    Thinking of doing the Whipple Gen 5 blower for my 17 GT. Ive been going back and forth turbo or supercharger. How is the install of this kit? top notch? Im assuming IAT;s are much better with this kit than other Supercharger kits?
    thanks

    If I was buying a supercharger for 15-17 i'd get gen 5. It's an easy decision

    A) Larger volume, 3.0 liter versus 2.9 liter
    B) Better rotor design; gen 5 features a 3 male/4 female rotor design versus the 3/5 rotor design of the prior gens. The 3/4 design responds better the harder it's pushed
    C) Absolute breathtakingly large intercooler brick. Gen 5 flips the blower upside down (Style seen most familiarly with the GM LSA/LT4 blowers) which allows for the largest surface area intercooler brick on the marker

    Probably because it's the current world record holder for Supercharged 2018+ cars:

    Having been down this road before, I’m going to ask some questions...
    Auto or manual?
    Street or strip?
    Are you going to run the supplied tune or going with a tune from elsewere?
    Do you want a car that makes good numbers on a dyno or one that produces good average power across the board?
    So many things to consider.

    This right here looks like it would make a h*ll of a difference. Can somebody confirm how much lower the IAT's are compared to previous designs?

    Any of them will blow a stock motor. I’d go with a Gen 4 whipple. Belt changes look easier and I personally think the intercooler on top design is ugly. Yes it definitely performs but it’s like a fat girl that can blow good. You ain’t gonna show that off very much.

    Agree - based on what I have seen that is the plan. They seems to be top notch. I already have a VMP on my 03 Cobra so I want to try something different plus
    Haha good analogy. LOL I do agree that the Gen 4 does look better under the hood.

    the whipple is a great kit, you can't go wrong with any power adder on a coyote really.

    they all can make more than enough power to pop a stock engine. feel free to hit me up with any questions and we can help ya out
