I'm currently running K/Bs tune. Don't really want to void their warranty. I would do the Mishimoto 3 core in a heartbeat if I was sure it would help the fan work less. I asked K/B about the Rad. they didn't think it would do much. But then again you really can't tell those K/B guys anything.

Re: Official Whipple/KB/Eaton HP/TQ/mods thread:

Re: Official Whipple/KB/Eaton HP/TQ/mods thread:

Hey guys. I was wondering what kind of pulley setup I could use on a ported eaton and ported heads to pick up some boost. I was at 9 psi with just a 2.76 upper before ported eaton and ported heads. Is it possible to hit 14-15 psi on this blower without over working it?

Re: Official Whipple/KB/Eaton HP/TQ/mods thread:

Great Thread.

I was looking into the kb 2.1L on their site and was wondering if anything would still be needed to run this.

My car has 55k miles and only mods are flowmasters, o/r h and jlt rai.

Please let me know your guys suggestions. I really need it.

Thanks again.

Not sure what you mean by this. If you are asking if everything comes with the kit, then yes. Everything you need comes with the kit except for spark plugs and antifreeze.

Re: Official Whipple/KB/Eaton HP/TQ/mods thread:

I wouldn't recomend the non intercooled 5psi kit. These blowers produce heat and 5lbs will just tease you.

Running 5#'s of boost is like a girl telling you, you can only stick the head in and thats it.

I would consider a dyno tune and not the Kenne Bell supplied chip.

I tend to agree with this. The 9psi intercooled kit is the best option on a stock motor.

Re: Official Whipple/KB/Eaton HP/TQ/mods thread:

anyone else running stage 3 cams with their blower (Whipple)? Mine seems to run pig rich at idle and my tailpipe tips are always turning black. The exhuast fumes are heinous especially when sitting in line at a fast food stop. It sounds good but I'm sure the folks behind me are cursing me!

It starts easy and runs strong but it seems to surge or pulse at idle. My idle is at 850. I am running Bosch 02 sensors and I've heard that the factory Ford ones are better and heat up faster. I don't have any SE Codes but have thought about a retune just for idle thinking the short term fuel tables need tweaked. Any comments?

Re: Official Whipple/KB/Eaton HP/TQ/mods thread:

After all these years, I'm finally doing a KB 2.1. I plan on running the intercooled kit and keep it around 8lbs.

I've talked with Kenne Bell and the place that is going to do the install and they say my car completely stock will handle the power just fine. Do you guys see any problems? Tranny, rearend, etc? Do you guys recommend anything beyond just the kit?

I don't ever take the car to the track. I'm just doing it because I think it would be cool and I want to have more power than the new v6s!

Only if you got the money to build a motor if your stock went, or if this isn't your daily driver.

man if your just running the 8psi you should be fine, but you prob want to upgrade your fuel system atleast, i don't know if the KB kits come with it

fuel injectors
MAF
fuel pump
tuner

atleast that stuff, also happy are getting one, also you will be fine but getting your rear end build would help, but will be fine running stock set up. you don't have to but a good ideal for the future when you get extra money
