My 2011 F150 runs 14.4 in the 1/4 Mile - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums

Yesterday the drag strip opened for the first time this year. I was able to make 4 passes and my best time was 14.44 @ 95.75 MPH (governor kicked in right before the traps).
My truck is a regular cab STX 2wd with the 5.0 and 3.31 standard axle. Not having a limited slip was a pain and only netted me a 2.135 seconds to the 60 foot mark.
For next weekend's track day I will have the Boss 302 intake, AFE air intake and a SCT tune all from 5 star tuning ready to go for round 2!
:rofl: I told you we shuold have raced at the cookout.... :s00ls::s00ls:

:rofl: and before you say craziness... id still go ecoboost over 5.0... not just for the small performance aspect... but the huge towing gains as well as mileage jump.


when i wasn't beating on the truck this weekend- best mpgs i got was around 12... :fu:






another side note... i do not own this truck, nor is that me in the video... i rented one this past weekend. and it was fun as shit. definitely needs a tune tho. the truck basically shuts off during the shifts.

Drove the Ecoboost yesterday. So awesome. Do want to sign papers. Didn't drive the 5.0 though. How is the low end torque on the 5.0?

We tested a regular cab short bed RWD 5.0 F150 with 3.73 gear last year that was dubbed "Son of Lightning."

And it was less than $30k with Sync and some nice options. I mean, it was useless for carrying anything compared to the other trucks we tested, but damn it was fun to drive.

Saying that, I'd still take an Ecoboost.

agreed... i dont think a high 13 is that far out with intake/tune and a good rear end (ie not the non-locking one that dude ran a 2.1 60 ft with)

This Ecoboost thing is mindfucking me. One day I say I'm good with what I've got and then the next day I say I'm gonna buy it.
