First Supercharged truck

Hello everyone,
I am new to the forums and wanted to say hi to everyone and ask a couple of general questions if I can. I just purchased a 2006 Roush f-150. I absolutely love this truck. It is my first supercharged vehicle ever. Can someone give me a quick rundown on dos and don'ts? Are there any special maintenance procedures I need to be aware of? Those sort of things.

Also I found out that this is a non-intercooled version. I contacted Roush and they told me the truck was sent to them by the factory as a series 1, but then sent back to them by the dealer to have the charger put on. The truck is quick, but not really what I was expecting over my other f-150. I have been looking for an intercooler to upgrade it. WOW! They are proud of them. I was wondering if there are other alternatives other than having to buy one from Roush. I think from my research that this is actually an Eaton M112 charger. But I could not find any info on buying the intercooler for an Eaton charger. Does anyone have any info that might help? I would love to bump up the boost and get a Troyer Performance tune for it. I think I could find a lot of hidden power.

Well I will not make this post to awful long. Mostly wanted to introduce myself. My name is Barry and I look forward to some good conversations.

Welcome fella. The Roush truck sounds awesome.

Roush don't sell anything for the 04 - 08. Stage3 have plenty of stock for this kit.

Roush is the only one that makes a kit to add an intercooler to there supercharger. Unfortunately.
The Eaton setup on the lightning is similar but I don't think any of the parts will work for you.
Probably your best option for adding a intercooler is to buy a used Roush intercooled supercharger kit, install it on your truck and sell the non intercooled kit that's on there now. ):
You can add a water/meth injection kit that will cool it some ,but not enough to add much more boost.

That is a bummer! Thanks for the info. I was hoping to get lucky and find a cheaper out. Now to find a used Roushcharger kit I guess.

Let's see if these pics work:
