Default The F150 is under the knife at the FORD dealer as we speak..

Just dropped it off today but should be done thursday or friday. I have talked about it before but its now getting installed. I went with the Roush intercooled supercharger kit. Adds 145 hp to the 300 hp 24v 5.4 so I should have 445 hp. I dont expect it to be ford lightning quick but the Roush guy told me to expect a 5.0 second 0-60 by the time they are done.

...and they do...a friend of mine has a Roush Mustang and he drives the car like if it was stolen...they have replaced the clutch and other items with no questions asked. I assume that Roush knows that whomever buys their cars, they are going to pound on them

I would assume the PCM will need some tinkering PCM is the Dealer going to do all that as was well.? Sounds great though Shadow . ought to make that 150 grow some hair on it'* ****. A 5 second '60 seems way off though. That Hp range would put my fat butted GXP in the 5 flat range and your talking a full sized pickup. BUT I'll bet your going to get some bugged eyed people as you scoot past them

I know for a fact that the kit includes recalibration of the PCM.
