What noise does it make? If it's a whine when you get on it... It's normal.

no i know that lol i know it whines lol no its at idle. i just looked it up they said its the taping sound in the supercharger oil pan. nothing to worry about like the guy said. but its still kinda makes me worry. He had the front baring replaced before. the decision is not up to me its my brothers choice and if he wants it then its his money. And he said if he gets it he will join the FRF family on here lol

If it's the old Whipple kit, stock it's about 5-7lbs of boost for warranty and stock bottom end longevity. The same pretty much holds true to factory s/c'd cars and other s/c kits.

your right he said something like that. He ended up passing on it. here is the link to the add that had us interested for a while.

and a pic when he was leaving after we met up with him and the test drive.

lol hell no!! my truck was in so much better condition!! he wanted my keys when i test drove his truck so my brother stayed with my truck with my keys lol ok ill say the cons. cigarette smell interior, front windshield molding coming out on top, tonal cover peeling away, passenger side mirror was broken on the door plastic part, newer tires on the driver side then the passenger side, no tilt, no cruise, dents up and down the truck, scratch's, faded grill,faded bumper. s10 rims #1 wtf.. tint was scratched up. seats and inside so dirty. made my 01 look like a 2010 model compare to that. pics don't do justice. "Pros- supercharger with all out exhaust with headers, and very cold a/c. thats all." guy was very nice but price was little to high for the condition of the truck.

he did and we made him realize that it wasn't worth it. I don't really want a supercharger yea it was so fast but i already get 15mpg they way i drive now. adding that would just get me tickets lol or killed. My 3.0 is fast enough for what i need it for anyway. i don't need a fast toy right now in life lol

i know on some whipples they have gears inside to turn the blades. if they use a straight cut gear in the supercharger instead of helical cut gears it sounds like a lose bolt rattleing inside the supercharger. just from my experience.
