They've hit the lots but I still haven't read much on them. I do t pick mine up til march and being in Afghanistan means I can't just go drive one. Anyone picked one up yet? Driven one?
I knew I wanted it when I read about it plus got a smoking deal. Plans include a 3"-5" drop, and all of the performance goodies. I was going to order a new mustang gt but I need something to haul my bikes. Plenty of time to research aftermarket before delivery but plan to order most everything before mid tour so I can wrench on it the two weeks I'm home.You ordered a new truck without seeing or driving it before hand? Your brave!
I hope it lives up to your expectations!
In STOCK form it will kill a BUNCH of muscle cars. Not the Vette in stock form but a bunch none-the-less. With some work they'll all be victimizable.
This▲▲▲. The ecoboost will have more potential than the Lightnings. Once we figure out fueling. Our engines are 6 bolt mains and forged internals. Dude thats killer. That can handle nearly anything short of dynamite in the combusiton chamber.With a little work the lightning wasn't doing a bad job of it. I'd say this has just as much potential.
Sorry I misspoke. Not forged internals but a forged crank. I had to look this up. Pistons and rods aren't forged but the crank is. This may not amount to much depending on the quality of the pistons and rods. Not being forged means they can be stronger but doesn't mean that they are weak by any means. Good hypers have made lots of power. There are cases where good hypers do better than cheap forged pistons. Keeping the tune safe will be paramount.So they are forged internals? Sweet! Someone will figure out how to pump more fuel and we can turn it up! Played with blowers on the lightning and my cobra but this will be the first turbo venture. Looking forward to it. I have $5k set aside for mods upon delivery. I'll start with basic bolt ons and tune. I keep watching these reputable tuners take it further and further.
[SMH] This is just freakin' GREAT!!! [/SMH]I love Fords sterling gray color.
Not hair...that's moss.[SMH] This is just freakin' GREAT!!! [/SMH]
For the record. The Black Lightnings were the fastest. We confirmed this with a race of all the color Lightnings in stock form and Black won everytime. Here is a picture at the finish line.

Now Lightnings were built for a different reason than our non SVT F150s and the dominance and superiority of Oxford White has already been discussed in the 'Arguing' thread. Check out this bulletin Ford put out.http://www.f150ecoboost.net/forum/11-off-topic/2075-arguing-23.html#post24658
You must always remember to remove the hitch from the receiver when not in use on Oxford White trucks. If left there while not in use the hitch balls will grow hair on them.
