Truckin’ Fast Wednesday Presented by Nitto Tire

By -

Twin-turbocharged, V8-powered F-150 single cab stretches its legs with ease. The results are nothing short of amazing!

This week’s “Truckin Fast Wednesday” video features a twelfth-generation Ford F-150 getting a full engine diagnostics rundown. In standard form, a V8-powered F-150 from that era would offer 360 horsepower and 380lb-ft of torque at the crankshaft. Once an 18% drivetrain loss is factored in, it results in 295 horsepower and 312lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels.

Of course, you probably would’ve never clicked on this story had that been the case. Not even close, because this blue F-150 makes more than 700 horsepower and nearly 700lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels!

F-150

Built by On3 Performance, this Ford pickup features a set of 60mm turbochargers, and the V8 is fitted with Mustang GT camshafts and an E85 fuel system upgrade. Running on 93-octane pump gas, this package will produce 530-550 rear wheel horsepower, and even more on the ethanol blend.

Towards the end of the dyno run the camera pans down and we see what this blue beast is capable of. The inconspicuous F-150 puts out 702.63 horsepower and 692.3lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels! With the 18% drivetrain loss mentioned above, that figures translate to 857 horsepower and 844lb-ft of torque at the crankshaft.

Nuts!
