Since 1987, Whipple Superchargers™ have been the pioneers and leaders of twin-screw supercharging. Whipple was the first to bring positive displacement technology to fuel injected, emissions legal GM applications. With over 34 years of GM twin-screw supercharging experience, Whipple’s team have now engineered the most powerful intercooled twin-screw SC system available today for your GM LT1 direct injected engines. With all the latest technology, the all new Whipple system makes more power than any other positive displacement supercharger system on the market giving you tire frying, neck whipping power that will give you a grin from ear to ear. The new Whipple system is 100% complete and is designed for stock engines but has enough capability to work with heavily modified engines.

The all-new system features Whipple’s massive patented dual air-to-water intercooler cores, dual pass technology for unmatched cooling capacity. 2 intercooler cores and the air passes through each core twice! Couple that with the all new oversized, dual pass heat exchanger and the highest flowing intercooler pump of any supercharger system to give uncompromised cooling and power capacity.

The Gen 5 supercharger system boast the record setting, championship winning 3.0L rotors that has pushed supercharging further than any other positive displacement supercharger. The Gen 5 features an intercooled bypass system that reduces tip-in knock while improving throttle response. The massive 112mm inlet fits nearly any throttle body for all your performance needs. 

The Whipple system features a HP Tuners RDT flash tool and calibration, giving you a safe yet powerful calibration that is 50-state legal, 3-bar GM LT4 TMAP sensor, new spark plugs, high flow air filter, adjustable 6-rib billet belt system and all the necessary hardware for easy installation. 

Each system is available in standard textured black finish or any custom color option (Whipple Exclusive), allowing you to customize the engine compartment for that show finish. While others claim, Whipple Superchargers simply deliver more power per pound of boost than any other supercharger on the market today.
