More Whipple 2.9L Exclusive Photo's and Update!

Just received an email from Dustin with some new photos and a brief update on the 2.9L kit for the 2010+ Camaro.

The good news is that these are the final CAD images. The kits are now in production. The inlets and manifolds are being cast and all of the other billet parts are being machined. We're hoping to release pricing soon.

For now here's a few pics brought to you exclusively by Lethal Performance!







Lastly,

Check out the new Whipple 3.4L Crusher Kit we just put in our 2010 GT500.

I'm definitely keeping an eye out for this supercharger. I hope this blower whines ALLOT!!!

If not I'll be sticking with my original plan and getting a Procharger.

we need a smiley of happy face humping a leg lol. freakin awesome. i'm sure once this kit is designed all u would need is to just make the manifold for the f-body tuner kit since it's utilizing same blower and jackshaft.

Will this be an arbitrary $6999, $7999 or $8999? Sorry to sound negative but it seems like all the turbo's, SC's etc., pick a damn near random price point and go with it. I can't afford a $9k add-on so that just increases my jealousy

with forced induction when u account for tuning, install, most likely exhaust it typically does get close to then 10k range. a properly done FI setup. cuz u figure ur gonna add headers and exhaust to make it sound nice. possibly clutch upgrade too.

Exactly! With all that new power, you'll need better clutch and tires. I'll say $14K! Been there...

do the whipples have a "audible" whine at idle like the Prochargers do or just under accleration?

It will be very competitive to Magnusson's kit.

Does this mean that we can also expect a 3.4L for the LS engies too (if I read correctly in between the marketing suggestion line?????

Is a 3.4 planned or a 4.0? I really just want a solid 800 to the wheels on pump gas so I don't think I would need bigger than a 2.9 but I am curious.

Does it use the factory TB, and can it accept the new FAST 102mm TB?

I ask this because I know how much the "crusher" inlet and 160mm monoblade TB helped out the Whipple 3.4L when compare to the stock inlet and TB on the GT500's. +50whp easy

The stock inlet and TB on this camaro package look tiny compared to the crusher and monoblade. I know from experience that you dont want any sort of bottleneck before the supercharger.

Will you be offering larger inlets and or TB?

Thanks

I look forward to the 3.4L or even 4.0L in the future for LS3 apps.

I don't believe either the 3.4L or 4.0L are planned for the Camaro at this time.

The Camaro kit uses the stock throttle body. So if the FAST 102 is a direct bolt on for the stock intake then it should bolt up to the 2.9L in the same way. As far as us offering a crusher for the Camaro I don't believe so. Reason being that there's already a very short distance from the TB to the supercharger inlet on the 2.9L for the camaro. On vehicles such as the Cobra there's quite a bit of space between the TB and the supercharger inlet as well as a big bend. In an application like that a larger diameter plenum with less bends help flow more air but since the camaro kit doesn't have that there's really no room for improvement.

Now as far as an upgraded Monoblade TB from Whipple I'm sure that's something that we may see in the near future but I haven't heard of anything in the works just yet.

Lethal Performance will be offering an introductory price to the members of Camaro5 as soon as pricing is finalized. As soon as I get word I'll post up.

Thanks, Jared
