Roush Phase 2 Ford F-150 to Pack 650 Horsepower
Roush Performance rolled out their first high performance package for the 2015-2016 Ford F-150 with the 5.0L V8 last year and with a combination of 600 horsepower and 557 lb-ft of torque, the Roushcharged F-150 is a force to be reckoned with. However, those lofty engine figures aren’t enough for some people, so Roush is said to be working on a Phase 2 package for the F-150 which will lift the output to 650 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque.
There is no information on the Roush Performance website yet, but according to the folks at BoldRide, the new F-150 is soon to benefit from a Roush Phase 2 kit. That package will have the same unique exterior features (grille, bumpers, fender flares, graphics, wheels) and the same side-exist exhaust system as the Phase 1 kit, and I suspect that it will also have a Roush supercharger.
The 600 hp package comes with a TVS2300 unit and I believe that without any major modifications shy of perhaps some larger injectors, that unit could work with the 5.0L V8 to produce 650 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. There is also the possibility that the Roush Phase 2 kit will add some other engine components or a different supercharger, but the bottom line is that it will pack 650 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque.
The “bad news” is that the Roush Phase 1 package for the Ford F-150 does not meet emission standards in CARB states, so it is technically only legal in 39 states. With the Phase 2 kit packing more power, the odds of that passing when Phase 1 does not are very low, but this kit will still make the new F-150 into one of the baddest trucks on the road for those folks in the rest of the country.
