If you re interested in building your own supercharger package, there is no better supercharger than a Whipple Twin Screw Compressor. OEM manufactures utilize positive displacement superchargers due to their incredible throttle response and drive-ability of a big cubic inch motor. When building a system for the consumers, you must provide a very broad power ban with a high peak horsepower level, only the screw compressor can give you this. This is due to the high adiabatic (up to 80%) and volumetric efficiency levels (up to 99.9%).
The Whipple screw compressor is the latest generation, durable and dependable performance-enhancing item ever designed for either low boost or high boost levels. The screw compressor is by far the best supercharger available today; it s the only supercharger to provide a positive displacement design for maximum low-end torque as well as high efficiency for maximum top-end horsepower.
No other supercharger in the world can offer the same unique benefits. Centrifugals and turbos have tremendous lag time during shift points, on-off throttle and off the line boost. Roots-type superchargers have been proven to not be very efficient, especially at higher boost levels. Whipple Superchargers has a variety of screw compressors for all types of applications, anywhere from a 100 cubic inch compressor to the 510 cubic inch compressor.

Since its inception in 1987, Whipple Superchargers has been at the forefront of all new innovations in supercharging. More specifically, Whipple Superchargers is the pioneer of the twin-screw superchargers on internal combustion engines. As a pioneer of the screw compressor market, Whipple’s dedication to innovation, diligence, and great attention to detail has resulted in a better American-made product for the highly competitive performance industry.
Founded by Art Whipple and located in Fresno, California, the family-owned and operated business has continued to thrive with groundbreaking products, unrivaled customer service, and a true commitment to staying ahead of the competition. Art Whipple has always been regarded as a true innovator and enjoyed a very successful racing career as owner and chief of Top Fuel Funny Cars and Dragsters, in addition to several other forms of racing like circle and drag boats. As a drag racer, Art Whipple has achieved multiple MPH and ET national records, and won Funny Car at the Winternationals and famed NHRA U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis. He used his extensive racing experience to go against the grain and develop the twin-screw supercharger. While it featured a very efficient design, it was expensive and not well known in the United States. After successfully adapting to numerous GM and Ford engines, history was made as supercharging forever changed.
Whipple Superchargers has become one of the most respected and trusted aftermarket supercharger brands on the market. It is also the top choice of Ford and General Motors for their own aftermarket needs. The company currently leads development in the performance realm and is the only U.S.-based manufacturer of the twin-screw supercharger. While competitors cut corners and compromise, Whipple continues to exceed customers’ expectations and dominate the industry. Whipple Superchargers boast advanced engineering and a far superior design that is unmatched at this time.
Whipple Superchargers’ positive displacement twin-screw design has the highest efficiency of all superchargers on the market, including centrifugal and roots. The unique design also delivers the largest power gains across all RPMs. Other benefits include increased performance, impressive strength and durability, superior longevity, low noise levels, unmistakable industry-leading fit and finish, Marine-approved rotor coating, and 100,000-mile oil change intervals.
As time goes on, Whipple has ventured outside their supercharger manufacturing to create products for modern turbocharged vehicles. A great example of this is their intercooler and Stage 1 Power Kit for the EcoBoost Raptor. There's no sense supercharging a vehicle which is already turbocharged. Whipple has also ventured into the world of cold air intakes for a handful of Ford applications.
If you are ready to unleash the full power potential of your vehicle, look no further than Whipple Superchargers. You will immediately feel the difference with impressive horsepower and torque gains, and a tantalizing sound that is sure to satisfy.
Vivid Racing carries an extensive lineup of Whipple products for a wide range of vehicles, which includes cold air intakes, intercoolers, power kits, and superchargers.
