Over the past couple of weeks, 2024 Ford Mustangs have been arriving to dealerships; for some, they’re getting hit with dealer markups. But for those who have purchased the 2024 Mustang GT, with the 5.0L Coyote V8 engine, and still have some extra cash, there’s already a big upgrade on the way: a Gen 6 Whipple 3.0L Supercharger.
2024 Ford Mustang Whipple Supercharger Kit: Details
The new Whipple supercharger uses parts from its S550 predecessor. However, some modifications have been added to the part, including a new design to add massive power to the model while working with the fantastic dual intake and throttle body setup of the pony car. That said, the supercharger for the previous generation Mustang set new records. With Whipple constantly striving to upgrade and innovate its creations and the addition of not one but two air intakes, this thing is bound to have some impressive performance numbers, even if they haven’t been revealed yet. Though if the last-gen unit is anything to go off of, or if we look at the Whipple booster in the current Ford F-150, we can expect around 700 horsepower or more. Plenty of ponies to pounce on other road predators.
According to Lethal Performance, the new Gen 6 rotor design and profile has an updated bearing plate and unique inlet port shape for increased rotor filling. That should result in lower temperatures and increased airflow throughout the RPM curve. On top of that, the 2024 Ford Mustang Whipple Supercharger kit will use Bosch 55lb/hr fuel injectors, the same injectors found in the 2018-2023 Mustang kits. Another crossover part on the 2024 Mustang kits is the intercooler, which has a dual-core, dual-pass setup with two 3/4″ inlets and outlets.
As seen in the 2024 Ford Mustang supercharger images, the kit uses Ford’s new dual air box and dual air filter setup, which merges and connects to a single-throttle body at the supercharger entry. Of course, we must remember that Ford locked up the PCM for the 2024 Ford Mustang, so tuning the engine for the supercharger will be a hurdle, right? Wrong; thanks to Whipple’s great relationship with Ford, the tuner has been granted the ability to tune the PCM for their supercharger kits using a new Whipple Tomahawk flash tool. Whether you opt for the Stage 1 or Stage 2 kits, both come with a 50-state-legal calibration, which should offer peace of mind when applying this amazing part to your brand-new Ford Mustang. Finally, it doesn’t look like there is any pricing information regarding the kits yet, but it’s safe to say it’ll be around $8,000, which seems to be the standard price range for something like this.
