Underhood Air Compressor for the Ford Power Stroke

Following months of design, VMAC announced recently the release of the VR140 UNDERHOOD Air Compressor for the 2008 Ford Power Stroke V8 Diesel F250-F550 truck.

The development represents a small milestone for the Canadian manufacturer, who recently released a 70 CFM UNDERHOOD Air Compressor System for the Power Stroke, despite industry scepticism.

"FEAD (Front End Auxiliary Drive) manufacturers got their first look at the 2008 Power Stroke at a measuring session in Detroit last year, and most were convinced no belt-driven air compressor was fitting that truck." said Tod Gilbert, lead engineer for VMAC UNDERHOOD division. "Engine components were cramped, the engine bay tight, and unlike the 6.0L, this truck left little room for added components."

The VR70 Air Compressor System, certified at delivering up to 70 CFM and 12 bar of air output, paled in size to the VR140, which provides over double the air power.

Most air compressors at that output weigh in excess of 900 kg and need to be towed by trailer. The VMAC VR140 delivers a tow-behind's muscle, but with dimensions comparable to a toaster. The VMAC VR140 for the 2008 Power Stroke weighs in at approximately 90 kg.
