Default Roush Supercharger Question???

Wondering what the rough cost to install a Roush Intercooled Supercharger on my 07 FX2 5.4, I just wanna get a ballpark price so i know what to expect before i spend 5k on a charger.

supercharger + labor + additional parts = under $1,000? I wanna see the receipt on this.

Hmm, I love when people say"get this, its awesome". If you're gonna say that' at least have some numbers to show how awesome it is. Duh any superchargers gonna make it feel awesome. The question is how awesome. Quarter mile times, dyno sheet, info like that is far more helpful.

I believe he was just talking about installation. Not the actual charger itself. I could be wrong, but thats how I read it.

the non intercooled version can be had for about 2700 bucks from Roush IIRC, and they claim the install time is 10 hours.


By the time you change the plugs, etc, plus fresh fluids and filters, and a new serpentine belt, I bet that number is closer 13 hours.

4 grand for 112 HP at the crank... it's a bit pricey, more so if you go with the intercooled version. Then there is that pesky top speed limiter, when Roush re-programs your ECM, they don't give you more than 5 MPH more on the top end of the limiter, so you are barely going to break double digits.

I can take my rice bike, and break into triple digits in second gear, and the bike was 6800 bucks brand new in 2003... can buy them used all day long for 3500 bucks in today's dollars. Don't get me wrong I like my truck, but it isn't ever going to be cost effective or practical to get performance or speed out of it.

For most F150 drivers it is not about top speed, more performance off the line and passing power (helps with towing and loaded truck performance as well as just all around fun factor).

Your "rice bike" is never going to hit triple digit speeds towing the F150, but I bet the F150 could hit 20-30 over the speed limit all day long towing the "rice bike", stock, not even with a supercharger!!!

Seems to me comparing the "rice bike" and the F150 is like comparing apples and cats.

^^^^
I believe you're missing the point entirely... If you want performance.. Save a little cash and buy a "rice bike" for 3500.. Then you keep the reliablity of your truck and can have way more fun on you bike and save money in the long run.. Cause a supercharger not only cost more.. But superchargers decrease mpg.. While on the other hand.. You can run the **** outta that bike and still get 20 mpg

Oh lord this has turned into one of those threads where everyone comes to spew there ignorance. First of all the guy is looking for a supercharger for his truck, not a rice rocket. He may be towing which is what the supercharger kits are intended for. Making the truck faster is just a plus. Secondly he may want some power in thrills from the comfort of his truck and not laying across a gas tank. And lastly superchargers do not decress mpg. You can drive the truck the way you always did and never get in to boost and keep your mpg. On the highway you never see boost unless you're passing so no change there either.
