Tuned 2018 Ford F-150 Runs High 11s: Truckin’ Fast Wednesday
Unspecified bolt-on upgrades and a tune make this the quickest 2018 F-150 of its type.
This week’s Truckin’ Fast Wednesday video comes to us from the YouTube channel of Maurice Cooper and it features what might be the quickest naturally aspirated 2018 Ford F-150. We don’t know for sure, but that is the claim made in this video and with quarter-mile times in the 11.80s, it definitely could be a legitimate claim. In any case, this truck is very quick.
The truck in action in the video above is a 2018 Ford F-150 owned and driven by Henry Cooper. It has the short bed, the short cab, rear-wheel-drive, the 10-speed automatic transmission and the 5.0-liter V8 engine. The details state that the truck has “full bolts-ons” and when asked for more details, he just reiterates full bolt-ons, so we don’t have the exact details.
This truck is staking its claim for a naturally aspirated record, so we know that it doesn’t have nitrous oxide, a supercharger or a turbocharger setup. As for the bolt-ons, we would guess that it has headers, possibly no catalytic convertors, full exhaust, a freer-flowing intake manifold, a bigger throttle body, bigger injectors and a cold air intake setup. The truck also has unspecified weight reduction and the built engine has been tuned by 5-Star Tuning.
Finally, the truck appears to have some wide, sticky tires out back.
In the video above, the F-150 is taking on a “four-eye” Fox Body Mustang in a bracket race. The truck has dialed an 11.87 while the Mustang has dialed something quicker (we don’t get to see any times for the car), giving the pickup a healthy head start.
As we hear the Mustang leave the line as the truck is around the half-track mark, we can see that the win lights on each side of the pickup’s scoreboard are lit up, indicating that the car red-lit on the start.
That is good, too, as the F-150 runs an 11.81 on an 11.87 dial-in, so the truck broke out and could have lost if the Mustang didn’t red light and didn’t run under its dial-in as well.
Per the discussion in the details, we learn that this 11.81 run came with a 116 mile per hour trap speed with a 1.77-second 60-foot time.
