Have recently fitted a Raptor supercharger to my ute,my disc drive is down so no pics yet but a little about it here.
Quality of the kit is very very good.
Power is awesome , the diff and stock auto are holding it back a bit from a standing start,once the revs build it's all go.A shorter diff and stallie would have me losing my licence pretty quickly.
Will get it on a Dyno ASAP.
I will run some 0 to 60 and 0 to 100 numbers soon and post up.
Torque is awesome as the auto gearbox will happily shift up gears going up a hill in traffic.The edit from Chiptorque that is with the kit has really helped the auto under power it changes crisply and quickly now.
Fuel economy is actually better when i drive normally but when i push it it uses a bit more ,will work out some economy facts if anyone interested.
Fitment of kit is great everything goes where it's supposed to.The MAP sensor is the only problem as it's a royal pain in the but,get an Auto lecky to do this .
This kit feels like it came out of the Ford factory the car is so driveable and user friendly.
I have to go now it's 18 degrees outside country roads and all that,so i'll just have to go for a drive.

Steve it took me about 3hours to fit the Supercharger as all my tools are at work,but it took me about 6 hours to swap out the MAP sensor tucked away in behind the inlet manifold and the fuel rail.
I'd rather not discuss price,but i think they are a bit over 5K retail.
It's the best money i've ever spent Steve,

Mate i recon a 3000rpm stall and 3.91 diff gears and you will not need any thing else(bar the exhaust) done.

So has the sound of yours died down a little bit, i notice that if i sit stationary and hit the gas the car snakes up the road sliding side ways.

Im getting 5psi by3000 rpm what about you ?

Diff gears yes ,stallie not for me.
I don't know if it's died down or i'm used to it.
Going on a shootout dyno on Thursday,will know more then.The 242RWKW i got on the mates dyno Dynamic seems a little high i reckon.
I got smoked by a Toyote 2WD hilux the other day going to work as i just sat there and made blue smoke.The guys in the Tojo and the Corolla behind it where laughing so hard they nearly collided.

ouch

well the diff gears are gonna make take-offs worse but adding LSD will help.

Bit of feathering off the line and you should be alright

The auto and diff are holding it back from a standing start but when you punch it from the lights, it Smokes up the rears? How so? use a little bit less throttle and you should rip away from the line if it can smoke the treads.

The lads at AUTO-TECH in Toowoomba put a 3 inch system in it today as well as blue tagging it,so she's legal .
The 3 inch system is louder in the cab but i'll sort that out soon.
Car is more responsive,revs quicker and more importantly uses less fuel at low loads.
The auto is a bit confused now but doing a 300K round trip tomorrow should sort it's poor little brain out.
Dyno time will help as well.
