Sorry but you're wrong. The beauty of a larger SC is more power at the same boost.

If you swapped out the Whipple 2.9L for their 3.4L you would see about a +25whp difference at 8psi. This is why I'm going big, I want to keep the boost as low as I can and still make BIG power.

Not argueing your point, just wondering why that would be. I would think both chargers would be pretty effecient at low boost levels. I know the smaller charger would run into heat problems at higher boost levels, but both chargers being discussed are capable of way more. Seems like the bigger one would take more power to turn

verry true, but at low boost levels there's not much of a difference, the smaller s/c will typicaly show more tq. even whipple claims the 2.3 tvs will show more power at lower boost levels. but as u can already see 8 psi the 2.9 whipple is already taking over, as its matching / beating the tvs 2.3 with full bolt ons, and the whipple'd car is bone stock.

not exactly bro.. my cobra was faster at 19lbs w/ whipple 2.3 vs the whipple 3.4 at 19lbs. the 3.4 was sluggish at that level very sluggish!!! it didnt shine til 20+++ ibs which thats what it was made for and it really turned up. a smaller blower at lower boost levels 8 or less will respond and be faster than a larger blower sorry... but im comparing whipple vs whipple im unsure comparing maggie to whipple..

sorry i'm kind of biased toward whipple..

question does the whipple have another belt in back or is that gears?

Your point is 100% accurate! In fact you'll get a better result from TVS1900 v.s. TVS2300 v.s Whipple 2.9 in 6lb boost. Unless you have a forged bottom, you better off with smaller blower with better response!

yea theres been alotta debate on these meth/alky kits as well. you may wanna talk to ur tuner. alotta people say you need to plumb it in lower intake to see benefits with these style blowers vs. a centri or turbo who see results by runnin it after the maf.

i got it on my SRT (no maf has a MAP) love it..
was told with twin screws you can run before supercharger but to really see cooling benefit needs to be after supercharger.. so i think i'm going to look into direct injection meth.. just need more nozzles..
