    Default Well got started on the Whipple project

    I went over to bigger bros house sence he has a bad ass shop to work in and got things started. I spent most of all weekend working on it buy my self so It took a little time. My brother helped me set the manifold and the supercharger. Just to big of a job for one person. I still have to install the sea strainer, water pick up , gauges, and run all the fuel lines. But I feel I got the big stuff done. I bet I would be lucky to get it all done in another weekend. But whats the hurry. It's like 40's here and theres still snow on the ground. So I still have some time on my hands. So far I feel Whipple has done a great job with the installation instructions. But not done yes. Heres some pic along the way

    The only thing that not comming together right now is the wireing harness behind the ecm. I hope that I can tuck it all behind there and make it look clean. But I havent really tryed yet. It just seams that there is not much room with the wires and the stuff on the side of the whipple???? I dont know maby it will all come together in the end. I just want it to look as clean as the 496's I have seen on the net and other peoples look. So hoppe it will all wirk out. As I do more I'll take more pic

    you would even get more preformance been that you have a cat. Ive been told that 496 v hulls get about 10 to 12 mph and some cats are getting as much as 15mph with the kit. Time will tell for me??? But it's been fun working on the boat. Talk about spring fever!

    That is quite a project to tackle yourself. Its nice to mess with the boat during the winter, really shortens the off season.

    I just got some more stuff form dana, rex and eddie this week so this weekend will be bussy.I'm having alot of fun doing it but you are right it's a very big project. There is so much detail that seams to take lots of time. But I also have some time on my hands. Maybe I can get it out this next weekend, maybe????

    Wow. Look at the reversion! I knew the stock exhaust was restrictive, but I had no idea it pushes that much exhaust back into the intake.



    Argh! Why can't MFGs just put on some efficient exhaust from the start?!
