Only problem with the blower was the hood not fitting.

After 5 years of fun with the Whipple I've started to look to something different. We've taken the Whipple off and sold it. We learned some lessons and have to say that the new 4.0 upgrade to the COPO with the 170 mm TB and crusher intake will be a superb combination. Our homemade solutions provided a lot of fun and some impressive horsepower. The upgrades Whipple has come up with will put this combination over the top. I would not hesitate to put it on a new Camaro.

We are going with twin 62 mm Turbos now. The fabrication is complete, everything coated, and we are working to clean up the wiring after yanking the supercharger. We also discovered 1110 foot pounds of torque from a PD blower beats the crap out of motor mounts so we are replacing them too. Finally we just had GForce Engineering replace the Wavetrac 35 Spline differential with the Strange S-Trac unit. The Wavetrac could not hold the power with the transbrake. We still think the Wavetrac is an excellent solution for cars running under 600 whp and we recommend checking closely on your solution to ensure your warranty on the Wavetrac is valid.

The Wavetrac would not hold the power and the warranty was going to go away at our level so we ditched it. Got the Strange S-trac in today. We will be installing it soon.
