Because it can be done (VERY easily and reliably). Not so with a 2.7 ECO ..........
And if the bronc came with a coyote, there would be a factory supported
blown coyote bronco with warantee, just like the stang and F150 have.........
Many have blown up at those levels too, it's a crapshoot at those numbers, as they are on the edge of expecting
really good reliability chances. At least go turbo, so you aren't wasting 130+ HP just to get that 850.
They don't win in loaded MPG and they don't win in throttle response.
They certainly don't win in ultimate power if you FI the V-8.
And yes, I get that most won't care about any of that in the new bronco
I'm not so much worried about that stuff while it's new, but I keep my cars in some cases over 30 years
(getting very expensive and difficult to get EEC-IV's now).
Will whatever control system Tesla uses now, even be available in 2050? Maybe it's
easier to just rip the whole thing out and...
A larger engine. tuned less aggressively per it's size, will virtually always last longer.
That and the 2.7 was designed from the get go for a half ton truck, 2.3 was made for the MKC first I
I believe (and then mustang). Also, two turbos @ 325 HP are working much easier than one @ 310 HP (or...
Glad that that park is still going, as the owners really got screwed by a corrupt local Pa judge
that "stole" that land from them.
They put a paved road across the rock field that makes a neat pic every year...
My dealer said the biggest problem is you can't reseal any of the pans.
He said they can't get all the RTV off any old one and it has to be a really
solid, oil free seal, or it won't work. So basically every time you seal it, you have
to buy a new pan.
Hope they re-desgined that plastic oil pan. I just got my 3rd pan last week (second leaked immediately right at the dealer, so they said) and it's
apparently not just Fusions.
Have to wonder if Ford is going to go deeper on gears if you can really get 35's and manual. 4.30's maybe?
(assuming both 6/7 are overdrives) Anyway, I sort of did the same thing with 33's, T-18 (6.32 first), with 3.50 gears,
making 4th a sort of effective OD.
We've had discussions on...
Just thought it was comical how he's claiming "reliability problems for almost all vehicles are overblown" , yet just the other day it was " Sounds like the new 2018+ Coyote sucks.", due to supposed reliability problem.
No, it was funny as heck. :clap:
I've wondered if Ford was going to come up with some kind of killer
traction control to help overcome not having a wheel on the ground. In theory, you have all the weight
on that one tire, it should have pretty good traction IF you can turn that diff into...
It was supposed to be made into a FEDEX airport. Bottom line is there was a huge amount of money and politics
that forced the owners to sell and open a park in Ohio or Mich, IIRC. Then "someone" finally figured out the place is one big valley.
I never could figure out where they were going to...
