I think in a similar configuration they'd be a close race at any rate. Which is exciting. If that updated 5.0 was in the 17's i'd have probably gotten it.

So, just to clarify...are ALL you guys running these sick times...2.7, 3.5, 3.5V2, or 5.0 running in 4x4Hi?

TTT for some Experienced Guidance here please

The quickest time bone stock was an 18 RCSB 5.0 2wd.

Ok so the 13.3 was a rcsb. Even still, Maurice ran like for like cab configs between 2.7 and 3.5 and the 3.5 is quicker by a good margin. And based on the ratings, this should be no surprise.
Im not going off of what people write, but what I've seen in person. My last F150 was a 5.0 and my best friend has a 5.0, and the 2.7 SURPRISINGLY pulled the highest mph out of more than a dozen F150s at the drag strip. Notice I use mph rather than actual quarter mile times because that would depend on the launch and/or driver. And a stock 5.0 will NOT run a 13.3 stock. I don't care what that guy wrote or filmed. I have a buddy who has a rcsb 5.0, tuner, exhaust, intake, drag radials for the track and has raced for years. He runs a 13.55, and it ran 14.5 stock at 95mph.

I suppose we can set the requirements however we want to get the results we'd like to see. I would just like to point out that my 2000 lightning was hundreds of pounds heavier than a 2018 rcsb 5.0 and made less power at the wheels and ran under 13.5 at 101. It's not hard to imagine that more power and less weight would result in a quicker time. I'm sorry your buddies stock rcsb 5.0 was a lot slower than my stock 2007 tundra. I can't explain that either. But again, if a stock Toyota truck, and even some rams, ran in the 13's 10 years ago, then a stock f150 had better be there today. Oh, and I won't even go into the countless stock pre 2018 5.0 f150's that have run in the 13.8 range.

Personally, I would like to see any comparisons made to use nhra certified timing equipment calibrated to ISO standards, average of 3 passes back to back, all video taped, all run at standard temperature, barometric pressure, and humidity, and the vehicle inspected by an nhra inspector and a ford engineer to verify stock, all driven by the same driver, and the fuel tested to have a max octane of 93 and max ethanol content of 10%, and a specified max energy content, and on and on until I get the results I want.

The truck he ran in was an 18 5.0, if you don't know. They make a significant amount more horsepower bone stock than the previous motor and they have the 10R80 transmission which is probably the biggest difference for the 5.0

Probably not much worse than the RCSB, because it won't hit the speed limiter.
