Re: Whipple supercharger

its not a whipple, its a Eaton brand supercharger that as you know was used on the 03/04 cobras (M112). If its the one pictured then its from a lightning which is an M90 I believe? the intake will have to be changed as well if its that.

They make a kit to fit it on your GT, not sure how much the kit is though.

If all you have is the supercharger you need the heat exchanger, intercooler, lines, intake adapter, and many other little things.

Just to let you know the blower itself is worth around 1000. The kit will be around 4000-5000 depending on the kit. These are just round abouts not accurate prices.

Lol I was gonna say the stock cobra sc is eaton. I don't much care for vortech sc's they do put out alot of power but for a bit more you could get a whipple or kenne bell and put out ALOT more and have everything needed to do the install too.

I wouldnt say KB or whipple can put out a ton more power than a vortech. A stock motor can only handle so much so unless its a built motor they can all only make the same anyway. After that its just about the head unit. Vortech makes several different sized blowers that move alot of cfm at lower temps than alot of kb or whipples can. There is also vortech aftercoolers that are a great design along with afm power pipes and pullies that can make vortechs just as powerful as the rest for less money. You just have to have the right setup

many have put the M112 on their 3.8L OHV V6, the issue is cooling, you cant use the factory cooling solution due to the pushrod design~ they generally run 8psi and see 300rwhp with the eaton and stock cobra pulley

you can get a stock 03/04 cobra blower for 200-500 bucks depending on miles used. The rest of the kit will probably run you 2500 dollars, then tuning expect another 1000~

the eaton is good up till around 15-17psi, the issue is its a root blower (NOT A TWIN SCREW) and it gets HOT and heat kills hp/tq and engines the vortech will make more power up top but not as much tq down low. The positive displacement blowers (root and twin screw) work GREAT in the lower rpm band, check my dyno sheet in my sig for details.

I stand corrected on the m112 on a v6

But your pricing that stuff low...
By the time you go get fuel pumps, heat exchanger, injectors(which are not cheap at all), intake manifold, cai, alternator relocation kit, belt,and if he has to pay for the labor. 2500 is a real low blow.
And yes you can pick up used ones for 200-500 but new or extremely low mile ones cost closer to 1000
