Lol yea I got excited too quick after finally touching my truck after nearly a year of nothing. Anyway I'm now shopping 5.3's and nv3500 trannys. Ecoboost is what I really want but ford just doesn't make this crap simple.

Is the current motor quitting on you or do you just want more power? haha

Just want more power. Torque specifically. Also a new project is a bonus as my truck has just been finished and enjoyed for over a year.

Really pissed about the ecoboost but a lumpy v8 will make me smile too

If you want torque, have you considered going with a diesel?

Long travel suspension wouldn't like the weight of diesel anyway

Well I got the 2.0 ecoboost...


It's just in my girlfriends focus ST. Doubt she'd be too happy if I removed it
