    do want.
    For my type of driving a turbo would be better than a supercharger.

    Has anyone run a turbo with long term success? It seems I've read things go downhill with the engine after too long. Not bc of compression, but the ecu.

    I'd like to know this as well. I've heard Ford has had a lot of issues with their Eco boost engines losing a LOT of their poop at about the 60K mi. mark. Any truth to this?

    My buddy drove his EcoBoost F150 to 100k with regular maintenance. Said that he was hearing some strange noises on cold starts before he traded it in but that was it.

    I was referring more to our 5.7's, and people who have run turbos on them having issues few thousand miles after install.

    I guess I was trying to point out that it is possible that a turbo might put a bit too much strain on components and cause early power loss/failure. There's got to be a reason the big hitters aren't totally on board with turbos and super chargers for all the trucks. Mayhaps Ford is onto something but it's gonna be a while before we see it as common place like TC, ABS and as I recall, disc brakes. Oops, I just dated myself.

    I would think that 5psi is 5psi, wouldn't matter if it were via turbo or S/C. Fuel management is the issue. We have that with the S/C from Toyota/TRD to Magnuson . The turbos, not so much. Toyota might even milk the 5.7L until they can put together a gas/electric hybrid. Maybe their next play is to get rid of it and go with the 4.6L and hybridise that. Heck, maybe they'll wait it out till Tesla really gets up and going and team up with Elon. Part of his big plan is to eventually have trucks too. Just kinda running with an idea, no real basis other than my imagination.

    I'm not saying this is a fake, but watch the speed of the passing center stripe road reflectors and traffic durring their WOT (wide open throttle) pulls. Their relative speed doesn't seem to change very much from the beginning of their acceleration to the end.

    I'm not sure whether I believe this or not because the motor sound seems to match the tachometer behavior, but the ground speed doesn't seem to match the speedometer behavior. At first I thought he was just spinning the tires with each pull, but the dialoge indicates they are accelerating.

    However, if this video is legit this is a bragging-rights truck for sure.
