Also...comparing the quarter mile times of a pony car to a 4 door truck is kinda silly. I mean...I had a CBR 1000 that ran high 10s with ease... Is any of that relevant to trucks....nope. ;-)
Just adding context why I have little interest in how fast my Clydesdale is.

If I wanted to run a 14-15sec quarter I wouldn't spend $60k on a truck to do it.

2011 Ford F-150 XLT Super Crew 4x4 (5.0L V8) 0-60 mph 6.6 Quarter Mile 14.9

2011 Ford F-150 Lariat EcoBoost 4x4 (3.5L Twin Turbo V6) 0-60 mph 6.1, Quarter Mile 14.6

2011 Ford F-150 Harley Davidson Edition (6.2L V8) 0-60 mph 6.2, Quarter Mile 14.8

Using the same years, the 3.5 is 0.2 seconds faster in the 1320. Each 0.1 second is roughly a car length. Getting beat by two car length is considered "getting smoked" in anybodys book and hardly considered "neck and neck."

A 2107 F150 with the 3.5 and 10 speed will run 0-60 in 6.1 and 14.4 in the Quarter Mile. That's a 4 car length difference... That's called getting embarrassed.

The real fun is when you start playing with them. 500.00 sunk into an EcoBoost can net you ~80HP at the rear wheels and drop you into the 13's in the 1320. 500.00 sunk into a 6.2 gets you more noise and no worth while increase in performance.


Interesting enough, a short bed, regular cab, 2wd with the 5.0 and an aggressive tune can break into the 12's if its set up right.
Dude, you are the one that said a few posts before this that a 3.5 and a 5.0 embarrassed the 6.2

I said no, that they were neck and neck with an Eco and faster than a 5.0

You then argue while posting evidence fully backing up what I said but are still talking about how the 5.0 was better, and how much better a new Ecoboost is. ******? You trolling man?

I know how quick tuned Ecos are, I have had two of them, still not any reason to ******** on a great engine like the 6.2

Available from 2011 to 2014. It was dropped in 2015. (for F150's).

I just like the beastly hunk of metal under the hood. :D The robustness of the engine. Deep rumble. Which is why I wouldn't mind a 7.3, either. But I do not want or need a 3/4 ton. Which is why a 1/2 ton with this engine has intrigued me.
Well, there's your answer right there. Drop a 7.3L in an F150.... Makes perfect logical sense to me, lol





Actually.... I wonder if a 7.3 would fit in my F150...:unsure:

IKR.

I want a 7.3 gas in my 1996 Bronco. SO BAD

I'd actually be fine with a 2017+ 6.2 but no one does those swaps due to cost and complexity :(
Its no more complicated than a Coyote swap. The problem with the 6.2 is the lack of performance upgrades and they ones they do have are very pricy.
