Down Side They Are Bigger Than A Psi
Up Side You Can Pick Them Up For Around 4500 Each

I'm doing a set of Whipples now and I can't say enough good things about them. These are hydraulic rollers that make 1400 hp at 6100 rpm on 100 octane and 1200 at 6100 on 93 octane.
Gino, give me a shout if I can help you or answer any questions you may have. Thanks, Eddie.
He needs more then that 1400hp my friend.
Have you tried 1500plus on the 5.0?
I would suggest the 8.3 whipple but its new and unproven.
Really the old 980 would be a good choice.

I stand behind the PSI. Ask Mike D.
Or Dean Gellner.

What the hell do i know if it were my boat I would run Turbines.

Howard,

I forgot you had those bad boys! Those are massive blowers. Good thing about being big is that they turn so much slower to make the power. For the alcohol cars, they turned at a 1.6 ratio while the PSI turned 2.25.

Yes, the 5.0 has made 1650hp on gasoline. The 8.3 is the same supercharger. I've said this a thousand times. The difference, if you drive the male rotor, its a 5.0. If you drive the female rotor, its a 8.3. Therefore, if you spin the 8.3 to 12,000, it's the same as spinning the 5.0 to 19,920. So, with that in mind, if you drive (from crankshaft) the female rotor and spin it 12,000, the male rotor will be rotating at 19,920. If you drive the male rotor and turn it 19,920, then the female rotor will be turning 12,000.

The 8.3 is not unproven, it's worked just fine. It will make all the HP the PSI can make, and it also depends on which PSI, since there's a few versions, some are not nearly as good as others (designs), not to mention from one SC to the next.

The only advantage the PSI has for power is that you run so a huge opening flowing through the SC. Our rear entry can flow a bunch of air, but it's pretty hard to compare to the massive injector hat. It's pretty darn close, and I've gotten it to where I feel confident the 8.3 will out perform the PSI.
