Default Whipple VS JDM
I have the gen 2 stage 3 whipple set up on my 2014. It seemed pretty mellow and had a weird surging issue so I drove down to whipple and gave them my truck explained these issues and a few others. Tuner did his thing and sent me home.
Truck def had more power (advanced timing) but shifting was nasty it stayed in first gear for ever and I swear it felt like 30seconds (IN my limited knowledge this is what will blow oil gears. I know you sheep have your ideas) the truck would also clunk about 4-5mph if going slow. I actually made the truck stop shifting had to turn off in the middle of traffic. After that I never drove the truck hard again and called whipple. The tuner said it is what it is nothing we can do.
Lmao yea right I called JDM and talked to Jim Jr. He wanted me use the ford TB 78lb injectors and his tune. I had the TB already so bought the injectors and tune and waited.
Just installed it all and the storyís you read are all legit the shifting is exactly whatís itís supposed to be like and no more surging.

My advice to anyone going whipple route donít buy their TB and donít even waste your time with their tune just call JDM I wouldnít doubt a few HP is lost from the TB but drivability is way more important then 5hp for a daily driver truck.

I typed all this out on my phone and I canít spell so if thereís mistake my bad.

Thank you. I know you like Whipple but they really just didn’t give a shit about me. They way to busy just blew me off.

I have no issues at all With the JDM tune so I can’t tell you if they are any better.???? But I don’t have a lot of miles on it yet either. The major issues are gone 100% for sure.

Good to hear. I ordered a gen 2 stage 3 kit thru JDM and it should be shipping any day now. Going to have a local shop do the install along with a kooks exhaust. Very hopeful that it will have close to the same "driveability " as it has now.

So- what do you think of your S/C 6.2L now that it actually runs and shifts right?

Canít beat it. I still want it faster but not sure Iím up to the liveronis (sp?) full 6.6 motor.
Iíve never owned a car/truck this long and I actually still like it. Iíll prob put a wrap on it soon to keep me interested. I was doing normal driving today and it acts like a factory stock truck other then you hear the SC you wouldnít even know. JDM really has the driveabilty nailed just wish the whipple
TB wasnít so choppy im sure it had more power then the Ford TB JDM wants you To run.


2020 Iíll be looking to new raptor if they step it up or Iíve seen Raptor body kits on diesels who knows Iím weird i might just do the 6.6

Was super impressed on how spot on their tune was on the first and only try.
Shifting, idling, dd duties and wide open, truck so far has been flawless.

I'm really surprised Whipple has issues with their tune. They are in tight with Ford- I'd not be surprised if Ford's cal teams get in on the S/C'ed Whipple tunes since Ford warranties Whipple/FRPP blower installs through their dealers.
