Ford F-150 SVT Raptor 6.2-liter V-8 Power Ratings Announced

Raptor 6.2-liter V-8

If the 320-horsepower, 5.4-liter V-8 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor isn't enough to get your Baja mojo running, Ford has announced the official power ratings for the upcoming 6.2-liter V-8 version: 411 hp and 434 lbs.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful half-ton pickup.

The two-valve single-overhead cam (SOHC) large displacement 6.2-liter V-8 features two spark plugs per cylinder, a cast-iron engine block and aluminum cylinder heads. It also features a cast-iron crankshaft, forged steel connecting rods and cast-aluminum pistons.

The new 6.2-liter V-8, formerly known as the Boss engine -- and the Hurricane before that -- will find its way under the hood of the 2011 Ford F-Series Super Duty F-250 and F-350 pickups, and is likely to also find its way into other F-150 models beyond the Raptor's off-road niche.

6.2-liter equipped Raptors can be ordered starting December 1, with a starting MSRP of $41,995 - $3,000 more than the 5.4-liter Raptor's starting price - and the first trucks should be jumping whoops in the hands of consumers by February 2010.

Have to replace engine in my '06 f150 HD. Would like to upgrade.
Will 6.2 bolt up with the mounts and transmission?
If not, what would have to be done.
Also considering going old school. Maybe replacing
with 400 or 427. What would that mean in terms of drive
train, etc....?

TRYING TO FIND OUT IF ANYONE HAS A PROBLEM WITH THE
6.2 ENGINE FOR 2014. MINE SEEMS SLUGGISH.

I MAY INSTALL A SUPER CHARGER.

ANY THOUGHTS?
