    $310? Well now I feel stupid...lol, If I could find one that cheap, I will definitely have one! I've just seen people asking 400 or so for them and assumed thats what they went for. I'll probably post looking for one when I recover from this last big spend on my motor

    I bought my late model off eBay for $130 shipped. I spent 400 on porting and having the rotors recoated,sound ports closed,new coupler and all new bearings and seals. I also bought a mp inlet and 75mm tb. With the fuel system upgrades I have this swap should yield a easy 1.5 seconds off the quarter with my fmic. If you find some stuff used you can go from stock to ported late model with 42# injectors 255lph fuel pump and cai and maf and tb for a little over a grand. Pretty good bang for the buck mods.

    I'd say the late model is great bang for the buck.

    wow.... can you just get a whipple by itself or do you need to buy it as part of a kit for another car like a mustang and sell off the other parts you can't use?

    So do you think I could get a late model blower with a mp inlet without having to upgrade maf, tb, and injectors again since I already have 75MM tb, 76MM maf, and 42# injectors? (My full list of mods is the first post on this thread) because if I don't have to upgrade all of that again, I'll definitely get one! :cool:

    Yeah you'll be fine if you are already tuned for the 42's.

    Sure you can but you have to have a custom intake made along with other custom parts for it to work/fit a supercoupe and that ain't cheap...........

    4 days left on e-bay rite now. currently $150+shipping. As mentioned above better intake will help greatly, as will porting, just adds $$$ if on a budget, stock is still better than early stuff. Also budgeting for solid coupling/snout rebuild is a good plan, not all sellers are honest

    I'd get a 10% JS pulley and see how much boost it makes...if over 15 change the supercharger pulley back to stock (early model) to lower it some. Same parts will be needed when switching over to a late model so you won't be wasting the money. Big advantage to the late model supercharger, is being able to use the much larger MP inlet plenum.
