Watch A Tuned Ford F-150 EcoBoost Take All Comers At The Strip: Video

Sponsored Links

While there is perhaps something a bit unusual about the Ford F-150’s most potent, range-topping engine being a V6 rather than a V8, that V6 becomes very difficult to take umbrage with once performance is taken into account. Even before its revision for 2017, the twin-turbocharged, 3.5L EcoBoost V6 made an impressive 365 horsepower and 420 lb-ft from the factory. Now that direct injection and various other enhancements have been added, those numbers stand at 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft.

Of course, there’s always more power available to those with a good tune, and in the video above, we get to see what happens when a 2017 Ford F-150 with the 3.5L EcoBoost is tuned by Brew City Boost out of Wisconsin. The truck dominates on the drag strip, taking on a 2017 Camaro ZL1, a Shelby GT350R, a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, and plenty else beside.

We’re not entirely sure what all has been done to this F-150 EcoBoost; according to Road & Track, the list of mods includes an intake and exhaust, methanol injection, and a software tune. The resulting power is unknown, but the truck is reportedly pushing 18 psi of boost and burning E50.

  1. Test and Tune night is not Heads up drag racing. Each driver leaves when ever they want, they are running for time. Lets see the timeslips for each run. I bet that ZL1 since it chased down the truck at the end, was probably 2 secondeds quicker. Basically this no different then some ricer video flyby.

  2. Huh…the stock Ford numbers for HP and TQ is at the fly wheel. A tune will be at the wheels because it was on a dyno 😉
