#1 of 5 Supercharging 2003 F150 4x4 Crewcab, 5.4L Triton V8
Sep 25, 2003 (12:00 pm)
Does anyone know if supercharging a 2003 F150 4x4 crewcab will void the manufacturer's warranty? If no, will I be able to install the same supercharger and intercooler found in the SVT Lightning? By the way, what kind of supercharger and intercooler is in the SVT Lightnining?

It will void the warranty IF Ford can prove that it is operating outside stock peramiters.
The dealer MIGHT install and warranty the Eaton S/C .They did on my wife's Roush Mustang but that was part of the Roush package.

Most of the factory supercharged vehicles come with beefed up trans and rear end. If anything will void the manufacturer's warranty, it would be a supercharger, especially if the HP and torque ratings after install is above the manufacturer's spec for the vehicle.
What I would do is call the Ford dealers in your area and see if any of them do SC installs. In those cases, the dealership will warranty the SC and related components rather than Ford. Either way you will be covered.
If you bought yours from Cutter, forget it cause they won't do it.
