The fake scoops above the exhaust look horrible. It also needs a manual transmission.

I like how everyone says "fake" scoops. The scoop on the hood, while ugly, 100% functional as it is on the Mustang SS. The scoops over the exhaust, 100% fuctional. Called air ducts to cool the brakes. The one on the tonneau, i cannot explain though.

I don't know about you guys but, I like everything about it. and the scoop on the tonneau probably has something to do with aerodynamics. Over all Bad A$$ truck.

Needs the 6.2 out of the Raptor R. 500 NA hp! woot!

Or put a blower on the normal Raptor 6.2. Stock 411hp then a blower on top should surpass it easily.

That doesn't mean its running the same pulley, same tune or anything like that.

it also doesnt say if it have the DOHC version of the 5.4 or the SOHC version of the 5.4. that is probably the factory here as well

anyway looks cool, crappy name. an F150 is never called a "Cobra" thus shouldnt be "Super Snake". Being thats is a Screw it should probably be called "Super Whale" or Super Pig"

Ford needs to bulid a proper muscle truck in a regular cab form. not saying the Raptor isnt awesome but a regular cab with the 6.2 and boost would be nice.

Same here, that much for a 150 is insane IMO.

Nevermind just realized they just released this truck yesterday. Its not a whole truck, its just a package. Basically you bring your 150 to them and then it leaves a super snake.
