The new Raptor is running the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6, and you can’t strap the supercharger onto that. But Hennessey still squeezed 605 hp and wants to show you the difference between the stock truck and its new VelociRaptor with the drag race, of course.
While the conclusion of the 1/4 mile race is foregone, it is still fun to watch what happens. Right off a line, you can tell the tuned engine uses more boost to pull ahead. Check out the valve opening behind the grille.
We can’t see a finish line and no times were released, but Hennessey boasts its truck being eight lengths ahead. And why wouldn’t we believe them?
To push the EcoBoost engine to 605 horsepower and 622 pound-feet of torque, the Texas tuners installed high-flow air induction and the turbo system upgrades.
An intercooler makes sure the air that goes into snails is cooler and thus denser. New piping is, of course, included as is the complete stainless steel exhaust system.
Once the parts are installed, the dyno tuning ensures the map makes the most of its available toolkit.
While most tuned cars have the Stage 1 engine, this VelociRaptor deserves the Stage 1 Off-Road Package.
This includes the LED bar you see on a front, bumper upgrades, suspension leveling and 20-inch 10-spoke wheels fitted with the 35-inch Toyo off-road tires.
