vmp 2.3 vs whipple 2.3
I know there is prob a thread out there on this topic but here it goes. I currently have a whipple 2.3 making 608hp on 93 @ 17pds. Would i pick up more with the vmp 2.3.

I don't think so, from what I've read/seen the VMP blowers on a street tune with a little more boost make similar HP numbers, and a little more torque..
My 2.3 Whipple makes 598/573 (that with cats, and stock manifolds, stock TB, and inlet), so I really don't think it would benefit me at all to go through swapping the blower, retuning, for marginally more torque. Seems like a lateral move for 2.3 Whipple owners, or 2.2/4KB owners?
Maybe I'm missing something, but making the same power with less boost on a TS seems to make sense to me..2004 Torch Red Vert (732whp/640wftlbs)

No point in going to a very similar blower. Step up to a 2.9L Whipple and be done with it.

I agree that it is a lateral move at best if you already have a 2.3 Whipple, but if going from an Eaton, it is a great option!
