Tuned EcoBoost F-150 Makes a Monster Burnout Look Easy: Tire Smokin’ Tuesday
F-150 looks like an average pickup on the work site, but it packs 500 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque.
This week’s Tire Smokin’ Tuesday video comes to us from the YouTube channel of Ramzes TheRaver and it features a 2017 Ford F-150 roasting its rear tires along a narrow driveway. In stock form, a 2017 F-150 with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 will definitely do a burnout, but with some help from the folks at More Power Tuning, this half-ton Ford puts on an incredible rolling smoke show.
The Tuned EcoBoost
When a 2017 Ford F-150 rolls off of the assembly line with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, it offers 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, making it one of the most powerful half-ton engines on the market while also being the second-most powerful gasoline V6 in the truck world, trailing only the high output EcoBoost in the Raptor. That available power makes the F-150 one of the most capable trucks in the class in terms of towing capabilities and it also makes the bestselling half-ton in America quite quick, but for some people, stock power isn’t enough.
For those people, shops like More Power Tuning are ready and able to add big power to your EcoBoost pickup. This particular F-150 has the company’s PR-X 93-octane tune, which the video claims lifts the output to 500 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque, but those numbers could include other upgrades.
In any case, this Ford truck clearly packs big tire-shredding torque.
This burnout action is captured from above, with the man holding the camera perched on a roof overlooking the driveway in which the F-150 is parked. We see the driver get in and begin to back up, at which point it becomes apparent that the truck is running. It is so quiet that you can’t tell that the engine is running, and based on how quiet the F-150 is during the burnout, it definitely doesn’t have any exhaust upgrades.
The driver only stays in one spot for a few seconds, letting the truck drift forward as smoke pours from one side of the rear end. As the F-150 gets further from the camera, the other rear wheel begins to spin as well, with the half-ton Ford truck painting two stripes up the narrow driveway.
