Unlike its smaller brother, the Whipple 2.9 is not set up to seal with an O-ring. As such, Jesse applies sealant to the FRPP lower manifold. After letting it setup just a bit, Jesse dropped on the new blower, bolted it up, and reinstalled the same induction and throttle body that were on the 2.3-liter blower.
