Bought the last Whipple 3.3l SC from Dragon Race engineering off ebay last night. Heard about it and had to jump on it.
She ain't pretty but with a paint coat she will be.

Good Ballsy move! I spoke with them today, as a matter of fact. Discouraged me from buying Whipple unless I'm good at doing that kind of stuff myself (which I'm not). So I take it you will be doing this install by yourself?

Yup, I'll install it then tow it in for a tune.. I shouldn't have to worry about ever running out of blower now.

Wow, this'll keep you busy for a while. VERY nice!

You know, you could be the first to put a Whipple Install into the faq.

Just piecing together some things for my fuel needs. I've paid for the head unit, and on Monday I'm going to order the rest, I had to wait for them to send me an invoice. I'm going with 60lph injectors,crank pinning kit, gonna grab 2 different pulleys, intercooler, ls3 maf, 4" tubing, throttle body relocation kit, and the custom intake tube they offer.
For fuel needs I'm thinking Aeromotive 340 Stealth In-Tank Fuel Pump, racetronix wiring harness, and Kenne bell BAP (for later mods)

Sounds like someone's been doing some homework. Nice list!

Yes sir. Will also be ordering up either some Aero force guages or a DashDAQ with corresponding sensors to monitor fuel pressure, air fuel ratio, boost and IAT temps. probably in about a month or so, money is all of a sudden getting tighter ;)

Definition: ZONKED - being or acting as if under the influence of alcohol or drug: HIGH

:tisk: No Paint No Paint No Paint . . repeat after me . . NO PAINT

I agree with stepside, UNIQUE. your accent colors are now yellow. It's in the flag. Hit your brake calipers with yellow, all good.
