TRUCKIN’ FAST Near-Stock 2012 F-150 Runs Mid 13s
This week’s Truckin’ Fast video features a 2012 Ford F-150 powered by the 5.0L V8. The most common modifications for a modern pickup truck are things like an engine tune, a K&N cold air intake, a freer flowing Y-pipe and a Magnaflow muffler.
While none of these items add huge power, they add enough power to help propel this regular cab, short bed F-150 to roar down the quarter mile in the mid 13 second range. Also, based on his burnout and his launch, I would guess that this F-150 has some stickier than stock tires.
With a time of 13.6 and a trap speed of 100 miles per hour, this very little modified Ford F-150 pickup gets down the drag strip as fast as some newer V8-powered pony cars so while it wasn’t able to keep up with the 11 second 1st gen Camaro in the far lane – this is still a mighty respectable quarter mile time for a truck with so little work done.
Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
