Twin superchargers, Ford GT block, and some serious internals may make this the baddest Ford Lightning engine, ever?

The owner sent me these pics and said "I think you're going to like my truck."
Well, he was right but mostly I liked the insane 5.4L DOHC V-8 with twin superchargers. It's awesome. As the owner of a supercharger remanufacturer, he has the inside track on parts and insight but he also had the will power to bring this combo to fruition.
The white Lightning (no pun intended) looks mostly stock from the outside, but pop the hood and "oohs" and "ahhs" are all that can heard.
Powdercoated Ford GT light blue, the engine wins awards where ever it goes. He wants a cover and won't get it, so you may never see it in the mag, but here are some pics.
