Whip it, whip it good, oh wrong thing! Whipple has done some subtle changes to the twin screw that Kenne belle is working to copy, I know this for a fact :thumbsup:

What about the smaller bearings in the whipple????
Is that just Kenne Bell Hype???
The rotor screws are a different male to female ratio....for one....
Cast hsng vs Billet....

I was under the impression the LARGER K B still had some advantages..... although at a price.

I really like that first gen KB for a street brawler....:thumbsup:

"Darn, I am on Rachels screen name again."

:lol: :lol:

When funds return to some form of normalcy..... I would love to pickup, even a very used, high mile KB...... I think they are that good! :thumbsup:

The :whipit: Is bigger in displacement than your fist gen KB though....
Except for the oil spray issue ....
I can't think of any down sides to the KB 1st gen....
Oh ...... they are LOUD!!!...... Oh dear ..... that's a real problem....lol :rolleyes: :p

The oil spray problem was an assembly line/parts supplier issue. The bolts used to mount the snout to the blower were just a micrometer to long, thus not allowing for a good seal. The other is in the intake side of things, the plenum narrows to about 2 1/4", before getting larger just before entering the blower. Also the exit side is narrow as well, nothing that a CNC machine could not adjust:thumbsup:

Dang, I did it again:doh2: . Really, Rachel is a closet gear head and is the one with all of the knowledge.:doubt:

Jimmy..... It's only money.... ;)

PS:---->edit--->Note: The 2.4L supercharger is NOT interchangeable on a 2.2L kit. The 2.4 is 1" longer and the kit uses a different drive and pulley, lower manifold, inlet manifold, brackets, coolant tube and intercooler water outlet. Therefore, there is no way a 2.2L kit can be upgraded to a 2.4L kit

27 pounds ain't enough???? :doubt:

Any more than that and you'll be running 116 VP racing gas, or
Methanol---->can you imagine the amount of fuel you would have to pump and inject into the engine if converted to methanol :eek: ......3/4" lines!!!

I think unless you are going to upgrade the bottom....pistons, and rods(Oliver crown oilers).... you may soon see rings butting ends, and trying to seize to the walls..... As strong as our pistons and rods are..... they are still a compromise.
You are "exploring the limits of the stock bottom end"...... NOW!!!

I vote..... Minor tweaking to the existing set up!
Have fun with it!...... drive it!.... race it!..... cruise it!

It's already a fantastic testimony to the strength and power potential of the stock Terminator block... NOW!!!

Reliability will surely suffer $$$$$$$ at power levels much beyond what you are currently running....









Besides just how jealous do you want us to get????? :rotf:

Frankenstang Rocks!!!

More volume and less boost is always a good thing :D

has anyone paid the $$$ to have their KB repaired ??? IOW, to fix the oil spray feature...

they want like $ 500 to repair an issue that they should repair free of charge, right?!?

The easy fix is to grind off the ends of the bolts that hold on the snout, less than 1/2 milimeter, taper the ends just slightly and retorque. Just do 1 at a time and you should be ok. Or you can order the correct size form K Belle. Yes, they should send the bolts free, but not much luck there.
