  8. Bull Bars and EcoBoost Intercooler

    F150 Ecoboost Chat
    I just purchased a bull bar for my 2015 f150 ecoboost. I have read not to put certain bull bars on EcoBoost engines because of blocking intercooler. The bull bar I purchased has the cut outs in the front. 50% of the people say it's ok and the other 50% say no. I don't want to cause any issues...

  17. EB to 7.3

    F150 Ecoboost Performance
    Can I install 7.3 powerstroke turbos on '14 EB? Is it possible? What would it take? I would like larger turbos, and would much rather take them from a salvage 7.3 or the likes then to just go out and buy all new turbos. Or is it even worth the hassle to swap them? Thanks, Matt
