    As if a gen 2 whipple 2.3 @ 21 psi and 10:1 compression aluminator wasn't enough, I pulled the trigger on a whipple 2.9 last Monday. Picked her up today @ Fed EX.

    This will be a teaser thread I am sorry. I doubt I will get around to installing it until January, due to work / life constraints at the moment.

    Will post more detailed pics in this thread later tonight. 800 plus rwhp here we come, once again, thanks to e85!
    Here is a teaser cell phone shot to get the ball rolling. The snout is coming off later for wetsanding / polishing, like my old Gen 2 whipple!

    And a highly wetsanded and polished RR 3.2 pulley to top her off.

    Where are you guys buying the 2.9L from? And whats the avg price on these units? Is it true that Tousely sells the 2.3L for 3100?

    Very nice Erik! What kind of boost will get with that pulley? Are boost levels vs. pulley sizes somewhat similar to the 2.3's?

    When E-85 comes to the panhandle, I will attempt to be the 1st KB 2.2 Cobra drinking the E-85.

    New shit is always fun. So enjoy being friggin crazy, at least you have money in your wallet lol! Thanks bro!

    well get yourself one! problem solved.

    Sorry for the tease. I dont drag race. I cant drive my car to its full potential anyway. Don't ask me why I want more, its just too much fun working on my car!

    Go easy on him Brian!

    I got a good deal thru Lethal. I will leave it at that. I have done much business with them in the past, and they hooked me up with a much better price than what is advertised online. Out of respect for their business, I'll leave the cash talk out of this thread!

    Whats the hold up man? :burnout:



    Better to be a slow lover than one that finishes too quickly :bash:

    Thx!

    Yes.

    Lethal Performance MAP is $3705. Yes that is the price from Tousley on the 2.3.

    answered see above

    John,
    I'm estimating 18-19 psi with 3.2 upper only. No, the boost / pulley does differ from the 2.3 based off of info I have read online about this blower.

    I would sell it, but its already gone!

    Gitterdun!

    Actually I think the price from Tousley is $3209.

    I wonder who you sold it to? :smmon:
