Brand loyalty is the stupid.

I've owned one of everything from Japan to USA to Canada and heck even Mexico.

So carry on Mr hatchet man.

Damn shame these kinds of threads can't stay on track lol.

Cool man. Maybe we'll see you out there somewhere so I can check out your truck. May be in the market next season.

let me Rephrase that, I'm ( like some people on here) Read most if Not all the Trends, I dont own a Rockwood, But I read about what others have to say, and sometimes I post my opinion .. Now if thats wrong in your mind, sorry

Alright now, not trying to start any flame wars here
I invite any and all to comment as they please!

I was just being a bit snarky to the wizkid for posting (wrong) info in an attempt to prop up the particular brand that he (or) she is loyal to.

SO, getting back to what was supposed to be a discussion of new engine technology . . . . and the benefits of said technology . . .

Here are other interesting aspects . . .

Fuel economy should be better because
V-6 should have less internal friction than a V-8
Higher torque allows towing at lower RPMs resulting in less friction loss
Twin variable cams should allow optimal lifts and durations
6 speed auto gives you more options to optimize your RPM vs load
6 speed auto also designed to spend most of its time with the torque converter locked (versus previous designs) thereby increasing efficiency

There is potential for even more torque output because
Tuners always get more out of turbo applications
The discussed ratings were at 87 octane; 91 octane output will be higher

The VW turbo that I mentioned was interesting. It definitely was more powerful and responsive on 91 octane; very noticeable. Interestingly, it also got 2 mpg better fuel mileage on 91; therefore the power gains were "free" as the cost of the higher octane gas paid for itself with better fuel mileage.

When are you getting your '11 f-150 ecoboost Bob? Sounds like it may happen sooner than later! You only live once...
