If you want Ford F-150 Raptor R levels of power, but in the form of a street truck, you’ll have to build one out yourself. Luckily, however, Roush Performance makes it easy to do. All you need is an F-150 with a Coyote V8 engine. And, would you look at that, you can get that howling 5.0L motor in just about every trim level, including the F-150 XL work truck in single cab 4×2 configuration. That gives you a V8 truck platform for under $40,000, and with the addition of a Roush performance Supercharger System for the 2021-2023 Ford F-150, you’re looking at an additional 305 horsepower over stock.
2021-2023 Roush Ford F-150 Supercharger System: Details
The Roush Performance Supercharger System for the Ford F-150 boosted power output to 705 horsepower and 635 lb-ft of torque. The Roush engineers developed the system with an optimized billet aluminum viscous crankshaft damper to improve the durability and longevity of the supercharged 5.0L V8 engine. During their rigorous development and testing process, it was determined to be necessary to add a unique Roush damper to the kit to reduce the increased torsional inputs needed to handle the increased power level.
Also included in the Roush Ford F-150 Supercharger Kit is a set of uniquely designed spark plugs explicitly developed for supercharger applications. The new spark plugs are optimized for the forced induction combustion process and reduce the pre-ignition / detonation risks from the added power of the supercharger.
The Roush R2650 TVS supercharger is a roots-type positive displacement supercharger with twin four-lobe rotors twisted 170 degrees. By comparison, the original Eaton supercharger rotating assembly featured three lobes twisted 60 degrees. The fourth lobe and added twist provided many benefits, including thermal efficiency, higher volumetric capacity, higher operating speeds, and more.
As always, this power comes with peace of mind as the Supercharger System is backed by their 3-year/36,000-mile limited powertrain warranty when installed by a certified ASE technician. Not only that, but the kit also went through extensive testing to validate cooling performance, AC performance, and towing capability. The development team went as far as utilizing a cold chamber at -20 degrees Fahrenheit cold starts to validate reliability. In addition, over 900 hours of dyno engine durability and testing were completed to validate the supercharger and meet Roush’s engine durability requirements.
If you want to purchase a Roush Performance Ford F-150 Supercharger Kit, you can do so on their website. But be prepared, as the price will set you back $8,649.99, and that’s without installation. Want to surprise Hellcats for under $50-grand? This is how you do it.
