I got two more days of cutting up trees thens it back to the boat about a day or two to finish at our rate.
hope all had fun over the weekend next month I get to split all this wood I cut up , later Art!!!
I talked to Danny as he was coming into the ramp with Dustin waiting on the dock. He ran in the front at LOTO but didnt want to run the shootout as he had the wrong gearing and the boat was sold. I talk to Danny all the time. As far as run's there's always the CT river run in OCT and we'll get something planned soon.

I can testify that Whipples customer service is awsome...I had a few little issues with a motor they built for me (something they do not normally do...or specialize in.)..and they resolved all the issues at their cost....No hassels what so ever.

I would recommend Whipple to anyone wanting to make big...reliable ...power.

Their customer service rocks!

There's no denying the reliability and power potential of the PSI and it sounds like Roger and the guys have worked out most of the part throttle driveability issues, but in my opinion the Whipple is a much more user friendly package, has more options to fit various needs, and is pretty much bolt on. Just add injectors and a computer of your choice ad go. CPPerf and others have complete pulley sets, and their intercoolers are kickass. I don't know if the PSI can match the cruise efficiency of the Whipple either. I love the look of the PSI and if it was a carb application it would be a tougher choice but for EFI I'll take the Whipple.

Far better than others. Ask any drag racer about how fast they get there SC's. I know some that had to wait 6 months for 1 supercharger!!! I highly doubt there are many that go as far as I go for our customers.

They had a pulley issues as I said before the run, but the issues was the bolts were bottomed out, therefore not tight, that doesn't workout to well. Fixed it before run, they ran, but had other issues unrelated to the superchargers, such as valve train.

Not that many want too, but we have plenty that do.
Its nice to see facts other than just opinions. Is there anyone from PSI on oso?

Ask any drag racer how belts live with there PSI's.


Pure P sure loses alot of belts ,and thats surely not an incorrect set-up being built & maintained with an open checkbook and it was 3 years you were looking for $$$$ coin to continue with the developement ..





and i'd take a Kevlar belt & a PSI and finish a run, then keep throwing belts and snout problems on the whirple ..
