VRP whipple supercharger upgrade kit for the M113k E55 CLS55 S55 SL55 CL55 AMG

The VRP 2.9L Whipple Kit is the ultimate performance upgrade for M113k! The major advantage of this kit is its ability to utilize factory parts.

We have prepared this guide to help with your installation process!

Step 1: Apply Gaskets

Take the gasket material provided and gently push it into the grooves on the snout adapter plate and base plate.

Be careful not to stretch the material so you do not leave thin spots in the application.

Overlap the material by 1/4” and cut. Use RTV to attach the ends.

(Generation 1 Kits do not have this type of gasket)

Step 2:

(Generation 1 Kits: Apply RTV Black silicone to the flange face of the supercharger.)

Install the snout adapter to the rear of the supercharger with 4x (6x for Gen 2 Whipple headunits) M8 X 20m

Install the Snout using 10x m5 X 10mm bolts

Install the brass fittings and 1/8npt plugs as shown in the photo to the right. The larger 3/8 Barb goes in the rear of the snout, This will tie into the existing metal tube bolted to your Valve cover near the end of the install.

Step 3: Install the base plate

Flip the supercharger over to install the base plate
Secure the plate using 7x M8 X 20mm bolts.

Step 4: Install the Intercooler

Due to variances in Intercoolers some units will need to have the mounting tabs shaved or ground down.

Secure the intercooler with 4x M8 X 14mm bolts at the 4 bolt flange, and 2x  M8 X 12mm bolts at the rear tabs.
