Default SEMA 2010: The Custom Shop's Ford F-150 FX2 EcoBoost V-6

<p></p>
<p>By Mike Levine @ Pickuptrucks.com</p>
<p>Fast cars and trucks have always been popular at SEMA, but there's never been a hot rod pickup quite like this. The Custom Shop got its hands on one of the first of Ford's all-new EcoBoost twin-turbo direct-injection F-150s and turned it into a fuel-efficient go-fast hauler.</p>
<p>The FX2 F-150 features shaved door handles, a lightweight ARE tonneau cover, lightweight COR rims wearing Continental low-rolling-resistance tires, a Corsa free-flow cat-back exhaust system, a larger cold air intake system and Amsoil synthetic motor oil for the EcoBoost engine, which makes 365 horsepower and 420 pounds-feet of torque.</p>
<p></p>
<p>Solar panels are mounted in the tonneau cover to help charge the F-150?s accessories, and carbon fiber and aluminum panels under the body help improve airflow beneath the truck. Ride height has been lowered using a Firestone air ride load-leveling system to further reduce aerodynamic drag.</p>
<p>Topping it off is a custom Pearl Black, white, silver and copper paint job with a dual pinstripe border applied to the F-150?s skin using DuPont?s low-volatile organic compound base and clear-coat paint for reduced emissions. Also note the offset front license plate so that airflow to the turbo intercooler isn't blocked.</p>
<p>Inside, the paint job has been matched with a similarly colored leather interior by Katzkin seat covers, a custom Sony sound system and LCD screens throughout the cabin.</p>
