History of the Ford F-150
Ford Motor Company is no stranger when it comes to performance trucks. Remember the 454ss and first Lightning in the 90s? Remember how the next generation of the Lightning got even better when they added a supercharger for the 99-04 model years? Take those memories, turn the knob to 11, and you’ll have the Raptor!
The Ford F-150 Raptor is the latest performance truck from Ford. The first generation sported a 6.2L naturally aspirated v8. Much like the second generation lightning, the second generation Raptor benefits from added boost. This boost comes by way of twin turbochargers strapped to a 3.5l v6 EcoBoost. Luckily for us, the EcoBoost powerplant isn’t limited to the Raptor. In fact, more than two-thirds of the F-150s sold are equipped with a variant of the twin-turbo EcoBoost v6.
Needless to say, with that many trucks on the market able to be the benefactor of boost, we’re all very excited!
Why Choose COBB for Your F-150
The 2017+ second-generation Ford F-150 Raptor and its twin-turbo EcoBoost v6 marked the origins of COBB Tuning and the F-150 Platfrom. From there, support has extended into the 2019+ F-150 Limited which shares the same powerplant, and now the 2017+ 3.5L F-150. All three are very capable platforms in a stock configuration, but after some COBB magic, the EcoBoost v-6 becomes a whole new beast! From here, the sky is the limit and we expect to offer tuning and other performance upgrades to additional F-150s down the road.

Ford F-150 Stage Power Packages
Stage Power Packages
Our engineers rigorously test Hard Parts to find the right order and combination for the best incremental power gains. Maps are created and tested to tune the ECU so that it supports and takes advantage of each part. With these results, COBB is able to create the Upgrade Path of Staged Packages that have all the necessary parts to upgrade your EcoBoost F-150 or F-150 Raptor. Each Stage Package incorporates the parts below. You can start with Stage 1 or immediately get everything and go straight to Stage 2! Learn more about The COBB Way.
Ford F-150 Accessport

Simply plug this device into your truck’s OBD port and you have the capability to reflash the ECU or TCM (transmission control module) to enjoy power gains, custom features, and other improvements immediately! All of the off the shelf maps are included at no additional cost and free updates are simplified with Accessport Manager. It’s the last engine management solution you’ll ever need!
Ford F-150 Air Induction
The COBB Intake for the Ford F-150 checks every box that enthusiasts expect from a high-quality bolt on upgrade. The factory piping from the air-box is replaced with dual 3″ mandrel bent aluminum tubing to maximize airflow while custom silicone couplers ensure perfect OEM-like fitment.
The injection molded – fiber reinforced airbox lid incorporates a closed-cell foam gasket to seal the filter from mud, dirt, and debris. Powder coated tubing, composite material, and a COBB nameplate transform the engine bay to look as sharp as the iconic F-150 exterior.
Also, we combined the improved airbox design with a high flow, dual inlet, tapered-oval filter. With 165% more surface area over stock, the intake produces more air-flow and a more audible turbo sound when building boost at low RPM.
Ford F-150 Cooling
Front Mount Intercooler
The COBB Front Mount Intercooler (FMIC) for your EcoBoost F-150 or F-150 Raptor is the easiest way to drastically improve power when coupled with tuning from the V3 Accessport. The much larger 24″ wide x 14″ tall x 3.5″ thick core produces a significant volume increase compared to stock, resulting in minimal pressure drop despite the significant increase in size. Straight forward installation requires minor trimming on the back side of the grille and maintains the factory Adaptive Cruise Control bracket when using the stock bumper.
Combined with an Accessport, upgrading the stock intercooler is a no brainer as the best bang for your buck modification on a F-150 EcoBoost or Raptor. Efficiency is the name of the game and this intercooler will get the most out of your stock turbos and still has plenty left over for future upgrades to go along with it. Check out this link to see the data on how much an improvement the COBB intercooler is over the stock unit.
Ford F-150 Cat-Back Exhaust
The COBB Cat-Back Exhaust for the EcoBoost F-150 is constructed of quality 304 stainless steel tubing. Mandrel bends ensure maximum flow throughout the entire system. An integrated flex section provides a small amount of compliance during installation and reduces stress on components once installed. The triple-chambered muffler with 3″ inlet/outlets keeps the exhaust note crisp and prevents unwanted drone. The three sections are joined together using cast 3″ 2-bolt flanges and multi-layer steel gaskets for a leak-free assembly. Connecting to the factory downpipe assembly is a breeze with an OEM style 2-bolt flange.
