Be ready to pull out the pocket book when you put in turbos, you know that's putting a lot of stress on a v6. Not to mention its a v6. Doesn't even sound mean

Why do people have this terrible fear of turbos? How often do they actually go out. I've never regretted have a tractor with a turbo because it may have to be replaced at some point. Why is it alot of stress on a V-6? The 3.7 V-6 shares the block with the 3.5, only it's bored out. The 3.5 also has different heads designed to take the extra stress. And then there's the people that freaking out about how unreliable the 'high-pressure' injection is. It's less than 10% of the pressure of CR diesel systems.

Diesels are made for turbos, not little bitty 3.6s. V6s are for girls or soccer moms espicially the ecoboosts. Most half tons never do any work, there like a mini van. I'm an American, and like the v8 sound and power, I don't like v6s, that's what they run over seas. This is America, and we run v8s, in cars and trucks not v6s.

You do nothing but trash talk the Eco-Boost. It's new technology. Who gives a crap if it sounds like a revvy V-6. It's got more torque than most V-8's on the market, and that's all that really matters. I dislike engines that have to rev to 4500 rpm to hit full torque. The Eco-Boost doesn't have to do that, the 5.7 Hemi does. How many cars do you see with V-8's? The vast majority of regular passenger cars have 4 and 6 cylinder engines. Bigger cars like Impala's and sports cars have v-8's, but a regular car doesn't. You are aware that the sports cars in Eurpoe regularily run v-12's? They're likely laughing at all the V-8's in North America. The Eco-Boost was designed with a turbo in mind. It was built to withstand the power/heat/boost. Your 5.7 has just short of 400hp. That engine would grenade really quick at 600-700hp. The engine was not built to take it. The Eco-Boost is also alot more tune-able in theory as well. The fear of turbos just amazes me. Everybody trusts them on a diesel, but not on a gas.

Come take a ride in my Neighbor's eco-boost, with a free flowing exhaust. It is a extended cab 4X4. And it really pulls hard! Vic

Not to mention. I won't have any repair bills on the hemi either, the ecoboost will tear a hole in your pocket, wait a few years or 100,000+ miles. Your neighbor will be regretting buying it.

And it still sounds like a v6, come take a ride in my hemi. Has a nice v8 rumble, its a 2500 and is a lot more truck. And pulls like a diesel with the 4:56 gears, the ecoboost s ain't gonna come close to it.

His eco-boost may have 500 hp Yes Dodge Hemis do run good, but 2 turbo's are the deal breaker. Take the turbo off a 5.9 Cummins and you will have a max of 150 hp. but have 400 with a turbo! and 1200 if you are serious. I have a 6060 AC with 200 cu. It has a turbo and a intercooler. I turned it from 60 hp to 100 hp before they delivered it in 83. It is just a spraying tractor now (7500) hrs. The turbo has never been off. Just the diesel pump twice. and adjusted the valves year before last. Yes I drive a 5.9 Cummins and a 5.4 Ford. Vic

Yes but diesels are made for turbos, not v6 gases. And that ecoboost ain't got no 500hp. A hemi will walk all over a ecoboost. I'll twin turbo my hemi and it will probebly have 600-700hp but it will be putting stress on the rest of the motor.

Ford's sales are up 17% last quarter, GM and Chrysler 11% Toyota down, I think 4%. The little V 6 has 6 main bearing bolts!

Still isn't a v8, there sales can keep going up, gm and Chrysler won't be quitting making vehicles anytime soon. Ford will have to do something different when the 6.4 hemi is going in trucks next year, hope they figure something out, and I hear the powerstrokes are still a mess, have already heard horror stories on the 6.7s not to mention the 6.0s and 6.4s. Only good one they have made is the 7.3
