Is or do you think the Whipple 305 is worth the cost over the standard 6-71 like a Moonyham or Littlefild. Getting close to buying me a new one and trying to make up my mind.

Thats ALOT of money!

I know the look of the roots are f-ing awsome but damn, you could have a whole Procharger setup for that.:smt119

The 305 just looks like a huge version of their Mustang stuff. Which is absolutely worth every penny. I wouldn't be afraid to buy it, if their product is good enough for Ford Racing to use on the Cobra Jet it's good enough for me.

My buddy has a 305 on a sbc. The blower makes huge power, but having trouble cracking heads. It's on alky now, didn't like gas and the heads still aren't happy.

I had that trouble running a lot of boost on my setup. When I went back to a set of good Cast Iron heads thing got a lot better. Whipple says I should gain around 200hp on low boost with the setup I have now.

The twin-screw is WAY more efficient than a roots blower.

Also the 305 does not compare to a 6-71, they are something like a 12-71 if I recall correctly. What combo do you have now? How much boost? Gas or alky?

Gas Running10lb of boost. This is a street car. Whipple says there 305 is right between a 6-71 and a 8-71. Witch would work great for my needs. Car run's in the 9's now but would like just a little more out of it but the BDS I have now is about at it's limit. And if I am going to upgrade to a better blower way not do it right and have room to grow. Not down talking BDS as this blower has severed me well.

CFM wise I believe it falls in that area but it has the power of like a 12-71.

7k just for the blower ,you will have around 8500 when done.There is no question it will make more power than a roots blower ,but you have to look at the cost factor,double the price not worth it 2 me.If i were you i would call steve morris and order a F2 procharger and GET ON THE HAIRDRYER BANDWAGON :smt066 LOL
