2021 F-250 Super duty
I brought a 2021 F-250 with 7.3 back in December with the intent to add a Whipple supercharger. I was told by Whipple it would be available in March however it’s still not available and no time estimate. So last week I decided to go with the Pro-charger model but discovered since mine has dual alternators that won’t work either. I asked some Ford people about removing the backup alternator to make room but no one I spoke to knows what that means for the PCM and if I will get error codes or worse a non-charging battery. Any ideas or comments are much appreciate.

As far as I know, no one here has a super charger yet. The manufacturers are probably your best resource for info.
 
Unfortunately, based on my own experiences with upgrades on my Tremor, Harley and other stuff I do, your most immediate and only course of action is patience.

Whipple stin n/a


I have been waiting for whipple because I prefer positive displacement blowers but the procharger is not a bad package just more suitable for higher rpm boost pressure vs lower rpm.
Air temps on the procharger will be better, we have yet to see what heat soak would look like with the whipple.

Im sure you could drop it down to a single alternator/battery but unlikely you will find anyone who can tell you for sure, will likely be some trial and error and possible forscan changes. Will the whipple work with dual alternators? If so I would prob try to return or resale and wait, if not I would start taking shit off and see what happens. :)
 
Wait for the Whipple!!!!

I think you could come up with some brackets for the Procharger and both alternators but it will be a huge PITA. You are talking about possible different belt lengths and everything from hardware, brakes and even sensor wiring may be messed up.

I am interested to see if somebody can set up a "hairdryer"on a double alt. engine.

I didn't know the procharger was not compatible with dual alternator trucks! Guess I can remove that from the "someday" mod list! :(
 
Thought: could you try disconnecting one of the alternators and just see what happens? That would simulate it being removed entirely without touching the belts. I can’t see it permanently damaging the truck. That would let you know about any codes that could be thrown, if any.

Something else to verify is the alternator ratings: does one of the alternators from the dual setup provide the same or greater power as the single alternator setup? If so, then no concerns.

If it doesn’t then you may need to swap in the alternator from the single setup.

Edit: to clarify, I’m referring to disconnecting one of the alternators electrically only, but leaving it mounted, to see what would happen.
 
Personally, I'd hold out for the Whipple, IMO. They make such a great product, and it will make the 7.3L even more of a beast!
 
Just heard myself from Whipple today and now looking at summer. Like many other manufactures people and parts availability is in very tight demand. One way or another you could run a single alternator, and I know I have seen something in FORscan about dual alternators, so it may be as easy as removing and a simple setting adjustment.

I ran the Procharger on my 12 Raptor 6.2 and mostly liked it. It was very drivable for everyday on road and fun off road. But I could have used the extra low end of a Whipple type blower. The reason I went with the Procharger was lower intake are temps and it being so much easier on the engine. If you have both blower types on the same motor, and both are providing 700 hp, the Procharger unit will take a lot less horsepower to run.

Most likely if my Raptor had the Procharger with 4.30 gears instead of 4.10, the 10 speed trans, and more cubic inches that the 7.3 has over the 6.2, it might have made up for these shortcomings. It looks like I will hold out for the Whipple.

It is not compatible. The procharger uses the mount that the second alt uses. Whether or not you can remove the second alt and be ok, I have no idea.

Also following the Whipple.... they do not recommend towing if installed.

So......

No towing would rule whipple out, too. What's the issue there?
