You're looking at an 8# lower and 3.375 upper to make 17 - 18#'s on a fully built motor. What size of pulley is on your Whipple?

You many run into to some belt slip problems trying to find a small enough upper pulley to get that kinda boost with a 6# lower.

With the stock idlers I bought a 69.625 and it was tight, 70" would be perfect.

It's all in my sig. 12* of timing. 93 octane
But now that I think of it, it was at 16lbs before I had to gut the cats, so it should be lower now. Anyone know about how much lbs of boost you loose after goin catless?
