Tuned EcoBoost F-150 Makes a Monster Burnout Look Easy: Tire Smokin’ Tuesday

By -

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.

Ford F-150 Pre Burnout

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.

Bird’s-Eye Burnout

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.

MPT F-150 Burnout Begin

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.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
