Ok hears the deal..... I have a 2010 GT500. I am planning on putting the Whipple twin screw supercharger on it. I have been told this will give around 800 Hp. I am also putting a upgraded Exhaust and headers on it. Has anybody done anything like this? Any problems? Should I be looking at anything else. Any help or recommended ideas? Thanks for the Help

I think you might be a pioneer in this. I would contact Shelby in vegas cause they do a similiar thing w/ the super snake but w/ a kenne bell. Also contact evolution perfomance im sure they will be more than helpful. They know their stuff.
Actually, I just read somewhere that Shelby was going to use the Whipple on the 2010 Super Snake, not sure if exclusively or not. Pretty exciting!!

Shelby is just waiting for C.A.R.B. certification on the 3.4 Whipple,,,750hp
I ordered the TVS 2300 blower from FRPP 650hp with warranty, FRPP also is offering the Whipple 2.9 as a kit with no warranty on your 2010,,,750hp :)

The Whipple is a good choice as is the Kenne Bell. I would suggest that you read some of the technical articles on the Kenne Bell website as it relates to the additional add-on's like headers, etc. What they discovered is that once a twin-screw supercharger is added there is negligible to no increases in hp or torque when things like headers and different x-pipes are added. Interesting read indeed.

I'm going with the FRPP 750 hp upgrade which is the 2.9 Whipple. It will not require a new hood or different engine mounts.

Good luck.

From reading on this subject on another forum, if you're stepping up to a Whipple or KB supercharger wouldn't you need to do something about fuel delivery (injectors and fuel pump)?

I think the 2.9 Whipple would be really nice. Hope to have one installed by the end of this year.

I am going with the 72lb injectors.

What made you pick the Whipple over the TVS?

Is the Whipple a twin screw? I'm not so sure I like the idea of a supercharger compressing the air ALL THE TIME like a twin screw does. I'd like to pass at least 3 gas stations before stopping! LOL

Well let me tell you my "Playboy Bunny Marrying Little Friend" :rofl:

Seriously, THIS IS JUST MY OPINION and there is ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with the other products. First I thought long and hard about what is the mission for the car. I really have not totally decided this. For the most part for me this is just going to be one hot ride. I will not be drag racing nor will I put it on the track.

I looked at the TVS 2.3 (Still a favorite) KB 2.8, Whipple 3.4 and of course the Whipple 2.9.

TVS 2.3 - Nice but for what I want just too small. I also really like the aggressive look of it. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH IT but not meet my mission for my car.

KB 2.8 - Need to notch the hood. Plus I have seen more failures on line with this one then any others. But I guarantee the moment that this post someone somewhere will prove me wrong. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH IT but not meet my mission for my car.

Whipple 3.4 - Need to drop the engine about half a inch or so. IMO not really a do it in your garage scenario. Plus a TON of HP with this one. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH IT but not meet my mission for my car.

Whipple 2.9 - As Goldy Lox said this one is just right! Do not need to lower the engine or notch the hood. Lots of power potential on pump gas and then if I want more I can make additional mods.

Again to be real here, this is what is right for me. There is nothing that I can find wrong with any of these products.

Dude, your local. We need to get together and have a beer and I will share with you more of my dumb philosophies.

I was seriously looking at a 2.9 (even got a price from SAI) but I backed off and ordered a TVS. Either one is a good choice, depending on what your mission is.

You guys doing the 2.9 remember you will probably need a one piece driveshaft. That SC has made pretzels into stockers.

I was REAL close to going with the TVS. Nice choice. For me I just wanted a little more. Will be running the stock pulley on the 2.9 so I will have plenty of room for growth and tons in reserve.

DS - Yes that will eventually have to be completed, before spring. Currently 40 degrees here or so in central Texas and stock tires. No real fear of hooking up. Should be a great tire smoker in the mean time. I figure while it is cold this is a good project to get knocked out.
