If it's warrantied by my dealer, I'd still do it!!

My warranty is the ONLY reason I haven't been messing with the truck. If the dealer covered it all, oh boy, it's ON....

In the spirit of this topic (HP), here's a little video of our test drive when the old man got his sand rail together (this was 5-6 years ago, car still looks brand new). Turn up your speakers!

A supercharged 6.2 would be a towing beast. I would buy one in a heartbeat.

And, you would not have to add fertilizer to your truck, like the diesel boys to now, then face a $10k cost because your wife put in in the wrong filler hole.

ProCharger has a kit for the Raptor 6.2L that yields 496 RWHP (see link below). With a 20% loss of HP to the rear wheels, that's 620 HP at the engine. The Roush kit should yield similar results but could be greatly enhanced with a few upgrades. My only concern would be the ability of the internals (crank, rods, pistons) to endure the stress of say 10+ PSI over time. Does anyone know if the 6.2L internals are forged?

ProCharger F-150 SVT Raptor 6.2L 2V HO Supercharger Kit 1FS211-SCI

The total cost of the base Roush kit would be in the $7,500 to $8,000 range including installation cost. Start replacing the internals with forged components and the cost escalates very quickly!

RED = BAD
BLUE = GOOD

I guess that running 6-7 PSI would be acceptable with the OEM internals.

Yeah, seems like it'd be trial and error (at my expense). If my dealer stands behind me and warranty's my truck as usual, I'm sold...

As was posted earlier, Roush Performance is a partner with Ford Motor Company and generally designs SC kits that are warranty compliant. I wish that FMC would take the time and minimal amount of $$$ to use forged internals in all of their engines.

The cast crank and high silicon pistons are the same spec used in the 4.6 3V and 5.0 Mustang motors and they are boosted all the time. As long as we keep the tune conservative and boost numbers on this side of insane there's no reason to think it would survive for a long time.

And are we sure that the crank is cast? I though I read somewhere that is was forged

It's not the power that breaks a lot of pistons it's detonation from pour tune ups or bad gas
