7-Second TT Ford-F150 Makes 1900HP

February 26th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to the Haltech Import vs. Domestic World Cup Finals from Maryland. This is where some of the baddest street and strip machines come to lay it all on the line for cash, prizes, and bragging rights.

The focus vehicle of this clip is a ground-pounding 2004 Ford F-150 Lightning Flareside pickup truck with a pair of Bullseye 88-millimeter turbochargers cramming air into a 400 cubic-inch Bennett Racing engine. It has a 10.5 racing chassis (from the firewall back) and runs consistent low 7-second elapsed times in the 190 mph range. The controller is a Haltech unit and it is riding on Weld wheels and Mickey Thompson rubber.

Round One pits the F-150 against a restomod GTO that is a real eye-catcher. The pickup gets out of the hole quick and narrowly (7.16/7.22) defeats the Goat to move on to the next round.

Round Two has the Ford lined up in the left lane against a tiny Toyota Starlet. This subcompact is short but it ain’t small with a set of fat slicks packed under the rear. Nevertheless, the pickup takes a narrow victory (7,12/7.45) to move to the next round.

The final round involves the Lightning (right lane) against the Mech-Tech RX7, which looks like a full-blown pro mod and is being billed as the fastest RX7 on the planet.

The question is: Will it be fast enough to beat this fast Ford F-150? Have a look for yourself.
