Hennessey VelociRaptor 500 gives Ford F-150 SVT Raptor 501-hp

Hennessey Performance Engineering has announced that it is working on developing power upgrades for the new 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor pickup with the 5.4L being the main focus. The tuner says that high-performance engine upgrades will increase output anywhere from between 450-hp to 1,000-hp.

In the mean time, Hennessey has its VelociRaptor 500 available for order.  Upgrades include a new Supercharger System for the 5.4L V8 along with custom fuel rails, upgraded fuel-injectors, stainless steel headers, a stainless steel exhaust system and engine management software calibration. All the modifications help the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor return 501-hp with a maximum torque of 520 lb-ft. That allows for a 0-60 mph run in 5.6 seconds with and a quarter mile run in 14.1 seconds at 97 mph.

Hennessey is also working on upgrades for the Raptor with the 6.2L Coyote engine.

Yes, we are in love.
