Whipple - (2003-04) Cobra Gen 3 W175AX (2.9L) SC "Upgrade" Kit / 18psi / Black **For Use With Aftermarket Oval Throttle Body**
What is the Gen 3 supercharger? It's Whipple's newest rotor technology which has already proven itself both on the dyno and track as a great improvement over the previous Gen 2 design.The Gen 3 supercharger not only utilizes new rotor technology but a newly designed supercharger housing/case. The Gen 3 design benefits from the 3/5 rotor setup with tighter tolerances making it more efficient. In addition to that the port on the housing has been revised and now allows for increased rotor filling and decreased turbulence, resulting in increased overall supercharger efficiency
What are the benefits of the Gen 3 supercharger?
- Adds up to 30-150 hp/tq at the same boost level
- 10-80*F cooler temps
- New Whipple Crusher SC Housing for increased volumetric efficiency
If your craving more power from your Cobra Terminator, Whipple has the answer. Get the industries most efficient and latest designed twin-screw supercharger available today. The new Whipple-Ford Racing system can produce incredible power levels with stock 4.6L Cobra engines as well as highly modified engines. The revolutionary new W175ax compressor has the ability to run nearly 25lbs of boost (engine modifications required) for unheralded performance.
This direct bolt-on replacement system dramatically lowers supercharger air temperatures and power consumption (hp) versus the factory Eaton roots-type supercharger. The complete bolt-on system comes with all the necessary parts for 13lbs of boost which requires zero modifications to the engine or PCM. The Whipple W175ax HPR (High Pressure Ratio) is optimized for the higher boost levels many crave. Available with the standard inlet for mono-blade throttle bodies such as Accufabs or with the Whipple Crusher intake system.
Other companies make false claims and inaccurate judgments regarding supercharger efficiency and kits. It’s a simple fact that the Whipple Supercharger produces more air per rpm at lower temps and lower parasitic losses. The factory engine can run up to 19psi on pump gas while modified engines can run up to 25psi.
The Whipple Cobra kit not only offers a better supercharger, but the potential to have one of the fastest, most powerful street machines on the road today. The Whipple discharge plate offers far more plenum area as well as a much greater radius to help distribute the air evenly over the entire intercooler core. The air bypass system is properly engineered into the SC discharge for proper function unlike other shrouded systems. This allows lower discharge temps and less parasitic losses during operation. Don’t fall for the misleading advertising, there is simply no comparison in quality and performance.
