I cant imagine that an upgrade from a reputable company like Whipple would negatively affect the resale value of your boat. Most guys like going faster, and a faster boat is worth more.

Its not like some back yard mechanic just threw some pieces on the motor. Dustin was the original developer for these powerplants.

Chris In my opinion once you step up to a 700+ package you know and accept that its a high horse power engine and the life is shorter and maintenance is going to be higher.

Kinda like my Chevelle,racing it stuff is going to break!! That just part of it.

It would be cool if Dustin could put 2 cals in it with a switch for 2 diff pulley sizes Allow 700+ with the upgrades on low oct and the 800+hp with 93 or race gas


As far as loosing value,that would depend on how the person drove it,you can pull that info out of it,I guess there concern would be its turn up = raged out.

If I had 700's I would want at least upper 800's!!! Its never fast enough and you cant have to much horsepower.

I never saw more than 105* manifold intake temp on short WOT bursts, but I run out of lake as soon as I top out.

Agreed - if its done like yours.

A Whipple installed by Whipple is a premium add on one can legitimately charge for (especially documented so cleanly)

A Whipple installed by me/ or "some guy" is a risk that wont add much if any at all. (even though I did one on a truck) and although a ***** worked fine.

Not sure how it works everywhere else, but In Cali boat insurance is factored heavily by HP.

Anything above 700HP starts to get expensive and hard to insure. If you are honest about having a 900 HP boat you will pay a heavy premium for this.

What is the max rated rpm on the 700sci blowers and does anyone have a compressor map?

Update:

The stage II 700sci made 820 horsepower.

The new Whipple flame arrestors for this motor and the 600sci are now in the production stage and should be ready for sale in a few weeks.
