I'm just glad companies are still making new products for our platforms. I wonder why Whipple haven't adapted their new 3.8 blower for this platform. Not that many of us could use it as it would probably require an aftermarket block and the best of the best rotating assembly to maximize it.

Well I stand corrected then! lol...my paltry Compstar rotating assembly would probably twist like a pretzel if I tried to run a Whipple 3.8! :LOL:

I actually called Norris after watching that video, purely driven by curiosity.
As I'm building a 427 LsX now, I inquired what it would cost to do the Whipple on my long block. First you have to know that the front accessory system is all custom and designed after the Camaro spacings/locations and no, it won't fit in a V....
He said he could take my new (built for boost) long block , install all of the front accessory drive and the Whipple, tune it on the dyno using Holley aftermarket EFI system and then (I'd need to translate the fuel trims into HPTuners etc) and then making the whole thing fit into the V would be my problem... Six months and 17 grand.
He would not give me a price on the blower

That's today's market!


Weeeelllll...I have a block and rotating assembly rated for 2,000 hp on the way.

Thank you much my friend.. :giggle:

Everyone please take note:
Engine used E85. . .

427 CID Engine made 1200 HP.
=> (1200 / 427)= 2.88 HP per CID

That's pretty 'Stout'!

If the engine is efficient, on Gasoline, it would take about 492 cfm of flow per cylinder head to achieve that number.
***492 CFM would amount to about 1968 CFM of output flow from the blower, corrected to ambient temp.

By using the E85 that number is significantly reduced as the E carries Oxygen with it, which is moved into the cylinder not via the cylinder head (in it's typical fashion), but by the fuel pumps.

You’re in the right spot “parts and planning” phase - heck, send it. But I think the little 1.9 still puts up a fight, so I’ve read. I like the 2600/2650 bc of the relatively simple drop in - that 3.0 doesn’t sound so drop in for that price!! Well, drop off and someone will drop it in!

The Whipple 3.0 is 1.3" taller than an LSA so fitment may be an issue!

Here’s the Wegner link to the crate engine; no mention of fuel used in the description so the assumption is it’s gasoline. I had called on this crate and they didn’t mention E or race gas.
