keep the KB
Brad, I don't get it either. If I was going to replace my 2.3 Kenne Bell it would at least have to be a larger supercharger. Nothing wrong with either superchargers, 2.3 Kenne Bell or 2.3 Whipple. Either 2.3's will get you into the 10.XX club with the right foundation behind it. Just as important as what supercharger you select, you have to have your suspension working to obtain that lower ET.keep the KB
Fade-2-Black told me he ran a 11.09 on my 2.3 Kenne Bell at 24lbs of boost. On the same motor with the his 3.4 Whipple he ran a 11.05 on 20lbs of boost. I really don't think the 2.3 Whipple would have ran any better for him.well bob thats my thing im not sure the 2.3kb can get me a 10sec pass or lets say i think the whipple would be easier to get there. whipple just seems to perform better
I like and respect JL. But he sells KB blowers. The KB 2.3 has run 10.5s on a few trucks. The Whipple 2.3 has run 10.2s. Vinnie Telesco did a back to back test on his pristene truck when the Whipple just became available. Years of developement on his KB combo. One week with a borrowed Whipple and he shaved over two tenths. Further tuning of that combo certainly would have been even better. This is not a knock against KB. Their blower had been out for years. Whipple had a target and had to surpass it to gain a foothold. It really is no magic. The Whipple's rear entry design is simply more efficient than the KB.Johnny Lightning thinks other wise.
If he ran the Whipple(either one) at 24#s of boost, I guarantee he would have run faster, assuming traction was adequate.Fade-2-Black told me he ran a 11.09 on my 2.3 Kenne Bell at 24lbs of boost.
