Raptor supercharger

I wonder if the following will fit the 3.6 LLT engine! I doubt it but I figured let me check anyway.

interesting find, but i doubt our LLT's can handle 10 lbs of boost (more like 6) much less 20

it makes about 370rwhp at 10-20psi if I am converting it right. That superchager looks smaller than the RX and IPF units. So it's possible to get 10-20psi of boost out of this to equal their units power.

Won't fit. The alloytec/ly7 doesn't have fueling issues like the LLT so bigger boost is easily on the cards. Generally safe to around 12psi-14psi. Anything over that and your risking it on stock internals. Raptor is also a belt driven turbo, which has it's pro's and con's compared to a Vortech (gear driven).

LFX doesn't have these issues, I wonder why vendors aren't pushing higher boost with the new motor?

kuzman is correct. The Ly7 is a traditional port injection so it was just adding larger capacity injectors.

What about on the LFX and adding new ZL1 fuel pump/injectors? Or wa it just the fuel pump you swapped on the orange beast?

The law of diminishing returns. IPF has tried upping boost but didn't get anything more out of it, at least without adding more components and complexity.

Bigger pulley? Meth injection? Better tune?

I doubt that, RX seems to have reached new levels of performance with their twin turbos. (Not bashing anyone just saying..)
