Is the oil filter in a different location or is it just easier to get to? I thought there could've been a better location than where it was on my 2012.

That doesn't seem too bad. I do a lot of 55-65 mph highway cruising so I'm thinking I would probably see mpg closer to 16. Do you run premium or regular fuel in it? I had a 2012 ecoboost that could...

I don't know what his dealer said but I had a dealer tell me there wasn't much they could do unless something failed. They could change the oil for me on my dime. They also said they don't go by what...

I would say the chances are pretty good for fuel diluted oil in a DI motor.

Check the couplings on the hot and cold side piping. Also check that there are no cracks in the IC. A significant whistle may mean there is a boost leak somewhere.

IIRC, when you upgraded to the FR IC there was no oil or moisture in the stock IC correct? The IC on my truck would be flooded in no time if not for the cans. In fact, when I removed them just...

I would say timing chains that prematurely stretch, fuel dilution, condensation build-up in IC, are big issues. Maybe ford fixed all that on the 2015, maybe not. Take a look at the 2011+ engine...

Sounds familiar.

I had dual catch cans on my 2012 and I was also draining a lot everyday. So much I added a reservior so I wouldn't have to drain it so frequently. It seemed to work for quite a...

Ford should've done this from the beginning. Half, maybe even less, chain stretch. Who knows, had they initially built the EB like this, we might not even have any chain stretch/noise threads on...

That sucks. At first I thought only the 2011s were affected then my 2012 started doing it. So I thought, OK the 2011-12s are affected. Now a 2013 is doing this. I was almost thinking of buying a 2014...

I also think it's ugly and reliability will be questionable since it is a Nissan. Next truck for me will probably be a HD F150 or Tundra if they make some key upgrades. I also read somewhere that...

Exactly what mine was doing.

Have you added a catch can yet? How much crap was in the old IC?

Ecoboost?

I would change it at 1000, 5000, then again at 10k and also take a sample at the 10k change and send it in for analysis. That will tell you if you need to change it sooner or not.

I wasn't impressed initially either but after seeing one lifted in person and the lifted/leveled ones on here, I've kind of changed my mind. This seems to be a body style that needs bigger tires,...

My 2012 EB could handle 80 mph and 20 mph headwind all day long without down shifting. Of course the mpg would suffer going that fast with a headwind but it had no trouble doing it. I would expect...

Can you take some pics of the intercooler? I want to see how different from my '12 the IC is.
