KB 2.2 is LOUD as HELL!! trust me I know this first hand. My friend's my put a 2.1KB on her 99 GT and was very dissatisfied with the outcome. Might be different for your car but I believe she only got 8psi boost. She ran a 13.0 sec 1/4 mile. Her 2.1 is not that loud as SpectorV s=mentioned.

The 2.2 on my car puts out 20psi, but I have little different set up. LOL And it is loud!!! here are some sound clips:

‪'03 Terminator Cobra, Kenne Bell 2.2‬‏ - YouTube
‪2.2L Kenne Bell on a Cobra‬‏ - YouTube

good luck with your setup!! take plenty of pictures to share with everyone.

Re: Kenne bell question!! Need help

I don't think they make the 2.2l anymore I think that was a louder blower. I have the 2.1l and I'm only running 9 psi and I don't hear it much but I have a very loud exhaust. At 14 psi you should hear it more.

You will be happy with the torque. I make over 400 ft/lbs at 2000 rpm. My numbers were 405whp and 446 torque. Not bad for a 2V. It was tuned by Jon Lund.

The 2.1 wont get you to 900hp.

Also you will run out of fuel if you are going to use the stock pump with boost a pump. 9 psi will have you maxxed out at 6000rpm.

You will need a 03/04 cobra tank and fuel pump to run that boost level

They no longer make the 2.2. They only offer the 2.1 and 2.6. If your going to have a built motor then I will tell you exactly what the kenne bell tech guy told me. Basically he said with a built motor that the 2.1 will be extremely limited because you can only boost it to 14 psi. The 2.6 kit basically convert your gt to a cobra. It turn your intake and everything to the cobra but retaining the 2v. With a built motor your not going to get as much out of it as you expect with the 2.1 cause it's basically built for stock motors. The only thing you really need to worry about different with the 2.6 over the 2.1 is larger injectors cause it comes with none and a larger fuel pump and you have to have the cobra R hood for clearance reasons. That's it.

Not true. You will not get supercharger whine with the 2.1.

Kenne bell says the 2.1 blower has a 750 hp rating so if you think that built for stock motors you have a hell of a stock motor.

And if you think you need the 2.6 to get you to cobra status that is wrong. I just turned 446 ft/lbs at the wheels with my 2.1 at 9 psi, a stock cobra can't do that. You would have to pulley a stock cobra to get there.
Also you can run more than 14psi with the 2.1 no problem if you have the supporting mods to handle that.

That's not what I was saying. I'm not saying that's the only way to convert it. This is what the guy at kenne bell told me. Just relaying the message.

And actually you can't run more then that without massive lose from the supercharger. It's not able to handle the massive air flow

Sorry bro that's just not true. Not to knock Kenne bell but depending on which guy you spoke with you may have gotten some bad info. Google it, there are plenty of people running more than 14 psi with the 2.1

Efficiency may go down, but to say the motor is not able to handle the massive air flow is inaccurate.

Well either way for less then 500 dollars you can get the 2.6 and get more performance from the get go. But only if your motor is built

Horsepower per pound of boost may go down when boost goes over 14 psi but 20 still will yield more hp than 18psi

You just have to be careful with heat. You need a very good heat exchanger to run high boost otherwise its dangerous for your motor. Heat in the intake cuts ignition timing which cuts power so if you are pushing too much boost and cant cool it then boost pressure is just a number and is being a negative effect past a certain point

Also, if you put too large of a blower on you may experience part throttle drivability issues. Bigger isn't always better

Wow that's really low horsepower. What's that have to do with what you quoted in your post? He was asking about 14 psi and the heat exchanger.

What did your buddy's mom have like 6 psi? I have a 9 psi pulley and turned 405whp.

Sorry reading to many post together!

She has a 97 GT so that might be why! Not really close to what he has. Epic fail!

Re: Kenne bell question!! Need help

I've said it before and got in trouble in the forums but I'll say it again because it needs to be said.

I would quit messing around with some of the bad info that floats around here. Talk to kenne bell and they will tell you what is ideal for your setup and your goals. Also talk to your tuner and installer, it will save you money in the end. You are asking alot and kenne bell will tell you. I have a kenne bell kit and got tired of sifting through the wrong info that people who don't have kits and or can't afford them will try to tell you.

If you are doing cams as well the car will need to be tuned so why not get your tuners input?
