    I wanted a whipple for the longest time. After doing spark plugs last week I see the value in a removable elbow. Don’t get me wrong if I had the dough I’d love a whipple but I’d seriously look at a TVS too

    Unless you are on the used market there are no 2.3 or 2.65 VMP blowers at the moment. The 2.65 Gen 3R is coming out soon. I've been going back and forth for the last few months with this. Can't go wrong with a Whipple... that's where I'm at right now. About to pull the trigger on one. The 3.0 looks like a hell of a deal but a bit more $. Great deal on all of the Whipples this weekend.

    I never pulled the plenum with the eaton to change plugs. I don't have any issues with the Whipple. Although if you're running a high boost intake it can be a pain. Went through that with a buddies car recently.

    There aren’t any 2.3 or 2.65 VMP blowers available brand new. Whipple still has the 2.3 and 2.9 and 3.0 out on special this weekend. Not much info out there on the latest 2.3 (Gen 3 or Gen 4?)

    I only mentioned VMP as someone recommended getting one earlier in the thread.

    I think you are confusing plugs and injectors.....2.3 whipple no problem changing plugs easy job.....injector swap more difficult

    I can vouch for it being a pain in the a$$ to change plugs on the passenger side.. but nothing to do with the blower. It’s with the JLT high boost that you have to get it out of the way to access the plugs. In reality it only takes a few more minutes to disconnect the stuff in the fender and be able to move the tube out of the way.

    I can see that high boost being an issue....but I think it's a hassle regardless of blower.

    I'm running the oem factory inlet with a gen2 2.3 whipple so no additional complications. Supports plenty of hp/tq

    That’s too much. I couldn’t even get $3,000 for my gen2 2.9 whipple
