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.
