Great video. I dumped my previous truck with the EB because I didn't have the patience to experiment with the engine any longer.

Not sure if this is true, but I heard flooring the truck every so offer helps clear out some carbon and is good for the turbos. A ford tech told me this before. If true, would this help with the carbon buildup issue?

So from what I gathered from the video, the problem is doing an "induction" cleaning right?

also something about needing to replace cylinder heads instead of the induction cleaning which would damage the turbo's

Ford has sold 550,000 EB F150s as of this week. They've sold over a million EB Flexes and Explorers. When I start seeing them dead on the side of the road I'll panic. Until then, not so much.

Ok, so I guess people just don't know nowadays the things we all new long ago. Induction buildup is NOT a new thing. So many people today act like it is this horrific new thing when it is not. All vehicles has this problem back in the day, a number of vehicles today have this problem still, especially high performance vehicles. We used to talk about blowing the carbon out of an engine. This is what we did. If you have a problem with misfires due to this problem, find a deserted back road and do a few full throttle runs to the fastest safe speed Possible. This will blow out any carbon deposits.

Cleary, if you KNEW what you think you've known all along, you'd know that the engines of the past (non DI) don't suffer the same fate as a DI engine does.

I do not agree that seamfoam hurts the turbos though.
