Thanks for your input DYNOTECH. I think Ford has been pretty conservative with their ratings, at least on the V-8's, for a while. Either that or other manufacturers are squeeking every last HP they can out of each dyno run. I really can't wait for some comparisons between the Ford and Chevy in the half ton trucks - the Raptor is going to be the better performing truck hands down, of that I'm sure.
There has been some frustration about the Raptor not getting special engine treatment from SVT, I'm pretty sure the 6.2L Boss will quiet those critics.
Please keep us posted if you hear anything else!
