• 2013 Ford Raptor Phase 2 by Roush Performance

The Ford Raptor is a truck that doesn’t need to do a lot to catch attention. Its mere presence alone usually does the trick.

Every so often, however, somebody decides that Raptor deserves a boost, and when this “somebody” happens to be Roush Performance, you know you’re bound to get something special. This latest program isn’t all to Roush’s credit, as Cooper Tire and Mickey Thompson, two companies that know a thing or two about fitting vehicles the size of the Raptor with a set of polished wheels and tires, had hands in it too.

For all the impressive characteristics of the Raptor, the one that really brought this program to a new level was Roush Performance’s new Phase 2 R2300 calibration supercharger kit. This upgrade gave the Raptor a staggering output of 590 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. The horsepower output, in particular, is a sharp spike from the standard model’s 411 horsepower and Roush’s Phase 1 program, which netted 525 horsepower. The supercharger kit also includes a new 7 5mm supercharger pulley and Roush’s own PCM calibration. The kit was created through hours upon hours of research and testing that included it undergoing extreme environmental temperatures from -20 degrees F up to and through 120 degrees F. Roush went above and beyond by performing these tests at an altitude of 14,000 feet above sea level to ensure both quality and performance.

The price for the program has been set at $599 and comes with a 3-year or 36,000-mile warranty on the Roush parts only. Unfortunately, the program isn’t for sale or can’t be installed in California in large part because it’s not approved by the California Air Resources Board.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
