Welcome to F150Ecoboost.net , the premier Ford F150 Ecoboost Forum dedicated to all Ford F150 Ecoboost owners and enthusiasts.

While researching F150 Ecoboost trucks on the Internet I noticed there wasn't one solid source of information for these new Ford Trucks. Sure, there are plenty of great F150 Forums that covered every make and model, but when it came to the new twin turbo F150 there wasn't a "goto place" for the information I was looking for. A few months later I purchased my first Ford Truck, a 2012 Ford F150 FX4 with the 3.5 liter Ecoboost motor and F150Ecoboost.net was born! We aim to be a friendly, educational community dedicated to everything about the 2011-2013 F150 Ecoboost line of Ford Trucks.

Why Ford Owners Say Ram Air Hood for Ford F-150 is Not Worthy

In one of the Ford F-150 groups where I am a member there is a discussion whether the ram air hood for Ford F-150 is a worthy replacement. Most F150 owners say No! Here is why.



They say the Ford F150 hood replacement isn't worth the money, but it's pretty and looks good. The owners who have tried, some say you won't get much functionality if any. You won't get much Horse Power on your F150. The only thing is that you will drop a little bit of weight.


The cost of the ram air hood replacement is another factor to consider. It is likely that it will cost you minimum 1000 dollars. It's not only the price of the ram air hood, but also the installment. Instead, F150 owners suggest that there are better modifications that one can do on his truck. However, they agree that it does look really cool.


Whether it helps with engine temperatures in hot weathers I don't know because I read mixed reactions from the people who had installed it. Some people said it will not help. Others say with the location of the filter on your F150's procharger a hood like this would help with timing on hot days.


You have to be careful with the quality too. If you intend to buy one do your diligent research. A lot of these hoods are thing and just don't have a good quality. People say Cervini is good and durable, but I have not tried it. So becareful from thing and low quality ram-air hoods.


Have you made any recent replacement of these ram hoods on your F150? If yes, please, feel free to comment your experience with TorqueNews readers.

What Is The Possibility of Ford F150 Hybrid

We learned back in January that Ford will have a hybrid version of their popular F150 pickup on sale by 2020 and with the discussion of electrified pickups flaring up lately, today we take a look at the possibilities for the most fuel-friendly Ford F-Series.




Since Ford announced around the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit that they would be bringing hybrid versions of the Mustang and F150 to market by 2020, the company hasn’t had much to say about either of these popular models being offered with an electrified version. However, Business Insider spoke with Ford Chief Technology Officer Raj Nair, the latest bit of information on the electrified F150 hit the internet.


Nair told Business Insider that while a plug-in electric Ford truck isn’t out of the question in the future, but for the short term, we can expect to see a hybrid F150 with an internal combustion engine mated with an electric-assisted hybrid drive system.


But when the Ford F150 Hybrid arrives in the next few years, what exactly can we expect? We don’t know for sure, but based on the few clues along the way, we can make some guesses. Today, we look at the basic possibilities for the first hybrid Ford pickup.


Guessing the Ford F150 Hybrid Drivetrain
So far, the only information on the hybrid F150 promised to arrive by 2020 is that it will offer “powerful towing and payload capacity”. That is pretty vague, but we also know that the Ford Mustang is slated to get a hybrid drivetrain by 2020 and it is more than possible than these two vehicles will share a hybrid drivetrain. After all, the F150 and Mustang have shared many engines over the years and according to Ford, the hybrid Mustang will pack “V8 power and even more low-end torque”, so it seems reasonable to believe that the Mustang hybrid with V8 power and torque could serve as a great hybrid drivetrain for the F150 as well.
