    Default Whipple Supercharger... What fits my truck's year?

    I have been scattering around the internet looking for a good deal on a used whipple twin screw supercharger, and so far the only one I have been able to locate is a the model that fits the "generation" before mine. I believe for the 1999-2002 model. I have a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado with the 5.3L vortec v8, is there any significant difference or reason why I can't buy a whipple supercharger from the previous generation? I fully intend to get my truck tuned accordingly, I just don't want to waste the money on something that for sure won't fit my truck. Any and all help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    The whipple on the 03-05s mount in place of the intake manifold. On mine(2000) it's an auxiliary unit mounted off to the side. Not sure if the mounting brackets will interchange but there should be space for it under your hood.

    Note: 03-05 whipples have a build in intercooler whereas mine has NO provisions for one and is a pain in the a$$ to make one fit without some serious fab work.
    IMO- yours would be a much better unit.
