    Video Review & Installation

    The Whipple W175FF 2.9-liter Intercooled Supercharger Kit is a great option for any '14 to '18 5.3 Silverado or Sierra 1500 owner, looking to upgrade to a forced induction set up to make some great power over the stock or naturally aspirated motor. Supercharging your truck will put some serious low in torque at your disposal which does wonders for guys using their truck to its fullest potential. If you're towing and hauling constantly, then you know the more torque at the bottom under the RPM bin the better off you are. Now, with a lifted set up with larger wheels and tires, it will just be that much more helpful. Grabbing the 2.9-liter blower from a big name like Whipple will take towing and hauling to the next level making it easier for your truck by allowing the motor to use less force to get things moving. For those of you who aren't necessarily doing all the towing and hauling, but might be interested in that serious power gain and muscle that the blower adds to the 5.3, this is a great choice. You can generally expect power gains of up to a 150 rear wheel horsepower with this twin screw system which is ready to go right out of the box at about 78 pounds of boost. The TVS or Twin Vortices Series Supercharger is really a stable in the blower community. That root-style option that Whipple's got here offers a sizeable gain in horsepower and torque. Now, unfortunately, we don't have a dyno graph for you today, but like I said, the general claim is on seven to eight psi you pick up somewhere up to a 150 horsepower which is currently the most pound-for-power option on the market. It's got a flat-torque curve which helps with acceleration all around the RPM bin. Now, there are a few other options on the market for blowers for your 5.3 Silverado or Sierra. Some of those others will include the SLP TVS 1900 Supercharger, the EN 1900 1.9-liter, and the 2300 2.3-liter Superchargers. The Whipple here has 52% more displacement than the EN 19 and 26% more than a 2.3. Its 112-millimeter round inlet has a better airflow obviously than smaller 90-millimeters and 92-millimeters found in Whipple's competitors. Now, the star of the kit is obviously the twin screw root blower, but below it you'll find the absolutely massive air to water intercooler, one that has a reservoir holding up the 2.5 gallons that allows for lower air-charge temps for more boost and time to be run on pumped gas. It's got a center discharge port for better cylinder to cylinder distribution than other twin screws with forward facing discharge. The big mouth Whipple crusher air intake is a hard plastic construction for increase velocity and lower inlet temps versus a steel or aluminum alternative. All of this is made to be a direct bolt-on six-belt system with adjustable idler and three-minute pulley changes if you want to make more power with a smaller one. Finally, the wrinkle black finish is a really good looking cherry on top under your hood. I do wanna point out that what you see on the table with me today is not everything that the kit comes with. You can find spark plugs, all of the necessary hardware. There are a ton of other goods included in the kit. I am just a little rough on space today. Now, for those of you who may be considering the benefits of a supercharger versus turbocharging, keep in mind that a supercharger provides that instantaneous throttle response, generating power throughout, but most only that low-end. Turbos take time to spool and usually kick in at the higher RPM range, unless you're going with that twin set up which might be the case there. Truck guys typically need that low-end gain, so this is a really good way to go. If you like what you see, you can grab one for your own 5.3 for just about 6,500 bucks. Forced induction does not come cheap, but once you spend the money you can feel every dollar's worth with these trucks. Now, as far as the installation goes, you're looking at the full three out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, but I think that goes without saying. Now, any forced induction set up is very labor-intensive and requires very good mechanical knowledge and expertise. I will say this is not the hardest install when it comes to forced induction, but it's not a job left to a novice. Expect a full day to a weekend to tackling it, depending on your experience. You wanna have the entire toolbox on deck when you get started, and there's no shame handing it over to a professional if you're not comfortable tackling it yourself. That's gonna wrap up my review of the Whipple W175FF 2.9-liter Intercooled Supercharger Kit which you can find for your own '14 to '18 5.3 Silverado or Sierra 1500. You can get yours right here
