During the NMRA season opener in Bradenton, Florida, the event announcers were blown away as VMP Performance’s Brad Marsh piloted the company’s new 2016 F-150 to low 12-second e.t.’s and took out several Mustangs on the drag strip. The truck was a complete sleeper, as it looked stock save for some VMP graphics. However, under the hood the truck isn’t quite stock.
Lurking under the hood is a Roush TVS supercharger dialed in for even more performance with a custom calibration from VMP main man Justin Starkey. In advance of the race we made the trip over to the company’s headquarters to document the installation of the supercharger system right after VMP’s Rick Kaknes drove the new truck back from Michigan.
“We’re into all things 5.0-liter, with so many fast Mustangs rolling around, I figured it was time to see what a 5.0 truck could do,” Justin explained.
