Not sure but with no pricing available I'm sure it does come with a empty bank account.:yes:

That IS awesome. Blue is the right color. I've been drooling over this but I can't get my money tree to bloom. :(

Dayumn...thats some serious power. Do they make any turbo kits for a 454?

I'm working on getting a price on the 525 kit. The 525 Whipple kits are down to $9-12 k and include remapping. There would be so much more to do it right though; Including a drive upgrade. I would guess that turbo kit is about $22k.... I'm just dreaming here you know.....for future consideration..... :)

While we're talking about it, anybody know what one of those setups does to rebuild intervals? (10% cut, 30% cut, etc?)

My guess is if used like it should be (in the boost a lot) you'll be rebuilding at the same interval (200-ish hours) but doing a more extensive rebuild instead of just a top end rebuild.

Been happy with my Whipple, the whine is pretty cool too :thewave:
I do think the turbo's are neat and give alternate options, for most of us with the Classics the engine compartments are pretty tight, I like the simplicity of the Whipples, very clean look IMO course I'm biased, there's also some nice N/A offerings coming down as additional options for bigger power.

The Whipple kit is what I have been looking at for possible distant future upgrade but this new turbo kit looks awesome. It would fit my engine since I already measured :). I would just have to move the fire extinguisher. No hood scoop would be needed. The kit is still in development and they hope to be priced around $12k. I don't think that will be possible.

You have the side mount Whipple?

Nope, mine didn't take up anymore height than the factory intake, only about 3" forward for the added pullely.
