I'm seriously considering an intercooled whipple kit in the near future, but I want to know how much of a handling detriment those of you who have whipples have noticed. Is the extra weight on the front end very noticeable and how much does it take away from the handling balance? Or is the power gain worth it? I would probably be tuning it for somewhere in the neighborhood of 420-440whp since I don't want to upgrade the internals at this time. Any input is appreciated. Also if anyone can post what the actual weight increase with an HO whipple kit that would be helpful.
FWIW: I remember recently reading that the typical twin screw adds about 75lbs.
I've noticed no significant difference in handling with the Saleen
