    Leave to some know it all douchebag to come out of the woodwork and be an "expert". Hey Arthur, happy tuning.....LMFAO!

    Here you go Dick Tracy http://www.lysholm.us/superchargers.php

    That's awesome and all.




    Except Lyshom stopped supplying Whipple with head units several years ago when Whipple started building them in house.

    The difference between me and you is that I want to talk shop and know more about the product in the OP. You are here waving your e-peen around. There is only one reply in all of two pages that addresses the blower at hand, every single other one is attacking me.

    Serious question, how do you think you are going to be able to tune the AMG?

    Arthur, you are fighting a losing battle on this forum. I suggest you go to another forum where you can start again but this time, try a little softer approach.

    Maybe one of your chevy guys can figure things out for you.

    You're the one calling it a Whipple, that's like me calling a Mercedes a BMW becuase it's German. I posted a link right to Lysholms twin-screw page, how was that not helpful?

    Lyshom used to make the head units that Whipple bought and stuck their name on.

    Lysholm and Whipple had a falling out and parted ways, they do not do business together anymore.

    Lsyholm partnered with Eaton and now manufacturers the TVS rotors for them as well as the new Vortech VTS series.

    Whipple makes every part in house, I have personally seen the manufacturing center and talked to Art Whipple. They aren't Lyshom parts branded Whipple, they are Whipple parts branded Whipple.

    The link that you posted to Lysholm's page doesn't even have the sizes offered by Weistec.

    I am pretty certain that Weistec uses Lysholm built components, pretty sure I read it in a post straight from the horses mouth, if I was more interested in proving you wrong I would do some research and post a link. If they are not using Lysholm components then I must have dreamed it or something. Considering ecampbell and I both worked with Weistec in helping them develop both their 2.3 Stage 1 plus, Stage 2 as well as both run the Wesitec 3.0L Stage 3 prototype blowers on our cars I think we might have just a little bit more inside knowledge than some peckerwood who spends his days on the LS2 forums....just sayin

    Jim there are some technical developments and changes with the blowers you might not be aware of, you might want to speak to Wesitec direct as I'm not going to say anything.

    You speak to Art Whipple - again you are so impressed with yourself it is astounding. Are you able to get your head through a single door or do you only go through double doors.

    Would you like me to name drop? I bet my car my list is longer and a lot more impressive than yours.

    LOL - JR I was thinking the exact same thing but than I thought no, that is the tuner.

    Once again, I'm not saying these things to fluff my ego, I'm saying them in my defense from the constant attack here.

    I'm not trying to compete with who has done what, I give congratulations to everyone for their success.

    It's great that you have some forced induction V8 experience, ok?

    But you brought any attacks upon yourself due to how you entered the discussion. I mean what did you expect? Just to barge in and start demanding answers then expecting everyone to bow in worship because you supercharged a GM V8?

    Take some personal responsibility here. Enough with the attacks from all sides if you want a technical discussion let's have one then.

    Wow, news to me, serve me up a big portion of crow. The truth is I don't care who makes the blower components, IMO Weistec is the only part of the name equation that matters to me. This guy butts in here acting as if Wesitec is offering an inferior product that is flawed and has much room for improvement. Anyone that has followed M156 aftermarket development should know that Weistec has had a steady flow of superior product offering hit the market on a regualr basis for nealry the past two years, not to mention CARB approval and the first aftermarket blower upgrade for the famed 5.5 M113 powerplant. This DBag does not even own a car with an M156 in it yet and he is already famialr with it's weaknesses, flaws and tuning capabiliites???? I have spent hundreds of thousands of my own money trying to squeeze power out of this powerplant since 2007 not to mention the hundreds of thousands or probably millions that Weistec has spent test and R&Ding and this guy thinks he's just going to pick one up and tinker arouns with it and produce some miricle outcome? have at it bro, hope you pockets are deep LOL.

    Not at all.

    I apologize if I came off that way, I don't feel as though I came in saying look at all the cool $#@! that I have done and saying everyone was stupid or anything of the like. I came in asking questions, I hadn't even mentioned my past right off.

    I'm sure Weistec is exstatic knowing one of their suppliers is divulging confidential information regarding one of it's customers to some Dbag off the street.

    I have never doubted Weistec's product, in fact I gave it praise saying that it used a quality head unit and that Whipple was my favorite bar none. My very first post was not doubting the kit, it was asking for compressor maps so that I could decide which one to buy for my goals.

    Let's call a spade a spade though, the R&D is NOT in the head unit. It's in the application of the head unit to the particular platform. The wheel was not reinvented here, there is no magical wizardy in the supercharger itself.

    Exactly, the blower unit was the easy part, try tuning the ECU /TCU for it and let me know how that goes for you. It's taken years and dozens of tuners world wide to crack these MB ECU's and god foresaken TCU's. If you think you're going to just plug your laptop in and start keying away you're nuts. It has taken Weistec YEARS to get this far. They were the first to offer a FI M156 option, a couple of thier competitors(Xtra) have brough blowers to market that are nearly twice the price with FAR less performace. A few of their competitors even purchase Weistec systems and put their own name on the system.
