Re: ford racing tvs 2.3 vs. whipple 2.9 vs vmp tvs

That is great to hear BJ! Ok I am convinced VMP is the way to go. There are so many people that say great things and I can't really find any negative! Now that Lidio, my long term tuner, can work with it, thats perfect. He really is the only one I have come to trust over the years. I will talk to him next week when I drop off the car. Thanks BJ. And sorry to refer to you as Justin in the early posts. Thought that is who I was talking to! Should I talk him into using your pulley? He was talking about using the 2.6 Metco.

He's a Metco dealer. I'm sure he'll have no issue with using ours. Metco will fit, it's just a little different on the snout as far as where you position it.

No problem with referring to me as Justin. VNMOUS1 has been yours truly since 2006. I work for Justin and we are 100% in sync with business matters.

The other great thing for you ...and Lidio...is that we have that 1 year warranty on the unit. The Ford piece has none.

Lidio is part of Alternative Auto Performance? Wish I knew you were in town, I could have showed you my shop. I am 3 mins from there.

Got Facebook? As sad as this is, it truly is the way we keep folks informed as to our VMP activities. We were in town for 9 days. Ran out to Paul's, to IN to see Brent, Ford, Roush, PAS and a bunch of time at Woodward.

One of the reasons we were there was to witness the birth of the newest VMP TVS Supercharger, the 1.9L upgrade for Roush M90 equipped cars.

This thing KILLS.

We put unit #1 on a Bullitt the other day and made 483/460, about 60 over the M90 on both numbers. Torque up the wazoo. It's on the site now.

With as many M90 as run around up there, you may want to check it out.

Anyway..... Meet us halfway in October when we head to Bowling Green NMRA.

Thumbs up Re: ford racing tvs 2.3 vs. whipple 2.9 vs vmp tvs

I'm looking to start my first mod's on a 2012 GT500 SVTPP, maybe somewhere in the 3-4K price range, starting with a VMP TVS and pulley I think, any recommendations on size and what. After the blower and pulley, what else should I be looking at doing.

Thanks ahead of time for any input from you guy's that have already done your mod's.
