The pressure from boost will overcome any venturi effect. The CAC is always under pressure when driving. Even when the manifold is under vacuum.

Yes it is. The vast majority of owners report that the dash meter is within .5 mpg.

My lifetime hand calculated is 18.9. The dash readout for that period is 19.2. I check every tank and it is...

On my wife's vw, the fuel full door will not open unless the car is unlocked. Brilliantly simple.

But super vexing if the dealer didn't tell you about it and you lock the car to go in the store...

Darn right. That's why engines have done nothing but shrink and get more powerful over the last 40 years.

Car max has their own auction network. With their own database. Plus they actually disclose problems to buyers at auction so they can get a premium sometimes.

I agree, I'm much more concerned with valve coking and timing chain wear than turbo failure. Though a valve cleaning every 100,000 isn't nearly that expensive. $500-600 unless you pay Ford to do it...

The short answer is I don't see how anybody could think the 2v 5.4 has more power, but depending on driving style, yes I can understand some peoples preference for the 3v. I disagree, but I get it.

There are certainly exceptions like the gm 2500 gas 6.0. I swear it wouldn't die. But most engines are seriously down on compression by that time and need an overhaul. By 200,000 miles gas engines...

Funny thing. Turbos are about as reliable as sunroofs (guaranteed to eventually fail, generally good for 100,000 -150,000miles or 5-10 years) and cost about the same to replace. +/- $1500.

I'd check on that. With LT tires, most have you run higher pressure to have the same load capacity of the stock p rated. I keep our Lt tires over 40 all the time and boost near 50 towing. But it...

365hp is on 87 octane, it does have a few more on 93. But it is rated on 87. Unless it is in a Lincoln.

With vvt, you should run premium on the 5.0 towing as well. It helps.

Haters gonna hate, even in ignorance. Obviously there is a lower limit to acceptable engine size for longevity and efficiency. The 2.7 may be close to it, who knows.
