Talking More Power For the Raptor

First off quick thanks to Raul with helping me out with dealing with my endless questions and checking out if things will or won't work. Raul was able to give me a sick deal on the new intake and throttle body spacer from AFE. Install was really simple, quick, and clean. I did, however, have to do a little modding......it didn't like how the stock screws went into the new intake tube so I ran down to Autozone and grabbed some bigger self tapping bolts. Also with my experience with my intake on the 6.4 I figured it would be a good idea to grab some RTV for the MAF sensor

Stock:



First to go on was the spacer, pretty simple and straight forward, I know it doesn't do much for power, but it sounds cool under throttle





Here is the tiny azz screw out of the stock intake, it wasn't to my liking and the last thing I need is for the MAF sensor to fall out in the middle of the desert



So some bigger bolts and RTV later, it looks much better and it ain't going anywhere







Finished product, needless to say I'm very please with how it turned out. There is a little more low end, but you can feel it pull better on the top end and lets not forget the cool sound when cruising.......thanks again Raul!!!

That is clean ......... as far as I know its a single turbo, but it has two impellers inside it, a smaller one and a bigger one to help with turbo lag.......what would I want to change my name, I'm not done with the 6.4

No idea most superchargers that are out only go up to 2007 or 2008, so superchargers for 2009s aren't even out yet
