Default Ford F150 Maybe

Hi all, new to the forum, never owned an F150. I've owned a 1978 F350 (sold, sadly) and currently own a 4x4 E350.

I've been seriously considering an F150 for quite awhile, can't decide between the 2018/19 5.0 and the 3.5EB. If I do the 5.0 I'd be looking at supercharging it. Otherwise, tuning the EB. Looking forward to researching more on this forum.

Hey KLHBeetle,
I just swapped from owning 2 in a row Silverado's with 5.3L v8's to my first F150. I bought the 3.5l EB, and couldn't be more happy with the truck! It's much quicker than my silverado's were, interior is outstanding and it tows way more. Check the specs as I don't remember exact data offhand, but even within the F150 platform, the 3.5L EB tows more than the 5.0 V8. That's what swayed me to the EB and I'm super stoked I did. It's a great truck.

The 5.0 is suited to tow like the 3.5eco, you just need to upgrade the thermal management components. If you can afford to supercharge it, transmission and oil coolers are no big deal.
