SVTF + Forced Induction = Durability?

What kind of durability can you expect from the stock SVT engine with boost added? I paid for the 100,000 mile warranty so that'd be voided if I added boost. How do the engines hold up?

Yes the warrenty is going to be void. I heard most SVT's react well to boost. Just don't push it too much like 18lbs of boost. Also eventually if you're running high boost you might run into clutch/flywheel issues. What are you looking into? Also is your 36k warrenty over with?

No, I've only got 27,000 miles on the car. I was thinking about a ProCharger. I don't really know. I doubt I'll end up doing FI simply because I paid a lot for the extended warranty. I'm thinking about talking to Tom shortly about a custom tune and N/A power options.

Oh I see, I also looked into forced induction but have decided (for the time being) that it is going to have to be set aside due to other costs. I'm going to be running all N/A. Good luck man.

The jackson racing kit doesn't void your warranty. Since its sold through Ford Racing. Its supposed to be pretty easy to install, but it doesn't exactly put down monster numbers.

^ are you suuuurree about that? that doesnt make any sense

as for the boost thing..since yall have forged rods, the only that would go out fast would be clutch/axles/motor mounts..stuff like that, that is givin a good tune

It's been a while (maybe a year or so) since I looked at the JRSC, but I could have sworn that they said you could keep the warranty. Maybe its only if you have a dealer install it. Maybe I'm just getting senile, I'm probably wrong.

^^No the JRSC does not keep your car under warrenty. You can get the JRSC warrentied through the dealer if they install it, but thats major money.

This just is not true, ANY FI added to your car will void ALL powertrain warranty even if it is installed at the Ford dealership

Now if you mean a warranty on the jrsc unit it self only than yes but you still wont have a engine , clutch , trans warranty through Ford
