Ford SVT Lightning chip question

I bought a 2001 Lightning last week, I'm still learning this truck so I need some help. I was told that it has a pulley upgrade as the only mod. The boost gauge jumps very quickly to or past 10. I have feeling that this is not a good thing. How do I tell if the pulleys were changed? And ho aggresive of a change. Also, I have read about performance chip upgrades, how do I find out if and what type of chip was installed. I realize these are dumb questions to most of you but I am playing catch up since this is 1st Ford since my '02 Mustang GT. I love the truck btw, it really moves.

Re: Ford SVT Lightning chip question

how come nobody replies to post on this site! WTF? anyways the pulley mod is safe just don't drive it too hard every day like that. due oil changes every 3,000 miles and the higher the mileage, go higher the thickness of oil too. and always, always fill it up with the highest octane pump gas rating, 91-93

* The Roush Nitemare F-150 is intended to be just that-a bad dream-for supercharger-challenged truck owners. Roush will build 100 copies, featuring the company's own Roushcharger producing 445 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque from the three-valve 5.4-liter V8. A Ford limited-slip 3.73 rear axle handles the power, while Roush technicians have pushed the speed limiter to 105 mph.
True to its Ford roots, the Nitemare will be offered exclusively in black for the 2007 model, with an array of Roush interior appointments. Options are limited to rear wing, hood scoop, locking lug nuts and GPS system.
Available only in a regular cab 4x2, the 2007 Roush Nitemare is priced at $41,750 and is on sale now through Ford dealers.
what does that have to do with a pulley set up? wrong post perhaps?

Re: Ford SVT Lightning chip question

easy way to confirm if the pully is stock is too look at it from underneath. if it's big and bulky and not too shiny or unacctractive it's probably stock. for everday driving go with the 4 pound pully and a tune...i aint advertising but read up at lightningrodder.com
