Anybody got a 2.3L Whipple on their Lightning or Harley Davidson F-150?

I am wondering if anyone here has the 2.3L Whipple supercharger upgrade on their truck and if I can somehow get measurements as to how much shorter than the stock Eaton setup it is. I have a 2003 F-250 with the 5.4 and the ZF6 and I would love to be able to put a Lightning or Harley motor into the truck. I am aware that the few that have done it before have used a 2-3" body lift to gain the necessary clearance for the stock blower setup to clear the cowl, but I really don't want to install a body lift if I can get around it. Looking at the pictures from this article, it looks like the Whipple unit is considerably shorter than the Eaton unit, but I don't want to start down the path of buying parts without knowing that it will fit.

Any help would be appreciated.

Post up over at LightningRodder.com and ask the guys to measure theirs.

I sold mine before I ever installed it, so I'm not too much help, sorry.
