Steeda Releases Belt Drive for Whipple Superchargers

Steeda Belt Drive for Whipple Superchargers

With the omnipresent risk of supercharger belt slip, many Ford Mustang owners loathe the notion of power loss and even worse, a broken belt.  Steeda Autosports has developed a noteworthy solution to this widespread dilemma with their Steeda Supercharger Belt Drive system for Whipple superchargers.  The new Steeda Belt Drive setup, when tested, showed improved boost pressure (12 to 13 psi) from the standard rating of the Whipple’s 10psi; illustrating the reduction in belt slip.  When a Whipple-blown Mustang is pushed even harder, the pulley setup also has a retention wall for the belt to keep it in place and out of harm’s way, pulling and generating the power it was meant to rather than becoming an expensive underhood bull whip.  Keep reading to get the full scoop from Steeda and check out their Whipple Belt system in action.
