    I picked up my new 6 speed HC today and i can barely notice the whine. Honestly it doesn't have as much power as i was expecting. They had to replace my front lower splitter. Wondering if maybe something got jarred loose? Idk. Just looking for some input

    I didn't notice any whine either, when I got my six-speed. When you are driving gently, as per break-in, the supercharger doesn't generate boost, so I am not surprised. But today, I gave it slightly more throttle than I had been, (I am at just 250 miles on it) and finally did hear the famed whine, so I wouldn't worry about it. When you pussyfoot it, the car is very civilized, downright tame. But, when you're done with the break in period, I suspect she'll be whinin', a plenty!

    I thought the same exact thing. I'm at 300 and I can hear the whine getting louder. Sleeping tiger just has to wake up 500!!

    I hear the whine often. And that explains my 16.7mpg at the moment. Even at low speeds I hear it. I babied it for 300 miles but now she's purring just right. I love it when she talks, and I love it when she farts.

    When I finally heard the whine, for the first time, I noticed a significant 'improvement' in the acceleration department; This was still at a rather mild amount of throttle, probably barely enough to even make the supercharger work, so I suspect at wide-open throttle it'll be impressive, even with just the black key fob present. I have been sticking to the black fob, for break in, as I have limited self discipline (hit 76 by accident, during the first 100 miles when it's supposed to go no more than 55mph, and then, after 100 miles on odometer I inadvertently hit 87mph, which I was trying my best to keep it below 70! Can only imagine how badly I'd blow the whole break-in thing, if I had the red key on me and a Mustlag pulled up along side me and revved it!)

    I hit 80 within the first 20 miles. Tough love but 1000 miles later she is still going strong. I live in MD but flew to IN and drove her home. I-70 all the way, with a little of I-68 thrown in. That's 583 miles but what a fun ride it was, even in the constant rain.

    My beastie had supercharger whine from day one. I stayed within breakin guidelines, but my Hellbaby did get faster and stronger as miles added. Now kicka$$ beastie!!!:D
