Now available from Lethal Performance: The 3.8L Whipple supercharger kits for the 2011-2020 5.0L Coyote Mustang platform!

The Coyote Mustang 3.8L Whipple supercharger, like their popular & record setting 3.0L, is inverted with Whipple's LARGE dual-core intercooler for increased cooling (did we say large???). It also features a new, redesigned inlet for the best, most efficient airflow.

TECHNOLOGY: Whipple Superchargers utilizes a 3D printer for designing & test fitting the new 3.8L supercharger. This makes for faster & more productive R&D.

The 3.8L Whipple for the Coyotes features an all new inlet design



The 3.8L Whipple for the Coyote is taller than the 3.0L (.375" taller, to be exact) but will fit under the stock Mustang hood and cowl with Whipple's engine lowering brackets (INCLUDED in the kits). As of right now, the engine lowering kit is still required for aftermarket hoods as it hits the cowl if not lowered. (Whipple is working on a lid change so that it will clear the cowl, though!)

Ready for a little more info on the kits available? Sure you are!

The 3.8L Whipple Supercharger will be offered in a few different kits. The 3.8L will only be offered in competition kits (meaning no fuel or tuning mods will be provided). The kits will come standard as a 6-rib setup (utilizes the same pulley & belt drive as the 3.0L). There is a 10-rib belt upgrade available and is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for anything over 18psi.



Each kit (Stage 1 and Stage 2) comes complete with the following:

  • 3.8L Head Unit
  • 3.8L Intercooler and Lid Setup
  • Supercharger Pulley
  • Belt Drive System (6 Rib Standard; 10 rib upgrade available)
  • Heat Exchanger
  • Cold Air Intake
  • Throttle Body (either 132mm or 150mm, depending on stage; see below)
  • Heat Exchanger
  • Intercooler Reservoir
  • Intercooler pump and all hoses for the intercooler system
  • Engine Lowering Brackets (Required to clear the factory hood)
  • All Necessary Items to Install Supercharger Kit



3.8L Stage 1 Competition Kit - Comes standard with a 132mm TB setup

3.8L Stage 2 Competition Kit - Comes standard with a 150mm TB (NOTE: this is a RACE throttle body/intake and is not recommended for most street applications)



Already have a 3.0L Whipple Supercharger on your Coyote but want to upgrade?

3.8L Swap Kit
- This is for those already running a 3.0L who want to upgrade. This kit is ONLY the head unit, intercooler and lid; NO pulley, manifold, TB, etc. This setup will include the engine lowering kit, as well.

Are there any downsides to swapping to the bigger unit? I guess its heavier.. but more efficient from what ive read. I have an order in for the 3.0 but I may change to the 3.8 but IDK if its worth changing the order since I am planning on ~800 rwhp. If its safer and more efficient to make that power on the 3.8 it may be worth it to me. Also it will have more potential if I ever did decide to go all out and build the motor and turn it up to like 1300 rwhp.

What do you guys think, if you were getting a whipple would you just go with the bigger one now as a no-brainer with almost no downsides?

Does lowering the motor cause any problems or other issues? I guess that lowers the center of gravity a bit ..

Hard to decide.

Gen5 3.0 can make 1300hp. I say stay with your current setup.

If you are only wanting 800 rwhp then the 3.0L with 3.875 pulley, E85, headers with 3" exhaust should get you there. I made 804 at 7650rpm SAE on 3.875 on my 17gt mt82 car

I dont have the blower yet I would be getting it in 8 weeks at earliest, so I think I could switch but idk if I should. Probably wont make a big difference but if its nearly the same price and more potential and more efficient it seems like a no brainer upgrade.

Doesn't really make sense in your application, but it's your money!

I could be wrong, but I don't think the 3.8 kit comes with any fuel related components or a tune. So you'd need to factor that in the total price. That would put the kit $2k+ what I spent on my 3.0 stage 2 complete kit when it was on-sale. I really feel the 3.8 is geared towards dedicated race car stuff.

Stick with the 3.0. The 3.8 is a whole lot of blower, palm beach dyno did an interview with Dustin Whipple and they said this blower will not be able to be used with pump gas and is pretty much only recommended for built motor e85
