Ford Performance Supercharger Kit Boosts F-150 V8 Output to 700 HP

The Ford Performance Supercharger Kit will be available for order before the end of the year

  • The 5.0-litre Coyote V8 produces 400 horsepower.

  • The Whipple supercharger is covered by a 3-year/30,000-mile warranty.

  • The supercharger will enable the F-150 to reach 60 mph in under 5 seconds.

As the industry shuffles over to EVs, albeit slowly in North America, the American automakers are having a ball introducing massively-powerful vehicles including full-size trucks. Although the Ford Raptor R, with a boosted V8, is coming, it might not arrive fast enough for some. Enter Ford Performance and their supercharger kit.

The 2022 Ford Raptor R Will Get V8 Power

This kit will bolt onto any F-150’s Coyote 5.0-litre V8 and severely boost power. From the standard 400 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque, the Whipple supercharger will increase output to a staggering 700 and 590 respectively. This jump in power is enough to launch the 5,000+ lb F-150 to 60 mph from a standstill in under 5 seconds.

These numbers are close to the planned V8-power Raptor R. The top-dog Raptor is rumoured to get the Mustang Shelby GT500’s supercharged 5.2-litre V8 which makes 760 horsepower and 625 lb.-ft. of torque.

Beyond the power, the other advantage to this kit is that, if it’s installed by a Ford dealer, it will be covered by a 3-year/30,000-mile warranty. Pricing is unknown however Road and Track dug up the pricing for the 2018-2020 V8 Supercharged kit and it retailed for $7,800.
