2017-2020 Model years transmission is locked, to unlock, you will be required to use the unlocking service from HP Tuners for custom calibration as an added performance advantage. This is not required for proper operation and is not included in the system.
This system is 100% complete, including a HP Tuners MPVI2 handheld programmer and tuning for stock vehicles or those with a catback only, just bolt on and drive! If you have other modifications such as headers, midpipe, camshaft, etc. then look at the Tuner kits.
There are many options available for Whipple Supercharger kits. If you have any questions please email sales@TREperformance.com or call 760-586-5617.
These supercharger kits are the most complete available, including everything needed for installation. This includes all mounting brackets for the blower, pullies, belts, intercooler, all the tubing, piping, fittings and clamps and even oil for the self contained lubricating system. You do not need to make any major modifications or purchase special tools or other parts. Many customers install in their garage or driveway over a weekend.

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 26 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 oversized air-to-water intercooler for unmatched cooling capacity, W175FF Whipple twin-screw supercharger that reaches 99% volumetric efficiency and industry leading power potential. The unique intercooled bypass system offers better acceleration and less than 1hp of consumption during cruising for excellent fuel economy. The system also includes a massive (over 3 times larger than competition) intercooler water reservoir that has over 4 gallons of capacity, aluminum high flow intake manifold and a SCT X4 for the factory ECU and transmission recalibration. While others claim, Whipple Superchargers simply deliver more power per pound of boost than any other supercharger on the market today.
Front Inlet vs. Rear Inlet
The Whipple front feed system is far superior to rear inlet based SC systems for a very simple reason, less inlet restrictions. While some companies make phony claims about how many bends they have, the fact is simple, the front entry systems do not require multiple 90deg bends or one sweeping 180deg bend before the SC inlet, which causes unequal rotor filling and lower volumetric efficiency. For 50-state emissions legal systems, the Whipple front entry system requires 1 less bend (3 to 4) then any rear entry SC. With other cold air intake systems, it's 2 less bends (1 to 3). Others just show pictures of the air tube, but forget to mention the SC inlet which makes 2 90 deg bends, while also restricting plenum volume so they can clear the firewall.
Not all front inlet systems are created equal. As in typical Whipple fashion, the Whipple front inlet system is not restricted by a 93mm inlet system which severely limits your potential power gains. The Whipple SC system uses a unique 112mm round (round flows significantly more then oval or rectangle) inlet for nearly 1800cfm capacity (1200hp). With the Whipple system featuring the stainless steel jackshaft, it also maintains a true high flow system from the filter to the supercharger inlet. Other systems have severe inlet restrictions with the shaft running through the already small inlet path, further restricting airflow and potential power.
Whipple Fuel System
These trucks use the factory fuel system to maintain proper fuel levels at peak power. A unique feature is the pre-casted injector bosses for future upgrades if needed.
