With over 10,000,000 units sold, it’s safe to describe the Ford Mustang as a popular muscle car. And like with any popular vehicle, the Mustang is backed by an extensive aftermarket supplied by the industry’s best performance companies. One of the most famous horsepower providers of them all is Whipple Superchargers, who have just announced a new 3.8L supercharger system for a wide range of V8-powered Mustangs.
By comparison, the blower on the Dodge Demon is just 2.7 liters. Commence spinning, whirring, supercharger whining noises.
The announcement was made via the Whipple Superchargers social media accounts, and give us a few key details about the new Gen V blower. The new 3.8L unit has been totally redesigned for improved airflow and efficiency, and features a new rotor inlet shape, a higher flow lid, an increased runner length, as well as a patent-pending dual intercooler system. Whipple Superchargers say the kit will be compatible with 5.0L Coyote V8 powered Ford Mustangs from 2011-2020, as well as the all-mighty 2020 Shelby GT500.
From the factory, the Shelby GT500 comes with a 2.7L TVS R2650 supercharger, which was also the same unit found on the C7 Corvette ZR1. This new 3.8L from Whipple Superchargers features quite a bit more displacement, and we all know the age-old saying. If the range-topping Ford Mustang already pushes 760 horsepower out of its 5.2L V8, we’re sure this kit could bump the muscle car into hypercar-rivaling levels of power. It’s a good thing the Shelby comes with some stellar Brembo brakes that clamp down on massive two-piece floating rotors.
For the time being, Whipple hasn’t shared any pricing information for the new 3.8L blower. The company did reply to commenters on Instagram to say that this particular unit will soon be available for the Hellcat V8 as well, which is intriguing indeed. Be sure to check back at MC&T for more as soon as more information about this new supercharger system becomes available.
