You have made the right decision, IMO
You made a ok decision, IMO....Should have gone with Roush though. ;P
I have the roush here in Denver, I am happy to take you for a ride if you want. I weighed the options heavily and got a local shop I trust to do the instal. I bought the optional power train warranty as well. Pm me if you want to talk live, I learned alot throught the process.
Go with whipple cause Roush won't warrant shit
Good luck bud
ProCharger Superchargers, centrifugal supercharger kits for cars, trucks, motorcycles and marine applications.
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.
I bet they change out the pulleys right away now.
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!!!
Is super charger good for Offroad use? I will be driving it in fine dirt and will need air box sealed good!
^ get an UMP. I love my Roush charger
