I think the Stage 1 warranty costs a few hundred, I don't know if there is any charge for the Stage 2
Save your money, you are likely to void that warranty anyways with a custom tune or additional parts. The kits are very safe if tuned correctly and kept sane.

No custom tune for me, whatever Tune Ford uses (assuming Whipple's canned). I'm more worried about the coyote's engine problems that are springing up on youtube for the last year. I haven't seen any complaints on the F150's coyote. A lot of pissed off people...and not all of them are posting videos about it.

I had a 2012 Mustang with a 5.0, and now my 2016 F150 with the 5.0, no issues with either engine to date. Social media can sometimes blow things out of proportion, and compared to some of Fords current engineering disasters the 5.0 is not even on the list lol. If you keep the power limits reasonable I wouldn't bee too concerned, as supercharged coyotes are a known quantity at this point and the 2018+ engines are much stronger then last gen engines, which were already pretty stout. There will always be tuning hiccups, but as we get through the rest of this year the aftermarket will figure out the 10spd and the dual injection system and it will be back to business as usual. Sooner rather than later you will grow tired of the stock Whipple tune which I've gathered from this forum is just about as bottled up as the stock Roush tune.

But its never bad to play it safe, so I get where you are coming from, and any supercharger will turn these trucks into smile generators.

My observations are that the stock roush tune makes 490-515. Aftermarket cal brings it up 550-560 with no other cjanges. The canned whipple tune seems to be more like 580-640.

I don't think you can go wrong either way. You can get a Whipple now. The Hellion kit isn't available yet last I saw.

If you are talking about the "TICK"? it seems like changing the oil to 5W-50 for folks having the issue has either:
a) fixed the problem.
b) masked it so nobody cares.



I haven't had any ticking but I'll be changing to 5W-50 this weekend. I changed my oil prior to installing the Whipple with the original weight.

I've got about 2500 miles on it now so its time to change it, a bit early.

Seems like the canned whipple allows for more power, especially a Stage 2. As far as turbos go I have a supercharged car now and I like the linear power. My wife will be driving the truck alot and I don't want any suprises for her when the turbos start spinning up so a SC is the best bet. It also has been stated that the everyday drivability stays mostly intact.
