Default ecoboost misfire

i bought my ecoboost 3 days ago and i was driving up a mile long 3% grade hill so i decided to romp on it for the first time. the truck misfired for an 1/8 mile bad and then cleared out. this ecoboost doesnt drive like the eco the dealer gave me to drive for 3 days prior to my purchase. the throttle response is also really poor. i have a scheduled appointment in 3 days for some paint issues and i am going to have them check out the misfire. i am sure they will tell me they found nothin wrong. i traded my 2011 fx4 cause it has issues and i hope this truck will not be the same!!

Make sure to add your info in the sticky thread started by bucketman, this info will be useful if we get out of warranty and **** hits the fan with these trucks.

The update doesnt work I wish I would have saved my time. Ford has no clue here it sounds like, just remember to add all info to the sticky thread.

Could this be the condensation in the intercooler issue I've read about? If it was a misfire I think the CEL would be flashing.

That update is already installed on all ecoboost trucks made after 2/7/12 so yours already has it. You could see if they could flash it again, but I doubt it would do any good if the dealership were to agree to do it.
