2012 Roush Performance Ford F-150

We normally associate with Roush Performance with the Ford Mustang, as we've tested several examples over the year from the race-ready 427R Trak Pak to the current 540 horsepower RS3. The Michigan tuner is now looking to expand, though, and has recently introduced a new line of performance products aimed at another segment of the Ford product line, the F-150.

The F-150's new powertrains are the main focus of Roush's product blitz, with supercharger systems available for both the 5.0-liter and 6.2-liter V8s. Roush has also developed cold air inductions kits for the entire powertrain lineup with the exception of the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. Additionally, Roush is offering a stainless steel cat-back exhaust for most of the F-150 lineup that produces a more aggressive tone than the stock system.

You can read more about the new F-150 products from Roush in the press release after the jump, and you can get a closer glimpse at the supercharger and the exhaust system in the gallery above.

The Ford F-Series has been the #1 selling vehicle in North America for several years and has always been an integral part of ROUSH®
Performance's product line up. With Ford launching four new engines for the 2011+ F-150,
ROUSH has added more horsepower and throaty tunes to enhance all four new F-150
powertrains.

Among the new engines are two new beefy V-8's. ROUSH has developed new ROUSHcharger supercharger systems for both the 6.2L and the 5.0L V-8 powertrains. Both the 6.2L and 5.0L supercharger systems will be available as a non-calibrated TUNER kit and a ROUSH calibrated kit. All systems will come complete with ROUSH's 2.3L TVS R2300 supercharger featuring Eaton's new TVS Technology. The new Twin Vortices Series features four-lobe rotors with high-flow inlet and outlet ports that greatly enhance thermal efficiency, enabling greater volumetric capacity at higher RPM's. The systems also include ROUSH's new cold air induction system, 100 mm MAF tube, twin 60mm throttle body, and high efficiency intercooler system featuring a dual-core low temp radiator, degas bottle and high capacity air-to-water intercooler. The 5.0L TUNER kit is now available for immediate delivery and the 5.0L ROUSH calibrated kit is available for delivery in early February 2012. The 6.2L TUNER kit will be available for delivery in mid January 2012 with the 6.2L ROUSH calibrated kit available for delivery in early April 2012. All kits are available for pre-order immediately by calling 800-59-ROUSH or www.roushperformance.com.

In addition to F-150 supercharger kits, ROUSH Performance has also launched cold air induction systems for all four F-150 powertrains including the 3.7L V-6, the 6.2L and 5.0L V-8's as well as the 6.2L V-8 in the Super Duty. These kits have been engineered and tested to ensure MAF signal performance (including airflow vs. voltage and signal noise) are transparent to factory settings, which is why the ROUSH kit does not require a unique calibration and offer better air flow providing increased horsepower and better fuel economy along with improved throttle response. These kits are designed and manufactured using OE materials for structural stability and durability. The clean air tubes are injection molded and designed for maximum air flow efficiency. All kits are designed for easy installation requiring no drilling or cutting. The F-150 V-8 cold air induction systems include an open element upper air box, washable high-flow air filter, new MAF tube, clean air tube and all required hardware. The V-6 systems and Super Duty system all include an open element upper air box, washable high-flow air filter, new MAF tube and all required hardware. All cold air kits are available for immediate delivery.

Rounding out the F-150 product line up is the new ROUSH dual-tip, stainless steel, high
performance cat back exhaust system. ROUSH has developed one system to work with the
6.2L-V8, the 5.0L-V8 and the 3.5L V6 Ecoboost powertrains and every cab and bed length
configuration. The ROUSH high performance cat back exhaust system has been engineered to provide increased air flow and less back pressure to help reach the trucks full potential in horsepower and torque. The system turns the normally quiet stock exhaust note into rumbling muscular tune....music to any performance enthusiast's ear, while eliminating any in-cab drone. The muffler is made from high grade 409 stainless steel and polished, as is the outlet pipe. The dual tips are made from 304 stainless steel, polished, and are then finished with a chrome flashing process. Conventional chrome plating uses layers of bonded chemicals to achieve its shiny appearance, which are susceptible to cracking and flaking especially when exposed to high temperatures (like exhaust). However, the chrome flashing used in this system is bonded micro-porously to the metal surface, and is as a result impervious to cracking from localized damage. This method of chroming is also resistant to heat color change. This exhaust system will be available for pre-orders beginning January 2012 with orders shipping out late February 2012.

The full line of ROUSH Performance F-150 products are available for order, or pre-order, via ROUSH's toll-free (800) 59-ROUSH phone number. The kits are expected to begin shipping now through early April 2012.
