Whipple Soon to Offer Jaw Dropping 3.8L Gen 5 Supercharger For Hellcat, Coyote, and GM’s LT Engines

For those who like to make a little bit more power than stock (and by a little we mean potentially a lot), companies like Whipple Superchargers exist to fill that need. Over the years, they’ve made all sorts of crazy combinations for whatever your performance preference might be. Recently, they added another choice to the stable for America’s big three.

Originally, in a post made to Instagram, the company announced its fifth generation of 3.8-liter superchargers for v8 powered vehicles including Chevy, Ford, and Dodge. Well, they officially announced the upcoming Ford offering. The others took a bit of digging to discover but they’re coming as well.

Naturally, power enhancement is going to depend on a variety of different factors. However, early indications point to as much as the 900 horsepower mark for a Coyote powered Mustang.

In the post made to Instagram, the company teased “It’s coming… The ALL-NEW 3.8L GEN 5 Whipple Supercharger System for the 2011-2020 Coyote and 2020 Shelby GT500!”

-New patent pending dual intercooler for improved efficiency⠀
-New high flow fittings, dual in, dual out, 12an and 16an⠀
-New CFD based inlet design for greatly improved efficiency⠀
-New rotor inlet shape for increased airflow⠀
-New tilted throttle angle for increased airflow⠀
-New, higher flow lid for improved cylinder distribution⠀
-Increased runner length for increased torque/throttle response⠀
-New Whipple rotor profile⠀
-Increased diameter vs length for optimum efficiency⠀
-Updated front pulley and bearing design⠀
-With or without race port⠀

 

One might notice that there is only a mention of the Ford options that come as a bolt-on kit one of which could take the Coyote to 900 horsepower. However, Whipple may have given out a few more details in regards to other options as well.

In the comments, we learn that there will also be an option for the new generation 3.8L to be bolted to the Hellcat engine that comes with a 2.4L blower in stock trim. They also teased an option for Chevrolet’s LT4 found in cars like the Camaro ZL1 1LE and C7 Corvette Z06. As much as Whipple might be magic workers, they didn’t mention anything for the C8 just yet even though we’re more than excited to see what the future holds for that architecture.
