Default What Motor Should You Buy in an 2018 -2019 F150 ?

What Motor Should You Buy in an 2018 -2019 F150 ? One question we get asked a lot. By having all of these Shop Vehicles in our fleet. We thought this DYNO Graph of each motor (minus 3.3) all stock trucks with Performance tunes on them, would be interesting. What kind of HP / TQ does each make to wheel and at what RPM? Well here it is...

How flexible are you with your tuning? I just purchased a 2018 3.5EB and and I'm not interested in trying to get every last pony out of the engine. 400HP and 450lbs tq at the rear wheels would be all I wanted. Can you tune to hit those numbers or are your tunes all or nothing?

5star is known for their reliability...

Ask them about their auto octane tune

What motor? Whichever motor you want
I really like my 3.5EB. 441/496 is ridiculously impressive for just a tune.
