I found out my build number by calling SVT for which I had to provide the VIN number. At that time, they mailed out a certificate indicating build number.

One other thing I did not mention, fixed displacement superchargers such as the Eaton (roots) and the Lysholm twin screw (Whipple, Kenne Bell) will have an operating effeciency based on rotor speed. The faster it spins the more boost you get. However, there is a trade off in terms of discharge temperature as well as other factors that will effect boost at higher RPM. Too fast, the supercharger will overheat with may result in bearing failures, or worse such as rotor failure. I believe that FORD incorporated a boost purge or by-pass on overcharge at high RPMs. There is a way to prevent that by altering the vacuum lines on the by-pass valve which is one thing I have not done. I believe it is called "the boost by-pass mod".
