    How long before ford supercharges one factory and throws it in the Raptor? Im real interested to see how it will handle towing 20k over a extended period of time, if they can get the heat under control it will be a home run imo.

    I don't think there will be an issue with heat. they are using the larger intercooler. with the super duty there is plenty of room for a large heat exchanger and even a killer chiller for down south. I remember the 454's and 8.1l engines getting supercharged and having no issues towing. I even know a welder that has a supercharged 8.1l in his welding rig. he still drives it and pulls his 5th wheel with that truck. I'm sure he is well over 20k lbs.
    just to add, I plan to get an extended cab dually stx 4x4 with the 7.3 and supercharging it next year if work doesn't crash due to this damn virus. I plan to pull 20k or more lbs with it from time to time whether it be equipment or hay. honestly I don't see why I would be pushing it that hard very often. so long as the transmission still downshifts it's not like you will be pedal to the floor. ftl didn't seem to have a hard time holding 60mph up ike with 16k lbs in tow in stock trim.
    just my thoughts. however I am always up to hear someone else's experiences.

    Great article and video, Sid. I will bet a whole lot of truck guys are going to salivate and drool after hearing about this awesome combo. Yep!

    If there's enough room for the factory air-to-water intercooler system for the PSD I'm sure Whipple will be fine.
