Want a Ford F-150 to Challenge Ram’s 1500 TRX? Try This 675-HP Mil-Spec
Mil-Spec Automotive, a company known for its tactically-inspired Hummer H1 SUV models, entered the truck market earlier this year with its naturally aspirated 5.0-liter Ford F-150 V-8 of 500 horses. The Special Edition was highlighted by an aggressive suspension and menacing, tactically-inspired design that helped set it apart from the (literally) millions of other F-150s on the road. However, for those who remain disappointed with the prospects of a naturally aspirated V-8 under the hood of Mil-Spec’s F-150, the Michigan-based company has upped the stakes by expanding its “supertruck” lineup to include a supercharged 675. – HP version.
Mil-Spec calls its supercharged Blue Oval the Intrepid F-150 because it includes the company’s Intrepid Performance Pack. In addition to the supercharger, this high performance warranty package includes upgraded fuel rails, 47 lb / hour fuel injectors, an air-to-liquid intercooler in the lower intake manifold, a new throttle body, a new intake and cat-back exhaust system. Combined with a 93-octane melody, Mil-Spec brings in some pretty impressive power figures: 675 horsepower and 620 lb-ft of torque. That’s one more step towards the insane power figures of the Ram 1500 TRX.
In its quest to create an “alpha pre-racer,” Mil-Spec has metaphorically trashed the factory suspension in favor of the company’s Baja Performance suspension package, which includes things like adjustable Fox Racing 3.0 shocks. , rear shock mounts moved, custom control arms and different half-shafts. Mil-Spec reports that the suspension is able to travel up to 12 inches of travel, even less than that of the Ford Raptor or Ram TRX, but more than that of your regular F-Series.
The rounded fenders and sideboards adapt to the Intrepid F-150’s ultra-wide stance. LED flashes, Addictive Desert Designs front and rear bumpers, and an optional low-profile roof rack and spare tire rack are all the rage for off-road vehicles and have been taken in. rightly counted by Mil-Spec. Finally, the sleek Mil-Spec exterior and interior badge designates the pre-runner like no regular bulldozer build.
Mil-Spec Automotive’s supercharged F-150 combines desert prowess with street truck power, resulting in a complete package fit for the ‘get-in-and-go’ type, with plenty of room for customization .
