    Whipple 700HP Kit

    After having JDM install the Whipple Supercharger on my 2013 it's like having a new truck. The power is absolutely awesome my only regret is not doing it sooner.

    How much is the average install cost to have it done at a shop?

    I'll let JimIII from JDM answer that question they probably installed more superchargers kits on Raptors than anyone else! The reason I say that is because they offer so many different options to their base Supercharger Kit. They are very competitive with the kits and optional goodies. Where JDM stands alone is after all your hard earned money is spent and your Supercharger is installed that's when they truly shine Jim Sr. is the king of tuning he will do a street tune that gets the most power and best performance with superb drive ability. If you are looking for something that will spine the tiers at launch and chirp the tiers 2nd-3rd &4th with balls to the walls power he can do that too. He is the
    "Raptor Whisperer"
    Give Jim III or Nick a call (732)-780-0770 great guys and will be happy to answer all your questions about installation of the coolest mod you will ever do.
    I'm pretty sure they have a Black Friday sale coming up soon.
    Good luck let us know how you make out ?

    Well depends on the kit but generally with our Whipple 650 package $7395 + 2 days labor and dyno time. Which is about $2500 in our shop. Most customers usually get exhaust, suspension, or other upgrades when installing the blower so that stuff will add to the cost of course but you can figure about $10K to cover the Supercharger job.

    I would keep it stock and run it into the ground in stock motor configuration! I expect I will get a Gen 2 at some point, but don't want the first year of the 10 speed transmission - let them sort that out first.

    Supercharger will be great, but to me not a mid life mod for the truck, just too much stress on things that already have some miles on them, so may alter your reliability.

    Once the new truck is out and established then if you like the new truck, you just tossed $10k out the window on the supercharger, that could be used for modding the new truck.

    I like to do all my mods in the first 5k of the trucks life, so I get to enjoy them start to finish.

    Nice this is here is not bad choice of the 3 you are considering.

    Agree. I recently got into a new truck with a Roush Stage 2 supercharger.
    All I can say is "OUTFRIGGINSTANDING" I would rather have a SC 6.2, mean as hell, than something akin to a rice burner you find on a car. Guarantee, you will not be disappointed.
