WHIPPLE Stage 1 Supercharger (GEN 5) for Mustang 5.0L GT 2015-17 | #WK-2620-STG1-G5
Stage 1 Supercharger (NEW GEN 5)
for Ford Mustang 5.0L GT 2015-17
Manufactured by Whipple Superchargers | Part #WK-2620-STG1-G5
The patent pending Stage 1 supercharger system makes up to 750 (+355hp) engine horsepower and 620 (+220ft/lb) foot pound of torque on 93 octane fuel!
Whipple broke many rules and records with its record setting S550 supercharger system, holding the title of the most powerful, most advanced supercharger system available, and while that was good, they wanted great and so decided to build an all new supercharger from the ground up.
The new supercharger system features the brand new Generation 5 3.0L front feed twin-screw supercharger. Not to be confused with the Gen 3 or 4, this all new supercharger features industry-leading efficiency from idle to redline.
All new bearings, gears, rotors and housing allow the new supercharger to spin faster, longer and safer while producing more power than any other positive displacement supercharger ever built. The new Gen 5 features an all new 3/4 rotor combination vs previous 3/5, 285 deg helix vs previous 270 deg, new bell mouth inlet, optimizied dishcarge port and increased diameter vs length ratio for higher efficiency.
The Gen 5 also features an all new patent pending triple intercooler design that has even more volume and surface area than the already massive Whipple Cooler that cooled the Ford Cobra Jets and all the record setting S550 Mustangs. Couple this with the industry's leading heat exchanger, water reservoir and intercooler pump, you get more power with lower boost levels and quicker recovery times after aggressive operation.

- Inverted front entry W185ax (3.0 liters) Whipple twin-screw supercharger that significantly outperforms competitions 1.9L, 2.3L and 2.65L roots-type systems (front entry design can be up to 8% more efficient then a side/rear entry)
- 3.0L is 30% larger than 2.3L roots-type allowing lower power consumtpion and lower discharge temps to flow the same amount of air (more power to the rear wheels)
- Oversized Crusher™ inlet for maximum airflow capacity and minimal rotor cavitation (unique Roval 150mm inlet)
- Front feed allows for oversized intercooler core compared to other smaller intercooler cores giving Whipple lower air charge temps which allows more boost and timing to be run on pump gas
- Largest air-to-water aluminum bar-plate intercooler on the market (as much as 45% larger than competition) offers more cooling than any other positive displacement system available, nothing comes close
- Massive oversized aluminum intercooler reservoir (over 2 gallons) holds more than double any competitors IC water system allowing longer more consistent power levels vs. competition
- Whipple Superchargers massive oversized intercooled air-bypass system for industry leading reduction of burst knock and incredible fuel economy
- Included OBDII flash tool and the new Flight Control technology
- Tomahawk allows for wheel/tire axle changes (A Whipple exclusive)
- 55LB/HR fuel injectors vs others 47LB/HR that others use which severely limits power potential
- Self-contained oversized oil system for dramatically reduced oil temps in even the most demanding conditions
- Exclusive 3x4 rotor combo for significant increase in airflow under the curve than less efficient 4x6 rotor combo or 4x4 roots
- Oversized heat exchanger for incredible intercooler water temps, 150% more volume then competition, standard with every kit
- Unique oil level sight glass for easy oil level and quality check, no dipstick to bind or misread
- Plug and play wiring with male and female connections
- OEM quick connect fittings for easy installation, no ugly brass or steel fittings on the SC
- Easily upgradeable with bigger intercooler pumps, dual electric Spal 11" high speed fans, optional supercharger pulleys
- Instant boost at the touch of the throttle
- 3 minute pulley changes
- Easy belt changes
- Lightweight pocketed aluminum SC pulley
- Optional 3 year, 36,000 mile engine warranty

The Whipple Fuel System
The Whipple Supercharger Stage 1 SC system features the high flowing Bosch 55 lb/hr fuel injectors from the 13-14 GT500. These EV6 mid length fuel injectors offer dual offset angle spray pattern to allow for excellent idle, cold start and drive-ability, yet enough capacity for the massive power gains. Each system comes with extruded, 6AN billet fuel rails with 1/8" NPT port for fuel psi checking or gauges. No other fuel system modifications are required. *Vehicles with 75k mileage should replace the fuel pump and fuel filter due to deterioration. The DW415 fuel pump is a direct replacement and increases significant increase in flow capacity.
