What’s the performance difference of the Whipple Charger and Centrifugal superchargers?

The major difference between the positive displacement Whipple Charger and today’s centrifugal superchargers is the rate of boost. The Whipple Charger creates boost the instant the throttle is touched usually reaching full boost by 2000 to 2400 rpm. The centrifugal supercharger is a belt driven turbo that has a lag time while it "spools up." The centrifugal commonly does not come into boost until 2600 to 3000 rpm and they commonly do not reach full boost until max rpm. Whenever the Whipple Charger has more boost, your engine has more power giving you far more net power.



The instant boost gives you far better throttle response whenever you call upon it, far greater acceleration, and incredible drive-ability. A good example is when you’re towing up a hill at 3000 rpm and you need more power. If you give it some throttle with the Whipple Charger, you’ll get 6 lbs. of boost, if you have a centrifugal, then you can’t get that 6 lbs. of boost unless your at full rpm. This boost graph better illustrates the boost characteristics of the Whipple Charger and centrifugal superchargers.
