Truckin’ Fast Wednesday: Twin-Turbo V8 Raptor on the Dyno
A modified 2012 Ford F-150 Raptor puts out 572 horsepower and 621 lb-ft of torque.
This week’s “Truckin Fast Wednesday” takes us away from the race track and into the dyno room of Delk Performance. We don’t actually get to see this boosted Raptor stretching its muscles, but with the numbers shown at the end of the video there’s no question this truck is fast in any setting.
This modified 2012 Ford SVT Raptor is powered by a naturally aspired 6.2L V8, which delivers 411 horsepower and 434 lb-ft of torque. Real world dyno tests have found that the V8 Raptor lays down around 325 horsepower and 340lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels. Those figures made the previous Raptor the most powerful stock F-150, but some people need more power when blasting through the woods with their half-ton Ford truck.
For those folks, the Hellion Twin Turbo Kit for the V8 Raptor kicks things up a notch, and this video shows us by just how much. Oddly enough, this Raptor is very quiet when making the short and hard pull on the rollers, so this might be a heck of a sleeper. At least until the turbos spool up!
In the end, this Raptor lays down 572 rear-wheel horsepower and 621.4 lb-ft of torque, meaning that the kit added roughly 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque.
