Can't help but noticed all the lack of V8 comments going on.
As nice as a V8 is, we're still getting a just as or more potent powerplant here.

I hear you on that. Maybe I'm in the minority, but I welcome the Ecoboost engine for its greater potential for aftermarket tuning.

Agreed. Not to mention THIS EB 3.5 derived from the IMSA DP's is an absolute gem. You know what kills me the most though, the EB 3.5 is kicking out more power then the old engine and all people can say is I DONT WANT NO ECO TRUCK. The stupidity, It'll walk away from your old V8 before you can even find D....

Not to mention the work being done on the EB mustangs is very encouraging 9I know different motor, but the first real performance application of EB)

now all we need to worry about is DMCA ruining all the fun, have you heard they're trying to make modifications illegal?

That's years off...maybe a worry for the next-gen Raptor, but not this one

The newest Raptor is engineered already, I'm sure we will be able to tune it. Not worried.

Watch them make connected vehicle tech a must and have an automated system that scans your system for any `faults` who knows...
