Any reliable information out there regarding the FRPP/Roush TVS 2650 front-feed blower being available in a kit for the 15-17 GT, or is it purely 18 and up?

VMP will have a bolt on kit for the 2015-2017. Early reports are $3999, though.

Isn't the VMP design still a rear-feed housing though? That price has to be for an upgrade, the whole kit should be around $7k.

so far anything that fits in the valley of the 2018 should fit in the valley of a 2011-2017(which actually have more room since they don't have DI rails).

The pulley set up should be the same too since all the accessories are in the same locations. The chassis didn't change so the heat exchangers should bolt up to the crash bar just like they do now.

Yes lethal or whipple cant remember which one said the inverted gen5 blower fits the gen2 2015-2017 cars which makes me wonder how long will it take for someone to try a

Boss or Sniper or CJ (doubt itll fit witbout worse clearance than the 2015/2017 cars) or gt350 manifolds on the 2018 cars. :shrug:

those manifolds will fit the engine but might not clear the hood or be as beneficial since the 18manifold seems to be holding power to 7500rpm as it is

Given how well the 2.3L Roush kit has sold for the 15-17 cars, I think FRPP would be missing the mark not to offer the bigger blower in a kit for the earlier 6G cars. Either they do, or someone else will (or should, at least).

Unless I got a screaming deal on an older (still new) 2300 kit, I'm definitely going with an Eaton 2650 rotor based blower, and would greatly prefer front feed if possible, and honestly I just like the looks of the Roush.

This one? The description for the blower kit just says 2018.
