I’m amazed how much output jeep get out of a production 2.0 turbo, 270hp/295tq. I remember being amazed at the power output of the lotus esprit turbo when it came out in the early 80s with 210hp/200tq. Turbo engines have fascinated me ever since, but I didn’t get one until my 2016 F150. My 14yo is getting interested in cars, motorcycles and how to weld. I think I will start hunting for a standard transmission project vehicle we can work on together that he can then drive when he turns 16. He’ll need something that fits his mountain bike and hockey equipment.

Turbos are definitely cool.

I will say that I had a Legacy GT before my F150 which was the 2.5L turbo. I really didn’t like the power delivery of that motor coming from a 6.0L LS2 GTO. The thing was gutless below ~2700 rpm and then the turbo would light off out of no where.

These GTDI’s really make the turbos very seamless.

The dog is tired of isolating and we’re about done with the snow.

Thought of @snakebitten when I saw it. I believe you're a fan of these grills? Have you seen one on a Fraptor?

Dude who owns that (Sunny) lives right up the highway from me. I actually bought my lairat leather take offs from him including the complete rear seat.
It's even more beastly in person

I want a version of the Raptor grille that doesn't have the lights, or the letters. I want the honeycomb, and a Ford oval in the center just like I have. Like the '18+ sport grilles. So far I haven't found it.
