Default Kenne Bell vs. Whipple

So tax season is upon us and I figured I'd put some of my return into a new SC. I'm stuck between wether to go with the Kenne Bell 2.6 or go with a Whipple. I've heard good things about both and just figured I'd get your guys opinion on it. Doesn't the Whipple require an aftermarket hood? I'm not really wanting to do that, so I'm leaning more towards the KB. Any input would be appriciated.

I'm looking to get to about 650 RWHP. I mainly just drive on the street, but go to the track a couple times a year. I just have minor bolt ons right now. Magnaflow catback, BBK X pipe and LT headers, JLT CAI, Accufab TB and plennum. The guy that had the car before me also changed out the pullys. I'm not sure if he had a tune done to it or not. Is there a way I can find out if there is a tune?

Just get a whipple 2.3 and supporting mods and call it done.
You will make about 600ish rwhp which is plenty for a street warrior.

pretty much the same blower with similar gains.

Kb will give you that wicked whine

whipple is silent but from what I saw they typically throw down 15-20 ftlb More than the kb

Don't waste your money on a kb 2.6 it really won't get you much more than a 2.2 will! Get a 2.8h if you wanna run more than 25psi. If not save your self some money get a whipple 2.3 or a kb 2.2 with full exhaust supporting mods you can achieve around 650rwhp on around 22-23psi.

There are plenty of them out for sale dirt cheap. Look in the for sale section there is a 2.2 kb there right now.

Thanks for the info guys. So is it true that with the Whipple, u have to get a cowl hood or cut into the stock hood? I was reading that on another site, but some guys were saying that it would fit under the stock hood.

whipple 2.3 fits under hood, but on the 3.4 if you wanna run lower boost level's then you have to cut a notch in the hood IIRC

yeah with the 3.4 Whipple you can either cut some of the bracing under the hood or put 1/2 inch spacers between the frame and the k member. I just cut the under side of the hood. Not really too noticeable unless your looking for it. plus I don't lift my hood for any one any ways.

whipple 2.3 is the way to go.. if vortech gets there 2.3 out soon, that would work well too.. i have made over 700rwhp with a whipple 2.3 on a cobra... at 625-650, that would keep it in its sweet spot!

email if we can help!

thanks bob
