Unless they're mismarking the 16 as a '17, all 2017's have the gen2 and 10sp. The gear indicator is a digital function and must be activated via the plus button on the gear shifter to show the gears.

using 10w30 is not going to void your warranty. Neither is 10w40.
The evidence they would need to prove that a heavier viscosity oil voided warranty...........i'd love to see it.

Disagree. Past history shows a propensity for a certain behavior, especially if more than one. The past history will be brought up in his trial, too.

knowing the stock turbos and how they fall flat on their face at the top of the powerband, I'd have to figure the rev limit (which is still 2krpm higher than diesels) is more related to the fact that...

the old theory was out of fear of oil coking up the turbocharger bearings after shutoff, going back to the early 90s Japanese turbo cars. Then when the import resurgence came about all the turbo kids...

Trust me when I tell you, you don't want airbags going off. They can hurt more than help in less severe situations.

The 2nd gen 3.5EB has it all over the 6.2, especially with the 10sp auto. More power and torque and a wider torque plateau.

the 7.3 is replacing the 6.2 as both a base engine in F250s/350s and replacing the triton V10 made for so many years for various applications. The stories were all over the media about this. The 7.3...

yeah. When 22 year old kids talk smack about how everyone is a bunch of p*ssies because they used to tow 13,000lbs with a 2005 5.4 "with no issues" and should be "no problem for your 5.0", but have...

Not even close. The 3.5's torque band is wider and flatter. If both had 3.31's or 3.73's the outcome would be the same, the 3.5 EB would win that acceleration towing up a grade.

My 3.5eb has 470ft-lbs of torque and what is it, 135hp more than the 3.0 powerstroke, and costs less? So it's faster, more powerful, and slightly less efficient. I've been getting 19.7 in mixed...

the 3.5 EB was built for towing. 470ft-lbs of torque, wide swaths of it available at low rpm. It's a beast of a motor, and will trick you into thinking it can tow almost anything. With the 5.0 and...
