5star, excellent job on these cals!
The numbers for the 2.7 don't look right either. Losing only 25 pounds of torque through the drive line seems a little off.

I prefer an engine in my truck over a motor.

That always bugs me too. If I wanted motor I would get a Telsa.

Nice graph FiveStar! Could you attach a PDF of the same run? My old eyes have a hard time seeing the lines on the graph even when I enlarge it?

Also are you guys working on a 18 Up Whipple Tune?

Either the 2.7EB makes way more power then Ford is saying or there is something wrong with those numbers. 391ish ft lbs at the rear wheels when Ford rates it at 400 at the crank.

The 2015-2017 2.7 didnít dyno that high, maybe 270/340. The gen2 2018+ seems to have added more than the 0/25 that ford claims. Still 3rd place in the line up though...

Also not sure why the 5 star 5.0 dyno was so low. There are many making over 340 stock, some as high as 360-370.

Interesting observation is that the diesel makes the most below 3200 rpm, 3.5 makes the most from 3200-5200, and 5.0 makes the most over 5200. Intuitive I suppose.

Also interesting that all the gas motors make the same power at 5250 rpm, where hp and torque also intercept.

Good points , its about the whole curve not just a number .. the 50 makes lots less TQ where one drives thats what stands out to us here. the diesel is just a good reference point for the got to have a diesel engine. i cant imagine the 50L being around in a gen 3 in a truck unless its turbo charged or something . the local dealer here as more 50 on the lot than any other engine. in our opinion the 2.7 gen 2 is the best motor of all of them gets the best mileage and makes good tq. and is calibrated the best from Ford. again our opinion. one other point in the 27 15-17 vs 18 all Ford did was command more Driver Demand to get more power thats it aka turned it up
