Gen 5 HP 3.0 litre supercharger

  • New, patent pending, dual pass, dual core intercooler system for increased cooling capacity

  • New dual core has increased water flow capacity for increased cooling efficiency

  • Increased intercooler size for more volume and increased surface area

  • High flow short length runners for increased torque and air velocity

  • New supercharger lid with increased plenum and shape for lower pressure drop and improved performance

  • Intercooler bypass system for cooling whether low, medium, or high load while operation for increased performance and reliability

  • Oversized heat exchanger to keep intercooler system near ambient conditions

  • New Gen 5 supercharger housing with improved shape for increased performance

  • 55lb/hr Bosch fuel injectors for all the necessary fuel flow required

  • Largest intercooler system on the market, featuring patent pending technology

  • No other upgrades required, just massive power right out of the box, works with stock 80mm throttle

  • Front entry Gen 5 W185ax (3.0 litres/3000cc) Whipple twin‐screw supercharger that significantly outperforms competitions 2.3L and 2.65L roots‐type systems

  • Gen 5 supercharger features new 3x4 rotor combination for increased RPM capacity, large diameter for increased airflow and small leak path, increased helix for optimal sealing

  • 3.0L is 13% larger than 2.65L roots‐type allowing lower power draw and lower discharge temps to flow the same amount of air (more power to the rear wheels)

  • Oversized Crusher™ 150mm inlet for maximum airflow capacity and minimal rotor cavitation

  • Inverted design allows for oversized intercooler core compared to other smaller intercooler cores giving Whipple lower air charge temps which allows more boost and timing to be run on pump 98 octane fuel

  • Massive air‐to‐water aluminium bar‐plate intercoolers (over 55% larger than some competition) offer more cooling than any other positive displacement system available, nothing comes close

  • Massive oversized aluminium intercooler reservoir (over 7.5 litres) holds more than double any competitor’s IC water system allowing longer more consistent power levels vs. competition

  • High flow intercooler pump, nearly double the flow of the standard units’ others use

  • Whipple Superchargers massive oversized intercooled air‐bypass system for industry leading reduction of burst knock and incredible fuel economy

  • Exclusive 3x4 rotor combo for significant increase in airflow under the curve than less efficient 4x4 roots

  • Extra plenum volume below intercooler core for far less pressure drop and better use of the increased surface area of the massive intercooler core

  • More boost at the "hit" than any other twin‐screw

  • Flat torque curve for incredible acceleration

  • Fits under factory hood with no modification

  • No cutting or grinding on the engine block

  • No internal modifications required

  • Plug and play wiring with male and female connections

  • Proven 6‐rib belt system with heavy‐duty spring‐loaded tensioner and adjustable idler system
