If you had to choose between the two, what would you go with and why?
Supercharge it AND keep it forever. While the 2017+ will be another great truck, I do not believe it will have the same "rawness" the current gen is capable of. Don't get me wrong, the next gen will perform, but the '10-'14 will always have a place in my heart.
With that said, hit me up for a Whipple!
Tough call for me.
Turbo will always beat a supercharger in my mind.
Plus, it will be set up for boost from the factory.
Supercharge for sure. First year of any new redesign will almost always have issues to work out, and tweaks will be made. Plus the 6.2 will become a little bit of a "collector", since they are not making anymore in the Raptor. Easy decision IMO. Keep the truck forever. Wait and save up and buy a 19.
You know my suggestion
We have sold tons of Whipple and Roush kits to our Raptor customers on the fact that not many are happy about the Ecoboost engine in the 2017. Nothing beats a blown 6.2L in my book. They are just so much more fun to drive like that, you'll never understand how you drove your truck with out a blower! Let us know if you have any questions, we've probably installed more superchargers kits on Raptors than anyone else!
@cbcgeneral is your supercharger on yet?
the looks are nice on the new 17 but im not all for the square look, I really love my 13 and have put a good grip of money into it already so might as well keep building till im satisified.
No not yet mostly because I want to install the header I have for it at the same time and I know how much of a pain in the ass they are so I keep pussing out lol. Plus dealing with the shattered rear window on the truck and all the stuff I've been trying to do on my white truck there just isn't enough time in the day. I just need to stop working and spend all day playing with my trucks lol. Plus I've been waiting for a phone call from you volunteering to come down and help me with it. I just checked my phone again and still nothing.
Although I obviously haven't driven the new one, and like others have said I'm sure it will be amazing. I absolutely love the styling of the current gen, and don't need to get rid of my 6.2L just to have the "latest". I will be keeping my 6.2L Raptor for a long time.
