|Roush Stage 3 F-150
Jack Roush and Roush Performance Products (RPP) today announced the very first ROUSHcharged Stage 3 Ford F-150 pickup truck.
The F-150's 445 horsepower comes through the addition of an F-150 ROUSHcharger system and the 150 horsepower and 135 foot-pounds of torque it adds. The ROUSHcharger package includes an OEM-level calibration that provides the optimal blend of fuel, spark, and 6 PSI of boost.
The Stage 3 F-150 comes with a package of aerodynamic enhancements and Roush
22x9-inch forged aluminum wheels. The wheels, from the new Roush Wheel Collection, are American-made and are stronger and lighter than standard wheels. The Roush Performance Products (RPP) appearance package includes front and rear painted bumpers, a hood scoop, and a chin spoiler.
The Stage 3 F-150 package includes a Roush Performance Products exhaust system. "Our Roush Performance exhaust system adds horsepower by decreasing backpressure in the system, using mandrel bends and a straight-through muffler," says Jamie Nickel, Roush Performance Products engineer.
The tuned suspension system under the Stage 3 offers a balance between comfort and handling capability, with specially valved Roush front and rear shock absorbers, matched rear leaf springs, front coil springs, and a 25-mm solid front sway bar.

At SEMA 2005, Roush Performance Products announces the availability of a new 5.4-liter, 3-valve V-8 F150 ROUSHcharger. The ROUSHcharger is now legal in all 50 states, and meets California's CARB EO# D418-3 regulations.
Increased horsepower starts at idle with the ROUSHcharger Roots-type supercharger system for 2004-2005 Ford F-150 trucks equipped with the 5.4-liter 3-valve engine powering two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive models. The supercharger package can produce up to an additional 112 horsepower and 137 foot-pounds of torque.
"The ROUSHcharger program provides proven performance, superior drivability, and it honors our commitment to bring exceptional engineering, product differentiation, competitive pricing and greater exposure to the automotive performance market," said Ryan Bunn, Roush Performance Marketing Manager.
Pivotal to Roush's new supercharger system is the Roush Performance Products OEM level engineering calibration. The non-intercooled calibration balances large performance gains with an optimal blend of fuel, spark, and 6 PSI of boost. Roush Performance
