Must have exhaust as well to take advantage of the increased airflow.

What tuner are you getting? I'm impressed with what the EB are doing. I tho put a supercharger on a 5.0 150. I wanted the v8 sound.

I don't think you will be disappointed... more gains are to be had through exhaust... heartthrob is the most popular with the most gains... I've tet put an exhaust but it will be a 4 inch...

Holy shit! And you got some Roush heads? Beautiful!

Any videos of some 0-60s or anything?

All I have right now is revving in my warehouse

And a blast through the Harvey tunnel with the windows down. That was with the whimpy stock roush tune. I'm also running the roush exhaust.

More like Roush valve cover inserts. Roush seriously needs to fix that belt setup, no excuse to run less than a 10-rib belt with a roots or screw-type supercharger. Can get away with an 8-rib on a centri (to a certain point) but with that much room and the minimal extra cost it should be no brainer.

Yes just valve covers. As for 8 rib it's fine for lower boost. My whipple on my 06 mustang it was 6 from them. I put a 8rib on and don't have any issues but I'm only running 12lbs on that one...11 on the truck.

I run around 14 psi through the D1 on my 2V 5.4 and the 8-rib has no problem with that but I'll always get more when I can. With PD's there's just so much more inertia with the rotors which is why the Lightnings/Cobras ran 10-rib and the FGT ran a 12-rib belt. So'k though, my next setup will use a big ol' turbo....

I'm not sure why, but I like the boost gauge in what looks to be the AC vent. What does the rest of the truck look like? I'm assuming it's an FX4 as well?

re: Boosting my ecoboost...


I thought long and hard about a turbo on my mustang. But since this was my first FI car and it is just a street beater I with TS for that instant TQ. They didn't have any turbo setups for the 150 so I went roush...but someone is working on a TT setup now that makes me regret the roush a tad lol.

Sorry to thread jack.

Yea in the ac vent. It is slick but lessons the air flow some. Not too bad tho. Fx4 but I took the stickers off and added the appearance package stripe. Amp power steps. 2" level with bmf 20" rims. 305/55/20 cooper zeon tires. And some recon led lights and custom HID headlights.
