    Holy moly that's one impressive shopping list! Welcome to the Whipple family my friend :headbang:

    May I ask what is the UPR check valve you mentioned? Is it different from the one that comes on the catch can or is it the oil fill breather they just released?

    Time to let that wallet of yours cool down lol.

    Original post updated to reflect the new mod list.

    Appreciate it man! I am really looking forward to getting the rest of the packages, so I can get this install going!

    I'm no stranger to the Whipple family...I was one of the very first with a Whipple 2.9L on a Coyote.

    The Billet Check Valve was an option on the UPR site. I'm not sure if it comes with all of the kits you may find elsewhere. However, all of them I've seen have had the check valve.

    I'd love to let this wallet cool down, but since I'm still waiting for the rest of the stuff to arrive, I keep finding things to order.

    Today I ordered a painted radiator cover and new painted coil covers. :headbang:

    Ordered an ATI Balancer too.

    The optional billet check valve is different vs the one shipped with the kit... If i recall.. it's a 0-35 psi vs 0-100 psi capability.. IDK what this means..

    I do know, I had a strong scent of oil on deaccel, and this cured it.

    Tomorrow marks 2 years of ownership, and as luck would have it, the Whipple gets delivered tomorrow as well!

    Amazing build!!!! The whipple is icing on the cake.
    Curious about the MGW Compact Race Spec Shifter. Looks like you've had it installed for a while. What are you impressions? Which model and height did you go with?

    Yeah...no room under there to do so. Don't worry, they are being swapped out.

    T-Bolt Clamps are awesome, but on this oval throttle body, it's not ideal.

    MGW, man I love it. I always have loved George and the team at MGW. They make an incredible shifter, and their focus is doing it right and not doing it first!

    I bought the standard height and standard throw. It's perfect for me. Best mod!!

    It's been a while since I've updated this thread. I'm currently waiting for the upgraded tensioner from Whipple, and I'm still working on the tune with Lund. It's coming out great! Those guys are incredibly responsive, and always get back with revisions right away!
