BEST AFTERMARKET SC


Recommended Posts

Keeping cost / drivability / reliability and performance in mind; which is the bang for the buck . I want a stock replacement with no engine lowering ; etc. Also who has the best price on either?If my svt dealer does the install ; how many hrs. is reasonable to charge. All info is appreciated. Thanks . 2 months before the car comes out of winter storage.

 

1: TVS 2: KB 3 : WHIPPLE 2.9 VS. 3.4

This is an easy one, the Whipple 550, but you picked the the wrong car :hysterical::hysterical:

 

Even with the GT500 I would stick with the Whipple

 

 

Wrong car ??

It really depends on what your looking for.

 

TVS Ups:

Easy install. 5 hrs at the dealer tops, or 3 hrs if you do it yourself.

OEM look and drivability

Warranty (only 12/12 if dealer installs but still something)

No supporting mods needed (Drive shaft, fuel pump upgrade, etc.)

TVS downs

Limited power compared to the twin screws (Still good though)

2.9 Ups

Monster power

Greater potential than TVS

2.9 downs

More difficult install than TVS (dealer will charge at least 8 hrs)

Need supporting mods (at least a one piece drive shaft)

No warranty (Except from Whipple)

 

I didn't list the KB or 3.4 because you would need hood or engine lowering modifications

 

Hope this helps

I LOVE my KB...I didn't have to lower the engine OR get a new hood...just trim the underside of the hood...not a big deal.

CANADA GUY,

I went with the Whipple 2.9.

 

1. you can install it yourself (but it is harder to install than the TVS)

2. cost less or the same as the SVT (but you get more power)

3. no modifing or changing of your hood

 

I bought mine from Lethal Performance http://www.lethalperformance.com/2010-shelby-gt500-supercharger-upgrades-whipple-2-9l-kits-c-5711_7530_7532_7533 Ask for Matt he'll hook you up.

It seems like once you perfect the "driver mod", you can have the warranty, fit/finish of stock with the TVS and at the same time get excellent quarter mile times provided you have traction. Not to mention you wouldn't need to modify anything on your car except for a tune (common denominator anyhow). I would think with much more rwhp than what the TVS provides, you would need tons of track time and supporting mods to get all that power to work for ya. Of course I am speaking with a bias towards TVS because that's what I chose....STILL trying to get this thing to hook up.
