Leave it to us here at Stage 3 Motorsports to get the most out of the 5.0L or 6.2L V8 under the hood of your 2011 to 2014 F150 with our massive assortment of powerful F150 V8 performance parts and accessories. We have just about anything you could possibly want for your 5.0L Coyote V8 or 6.2L Boss V8 engine, as well as the rest of your aggressive F150 build. The V8 F150s have a ton of potential, and a few basic bolt-ons like 5.0L Cold Air Intakes and 6.2L Cold Air Intakes and 5.0L custom tuning or 6.2L custom tuning can make good power, while exhaust modifications like 5.0L Cat-Back Kits and 6.2L Cat-Back Kits allow for these big V8s to produce a tremendous and aggressive roar that will definitely turn some heads both on and off the road. For truly massive power, you'll need to invest in an F150 5.0L Supercharger Kit or F150 6.2L Supercharger Kit.
Adding a Cold Air Intake is most definitely one of the first modifications we recommend on the list of important performance upgrades that can increase the horsepower and torque as well as improve fuel economy of your F150. The stock air box and intake that comes from the factory is not only inefficient and restrictive on both the 5.0L and 6.2L engines, but it can be costly over time, as the disposable paper filter needs to be replaced frequently and doesn't do a great job of filtering out harmful contaminants as well as dust and dirt from your engine. It's a known fact that your engine performs at its best when its getting a heavy dose of cool charge air to the intake. Hot air does just the opposite. By replacing your factory stock intake system with one of our 5.0L Cold Air Intakes or 6.2L Cold Air Intakes, you can get excellent amounts of power. We equipped our 2012 F150 5.0L FX4 with one of our favorite systems: The F150 5.0L AFE Stage 2 Cold Air Intake System. This complete intake system flows up to 20% more efficiently than the 5.0L stock intake system and can add up to 9 horsepower and 10 lb-ft of torque while improving throttle response and fuel mileage without the need for any tuning. Not only does it give you a noticeable increase in your overall performance, but it also gives your engine compartment an awesome custom look as well.
The easiest way is with a cat-back exhaust kit. We here at Stage 3 have both 5.0L F150 cat-backs and 6.2L F150 cat-backs that add a huge sound to your truck's exhaust note. In addition to the aggressive sound you'll get, there are also some nice gains to be had in horsepower and torque as well as improved fuel economy. The factory stock system comes with pipes that are small in diameter and a muffler that is huge and bulky and restricts air flow. From dual or single exiting cat-back exhaust systems to your choice of powder-coated black tips or polished stainless steel tips, our selection of high-performance exhaust systems are proven to not only improve the sound and performance category, but reduce engine robbing EGTs as well. The 5.0L Solo Performance MACH-X Dual Exhaust System - 157" Wheel Base is one of our best selling Dual Exhaust kits right now for the 5.0L V8s trucks:
With a lift kit or leveling kit, of course. Our 2011 to 2013 F150 lift kits come in all shapes and sizes and allow you to tailor your truck for a specific application. For your daily driver that needs a more aggressive look, we recommend Daystar's excellent 2" front leveling kit that allows you to throw on 33" tires while giving your truck a nice, even stance. If you're turning your F150 into a pure off-roading machine, then a more aggressive 6" lift from ProComp or Zone Off-Road may be your better option. Take a look at what a lift and an aggressive combination of custom wheels and off-road tires did for some of our project trucks:
For amazing, tire-shredding horsepower and torque, you'll need one of our F150 supercharger kits. These bad boys are the answer to all of your power needs. Our supercharger kits for both the 5.0L and 6.2L V8s can instantly add upwards of 100 horsepower with many of our kits approaching or breaching the 600 horsepower mark. Our Roush Phase 1 supercharger kits for both the 5.0L Coyote and 6.2L Boss are our most popular systems, while Whipple's 2.9L kit is the most powerful.
