Roush Introduces Supercharger for 6.2 Ford F-150 Raptors
Now previous generation Raptor owners can have fun with forced induction, too!
There’s no denying that the current EcoBoost powered Raptor may be the talk of the town when it comes to high-performance Ford trucks. However, the older 6.2L Raptor is still well loved by those who believe that there’s no replacement for displacement.
For those that want to have their cake and eat it, too, Roush is more than happy to sell you a supercharger to add some forced induction to your V8. American Trucks is here to show us how it’s done with this YouTube video.
The team at American Trucks starts things off by installing a heat exchanger for the air to water intercooler, as well as handling the wiring modifications that needed to be taken care of. With that stuff out of the way, the fun can begin: bolting on shiny new toys!
The Roush Phase II TVS supercharger is said to be good for 590 horsepower. That will make short work out of just about any truck out there, and embarrass all but the most potent street cars, too.
In comparison to a turbocharged setup, there’s no lag, and the power delivery is much more linear. The roots-type blower in this kit bolts directly to the intake manifold, which features an integrated intercooler. Also included is a twin 60mm throttle body and upgraded furl rails with 47 lb/hr injectors.
To add a little sound to the fury, a Roush cat-back exhaust was also added to finish things off.
Naturally, Roush includes a tune with their kit, but instead, the team at American Trucks went with VMP Performamce. VMP has a ton of experience with this supercharger, and the results show.
With a baseline of 345 horsepower at the rear wheels, the truck jumped to 457 horsepower after the supercharger, exhaust, and tune. Torque jumped from 365 lb/ft to 463 lb/ft. That’s a gain of 112 rear wheel horsepower and 98 ft/lbs!
