Twin Turbo Ford F-150 Takes On Modified Chevy Camaro: Video

Those that love a good, fast, heavily-modified Ford F-150 pickups have been entertained on multiple occasions by the folks at Hoonigan via their This vs That series, with such machines taking on everything from a heavily-modified Mazda RX-7 to an 1,150 horsepower Subaru WRX STI to a 900 horsepower Audi S4. Now, Hoonigan is back with yet another high-horsepower Ford F-150 – this time, of the twin turbocharged variety – which it recently pitted against a Chevy Camaro pumping out a whopping 1,800 horsepower.

This time, however, the race doesn’t take place at Hoonigan’s own piece of tarmac, but rather, Texas Motorsports Park, a legitimate drag strip in Ennis. As one might imagine, this 2020 Ford F-150 regular cab short bed pickup is no slouch, as it’s packing a heavily modified Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote powerplant with a sleeved block, a pair of Precision 7475 turbos, headers, and a host of custom parts like the intake. However, the stock 10-speed has been replaced by a built TH400 in this case, which is necessary since this combo cranks out 1,500-1,600 horsepower.

In the other lane, we have a 1971 Chevy Camaro that’s packing a 5.3L V8 with a pair of turbos itself, albeit on a stock block with a two-speed Powerglide gearbox backing it up. However, it’s also equipped with goodies like Kraken heads and it runs on alcohol, with less weight to push around than the Ford F-150 – not to mention an output of 1,800 horsepower on full boost with a shot of nitrous.

Regardless, the first race is quite close as the Camaro wins by just a couple of car lengths, though its owner claims that he lost a cylinder on the way. Despite that, the two press on and line up for a second race, and the Camaro once again wins by a slim margin. However, it’s worth pointing out that the Ford F-150 has a full interior and isn’t quite the stripped-down, dedicated racer the Chevy is, which makes this result all the more impressive.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.
