Man dude, unfortunately you should have posted here before bringing truck to the dealership. I know at least 3 guys that had same issue (hole in block) while running tune and aftermarket parts, they all put the stock parts back on and drained the battery (after returning to stock tune) and they all were covered under warranty, a couple were ESP warranty too

Yeah, I was on the road hundreds of miles from 'home' and didn't have the parts; luckily I did not have a tune on the motor so I now have to prove a CAI and intercooler did not cause a piston rod to come apart.

Hi guys, great video.

I had a con rod go through the block on my 2011 EB last week.

Does anybody know if the 2014 EB engine will work in a 2011 F150? Or what needs to be modified/changed? I have pulled the engine and am looking for a replacement but it seems like the 2011 and 2012 engines are a hot item at the auto wreckers.

Any help is much appreciated!

Pm me if your interested. It won't be as cheap as a junkyard motor or a factory new oem but you will have better rods pistons and bearings.

And not worth converting but there is only one main component that is different on the engine more or less

If the Ecoboost didn;t have these problems then the used engines wouldn't be so expensive. Huge demand generated by huge number of engine failures. Mine threw a rod at 83K miles and had since new. Anal about maintenance. Second engine did the same at 90K miles. Third engine will be someone elses problem after I slowly drive to the Toyota dealer. F150 is a POS!

You need an engine from a truck with VIN code 8th digit "T". Computer interface and all that. From someone that is on their third POS Ecoboost. Toyota gets lots of great advertising by Ford Tough program. That's what they tell you when the engine fails. Good luck.

So you pull a 2 year old thread and start pissing and moaning.... I'm guessing your definition of "anal about maintenance" is piss poor, leading to your failures.

But hey, good luck on the Toyota forums!!! I'm betting you contribute very little there. Buh-bye!
