Truckin’ Fast Wednesday: 2007 F-150 Runs a 12.7

By -

Long before the introduction of turbocharged EcoBoost engines, supercharged Ford V8 motors ruled the strip.

This week’s “Truckin’ Fast Wednesday” video features a 2007 Ford F-150 powered by a 5.4L V8 motor. In stock form it produced 300 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque, but this particular one makes far more power than that thanks to a 2.3L Whipple supercharger. In addition, a high-flow exhaust system plays a throaty tune for our ears.

We don’t know exactly what else this F-150 has had upgraded, but we don’t need a full mods list to appreciate how fast it really is. The Ford F-150 is able to slay the quarter-mile in 12.7 seconds at 106 mph while running against a Mitsubishi Eclipse.

After looking a little closer at jason barker‘s YouTube channel, we found the dyno video below. This second video shows us that this Ford truck is quite the sleeper, looking like every other 2007 F-150 on the road with the exception of the aftermarket wheels and tires.

The Whipple-blown F-150 makes a hard dyno run, resulting in power figures of 475 horsepower and 532 lb-ft of torque. Figure that in stock form, the 5.4L V8 makes roughly 240 horsepower and 292 lb-ft of torque at the wheels, so the new setup added around 235 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque at the wheels.

Pretty darn good if you ask us. Enjoy!
