2016 Ford F-150 XLT 2.7L
I was wondering the gear ratios and here they are.
The rotational speed will be near the same probably higher for the hub mount. All that spinning mass can be scary.Yes, but not on a hub dyno.
It would affect it some because the engine is accelerating the mass of the driveline at a greater rate. So its having to fight the mass of all of that stuff.I wonder how much it affects your numbers, running in 3rd gear versus 4th and then considering your gear ratio.
3.73 is what you need.I was shocked at the dyno results, the 3rd gear pull hit 116mph, I didn't even know my truck would go 116...then I looked at my rating on my tires and it's 99....living on the edge. Gears are 3.31 but the low end torque on these trucks really hides the gearing disadvantage. If I hadn't spent all my money on my engine I would definitely be gear shopping right now, prolly after the wedding, everything I have left plus probably what I make for about 5 months will be covering that tab
103 mpg on the 3-4 for me with 3:55’s and 33’s on the ol 6 shooter. Raised redline too.You must have 3.73 axles. At WOT, mine stays in 3rd til speed limiter around 107. 3.55.
