That still doesn't explain the differences.

Another nice thing with the Whipples is that they develop alot of boost at lower rpm's, great throttle response.

Eaton is now producing Lysholm type blowers. ie with internal compression.

However, AFAIK, they only produce these for the OEM market. Whipple produces for the aftermarket. I'm sure Dustin will be along shortly to clarify this.

I saw them, Eaton, at the LA Roadster Swap Meet. They were trying to sell them to the roadster guys. Looks just the same as a Whipple but they made a shaft to turn the blower around.

Thx Strip

How many hours do you have on your 3.3's now ???? Just curious what you think the rebuild interval on the blower is.

Who has Whipples and how to you like them?
They make a superior product IMO. Along with the quad, the W305 is also a good choice from Whipple for a big HP motor. Super smooth efi linkage too.
Whipple is a company that has really pushed hard for a long time and it shows in the performance/reliablity of their SC's. If I were you, I would not hesitate to purchase one(or two) Whipple's from your local distributor.

Hi Gary ,
