    That is a body kit and some shocks on a V8 F150, not a V8 Raptor.

    It would cost about $25,000 to turn your stock F-150 into a Raptor.

    Ford is developing a V8, and it is supposed to be introduced in this coming year. But it is really designed for their motor home chassis and the super duty trucks. To say it will never get into a Raptor would be a stretch, but not for a while if ever, The rumor is that the gas mileage sucks, which is why it will be in the HD trucks, as the fuel mileage does not apply to them. My 2 cents.

    This ^^^^ I have the current 6.8L V-10 with 362hp/457tq and it indeed needs "more".

    With tariffs, price increase, and dealer markup, that could easily be $20k more than the current v6 raptor.

    No thanks.

    Of course Ford is coming out with a monster 7.0L V-8 motor in the Ford Raptor. It's coming next year. Wait for it. And if it's not next year it'll for sure be the year after. Wait for it. Or maybe the year after that once the F-150 has hybrid power everyone will buy a 7.0L Raptor. Wait for it!

    My wait was over in July 2012 and I've never looked forward.
