Hooniverse Asks: What dealer-available aftermarket company does the best work?

That truck above? It’s the 2018 Roush F-150 SC. You can walk into a Ford dealership, hand over some $70,000+, and leave with a Mad Max-ian pickup truck. This one starts as a standard rig equipped with a 5.0-liter V8 before Roush adds its Phase 1 supercharger, reworks the engine tuning, and throws a few extra goodies at the truck both inside and out. The finished product makes 650 horsepower, 610 pound-feet of torque, and delicious noise. And there’s still some of your warranty left intact when the tire smoke clears.

This has me wondering about the many other aftermarket outfits embedded in dealerships. Roush is one of the best, certainly. The quality of their parts and long-standing history of working on Fords is clear. But there are others, and I want to hear about them.

What dealer-available aftermarket company does the best work?

Back to Roush for a moment, I had the chance to drive two vehicles from the Michigan-based tuning shop. One is a 710-hp Mustang and the other is this wild truck. You can learn more about both later on today. There’s a video coming shortly, which talks about each vehicle.

For now though, share your preferred aftermarket company that keeps your warranty intact and the fun quotient rising…

  1. Mountune is another solid one. Most of their stage 1 tunes are still covered under factory warranty if installed by a Ford Performance certified store.

  2. And the best part about Roush stuff is that you can get just the parts you want. We sold a Mustang a few weeks ago that had a Stage 3 supercharger kit, wider wheels and tires, and nothing else. As sleeper as a Mustang can get.

  3. For much of the 1980s Callaway was on the GM option sheet for their twin turbo Corvette. They only got pushed to the side when GM decided to do the ZR-1.
