Whipple HO intake tube rubs on hood


Recommended Posts

Had the same problem. Fix is to relocate the fuel pressure block.

Shelby performance parts, Shelby fuel pressure block relocation kit , cost is $199.

 

 

We have a winner!

THIS is the correct answer, and why we now stock them for sale: http://www.shelbystore.com/product-p/wfp-463rel.htm

It used to be a "mystery part" that was tough to get through Whipple... now it's easy.

Mine doesn't rub. Amazing considering everything else!

 

 

You most likely already have the Relocation Kit and don't know it.

Shelby usually uses this exact part when doing GT/SC upgrade installs here in Vegas.

Jer,

 

What is the installation process on the relocation kit. Is there a set of instructions online so I know what is involved?

 

I can't imagine that all the Whipple HO kits rub and they didn't offer the solution in the "kit" up front. Seems strange to me /:

I installed the relocation kit for the fuel pressure sending block (Shelby gauge pod). Jer told me about the mystery part before he went to work at SPP. It cost $199 from Whipple at that time.

I have a rubbing problem in my GT500, and was interested in the motor mount swap solution.

 

Are there any negatives to this solution? Can I do it myself in the garage? are their anyother changes that need to be made? How does it effect the drive train angles?

 

Anyone have any answers for me?

It is not really a "consumer" part, we offer it as a convenience, so there are no printed instructions. It is, however, straightforward, and easily installed by a qualified tech (BTW, this is the fuel system, so an "unqualified tech" shouldn't be anywhere near it! LOL....) Whipple does not generally offer this piece or include it in their install kits because it is ONLY an issue when using the Shelby fuel block adapter to hook up a Fuel Pressure gauge. BTW, here's the thread where *I* learned about it a few years ago, should explain it pretty well: http://www.teamshelby.com/forums/index.php/topic/69604-installing-shelby-gauges-with-whipple/?do=findComment&comment=1193506

We've seen no negative effects. It can be done in a garage, two people make it easier. No other changes necessary. Angle is affected a negligible amount. Jer
