you need to use the lightning ecu along with the gauge cluster for the pats to work properly. Your only other option is to get with a lightning turner and have them turn off the pats in the tune

I'm not sure where exactly the ecu is. I want to say passenger side kick panel. And yes the ignition would need to be used as well. But like i said earlier when you go to get tuned just get the pats turned off.

Also while im thinking about it. a n/a 5.4 has a slightly higher compression ratio then a boosted 5.4. Its not much but i would defently make sure the tune is stop on or you will be doing the window mod.

I know you have a 250, but this is what is needed to convert a N/A F150 to run a Lightning S/C. http://www.madenterprise.com/scparts.htm

Mike has it down pat and is very helpful and I bet he wouldn't mind answering any questions you have.
