PaxPower Beats Ford To The V8-Powered Raptor

Tuning / Comments

Up to 770 hp is on offer.

If you're a truck fan and you haven't heard of PaxPower, you've either been living under a rock or have absolutely no interest in aftermarket modifications. Regardless, the tuner has forged a pretty good name for itself, claiming that it will "build the trucks that the OEMs won't." With Ford revealing the all-new F-150 Raptor sans V8 power, PaxPower again had the opportunity to give the people what they want. Following on from its work on the Ranger Raptor, PP is now offering third-generation Raptor conversions with Ford's famous 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine.

The conversions will be based on your choice of crew-cab 4WD 2021 F-150s with the V8. Once you've chosen your truck, PP modifies the body to look like that of a Raptor using OEM panels and parts - fenders, hood, grilles, flares, and even accent lighting. Even the bed will be from a Raptor, while the chassis will feature Raptor skid plates and bumpers. Of course, to be a true Raptor, the conversion needs work on the suspension.

PaxPower will initially build these vehicles with suspension parts from the last-generation Raptor, so you'll be stuck with leaf springs instead of coils, but there's plenty to make up for this.

You'll get Raptor-spec upper and lower control arms, front axle shafts, steering links, brake lines, sway bars, leaf springs, hardware, and Fox shocks. When the new Raptor arrives, PaxPower will examine the updated suspension and live valve shocks "to determine if they are a vast improvement" and to see how they could be retrofitted. Furthermore, PaxPower will make sure you aren't embarrassed by a Ram TRX by offering a supercharger upgrade too, resulting in 770 horsepower and 675 lb-ft of torque. All the necessary hardware will ensure that this is a reliable upgrade, but what does all this cost? PaxPower estimates that the conversion without the supercharger will cost around $30,000, while the supercharger will add another $14,500 to the cost.
