Tuned and Lifted Ford F150 Dyno

Justin from American Trucks tells us how fast the F150 can go with the Coyote V8. This video features the 5.0 liter F150 with the V8 engine. 

They rate three of the most frequently used essential modifications by vehicle owners. These include an entrance, a melody, and a frame of feline smoke. From then on, Dy no uses the smoke system to analyze the numbers. And then they go to the nearby track to try it out for real.

Air intake

The main change is the placement of the JLT Performance cold air intake designed for the 5.0 liter F150 from 2015 onwards. Justin chose this intake in light of JLT's notoriety for improving their strength. He also mentioned the lack of adjustment required, which is normal, and the appearance with its 4.5-inch open channel. It features a 4-inch plastic intake tube, looks decent, and takes about 15 minutes to install.


From then on, Justin took care of the tuning using an ID Motorsports Tune. Justin has positive encounters with tunes from this brand, so the referenced F150 got a 93 octane tune.

Smoke system

The trim is balanced by a unique Rough exhaust system - side exit installation, also designed for the F150 5.0 liter from the model year 2015. Justin decided half this specific feline exhaust system for its beautiful, loud clamor. He also decided him because of his fame. Depending on your wheelbase, you may need to do a bit of trimming to fit it in.

Dyno Racing

Dyno shots were done on the fifth platform, as platforms 6 and 7 have speed limiters. The standard variant of the truck delivered 314 units and 322 lb-ft of torque on 93 octanes. After all the tweaks, including the ID Motorsports tune-up, it made 355 pulls and 354 pound-feet of torque, with an octane rating of 93. That translates into a peak addition of 41 horsepower and 32 foot-pounds of torque. The largest increases appear below the curve. Those increases are a remarkable 43 force and 56 foot-pounds of torque.

On the track

Then it was time to hit the track to test the 2018 F150 with all versions. There is also another American Trucks version on the track, with similar changes to the Chevy Silverado. Since there is no gauge number for the production vehicle, there are no records explicitly trying to break it. 

  • Justin isn't expecting eye-popping numbers, as this is a huge, substantial truck with a Super Crew cab.
  • Justin starts by checking the rear tires and goes up to four. 
  • The time is 13.838 seconds, and the speed is 99.55 miles per hour. 
  • He wasn't as tall as four, which wasn't surprising. 
  • Justin was pleased with the test results. 
  • He imagined 13 highs.
  • Justin attempts to pull more RPMs out of the gap in the race that follows. 

The time was 13.906 seconds and the speed was 99.47 miles per hour. It stood around four feet tall and was in sports mode. Despite reservations about how the tires would handle it, Justin decided to place the truck on two wheels for the last race to test if it could rack up the mph. It claimed the fastest speed with the parameters was 13.967 seconds and 100.34 miles per hour.
