Just got the ol truck back

2012 F150 FX4 supercrew, 5.0. Have had the roush blower on it for some time with their weak arse warranteed tune. Had american racing headers and magnaflow catback installed, along with a smaller blower pulley to up my boost. Installer custom tuned it after it was all said and done. Sitting on 488 horses and 450 ft/lbs of torque at the wheels (he estimates 612ish hp at the motor). Pretty fun, it'll run.

sweet.

Ive installed a few of the roush superchargers. nice setup.

just put a whipple charger on my buddies new mustang
its capable of 40lbs boost. only running about 20 now til we get it on the dyno. hes waiting on some new 60lb injectors so we can light the wick..
should make close to a 1000hp when cranked up

That's badass. Once my warranty is up on the raptor, I'm gonna slap a supercharger on it, heads back exhaust. 411/434 stock aint too shabby.

Nice, thinking of doing something along the same line to the new Chevy I about to get, not quite as much as you though. Probably just some headers, intake, exhaust and chip.

With the soft suspension not sure. But I have smoked a few 6.2 Chevys with lift kits. From 35-100mph it rolls

re: Just got the ol truck back
You would be surprised just how much improvement you see from tuning alone. There so many bull shite "safety" things on these motors these days. Mine for instance, i was told, would only go half throttle no matter how hard you press the gas below 4500 rpm. That along with the torque management really robs alotta of your stock power/responsiveness.

FWIW my 5.0 is advertised by ford as having 360/380 stock at the motor, and it dynoed at 313/332 at the wheels. So i gained 175/118 at the wheels.
