I wonder if the 5.0's numbers are on 93 octane like they've been rating all their engines lately. The 3.5EB numbers (365-420) are on 87 octane. It'll probably make Lincoln power (380-460) on 93...

I'm pretty sure they are the exact same engines and programming. It's just advertised numbers. Yes, the F150 and Navi will make those numbers. It's just Lincoln gets the highest advertised number...

EB with 3.73 FTW over a Tundra all day long as long as you do a boosted 4 wheel launch. Just my personal experience. I do run 91 octane for the extra power (est: 380hp/ 430lb-ft from a Ford...

I found the gold class to leave wax swirls when trying to remove. Took a lot of elbow grease to keep buffing. Their NXT seems to remove easier. I like them both, but prefer NXT. It shines just as...

Remove your (2) and replace it with a (1) and you'd have my avg mpg :blush:. Even with 70% freeway driving I can't crack 14 mpg total for the tank. Been like that since day 1. No change at any mile...

^ the reason nobody bats an eye at a 3/4 or 1 ton is that they are 7.5 - 8,000lb trucks. 8 sec 0-60 in a medium duty truck is stout to get that weight moving. The reason I'm picking on the ecodiesel...

Your EB also makes more torque and tows better. Seems like a good trade to get the same mileage and make more power.

My biased opinion is BFG. It has a more rugged looking sidewall. I have a friend who has ran both and he got rid of the Nitto's after 15k miles and went back to BFG. He said the BFG's wear better,...

No, the diesels 9.0 sec 0-60 mph is a turd of an engine in the Ram. Couple that with weak tow ratings. Ford is doing just fine with the EB. Not to mention the added cost of fuel and maintenance for...

If it (mirror cap) was flat black before the goof-up, I'd try to spray them with plasti-dip. If it turns out bad, just peel it off.

I have no idea how people get more than 14 mpg, unless they are driving slow and take off like snails. I'm an inpatient person and driving 55-60mph just doesn't cut it.