Front Inlet vs Rear Inlet
The Whipple front feed system is far superior to other, smaller supercharger rear inlet based SC systems for a very simple reason, less inlet restrictions. The fact is simple, the front entry systems do not require multiple 90deg bends or one sweeping 180deg bend before the SC inlet, which causes unequal rotor filling and lower volumetric efficiency. The new Whipple system only has 1 gradual bend, less than half that of the rear entry style systems. Rear inlet systems also sacrifice the rear inlet to clear the firewall in most cases, or there’s a big need to slide the SC too far forward, making the discharge pointed up and away from the intercooler core, making the air have to make another turn just to get to the intercooler core. It’s simple, the more work the air has to do, the lower the power gains are going to be.
Why choose Whipple Superchargers?
With years of OEM and racing experience, Whipple engineers have developed a unique PCM calibration that reconfigures all the necessary engine functions including fuel, spark, knock detection, torque management, transmission control and electronic throttle control. The vehicles PCM constantly monitors the engines torque output while monitoring many different parameters to keep the engine in it’s ideal parameters. If a parameter falls below specification, the PCM will lower boost and torque output until the problem can be cured. No other calibration in the field has such technology, giving the Whipple SC system unheralded performance and reliability. Each Whipple kit comes with unique software and a OBDII flash tool giving the customer the ability to flash/update whenever needed. Each customer also gets the new Flight Control Software, ability to adjust wheel/axle size, octane adjustment, crank/cam relearn and many other unique features.
Each complete Whipple system comes with the IAT2 harness and sensor to properly monitor the delta between the incoming air and the compressed air after the intercoolers, this helps maximize power in all given enviornments. The 6-rib billet idler system features a billet spring loaded tensioner, billet idler pulleys and lightweight pocketed supercharger pulley. The 6-rib can easily be upgraded to a 10-rib with the optional 10-rib system. Each system comes with an adjustable idler pulley to allow variance in SC pulleys with minimal belt length changes. The massive 150mm Roval inlet allows for nearly any throttle body to be run, 80mm stock, 132mm or 150mm throttle bodies.
The Whipple Advantage
The Whipple Advantage is designed into every Whipple SC system. This advantage is broken down into 5 categories during the design and testing phases which truly sets Whipple apart from others:
- Best power for money.
- Most complete package.
- Maximum power.
- Maximum power expandability.
- Aesthetic appeal.
What does this mean? You get it all, in one package. Massive power gains with the biggest superchargers, biggest intercoolers, biggest intercooler systems, biggest air-inlet systems while providing robust belt systems and heavy-duty spring tensioners. The intake manifold is designed with high velocity in mind, while increasing plenum volume to lower pressure loss at high power applications.
You then get OEM style fuel and vacuum hoses with nylon sheaving for added protection and appeal, OEM style quick connect fittings with billet aluminum fittings. No ugly brass fittings hanging off the inlet like some others. Wire extensions are injection molded to allow simple plug-and-play installations. Each system also has multiple options for increased performance such as oversized heat-exchangers with dual fans, billet high flow throttle bodies, oversized cold air intake systems just to name a few.
Each kit comes with step-by-step instruction manuals printed in color to help all installers, including the do-it-yourselfer. Kits come with all the fasteners, all color matched for proper aesthetic appeal.
So don’t be fooled by others, there is no comparing to the Whipple supercharger systems, simply the top of the line packages designed and built to exceed all expectations.
