Its not a fair comparison until you make both engines natural asperation, or both turbo.
Got to think cost to.

A twin turbo 3.5l can get a VE of (I'm guessing) 150%. That would mean it is moving 5.25l of air at about any level.
I use ultra gauge depending on RPM load and speed...... 65mph no wind on the flat.... No boost pressure. My truck VE is 77-80........ I have seen it go as high as 85 if under a load with boost pressure.
I found this web site recently that compares the EcoBoost to the 5.0. It is a good read for anyone that hasn't made up their mind as to which motor they want in their truck.

I prefer low end torque low RPM. It just might last longer IMO.

And 12 replies later, not a single trailer! Ecoboost vs. V-8 vs. diesel seems to have a life of its own.

Back to trailers with hauling dirt with a single axle 5X8 utility trailer.

That's 1 cubic yard of dirt.

Overloaded?

Nah!
