Yes it's a V10 Supercharger Question Thread, get in here anyway.

The truck...2001 F350 6.8L 2V.

The charger...Whipple twin screw

The story.....So I own a very small business that's licensed to manufacture firearms, AR15 style firearms to be specific. I recently took in a pieced together whipple kit in trade on a custom rifle build. Here's the list of parts that I have.

Whipple Charger
Accessory bracket
Drive Pulley
Various piping and manifolds
Intercooler
Lucas 38lp/hr injectors (best guess based on part number)
In-line fuel pump
modified coolant neck


I do not have the stand alone computer that whipple originally included with the kit. I have talked with a local tuner and the plan is to go with an SCT tuner and 3 hours dyno time to dial it in.

While the automotive world is not new to me (built MANY Mustangs) this will be the first supercharger I've ever installed, and I'm a little apprehensive using a pieced together and used kit. My tuner recommended 42# injectors but feels that the 38# should be enough. These are the old pushrod motor style fat injectors with adapter pigtails (exactly like these)

Click the image to open in full size.

which brings up my first question...

Will these injectors physically work or should I sell them and get 42# narrow body injectors like the factory ones?

Question #2 (for now)...

Any parts you guys can think of that I should pick up?

TIA!!


Additional useless info...

Thanks, but those I do have. That gets me as far as getting everything installed and plumbed. But the way this kit is put together it does not follow the factory install.

Side question, how do you like the MBRP cat back? I have the 4" and am curious if you felt a loss in low end torque?

The Mustang GT500 uses 47lb injectors that will work with the V10 wire harness and fuel rails.
