I dont know much about the 3.5 except it is rated at 365hp@5000rpm and i think the trans 1to1 gearing is prob in 4th so 3200 is way low to get max HP like you say

Jack
for one it was not my truck, but I have been on the dyno rollers many times
, maybe some of us like performance vehicles and want to see what they are capable of. the many times that I have been to a dyno event and watched hundreds of spins it is kind of hard for the operator to brake a vehicle, most engines break all by them selfs when weak parts are installed

Who said the EB was a junk. The only negative was a joke. A little sensitive. This sounds like a user error or a problem with a part. I would think Ford would want to see the crank.

Exactly! And f250s are junk too. My buddy ran over a pipe and it went right thru the floor,..... junk im telling you, utter junk I never ran over a pipe in my chevy or dynod it either!

Im just joking guys. For real though I did just fix my buddys f250 that had a pipe go through the floor of his truck about 3" behind drivers seat. God was smiling on him that day as the pipe was head rest level when he got stopped! That's livin right for sure!!!

I thought that was what ford recomended when working on thier vehicles, that way you cant remember ever working on them- helps dull the pain;D
Sorry just gotta stir the pot a little!!!

Btw for the sensitive types- I'M JUST KIDDING AROUND!!!

Edit -- D, yeah its something like that, I just used duck tape- bout the same mil thickness!

Don't worry about it dwaynerz, when you get to be my age you'll discover the fix for those squeaks and rattles is simple...don't wear your hearing aid when driving.

@jevanb: Be sure to let us know what the dealer does, or doesn't do, for your friend.
