    Wow, aren't you that guy who went on a posting tirade trashing Roush
    in any thread you could revive or jump in?

    Anyways to counter that statement, I just had the stock tensioner
    pulley fail and snap right off of my truck while I was driving I'm town.
    The crappy pulley then got swung around my engine bay before
    finally falling out and ending up on the side of the road. Before
    it did that it managed to rip off the power steering fluid line, hit the
    top of the oil cooler housing with force creating a pinhole and cracking it.
    Also it naturally shredded my belts.

    Now my truck was left immobilized, called Ford Roadside assistance
    who then had my truck brought to the nearest dealer. The techs
    looked at everything and naturally made the decision my
    extended warranty with Ford wouldn't be coming into play
    with this at all..big surprise. .not. So that's when my 3 year
    36k mile Roush warranty came into play. Roush was sent all
    Infor about the incident and pictures along with that. They
    then got in contact with the Ford service rep and told them
    to ordee all the parts needed to repair the truck except
    for the tensioner pulley since they would be sending one
    out from their end along with a new belt, they next
    day aired the parts to the dealer. The dealer installed
    everything and Roush paid for the Ford parts and all labor
    without any fuss and no questions asked even the Ford
    Service mamager mentioned how smooth and professional
    the Roush reps were.

    My truck was good to go and back on the road within 3 days.
    And it didn't cost me a dime. Bottom line Roush is one of
    best aftermarket companies I've dealt with and I
    couldn't ask for a better experiance with them and
    their products and services. Roush all the way.:head3:

    That would be nice,

    I have ask Whipple in the past if they are considering doing a 8 rib serpentine system and the answer was yes but they feel the 6 rib is more than capable of handling a SC Raptor.
    The cost to design a whole new 8 rib system is not feasible for any company.

    It should be up to Ford to do the right thing!!! IMO

    Or at least have Ford Racing/SVT come up with a upgrade system for us, I'm sure many would upgrade, especially if your going heavy off-roading!
    I don't know for sure but I bet you, the Raptor R had an 8 or even a 10 rib system.

    I for one would be first in line!!!
