You're the one that mentioned the V-6 car engine that gives the Ram the ability to get good mileage. Go to YouTube and take a look at the videos of races. Of the videos I could find, it was about half-half. It's a new engine, it's available in the most popular truck. The one that makes or breaks their truck division. It's incredible how blind you are. We'll see in a few years who was right. The Hemi will be as dead as a 350 SBC. It's over for that crap. It's old almost dead technology. The numbers tell one story, and you just keep telling me how your PowerWagon with 4.56 gears beats your counsin's Eco-Boost 3.55 gears. Not a big surprise. Now put a truck with 3.55 gears and a Hemi and a truck with 3.55 gears and an Eco-Boost against each other,and the difference you claim to be there is gone. Any ability you have to kill an Eco-Boost is because of your final gear ratio. Period. It ain't because of the 5.7 or a superior transmission. There's alot of people who don't have their Daddy's money burning a hole through their pocket. They have to pay for gas, so mileage matters to them. Even a contractor or somebody who uses the truck day in and day out, who use it both as a crew transporter and tow rig, have to worry about mileage. At the end of the day your truck is a toy. I could get the same work done with a 15 year old 3/4 ton Chevy. You don't need all the extra's, it's just an expensive toy to you.

That's alright, everyone needs a toy, its kinda my baby, she gets washed weekly if not two or three times a week, and waxed monthly, and a half ton just wouldn't do what I need it to do, the ecoboost would make me a good grocery getter that's about it. Lol hope you have luck with it, twin turbos sound like a expensive bill after warentees out.
