Whipple Superchargers

If you’re interested in building your own supercharger packages for kit
to resale to the general public, 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. Available in a complete unit or a “rotor assembly”
for builders own housings.

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. Whipple also has a wide assortment
of drive lengths, pulley combinations and bypass valves for all types of applications.
