I'd like to see the torque numbers as well.

On the 11-17's you can no longer run e85 once you install the whipple. The fuel system would be grossly undersized. It takes a LOT of e85 to make that kind of power. The stock fuel pump works with e85 at stock power levels so you don't have to change it with the kit and e10.

With the 12:1 compression I don't think we will be running 13 psi on 93 octane.

And we still don't know if that's with the stock throttle body or their upgrade.
There’s a pic on FB...it’s definitely the big TB.
3.75” pulley.

Thanks Mike for clarification, that makes sense. I did find a window sticker for a RCSB that's equipped almost identical to what I ordered that does say it's FFV compatible so I wasn't going crazy. Obviously it will not be not with a Whipple installed for the reason you've given.

Edit: Lethal published this teaser on YouTube today.

If you look at my window sticker is does not show as a FFV. I wonder what would cause one to be a FFV and one not to be a FFV. Either way it doesn’t matter since I preordered a 2018 Whipple on Black Friday through Stage3.

That is odd...Maybe it has something to do the truck I posted the window sticker and maybe mine are more designed as a work truck and sold in the Midwest where E85 readily available.

EDIT: The work truck theory got shot down. I guy in the VIN tracking thread posted a sticker for his Platnum and it's a FFV truck. It must be delivery location. It really doesn't matter if you're installing a Whipple, just interesting.

I know Ford does change the standard equipment on Powerstroke Superduty trucks where the Trucks built for northern states are equipped with an electric supplemental heater, so perhaps it's something like that. Maybe even something to do with having the larger fuel tank were standard cabs only come with the smaller tank.

I also have my Whipple pre-ordered from Lethal Performance but I didn't order until the day after Christmas when they had the 15% off sale. With Lethal I added in the big throttle body and fan option then they discounted 15% off the total. It didn't look like Stage 3 discounted the options, not a big deal either way.

Interestingly when I checked Whipple's site for the 2018 F150 SC they don't show the electric fans as an option on the 2018, I'm not sure what's up with that?

Great numbers for 91 oct. I bet it will pick up 200 whp on e85.

Right but as Engineer Mike pointed out the stock fuel system can't supply enough E85 a those high power levels.

In my way of thinking this could cause the engine to run lean and nuke itself. I'm thinking about this right?

More I think about it, a wideband AFR gauge like UnBroken has would be a wise investment.
