    I am ordering on Monday. I got a great deal on it @ 30% off. The install looks pretty straightforward. Am I correct on thinking that? Also any info about it messing around with my warranty?

    Thanks,
    Andy

    Hey Andy I’m looking forward to hearing how you like the Whipple Supercharger. Dose the stage 1 kit come with a Whipple tune ? Good luck with your upgrade post a few pictures

    From reading the installation instructions, everything is the same size as OEM so I'm assuming nothing needs to be relocated.

    I called and spoke to a tech at Whipple. The 180 torque rating is at the crank.I asked many different mod shops this week about the whipple kit and all of them praised it. They said it is definitely worth it and you wont be disappointed.To Andy and anyone else ordering it Whipple said the power programmer will not be shipping until December 12, 2017. They told me I will have to send my computer in for a flash tune. I will buy this but only after they have released the flash programmer. Just an FYI to everyone ordering it now. Call Whipple and confirm your programmer is included.

    Not yet a raptor owner. A supercharger is high on my list of "needs" so trying to decide how important it is to have one already on at time of purchase. Anyone all finish the install? Was it as expected? How are your results? ....

    Wait until you get the truck. A supercharger will only work on a Gen 1. Gen 1 is a great truck, supercharger will make it Haul ass! Ask Big Bill. He has a superscrew. Supercharged Gen 1 Crewcab.

    Appreciate the reply. I may be confused but thought Whipple makes a supercharger for gen 2. Not the same as the stage 1 kit from Whipple. 700 hp from the ‘18 Whipple edition?

    That's ok its better to always ask many questions. No question is ever stupid. Gen 2 can use whipple products, but intercooler upgrade only as 2017 and 2018 Raptors are V6 ecoboost twin turbo engines. Gen 1 is 5.4 litre or 6.2 which uses a supercharger. Now you can add turbos to Gen 1. But you cannot add super charger to Gen 2, as its already Turbo charged. Always here to help. Test drive both versions. They are both great trucks. You really wont need to touch the motor on the Gen 2 as its fast out of the box. Plus if your spending 70,000 dollars you want to preserve your factory warrenty. Trust me!

    Hey there Mr Popeil, not really sure if it ever happened. I haven't heard any feedback yet from anyone. I really want to do it but my asshole dealership will absoloutly VOID my warrenty. They already warned me. Its a real bummer as I paid extra for the extended warrenty. Its supposed to be amazing. It claims to introduce 4 lbs of boost into the midrange thus bringing the turbos on sooner is what I have been told. The Whipple kit claims 525 hp and 710 ftlbs torque. Andy or R2 or Big Bill would know.

    Hmmm- that is a demon i am fighting as well...it would have to really be a huge difference over stock(not just numbers but real world feel) to make it worth the warranty risk. I work at a Ford dealer so that helps.
    Know that it only can void your warranty if they can prove it caused the failure....in which the odds are good.
    From what I have read, people are stating that you see the difference in NORMAL driving mode and suggest not using SPORT with certain tunes. I want to know if you feel an increase in SPORt and BAJA modes. BAJA is already a world of difference on the street vs NORMAL mode. Once i found out about the trick you can put it in 2wd when in BAJA

    MrPopeil= Go to U=tube and type in Lasco Ford Raptor. This Ford dealership takes the whipple kit and Installs it at the dealership. Then they Warrenty it. Amazing huh. The gains are HUGE! Watch the video and let me know what you think. Its the silver 2017 Raptor with blow off valve.

    Hey Rapdav good find thanks for sharing. It’s amazing how we adapt to the speed of these Awesome trucks.I wanted more speed for my Gen1 so I put on a Whipple 2.9 the only thing I would have done differently is have the dealership put on the Supercharger with full warranty as per Rapdav’s info. Currently I’m 700+hp at the crank and 523RWHP on the dyno. The truck is a dream to drive. You guys with the 18s are absolutely bad ass to the bone.

    Awesome! let us know how you like it. I am going to probably purchase one after the tax return comes in. That way I won't feel the heat from the old lady. Lol
