Unique Features of the GM LS Universal Front Feed SC System
One of the great features of this system is the air to water intercooler. What’s so exciting about air to water intercooler? Thanks to their 26 years of experience, Whipple Superchargers developed this oversized air to water intercooler; with the additional real estate in this Texas-sized design, the cool capacity in this unit is impressive. Heat is the enemy in creating power with forced induction, so increased cooling capacity helps this system deliver reliable and consistent power to your engine. Along with the heat fighting design, the intercooler bypass system improves performance and does not waste fuel during moments when heavy acceleration is not required. According to Whipple Superchargers, this twin-screw unit achieves 99-percent volumetric efficiency.
As this is designed to be a universal application for all LS engines, it makes sense that the kit will work with stock cylinder heads as well as many aftermarket offerings found on high-performance engines. In addition to the flexibility in cylinder heads, the GM LS Universal Front Feed SC System features different belt systems to meet the specific needs of hot rod and off-road applications. The 6-rib belt system comes with an adjustable idler and a heavy-duty spring-loaded tensioner to limit the impact of belt slippage under heavy throttle. In addition to the 6-rib system, Whipple offers performance addicts a fix with the optional 10-rib system. For more specifics and features, please visit the Whipple Superchargers website.
