Hoonigan's 2JZ Supra-Swapped Ford F-150 Frightening Has Sprung to Life

The Hoonigan team took it for dyno testing and it makes over a 100 horses more than the stock 2JZ engine

The Hoonigan team has almost finished the work on the F-150 Frightening - a Supra 2JZ-swapped F-150 Lightning

The 2JZ engine is a a 3.0-liter, straight-six twin-turbo engine that made 276 horses and 319 pound-feet of torque. The U.S.-spec engine, however, produced 321 horses and 326 pound-feet of torque

It’s not easy to put a Supra engine into a big truck. But, Hoonigan managed to do it quite well. They made a few changes of their own to it...

For instance, the intercooler receives piping with the blower valve peeping out from the bottom

The team even equipped it with Haltech coils pack and a carbon fiber filter!

Hoonigan has swapped the stock brakes for 14-inch rotors with six-piston calipers and aluminum hubs

On the inside, they've fixed gauges thus far, but a lot of work still remains

The truck was then taken to a dyno in a rather bare bones form with even the body not built yet

After three baseline runs on the dyno that made between 350- and 390 horses, the team then turned up the timing to see what it can churn out

In the final pass, it made 500 horses, which is quite impressive for shop truck with many original components

The original SVT Lightning came with 5.4-liter V-8 supercharged mill made 380 horses and 450 pound-feet of torque. The 2JZ's power outputs are an impressive improvement over these figures

The truck is still far from over, but we might see the result in the final episode of this series that will be coming up next
