I think it is discussed pretty exhaustively in a bunch of threads, but my experience specifically had been excellent. I have the combo in my current F150 and have had it and the 5.0 in basically the same truck. I have had zero problems, power is awesome and fuel economy is also very good. Both noticeably better than the 5.0. I am at my cabin now and got 25.6 mpg with a light load this trip, average almost 80mph on the highway, combined with about the same miles (60 miles each) at 62 average mph on the balance of the trip. Lots of tuning potential, with tons of examples of 400+HP and 450 lb. ft. of torque with just programming and intake modifications. Add The combined DI and Port fuel injection, that avoids some of the problems with DI only motors (2.3 and 3.5 eco boost among lots of others) and you have a really nice power train. Just my experience and some well documented tuning performance. (Look on YouTube for some amazing Fusion Sport 2.7 quarter mile runs!).Do anyone know what this combination is like for dependability, Reliability, In other Ford vehicles?
Yeah there is definitely one out there. Remember reading about it on here somewhere. They 'designed' it for Truck applications so theoretically it was fitting under skid plates even though it was increased capacity.Any idea if there is an aftermarket oil pan one can upgrade to?
