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.
Various piping and manifolds
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)
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?
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?
99 F250 CCSB V10 - 4"MBRP cat back, SPD y pipe, K&N Drop in, zoo dad, Powerslot cryo rotors up front, hawk pads all 4 corners, weathertech visors, husky liners, 2008 Complete back end, Bilstein 5100 up front and pro comps in rear, Bestop EZ roll. More to come....
