- 1,260 HP, Front Feed 4.5L Whipple 427 LS Engine
With a Borowski-Built Front Feed 4.5L Whipple supercharged LS and its 130mm drive-by-wire throttle body and custom made front section, say goodbye to having to fabricate a cold air pipe from the rear of the engine. There is no cleaner way to put a 1,260hp pump gas engine in a vehicle. This engine makes OVER 1,000 ft/lbs of torque starting at 3,400 rpm, carries it over 1,000 ft/lbs past 6,700 rpm.
We use the Emtron engine management system for this build. Its very high processing speed is uniquely capable of providing the level of control required for excellent driveability and power delivery. The Emtron system also provides a range of features such as traction control, cruise control and more. It protects your investment with its capability to more effectively monitor engine performance and apply more sophisticated control schemes. This system also features a custom wiring harness that is far superior to those of other competitive units.

Why a twin-screw, positive-displacement supercharger for street?
OEM manufacturers utilize positive displacement superchargers due to their incredible throttle response and drive-ability. The twin-screw compressor is by far the best supercharger available today; it’s the only supercharger to provide a positive displacement design for maximum low-end torque as well as high efficiency for maximum top-end horsepower.
- The vacuum bypass valve provides naturally aspirated gas mileage and driveability under cruise or light load conditions with virtually instantaneous boost once you put your foot into it.
- Turbos must spool in order to build boost thereby causing lag
- Roots-type superchargers are not very efficient, especially at higher boost levels.
Why the Whipple 4.5L Supercharger?
- The 4.5 liter supercharger fits under most cowled hoods without modifications.
- Compared to Whipple's smaller 2.9L version, it is able to generate substantially more boost on this engine (approx 20 psi vs. 13 psi)
- Their high efficiency reduces heat generated compressing the inlet air
- Their integral intercooler is very effective at maintaining a low manifold air temperature allowing engine designs with higher compression ratios, more timing or both.
- Whipple superchargers dominate the market in the most challenging segment - sand rails. These units are durable, reliable and easily serviceable.
- The Emtron ECU is much faster than the mass-market brands. The Emtron, through its higher processing speeds is better able to control this superchargers throttle body and achieve a normal idle RPM.
-Torque Management - Use the keypad to turn up and turn power as desired.
- Cruise Control - Let the Emtron ECU add modern amenities to your muscle car.
- Traction Control - The Emtron ECU can calculate differences between the front and rear tires speeds and measure and record drops in G-Force to manage traction using a drive-by-wire throttle body.
- Launch Control
- Allows better engine protection strategies

- These engines are not pollution compliant and are intended for transportation use only in pre-pollution controlled vehicles.
- All BRE engines are individually dyno tested and tuned. Customers will be supplied with video of their engine's dyno along with the dyno and build sheets.
- Dyno results on the same engine are influenced by atmospheric conditions. The same engine can easily test +/- 2% different on horsepower depending upon ambient conditions. The engine you receive will have completed its dyno session at no less than 98% of rated horsepower with the tune we provide.
- The photos representing our engine designs show a variety of customized builds and also reflect its design evolution. As such, there may be some differences in appearance and parts from what is shown in some of the pictures and videos.
