Pulled my Whipple. Should I trade it?

    Looking for opinions after pulling my Whipple off the Boss during my 6R80 swap. Was going to sell it as a turn key kit (Sai Li/ID 1000’s) but I feel I’m better off finding a trade partner instead of starting over.

    I pulled the blower off due to the instant torque, so I now want something that builds boost or is adjustable.

    The Whipple made 687 on 93 Whipple tune and 820 on E85/PBD so I'm looking for something that’s capable of making some steam.

    Considering a single, twins, or a larger centri (JT/YSI, D1/F1). A cooler running setup is desirable in this central FL climate.

    I rarely see forced induction trades and my Whipple is red so I’m not sure if this is a viable option anyway. I would appreciate input on which system to go with or if I should scrap the whole trade idea.

    If you don’t like the powerband you should be able to swap it for a nice centri kit without much hassle. Just look over the parts VERY thoroughly

    Very nice set-up man, I think I'd save yourself some serious headaches, and just continue to run the Whipple. Speaking from experience here, any power adder Coyote's going to be a handful, especially on any tire under the sun short of a drag radial / bias slick. I was nowhere near 8xxwhp with my Paxton. And I will tell you I wouldn't go full throttle on the street with Radial pros, until I was at a speed that wouldn't allow the car to down-shift into first. AKA no matter how you achieve it, you're going to have too much power to ask any sort of street tire to handle imo.

    How much boost did it take for that 820/607? What pulley set-up

    I would think between going to a larger pulley and having the tuner pull some timing strategically that you could tame it down pretty effectively.

    That’s a good option. After seeing another shop customer run 8.88 with the same gen 2 blower I may hold on to it.

    Thanks for the input guys.

    Sold the Whipple a couple months ago. Leaning towards the On3 single but still considering the Hellion twin or a Large Centri, JT probably.

    Since the car will be on the stock converter/trans and won’t see the track (for a couple of years) the lower torque of the centri might suit me. I would however like the coolest IAT/Underhood system and one that won’t hack up the engine bay if I ever decide to sell the Boss.

    After having the Whipple whine mod, I would also prefer a system with an audible presence.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks. I thought their single kits had a bad reputation. Did they revise the kits?

    Not that I know of. I just know they claim you dont have to modify your car like some single kits. I just discovered their HLX upgrade, my wife loves the sound. I just dont think it is worth the price. I just saw you wanted something louder, it came to mind.

    Assuming you just got it. When are you doing the install? What do you think of the quality?

    Just got it. Won’t be installed for a while. I may lend a hand but most of it will be done by a pro. Quality is really good. Price was amazing!

    Care to share details on price? Maybe through a PM?
    What are your goals with this?
    My only thing that I dont like about the single is deleting items to get it to work. I want an all around car. It doesnt have to be the best at anything.
