That pump comes with the motor (at least the 496's). It goes on the nozzle (little blue colored valve just above it) and you pump it to blow the water out of the engine during cold weather. (not to be used for full winterization applications)

no offense, I am all whipple all the time. I believe in the product and it would be my choice. But...does that picture look busy???
Not the usual works of art I am used to seeing. Or is it the 496 that is busy...

Thumbs up

I think it looks very clean. The 496's are just that busy.

If you think that looks busy, take a stock plastic cover off an engine and see what is hiding below that. The supercharger actually simplifies things on top.

And trust me, after building the kit, it's far more of a work of art than the other stuff

Thanks,
Dustin

Thumbs up Whipple Charged 496 MAG HO !!!!

Well, Im the proud new owner of the first Whipple Charged 496 MAG HO pictured at the top of this thread. The motor is installed in an Advantage 27' Victory.

The motor dyno tested at a little over 600HP and the additional 190HP got me 13 MPH, with 6 lbs of boost. I was running a 22P prop and went up to a 26P Bravo I. I am in the process of getting the 26P labed and expect to another mile or two. The boat currently runs at 73 MPH on GPS @ 5,200 RPM with 50Gal of fuel and 4 people. I have calculated that I am getting about 1.3 MPG.

I had about 70 hours on the motor prior to adding the Whipple and have put on about 20 hours with the new charger. Not only am I happy with the 14 MPH gain, but the hole shot is incredible. This boat now has a completely different personality.

It was a pleasure working with Art, Dustin & everyone at Whipple. This project was a lot of hard work and the end result is a great product. The customer service at Whipple is second to none and when I get a bigger boat and build a bigger motor, I'll Whipple that too !!!!

Thanks Whipple !!!!!!!!!!!!
