Through the magic of forced induction, power grows from the 6.2-liter V8 Raptor's stock 411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque to a slightly-goofy 602 hp and 622 lb-ft of twist in the V-Rap 600. Not enough for you? Hennessey either, which is why he's also selling the VelociRaptor 800. Get all the liquids out of your mouth now, as the engine stonks it up to the Texas-sized tune of 810 hp and 745 lb-ft of torque. Can we borrow an exclamation point?
i have one in my driveway already =) traded in my 2005 fx4. i did get a chance to test drive a 5.4 and the 6.2 before i made my purchase. i didnt get a chance to really open both up because the test drives were over city roads. the 5.4 raptor felt a bit stronger but much smother than the 5.4 out of my fx4. only problem was that the truck would get in to 6th gear quickly so when you gave in some gas after it was cruising, it would "hunt" for a lower gear to accelerate. i do not know if when u set it on off road mode the tranny would shift "better" in terms of performance. the 6.2 has much more acceleration potential. im using much less throttle to get the truck going. it doesnt fell as sluggish as the 5.4. it feel almost car like when it accelerate. the problem is, i jump in to one of my mustangs and then in to the truck and the acceleration feels slow. mpg so far with 450mile on the odo is about 14mpg city/hw
it should. thats life, bro. you should drive my truck and feel what slow is like.
