no, you will have to get your own custom kit made if you want to go that route.

Who bought them out?

F2 is a piece of shit just like HTP with how then handled their business and how they left.

If this is true, hopefully the new co. is better.

To the OP; right now there is no supercharger kit for our Duratecs. It'd be cool if the company that bought out F2 would continue the work though.

^^I think He was meaning F2 as a company, not the products, but I could be wrong. Anywho, only time will tell if the R&D on a Duratec S/C will bear fruit or not, but I'm still interested in seeing it happen.

lol, yeah, their "shit" header wouldn't last and would be poppin alternators all the time.

To the OP, I would love to see a SC setup. It's you're not gonna get the power like a turbo, but I'm old school like that.

Their customer service was HORRIBLE. I spent 2 months waiting for my damn sway bar.
Their 2.3 intake for my mazda has a shitty location for the brace and DOES NOT align with stock locations. Either way, stupidly done in that case.

Again, their customer service was HORRIBLE and I am pretty sure they screwed some people over.

HTP definitely screwed many people over and basically stole some people's money.
