  2. 2nd Gen F150 Ecoboost
    Every now and then, I like to rev the engine a little, but when I did it today noticed a distinct difference in noise beginning around 3,500 RPM and above. The engine sound turns more coarse and reminds me of Honda's VTEC kicking in at a predetermined RPM. I recorded this sound clip with my...
  3. 2nd Gen F150 Ecoboost
    For a while I've been researching why some 2nd gen 3.5s make a knock-like noise that resembles a diesel. Today I've come across a great video of a 2017 3.5 that sounded identical to a 2018 I filmed last year (I have the video in another thread). This guy mentions that all cam phasers were...

    I have a 16’ 3.5 eb turbo. Idk when it started or when I noticed maybe 50k-ish? I noticed a little jump in my idle while parked. Didn’t really think anything of it. Did a kam reset, no dice. So as it was getting up in miles around 80k I decided to take it to the dealership while it was still...

    Hello everyone, I’m new here. I’m in love with the F150 and I’m buying one. I like the 3.5 ecoboost quite a lot. Although I live in Europe and I need to convert to LPG. I was at a car dealer the other day, and he said the 3.5 ecoboost has huge problems running on LPG. Because it is turbo...
