as well though

The only issue with this and other big nasty blowers is to really take advantage you have to have a built short block...I mean why spend the "extra" $$ on a killer blower when you are only gonna tap 1/3 or 1/2 of its capability? I guess if your buying for the future expansion, and your gonna build a short block later that's OK, but alot of guys will never get around to it and end up selling the blower after blowing up the shortblock.

Should make for a nasty combo, just be careful pushing the boost.

i'd rather have a blower that i know is capable of more power then one that is maxed out cuz its to small. that way you can always plan for the future even if it doesnt pan out, u still know u have a blower capable of more.

A supercharger is like allot like a turbo. A properly sized supercharger for the HP goal and motor size will ALWAYS be faster and quicker than a BIG supercharger that needs to spin up.
