Default Has anyone installed a whipple supercharger on a 496?

Any advice? What kind of speeds? Any upgrades to the motor? I have a stock 496 HO, Bravo 1, 26 foot boat, with a step haul. How was the install?

Here is the link for the one I'm looking at?

No personal experience but from what I've read, the internals wont handle it for long

Ray at Raylar is your man. He has done many of these and makes kits for such.

did you do anything with the engine? What about pistons? How fast were you running before the whipple? How was the Install?

Motor is stock besides the injectors and what ever else comes with the kit all the work got done to the boat at the same time and whipple was put on motor at time of install so I dont have any before or after numbers.

12mph Gain on a 28 Nordic. Whipples are the best superchargers out there. Period.

PQJACK - What Prop are you Running on that Laser? Do you have hydraulic steering? I have a 98' PQ laser w/ 502 & thinking of putting a procharger that i have on it this winter. Only worry is about that kind of speed w/o hydraulic steering.

A guy on my dock had a couple of whipples installed on his 496's. He literally blew up three times and lost a season and a half due to downtime before he gave up on the idea. If you have money to burn maybe you get lucky and it holds up for a while - but as others have said the 496's were not made with internals designed to hold up under supercharging. I'll bet the people who make a living selling the kits will say different - see if they stand behind the final product (entire engine) with a warranty. That should tell you all you need to know.
