Under the hood there's no difference between a -250 and a -350, so I can't see any reason why it wouldn't work.

Personally, I think the only reason Ford doesn't offer a more powerful OEM 6.2 is because it would suck sales numbers away from their diesel. The diesel is an $8,000 option alone and to lose some of that money on the table would never be good.

so whats this thing cost? I did not see a price on the site.....

If its under $8k then it really is something to look at....the 6.7 option is over $8k.....

Plus we all know the 6.7 is a ton of maintenance......super charging the 6.2 would give you a large boost in tq....this thing is making 450 foot pounds at 2500 rpm!!!! and it stays nice and flat all the way up....that is very useable tq!

Plus from the specs you can run on 91 oct and those numbers were only 8.8psi which is not much at all....I would suspect it would live as long as a stocker if it were driven normal....now I say that because if you were driving with the skinny pedal to the floor every time you got in it you may see some failure of items prematurely.

I would like to see some time with these things on other SD's to see how they hold up........I may consider this in a few years....it also greatly depands on what Ford does with the 6.2......I am waiting to see if the direct inject it.

I sent whipple an email last week looking for pricing and a local installer. I'll report back when I get more info.

I don't remember if it was the Whipple setup but I remember seeing a price for a supercharger setup for the Super Duties priced at around $6,500 a few months ago. Cheaper than the diesel option.

If they could make this kit for the
$5k price with everything you need I would probably be all over it......even $6k I would still be on it.

Yes its cheaper than the 6.7 up front costs and in maintenance!

Agree 100%.

I was on board with it and ready to pull the trigger, but went with a dirt bike instead. Gets much better mpg's than a SC'ed 6.2 would. ha ha.

You get those bags installed yet?

Haha sounds like me....I got other toys that take up my money and really fast......

No have not installed the bags yet they are still sitting on my bench.....been working on finishing out fitting my trailer for some track days this fall.....adding work bench and nice heavy duty cabinet, hell the 8k winch and battery weighs 100 plus pounds! This is gonna increase the tong weight of my trailer even more so the bags are going to be much needed!

Wow, this got me excited on a Thursday morning. I don't own a 6.2 but my next truck (a few years down the road) will very likely be a 6.2 super duty. Very nice to know that this option exists.

I have zero experience with super chargers. For those who do, what sort of mileage impact would result from adding one? Both unladen cruising speed and towing/haulin?

$9,600!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!

That's a bit ridiculous.......did you get a price for the kit only?

I would not pay for that I would do it myself.

Yeah, $7500 for the kit, $1500 for the install and $600+ sales tax. I had a supercharger on my vette 10 yrs ago and there is no way I could've installed that one with my skills. This one looks a little easier based on the pictures but you would still need to do a dyno tune. They usually charge by the hour. These prices are in diesel territory!

I definitely won't be getting rid of my 5.4 SD any time soon but when I'm ready to add another beast to the stable it won't be a diesel. It's nice to see some aftermarket support for this motor.
