Ordered a whipple! Anyone that's got any tips or insight plea

Recommended Posts

It has been a long road but we are nearing the end! My mechanic had to have the valley plate machined .030 where the hpfp mounts as that's how much shim we required and no one makes one. I like this method much better

 

Also they had to cut the section of ports on the plenum where there are clearance issues with the lt4 pump. Cody refabbed the area beautifully! Whipple claimed it would be a year before their casting design was updated to include clearance for the lt4 pump. I have some pics and a few more vids I'll post asap but we are waiting on a different methanol tank then we will be breaking it in.

Damn that's quite the build

 

What's your plan for traction? You going to be running in awd?

Curious to see trap speeds and numbers on this setup

If he can nail down the traction

 

My guess .....750whp, 11.5 at 120mph

I'm shooting for quite a bit more than 750 on 35" slicks it should hook ok but yes If it won't I'll stick it(or break it) with awd launch.

Ah didn’t think you could get there with that pulley. No doubt the build is good for it.

 

Judging by your build, either you or the builder has a lot of experience with the lt1. The vettes and camaro’s have way less parasitic losses. You may already know this, but just something to take into account if you haven’t. Two identical builds on a truck vs car will have like 100+whp difference.

 

if you’re shooting for 10’s I’m guessing you’re after 900+whp.

 

Nuts man, keep us updated, that’s incredible

That is all very correct.  

 

 

I collected all parts and have been there for the shop along the way and have spoken to every big shop and manufacturer OWNER Over the last year.  The shop is an ls based shop and th owner rides a c7 zo6 with a pro charger.  He and I along with the tech fastcody have learned alot from each other and its been a hell of a ride.  I am not one to boost or brag on my knowledge but yes.  I speak genV.

 

I'm finalizing the 8 rib pulley setup from innovators west (od balancer and 3" upper). And speaking of the trans I have my spare 8l90 on its wa to Tim king for him to play with and see what he can come up with as far as upgrades.
