^ +1, have you built the lower end of the engine, or are you going to? you need forged rods and pistons at a minimum (should add a crank also) for more than about 12lbs of boost.

that's definitely not your typical whipple kit. Are you getting it used? 18lbs is a lot. Is that going on a stock motor? you may want to also add a fuel pump to that setup. How are you tuning it?

Yes it was used for 1000 miles..I'm not going to run more then 8# it just came with what is listed. I'm getting the Ford Racing M-9407-GT05 fuel pump. Also I'm going to have Injected Engineering do the install and tuning.

Cool! That's the fuel pump that came with my kit. I'm guessing the 10 rip kit comes with a stronger tensioner, otherwise you should get one of those too. Also consider getting an oil separator (aka catch can). Get spark plugs too. Awesome, you're going to have fun with that. I just installed mine about a week ago and it's a blast. Way too easy to spin the wheels.

congrats on the blower.
seeing you have the steeda 10 rib kit, you'll need another bigger SC pulley instead for the stock block.
the 3.5" is rated at 10 psi for the gen 2 Whipple.
for 8 psi, you may want something a tad bit larger.
HT0 plugs?

I'm having the 10 rib removed and replacing it with WHIPPLE-PULLEY0507GT - 3.625" 8-9 psi. Injected Engineering supplies the spark plugs and coolant, but I will definitely check on the oil separator.

Anything else you can think of that I need to add to my list of parts?

If they're removing the 10 rib then I'd put on a stronger tensioner. The guys at Injected Engineering can confirm this but, I think with the 3.625 pulley you'll want a 90mm tensioner and 90mm idler pulley. The stock idler pulley is 90mm. The stock tensioner is 76mm so I recommend getting the Thump Racing tensioner part number PM-1002-90 which comes with a 90mm. The belt size I believe would be 124.7
