Supercharged in Austin

Anyone running a SC? If so did you get it installed in town? I am looking to get this done this summer but want to look into shops. Haven't decided btw roush or whipple but leaning toward whipple. Thanks

Houston or San Antonio or self install.
I could not find anyone in Austin that had done several Whipple installs that I felt comfortable trusting so I did it myself.
Took one weekend and nights after work in air conditioned garage.
Post up if you find anyone in Austin.

I'm going to do the whipple install in my garage but there are several places headed towards san antonio that I have worked with on previous cars that could definitely take care of you. Henderson performance in new braunfels and lethal performance in Schertz.

Procharger website links to a shop up in Cedar Park. Not sure if they have a dyno. If they do, they might be good a shop to install a Whipple.

Leif Johnson is Ford Racing S/C dealership

https://www.fordperformanceracingparts.com/wheretobuy/


And I think the Ford dealership in Georgetown is Roush.

Lief Johnson wouldnt even give a call back on doing a Whipple so... There is Robert and maybe one other guy there that has done the Roush but the dealer is gonna charge dealer labor rates so figure >$2000 install.

There is one other guy with a shop that hasn't done a Whipple yet but a Roush and a Paxton I think on S550 stangs. Plenty of BRZs too. He asked to look thru my Whipple install manual so hes thinkn about it. If he lines one up I might swing by to see how its going and lend a hand if he hits any snags since I already installed mine. If all goes well we might have an Austin Whipple installer. He's a quality human and I know guys that track Ferraris that trust him to set up their cars for track days.

As he said, consider Katy or Houston. High volume of FI cars there so very experienced installers at reasonable prices cause they can get it done quickly and correctly.
There is Travis at Boostworks and Cody Whitehead at ART which I think is now just Whitehead Motorsport. Both quality humans I would trust my car too.
