MasterCraft's new Super Duty XD seat

Ford’s Super Duty pickups are ubiquitous not just as towing and chase vehicles for desert races, but also at construction and work sites all over the country.  Now owners of these trucks can experience the same level of comfort the Jeep market has come to know through the Baja RS and the same level of engineering as the 3G off-road race seat.  Designed after the legendary MasterCraft Safety Baja RS suspension seat, the new XD seat is one inch wider to take advantage of the generous cabin space in the Super Duty and can comfortably fit up to a 44-inch waist.  This new suspension seat is offered in four popular color combinations to compliment any interior, including All Black – vinyl/cloth; All Black – vinyl only; All Gray – vinyl/cloth; and All Gray – vinyl only.  Unlike many other suspension seats on the market, the MasterCraft Safety meets Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) compliance.

Sanford, FL – For over 26 years of performance tuning, Superchips has been known for dominating other tuning companies with a do-it-the-right-way attitude. Now you can add the highly anticipated 2010 Ford Raptor SVT to the list of impressive Superchips efforts.

The Ford Gas Flashpaq (part no. 1865) and Ford Cortex (part no. 1950) deliver Superchips tuning for impressive horsepower and torque to the wheels, but it’s the improved drivability and performance that have owners excited.

The enthusiast’s most loved Raptor is now even more exciting with two available performance tunes and a towing tune file for heavy load applications. The Raptor out-of-the-box tuning includes many advanced features while also working with most aftermarket cat-back free-flowing exhaust systems and air filter systems.

The performance tune provides enhanced throttle response and shift adjustments, optimized shift firmness, raise rev limiter and noticeable drivability improvements. The gains are substantial with the Superchips 91-Octane performance tune serving up to 33 max horsepower and 36 lb-ft of max torque when equipped. The trucks gain up to 28 max horsepower and 31 lb-ft of max torque when equipped with Superchips 87-Octane performance tune.

Advanced features include the ability to calibrate for tire heights from 28.00” – 38.00”, calibrate for axle gears from 3.08 – 5.13, and raise the speed and rev limiter.

Superchips tuners include many useful features including working as a diagnostic scan tool, real-time in-cabin vehicle sensor display, vehicle performance data logger for 0 – 60 and ¼ miles times, recalibrate for tire diameter and axle gear changes, recalibrate for transfer case gear changes, adjust cooling fan settings and real-time idle up for running accessories. Cortex also includes an exclusive limited 2-year powertrain warranty.
