Mil-Spec atelier unveils “monstrous” version of the Ford F-150 pickup truck

Renowned tuning studio Mil-Spec has unveiled its version of the full-size Ford F-150 pickup, which it calls an excellent alternative to the original Ford F-150 Raptor. The car received many updates, in particular the 700-horsepower supercharged engine.

Usually, when it comes to Mil-Spec tuning projects, it’s almost 100% certain that we are talking about heavily modified Hummer SUVs. But now the company has decided to expand its scope of activities by presenting a new tuning project based on the full-size Ford F-150 truck. According to representatives of the studio, in their version of the popular car, all the flaws that are (according to Mil-Spec) in the original Raptor from Ford itself have been eliminated.

Mil-Spec took the 2020 F-150 pickup truck for the project, which was powered by a 5.0-liter V8.

Although not mentioned in this video, we know that the Coyote is now 500 horsepower. In addition to increasing the power of the standard engine, the tuner also equipped the car with a more efficient exhaust, thanks to which the pickup received a pleasant tone.

This video also shows the company building its first supercharged F-150 with a V8 engine. Forced induction increases power to about 700 hp.

Mil-Spec modifications go far beyond simply increasing power. The company also redesigned the suspension, adding redesigned A-arms and 3-inch Fox bypass shocks. The idea behind this setup is that the truck can handle off-road jumps.

The massive fender flares make this pickup seven inches wider than the stock Raptor. They also make room for 37-inch tires. The body has received a new front bumper with a small “brush”, and in the center of the false radiator grill is a large metal Mil-Spec emblem.

Not so long ago, we wrote that the Mil-Spec Hummer H1 is an old diesel Hummer. Mil-Spec Automotive has unveiled a classic version of the Hummer H1 SUV. Under the hood of this monster is a 6.6-liter Duramax diesel engine.
