Blown Tundra Stomps a Tuned EcoBoost F-150

By -

Ford grabs the early lead, but the Tundra ends up running almost a second quicker in the quarter mile.

The video above comes to us from the YouTube channel of Viktor G and it features a wicked 2010 Toyota Tundra battling a newer Ford F-150 with one of the much-lauded EcoBoost engines. In stock form, the lightly-modified twin turbo V6 in the Ford might match up well to a stock 5.7-liter Toyota V8, but the Tundra is smaller, lighter and packs far more power.

As a result, the Tundra hands out a beating to the new F-150 in a race where the Ford gets the better start.

The Competitors

The racing footage above features a 2010 Toyota Tundra with the regular cab, four-wheel-drive and the 5.7-liter V8 taking on a late model Ford F-150 with the largest cab, four-wheel-drive and the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6.

Tundra Versus EcoBoost F-150 Staging

The F-150 has been fitted with a methanol injection system and tuned with the boost turned up to 22 pounds.

The Tundra’s 5.7-liter V8 has a TRD supercharger, an ASP crank pulley, a nitrous oxide system with 100-horsepower nozzles, JBA long-tube headers, a Killer Chiller with a larger coolant tank, a beefed-up fuel system and a few supporting mods that come together to yield 569 rear wheel horsepower. This truck is also lowered and equipped with an all-wheel-drive conversion package that helps make the most of the big power.

The Battle

After both trucks skip the burnout box and pull to the starting line, the green lights drop and the Ford jumps out to a surprising early lead. We expected for the smaller, lighter and stronger Toyota to get out better, but for the first 60 feet or so, the F-150 holds the lead.

That doesn’t last long, as by the 330-foot mark, the Tundra has taken the lead and begun to pull away. Even with the sluggish start, the Toyota gets to the finish line first, running a 12.36 at 112.28 miles per hour while the Ford runs a 13.28 at 100.94 miles per hour.
