My 15 3.5 tune only eco is the fastest truck I've ever had. It would kill pretty much any stock trans dmax. It would have beat my max effort zf truck too.

I've been wanting to get one myself as a family ride.

Get with Innovative diesel, They have some flat out awesome eco boost tunes also known as (eco injections, or id motorsports)

My brother in-laws 2014 eco truck had a box sct file that I put on it since I had one laying around.. it improved it and ran good... Got a file from Innovative and it flat out runs circles around the standard sct, also shifts much better.

I’m not gonna lie guys this thing is pretty quick. I’m happy with my decision. And being a platinum dang she’s fancy lol I’d love a tune but pushing 300k I’m a little concerned about longevity. But I’d love to have a tune and intake and catless DP with an fte resonator and some batmowheels. It’s a great family truck. And still fun to drive and toes pretty good.

Just start with the tune! You don’t have a kid yet so no need for an exhaust to drone out the baby crying lol jk, this is probably why I don’t have any kids yet

5 inch straight pipe and mud tires isnít enough to drown out a crying kid. 1500w stereo does a decent job though.

I’m gonna our a solobaric 8” under the rear seat. Maybe some 35s on it eventually. I may start with a tune. But it runs great as is. Kinda wanna focus on the 6.2 right now ie banks turbo and rust removal. Maybe a nv4500 swap in the future

I currently have a 2012 eco boost xlt chrome package with 95k miles. I previously had a 2008 f350 6.4 that I sold a few years ago. The only thing I’m not happy with is towing my 27’ snowmobile trailer. The wind seems to move the truck around more than my old truck. Other than the fact that I miss having a diesel.

How do you feel your eco boost compares in towing and power? I’ve been eyeing up an 05 lly with 110k miles. I think it’s stock. Wondering how it would do compared to my eco boost for daily driving and towing? I know the Ford has a much larger backseat.

I miss my duramax. Bad. Of course the ecoboost is pretty freaking amazing. But my lb7 was a built trans tuned truck. One of the fastest in the county. I miss it like hell. But the ecoboost is really nice. Like the fuel price lol but as far as power and fuel economy, neither compare to my lb7. But it was far from stock.

Update. Just changed the oil to mobil 1 high mileage fill authentic. Got it for $19.98 for 5 gallons. Plus an extended performance Mobil 1 filter. Changed the plugs to sp534 gapped at .30. And changed the filter to an stp high performance air filter. So cr I like the truck. Much more fancy

I feel pretty much the same way. I miss my 02 LB7. Sure, this F150 is nicely loaded, huge interior, and overall nice truck, but man my built-trans & tuned LB7 was just plain fun and got every bit as good of fuel mileage. Although, by now I'd be dipping into the 15mpg realm with winter fuel in my LB7 whereas I'm steady at 17.5-18.5 with the ecoboost.

What I really am jonesing for is an ecoDIESEL but I doubt it'll happen. What I really need to do is just get my 83 done. If I can get it going, I'd probably sell the ecoboost, get an economy car to commute back & forth to work and put the extra towards a toy - really been wanting a square body race truck. Not even sure it'd be diesel/duramax. Kinda have a hankering for a turbo junkyard LS.

It’s official guys. A month into it and I’m ready to get rid of it. It’s a heck of a nice truck but dang it I miss my diesel. Gotta few options tho. The lot still has my old truck and never put it up for sale. Maybe buy it back? Or trade my dad for his deleted regular cab 6.7 Cummins with a built trans. But it’s an st so no power anything... or a buddy has an 02 Sierra ccsb with black leather and 280k ish he’d sell me for 8 grand but needs injectors.

i dont think hes made a rational decision since he joined here. i mean, we tried talking sense into him many times about bills, selling his truck, what parts to replace, etc and poor zack has to learn the hard way each time

Sorry Zack, just had to
