Sorry, I am not interested in trading. Looks like a neat supercharger though!

Thanks. Mine is off of a an engine that was in a Barko 160 Log Loader. I've seem them used on small block Chevy's and I think someone makes an adapter kit and drive unit to do this.

Your Whipple is going to be a good deal for someone. An asking price of $2,000 seems very reasonable considering this is the most complete kit I've seen. Someone with a 2001/2002 PT needs to jump on this and make a deal.

Drooling a little...

Showed it to the wife, explained the importance of owning it, and reminded her of my upcoming birthday and the '01 PT that needs put back together.

Don't think she "got it" though...

Maybe show her this and then have her think about how Cinderella would go if it were watched backwards.

I checked into it to get it sent to Canada but the costs were just to high after all said and done. Canadian dollar is terrible right now $ 2000.00 us would be around $700.00 more plus shipping ups with brokerage on $2000.00 would be around a extra $500.00 plus 5% sale tax $160.00. Then getting that part made according to Roger would be just over $150.00 us and that's just a guess Probly more here. Then I would have to pay for someone to do the install for me. So I'd be looking at around Just over $3500 Canadian and that's just a conservative guess. Here I could buy 2 older NA Pts for that, so the wife said NO! We have a 2003 GT with the stage 1 and all the upgrades but I blew the motor with too much horse after I put a BWS in it around 330hp to 340 and a used motor plus install was going to be roughly $3100 (well that's what they told me ) and I could buy another GT for that much here;.Please don't jack the thread about my blown motor that's whole different topic.
Point is way to much for a Canadian to buy. But I still would love to get it but in the end the wife is the BOSS lol Great deal for you Americans though I think.

The only real value to having a Whipple is the looks. There is not any reasonable way to make much more power from it. Any mildly upgraded GT model PT can equal or exceed with less then the amount of the kit itself.

Yes there has been at least 2 attempts at increasing the engines output by upgrading experiments using the whipple that I have been a part of. Neither worked. One was a custom drive gear. The other was via ECU calibrating.

Now as I mentioned an interesting project would be to twin charge a GT PT cruiser. This would allow for total PCM calibration adjusting which would overcome the whipples shortcoming by itself. However even doing this it would still be a novelty because the 2K spent on a GT can yield more reliable power gains.

This Whipple kit will significantly increase horsepower and torque over a stock naturally aspirated engine. If it was only for "looks" I doubt that people would have purchased these for $3500+ when new. I tend to agree that a factory turbocharged PT Cruiser GT with mild upgrades could match or exceed a "Whippled" PT, but so what? I personally own a non-turbo PT Cruiser as do many others who use this forum. The performance of the GT model does not apply to me.

The Whipple kit increases output to 226 hp and 244 lb-ft torque. How much more do you need? Link provided to Motor Trend's review of the Whipple charged PT below.

The twin charger idea is interesting, but it would take a lot of time and effort to say the least. I think the type of person who would consider purchasing this kit would not care that $2K could be better spent in other ways or yield more reliable power gains on a GT Cruiser. Let's face it, if it were really only about power, I think most of us who drive PT Cruisers would have moved on to other vehicles by now. The Whipple kit appeals to me because it is somewhat rare/unique and it provides significant power gains (especially low RPM torque). I also love the fact that it is a genuine Lysholm, twin-screw design. If it does not sell, I will eventually install it on my car. I imagine that the satisfaction of installing the kit and the joy of driving a supercharged PT would outweigh the fact that there would be other drivers on the road who spent less to go faster.

Roger I think you missed the points in my responses? I have worked on 2 and have friends that have had them. One of the ones I helped with was a local shop that does DYNO Testing that I also do volunteer work and have DYNO'd now hundreds of cars so I know what the RW power increases are. I also know very well all the short comings.

As far as what we all might mod... well some friends consider my PT a step back words from what I have done in the past and currently own regarding Performance cars.
I rather like my ET slip at the end of a race day from my PT.

A twin charger set up is actually very easy and cost very little if you start with a GT PT. The reason I said this is to spark some interest in your Whipple.

all in all The whine of a blower is music to the ears..
