Whipple Installed and running!

Well, I picked up a whipple kit and decided to install it myself since the shop couldn't get it in until the end of July.



My buddy did his own Maggie by himself so I went to his house to help me with the install.



Come to find out the Whipple install is much, much more than a Maggie.





Not fun unless you have blood in it.










Install took us about 17 hours or so.
I didn't like the location of the stock fluid tank for the Whipple, so I bought the roto fab one.

First drive, car wasn't running right. . . come to find out that I moved a wrong wire... we let the engine cool down moved the right wire and BAM all good.

Car is amazingly fast... almost gave my dad a heart attack when I took him for a ride this morning.

I must say, that is pretty dang awesome, considering you did it yourself!! I like to tackle things on my own, but there's no way I would attempt to install a SC on a 5th Gen Camaro. Simply Amazing.....

It was a a chore of an install for sure. The install directions from whipple weren't the best. Would have been better with colored photos and there was directions at the bottom of one page and a picture on the other... it caught us a couple times.

first time out, I'd say it was almost to **** fast. LOL

Here's our first drive out.

Couldn't help but laugh.

No motor mod at all... just installed the whipple and done. The only other power mod I'll be doing is a dyno tune.
