Whipple Supercharger Systems - Blown Away

That Ain't No Smog Pump! It's My Supercharger, Man!

By PJ Rentie

Although the goal with this project was to show how the hauler you use to get your show or race car to the events can be made to handle the job better, it should be noted that Whipple has systems for virtually every application. As for the installation, it doesn't require a degree in mechanical engineering, and can be done in your garage using an average selection of tools. It does, however, require attention to details. As with all late-model machines, there is a level of electronic controls and connections that surpasses anything from the "musclecar era." So be aware what wire you're pulling off and from where. On a more positive note, all special tools required for the job are supplied in the kit. Concerning the time it will take to install, give yourself a long weekend to accomplish this task. Something this good has to be earned with a dose of hard work. Once it's finished, though, you'll be able to appreciate your efforts every time you plant your right foot.
