I agree ... Whipple with Single Blade Throttle Body! Go with normal size 2.3 I believe, not the larger one as it will not fit under your hood in most cases and from what everyone says you have to really spin it fast (19+ boost to get the benefits from it). Depending on amount of hp you want will determine what you have to add. I am running 15 lbs of boost, long tube headers, 60lb injectors, h-pipe with free flow cats, cold air intake, bigger mass air, gt pumps, boosted fpdm, and I am running 575 - 585 rwhp. Could have more, but am taking it to the track a lot and want to keep the block in one piece. With the standard 3.5 " pulley you will have more hp than stock and will not have to modify as much. Go any smaller and you have to change the fuel system. The Whipple is a whole different animal than the Eaton! It never quits and pulls very hard!

You could get in the mid 600's with 21-23# of boost and some high octane gas. I'm about to go this route. You could also get some nitrous with your current set-up. You have some good numbers with what you have now, but the whipple just keeps on pulling. It is a big difference compared to the eaton. Look at my sig for mods needed.

KB/Whipple.


I don't care which I have I just want one or the other. If I was to just pick one I would say Whipple though.

Helion single turbo kit ...will cost a tad bit more, but has more potential in the long run
