We hope that you haven't forgotten about Chuck's 2008 GT500...aka "The Monster". It was like kids at Christmas here at the shop the other day when the new goodies arrived for Chuck, in the form of the new 4.0 Whipple Supercharger! Man this thing is huge and we can't wait to see what kind of power it can put down! Enough with the talking..here are some pictures of the blower and the test fit...numbers to come!!












Stay tuned!.....

Yea that was without spraying either just a baseline tune on motor and I believe his previous numbers were with spray so he gained the 20-30 horsepower without spraying.

The auto ate up ALOT of the power, but he shouldn't have any trouble at the track now

prob only lost roughly 40-50hp more with the auto. but the whole reason behind that from what I heard was the reaction times were not good with the manual. without the blower upgrade my guess would be numbers would have been a little lower with existing setup and the auto. its only money lol
