2007 F150 Lightning Clone
This truck was a hot rod version of the Ford F-150 truck that first appeared in 1993 with a 240-hp V-8. Production was only until 1995. Then new version F150 was manufactured in 1999 with a supercharged 360-hp V-8 that produced 380 horsepower before it was put to rest in 2004. The FOMoCo freaks were hoping the hot rod would continue when the current generation trucks hit showrooms in 2004. It did not. The new lightning replacement, the Raptor, will be available in 2009.
If you wished FoMoco had not stopped building the supercharged Lightning in 2004, and your getting tired of little sport trucks blowing the doors off your F150. And if the price tag for the F150 RAPTOR ($40k) is a bit too steep, then I have the solution. Here is a recipe for a hot little F150 lightning clone truck. The 2007 F150 FX2 is a truck freaks dream and can be turned into an F150 Lightning clone. This F150 Lightning clone produces serious performance numbers and you can get the parts for your F150 Lightning right here at F150MANIA
F150 Lightning freaks, here's how to build a high-performance F 150 Lightning clone. For those of us who are power freaks and have to have an F150 Lightning start with any F150 that has the 300-hp 5.4-liter engine, a two-wheel-drive FX2 Sport extended cab makes a great F150 Lightning, (it works with the 4X4's also).Then add the F150 Lightning supercharger kit (the polished one is a nice touch). Install a performance exhaust system. Install a heavy duty radiator, a set of 20inch wheels. Add an F150 suspension lowering kit, a set of 4.10:1 lightning gears a limited-slip differential and finally. A big-brake system for your F150 Lightning. And the result will be a F150 Lightning clone that is as close in spirit and stamina to an F150 Lightning as you can get or until FoMoCo releases the new 2010 400HP F150 Raptor. Can we say serious F150 Lightning replacement here. All these F150 Lightning clone parts are considerably cheaper than the new F150 Lightning replacement.
This F150 Lightning clone has a claimed 450 horses while running the quarter-mile in 14.4 seconds at 94 mph, and sprints to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds. The F150 Lightning engine feels a lot like the one in the old F150 Lightning. With strong throttle response and a good dose of super charger whine. But this Lightning differs in one way. It is just a tad slower then the real lightning. There is room to tweak the lightning so stay tuned. Come visit us at F150Mania for all your Ford F150 Lightning needs and take advantage of our great customer service. Thanks, DEAN.
