Sometimes I wish I could swap engines for a day or two but after reading so many posts about Eco-Boost problems I'm happy with what I got. I have no problem getting my 5.0 with the 3.73's rolling down the road and I sound great doing it!
I don't know the figure but the EB problems are probably a small percentage of the many 3.5's blasting around out here. I wouldn't be surprised if it was:
No issues: 99%
Just a wild guess. But I bet pretty close considering the success of the EB in sales. Not theres anything wrong with the 5.0 or anyone's choice in the matter of engine selection.........I would just be real curious to know the total numbers of EB issues as a percentage of EB's sold that's all. I'm glad your happy with what you got. It can be so disappointing to get ANY new truck that has an issue.
