Will Whipple produce a kit for the V6?

Looking at the whipple supercharger kits and wanted to know if they will offer one for the V6? If not does anyone know of anykits coming out soon?

I cant stand everyone that wants a supercharger for a v-6. Should have just bought the SS if you wanted performance. You want them to make a supercharger for your moms buick too?

LMAO! iam sure I have built many many more cars than yourself. Seriously, is the camaro a performace car?? Look at the corvette, no V6 offered there. Buy a v8 is you want to mod it and a v6 if you want a commuter.

I think I need to clarify something... if you had a typhoon or syclone or 2jz-gte in a supra or a 4g63 in an eclipse MOD the heck out of it! Im all about an AWD GSX with 500hp! BUT the camaro is a iconic MUSCLE CAR- meaning BIG v8 and mullets!

seriously guys. Nothing wrong with a v6. You gonna call Jay Leno a sissyburger because he has a twin turbo v6 too? It's a valid question, there's nothing wrong with modding anything you paid for in the first place. At least he spent the money on a decent car.

A forum is a place where people discuss what they find interesting and to help others etc. not to bash people for asking a question about their own car.

umm lets see, why get a V6? umm first off slightly lighter right off the bat. potent 300 horses. cheaper insurance, better fuel economy, add a supercharger and you'll be at 400+whp. and i can see that hanging in there w/ a bolt on SS. and you have ur self a car thats significantly cheaper cost wise w/ just as much performance. oh yeah and still have cheaper insurance and better fuel economy. for a Teen or young driver under 25 makes it a verry logical idea. cuz insurance for a teen or someone under 25 w/ no accidents on a V8 is ridiculous and if you have an accident or a ticket its outrageous.

so by your definition people shouldnt swap out their crap rotary engines in there RX7's or there RB28's in there 280's for a LS1/6/3/7? right? no cuz it doesnt belong there right? but yet people do it and have instant C6 Z06 killers. drop an LS7 in an FD and you a ZR1 killer.

to the OP, I would definatly like to see whipple maybe producing their 1.6L or 2.3L kit for the LLT engine, after all its in the hottest car on the planet, Camaro, right now as well as one of the hottest luxury cars, CTS, on the planet. who knows it all depends on demand. i'd get on some Caddy forums and have them push whipple into making a kit as well.

how many v-6 guys are tired of hearing the question "is that the ...." fill it in with SS, 400hp, or v-8. Its looking like quite a few of you. Im gunna say whipple and KB will scoff at the thought of a supercharger for a v-6. Maybe a custom turbo from an outfit but thats about all

Dude as much as I want to agree with you I really can not because I think that taking the v6 car and puttuing a turbo or 2 on it is going to become one of the hotest setups. That and the all might kene bell and whipple on the v8. I think everyone on site will be surprised at the numbers of the turbo v6. Only time will tell because the car has barely been out for year so all you v6 guys get busy and put some twins on that car, this coming from a v8 guy!

From what I've heard, the PCM on the V6 is totally different than the V8 and is more difficult to tune for F/I cases. Plus, the demand for F/I in V6 market is much much smaller than V8. If someone wants to add F/I to a V6, they get the V8 to start with. In fact it's cheaper and you still got the warranty. Just my two cents!

Guys Iam ALL ABOUT a twin turbo v-6 that would be sweet and i even said in an earlier post that turbo would be the way to go. Whipple and KB make select kits and are using their one of their smallest blowers on out 6.2 and still seeing big boost. There is no way they will make a whole new blower for a smaller application. Iam old school and close minded when it comes to v-8's when they are available, but ive owned and built plenty of turbo 4 bangers. Heck I took a 2000 silverado with a 5sp and 4.3 V6 and built a custom turbo kit for it using a turbo off a 6.5L chevy diesel. It lasted until I cranked the boost to 18psi. I can appricate anyone modding their cars we are all in this together, just DONT expect the super high HP supercharger manufactures to make a kit for a v-6

That's for sure...:(


If there is enough demand, they will make one, either that or Kenne Bell will step in (if there is demand). LPE is thinking about it, STS turbos is apparently working on something - and I'm sure there will be more with time. The 3.6L 6 is impressively responsive to modifications, supercharging will be no different...and more fun I think for the manufacturers to take advantage of that Direct Injection in their tuning software!

i love when people ask me if its the v8/gt , or v6 with my car. just the other night walked a roush 427R after he asked me, got the "holy shit nice car" after that though.

im all about making the car unique. if he wants to do stuff to his v6, more power to him. being the underdog is way more fun.

id be willing to put my v6 up against an SS or gt, or gt500 with boltons if you wanted.

if someone wanted to run 10s or 9s, ya dont start with the v6, but all if you want is to run 12s or 13s (which is WAY faster than muscle cars of the 60s) then the v6 is a great starting point.

Wellllll........I happen to like a car made by Buick '87 called the GNX. It wasn't supercharged, but it did happen to be the fastest American production car that year.......

Wow is anyone actuallly reading my posts?? Grand national HELL yeah! typhoon love it ect ect BUT were those offered with a v-8?? Do those have a heritage of being american muscle? NO and NO. I still love em tho. When a v-8 is available that is the only way to go if you want to mod your engine, not car. Like Z_rocks said if you want the same power the SS has, why not just start with it in the first place?? Do NOT say insurance because the added parts to your V-6 will pay years worth of premium. And do NOT say fuel mileage because my SS gets 21 all day.
