Whipple Superchargers just announced a new way to make your Hellcat even more Hellcattier. The company released details regarding the new Whipple Gen 5 supercharger system coming soon for all Stellantis vehicles equipped with a supercharged 6.2L Hellcat engine.
Whipple claims its new 3.0L Gen 5 Twin-Screw blower represents “never heard of power potential compared to previous supercharger designs,” which is a mighty claim to make. Compared to the 2.9L Gen 4 system, the Whipple Gen 5 shares virtually no parts.
According to the company, its new 3.0L Gen 5 supercharger can offer capacity gains of 300 hp compared to the stock Hellaphant 3.0L supercharger, and closer to 500 hp capacity over the Hellcat’s 2.4L supercharger.
Part of what lets the Whipple Gen 5 supercharger perform so well is the patent-pending dual-pass, dual intercooler technology. The inverted design allows for the incorporation of dual oversized intercooler cores each measuring 2.125” thick. There’s also an optional high flow cold air intake system.
The company claims its new cooling methodology allows the intercooler to achieve twice the amount of charge air cooling compared to any other supercharger available today.
Of course, the big reason the new Whipple Gen 5 blows so well is the new 3×4 billet rotor combination, a change from the company’s conventional 3×5 rotor.
The Gen 5 billet supercharger rotors are much stronger than the stock Hellcat’s cast rotors which are prone to failure under high RPM operation. Whipple also says the design of the billet rotors contribute to a higher efficiency level over the entire RPM range, better sealing, and a cooler charge air temperature compared to the OEM Hellcat engine kit.
Whipple says porting isn’t required to make big power, and that the Gen 5 system integrates with the stock fuel rail, stock injectors, stock TMAP sensors, and works with stock or aftermarket belt and balancer combinations.
Oh, and there will be custom colors available. Obviously.
