Reason I am not a high compression caliber fan.
Diesel guys would disagree
True....and I nearly opted for a F240 diesel, but i didn't have enough knowledge regarding diesels to pull the trigger comfortably.
when i was in the process of purchasing a new f150 two years ago, i purposefully sought out the 5 liter v8. i test drove two models and yes the ecoboost had a bit more “get up and go.” however i think with either engine, putting the truck in “sport” mode to delay up shifts will make more difference in acceleration up to 60mph than the negligible horse power difference.
i don’t know what the verdict is on long term durability of the ecoboost but i didn’t feel like paying 50k to be ford’s guinea pig.
Any increase in fuel economy and savings will immediately be wiped out when you have to replace those turbos. I still drive Ford's but only the naturally aspirated engine models.
Only time will tell. I will maintain it at the recommended intervals. However, this is the only available engine option for a 2015-2018 Expedition EL 4WD.
So I guess posting that I have had no motor issues jinxed me both turbos blew at 203kand change ford want 4400 to fix it
Very rarely does a turbo outlast its host.
Back in the day I had a Plymouth Laser RS AWD turbo. Got an aftermarket kit called a turbo timer that would let the engine idle for a set amount of time after you shut it off and removed the key. The concept was that it kept oil supplied to the turbo bearings in an effort to prevent coking.
People still build some crazy fast cars out of those AWD Laser/TSI's. I see them all the time on the 1320 Videos YouTube channel street racing.
