This brings me back to Thermo 1 class i took

A whipple would be my first choice of the blowers listed. If you want shear horsepower PSI is also an excellent choice. With a PSI the blower builds boost almost instantly. They are costly. I have built up to 1600 HP with them on a 557 cu.in. Chevrolet @ 15 lbs of boost. As far as a roots style blower The Blower Shop and BDS build very good blowers also. It al depends on what Horsepower range you are building in. I have also just become a dealer for Procharger , and have a few projects in the works. MAS BOOST!

per post 65....when whipple and psi came on the scene in the mid 90s...the results were amazing..if you didnt have one of these blowers YOU COULD NOT WIN in nhra..nhra put limits on them and would check your overdrive pully...of coarse we were making 50psi of boost at the finish line....wow 50psi
whipple technology changed the marine market

If sterlings whipple motors make 1550 and the PSI motors make 1550, why do all of the record boats have PSI's? Making 16-17lbs of boost for a PSI is nothing. I guess you don't see people in top alcohol using quad rotor whipples. I know that lysholm builds another screw blower that is compable to the PSI. I believe Race-Crafters uses them on their motors.

I believe the Sterling quads made 1630 for speed racer but were detuned to 1550. But can be turned up if need be. Also most of the record boats were run before the quads got popular, and there has been a major shortage. Like none delivered in almost a yr. Not saying one is better than the other, just something to think about.
