I haven't heard of any issues.

I could do this new truck thing but my only issue is I'd have to sell Ranger racetruck. Not sure if I want too part with that since its so damn fun and I have fuel injection coming for it this week. I'd miss it too much. A lot of work and money in it to let it go so soon.

After driving an ecoboost, I have to say, it's awesome, but too quiet and smooth for me, I may be the here but, I like to hear my engine doing work. I'd get a 5.0

Still, plenty of room to work with at that price as far as loading it up goes... My truck had a window sticker approaching $39,000.... for that money I could've gotten a baddass FX4 5.0 OR ECB

Mikey with the yellow GTO at Luke's last week has had the F150 w/the 5.0 in it. He loves it. Bohnman, another GTO guy, had the same truck but with the Ecoboost. He saids the Ecoboost is faster. I'd love the short bed extended cab Ecoboost.

And then there's this, tuned ecoboost vs smaller lighter ecoboost:

Agreed on the turbo spool > *

I miss the shit out of my Audi and that is one of the main reasons...



I can picture myself in an F150 FX4 with a tuned ecoboost... That is, until I can afford a Raptor

Hopefully this guy is a member at TCG!
