Thanks Oakman, that's amazing to get that much power out of a V6.

The engine is capable, and the beefed up suspension is capable, but I wonder how well the tranny will hold up over the long haul of heavy towing.

BTW, that ecoboost V6 engine produces more horsepower and almost as much torque as the 2002 8.0 liter (488 cu in) V10 engine I had in my Dodge three quarter ton truck.

How did this thread end up talking about ecoboost and popcorn eating smilies. You guys are too nice on the manufacturers. That's why they continue to make sub standard products. The consumer will take what they are given. At least this group will. Just load your truck up with tools and do it yourself fixes and you're all set.
