Is felt a Compressor As American as a large-volume V8 engine, and even in times of automotive change, from our point of view it is still a long way from being scrapped. Above all with Restomod projects, but also at OEM-Tuning vehicles, this is the form of the Forced ventilation still often used to improve performance. At the beginning of the 2000s there were also various Mercedes models that relied on a compressor, but they were gradually being replaced by turbo engines. Likewise, sporty models from Jaguar and Land Rover had and have installed the component ex works, which generates a high increase in performance, especially in the medium speed range.
Supercharger kit from SEMA
Turbo and Incidentally, compressors also harmonize well with each other, as shown by various VW models with twin charger charging. But now we come back to the compressor upgrade from Ford, which is not weak-chested anyway Coyote V8 breathed in a few horsepower and more Newton meters of maximum torque in the Ford F-150 to make the workhorse fit for all tasks.
Car fans who visited the 2021 SEMA in Las Vegas were able to get a live picture of the compressor upgrade for the Coyote V8. The Supercharger celebrated its world premiere, namely at the largest tuning fair in the USA. In addition to the compressor, the set also includes one Intercooler and all necessary hardware. One Exhaust System is not included in the price. The estimated purchase price for the kit is $ 7.500, with an additional $ 2.500 to $ 3.000 to install.
Ford customers should be able to order the kit by the end of the year, and exact prices will be announced later this year. With the Supercharger Kit, it is probably also possible to equip a Ford Mustang GT, because it also has a Coyote V8 with five liters of displacement, but there is no official statement on this yet.
700 PS and 800 Newtonmeter
The increase in performance through the compressor surpasses a simple chip tuning of course clearly. While the engine is in series production 431 PS perform, it should tighten with the help of forced ventilation 700 little horse tugging on the rear axle or on both axles. The maximum torque should be even more gigantic, because according to the manufacturer it is at 800 Newton meters lies. The supercharger kit is so far just designed for the F-150 with the Coyote V8, and therefore, according to Ford, it is not possible to install the compressor in a truck with a different engine. From our point of view, however, it would also make sense to have such a performance increase for the EcoBoost and the hybrid variants of the most popular pickup in the world, because the market share of the V8 engine is also continuously shrinking in the F-150.
Of course, that wasn't the end of it!
