Whipple Superchargers from the Largest Volume Install shop in The USA - TORQ!

That's right Ladies and Gents, Torq is the largest volume install shop for Whipple Superchargers in the country!


Stephen's Whipple Powered 5th Gen after winning the 5th Gen Shootout at The Super Chevy Show, one of many Whipple Powered 5th Gens built by TORQ





At Torq, we have been installing Whipple Superchargers since the start, and as soon as the 2010 Camaro Kit came out on the market we jumped on it and got one in as soon as we could! We were amazed with the quality of the kit, and after we put it on the dyno even more amazed with the power!


Marvin's Whipple Powered 2010 SS - 575rwhp!




Our latest creation soon to be completed, Xavier's 2010 with a Whipple Supercharger, full Kooks Exhaust, Roto-fab Intake and a Torq Custom Camshaft - 653rwhp!




We offer several different packages and options for the 2010 Camaro Whipple Supercharger Kits for both mail order and installation here at Torq HQ. These are all developed in-house on our Mustangdyno 1100, and are both street & track tested to ensure perfect drive-ability, power and reliability.

Upgrades Include:
  • Torq Custom Tune Files
  • Torq IAT Relocation Kits
  • Torq Custom Camshafts
  • Complete Fuel Systems
  • Whipple Specific Air Intakes



The new 2010 Whipple Supercharger Camaro system boasts the largest positive displacement supercharger currently available, the massive 2.9 liter W175AX. The new system utilizes the new Force Fed front feed inlet system for maximum airflow and maximum performance. With the industries biggest twin-screw superchargers, Whipple has also incorporated the biggest aluminum air-to-water intercooler for any of the LS series engines to make more power than any other positive displacement supercharger on the market. All while fitting nicely under the stock hood with zero modifications. We have noticed lower IAT's, and more power at the same boost level compared to other kits available on the market.

If you have any questions regarding Whipple Supercharger's for the 2010 Camaro's just give me a call at 877-870-TORQ,

We use a ZR-1 MAP sensor, and all of our kits and tunes come with the appropriate adjustments for the mods. If your car is being dyno tuned your tuner should be able to do the necessary adjustments.

For the IAT we use a Delphi sensor, here is a shot of one installed before the head unit went on!

Looking good Erik

I'm a lil surprised that they already don't come with the IAT there though.

Erik is the ZR-1 MAP difficult to install does the Whipple have to come off?

Do you have to modify the fuel rail?

Yes sir, you do have to modify the fuel rail slightly to make it clear.

Thanks bud! I agree, I do know they have an option now for an IAT relocation kit but we use a different style sensor.

do you have instructions on how to mod the fuel rail. also is your kit better or the same as the one whipple sales, why did you go with that particular style sensor.

As of Monday we will have instructions done and once put together we will be supplying them together with our kits.

Our IAT kit uses the same sensor as Kenne Bell, Maggie etc and we feel it is a safer unit then the Whipple one because if Whipple's brakes (for whatever reason) it's going int he motor. If ours were to brake it's not going anywhere.

We have done a lot of testing and simply feel ours in the the proper location using the proper parts.

Let me know if you have any more questions!

Do you have any logs showing the iat temp as well as the reporting ambient temps for either dyno or street testing. Interested in seeing the efficiency. What do you do about the iat calibration differences between these sensors and the factory Maf element calibration. I have noticed they have different functions.

We can supply the IAT sensor calibration data if you require; however, the stock calibration data is within .01% and has no real difference within the operating ranges. The IAT from the factory has nothing to do with MAF other than the signal/sensor is in the Mass Air Meter element and of course not reading hot boosted temps.

Our custom tunes and mail order tunes also recalibrate spark IAT tables for this

Yes, we do have logs showing IAT temps on the dyno and a few on the street that show we are staying at or under 125F with the Whipple and this setup. I also think we have data comparing this to the HB (Heat Box).....I mean KB (Kenne Bell)

How do the 125 degree-and-below IAT's compare to KB's?

Paul will chime in in the morning with some excel sheets and more data for you guys! He has put some great stuff together for us.

We have found the Kenne Bell's to run about 10-15* hotter then Whipple's at the same ambient temps, and this is important depending on where some tuners may start to retard timing based on inlet temps.

Stay Tuned for more info!

Check out this comparison graph between a bone stock car, Marvin's Whipple Powered LS3 and of course Xavier's Cam & Whipple Powered LS3! These are for sure some amazing results with crazy gains!

Notice also in the graph that there is no loss of power/torque in the bottom end or midrange with our custom grind cam, just an amazing power acceleration with power still climbing to the sky

Can you post a picture of the instructions on the iat relocation kit or pm me them to me, thinking of doing this mod soon
