Hemi vs Ecoboost
 
My wife and I were coming home tonight from grocery shopping when we pulled up behind a 2006-2007 Crewcab Ram Hemi which looked bone stock, still had factory single exhaust on it and a extended cab F150 ecoboost at a red light. Well they took off and I was surprised that the 3rd Gen hemi kept even with it for awhile till it fell to the ecoboost's back bumper then thet both left off. After seeing this I think the 390hp hemi stands a chance!

those ecoboost trucks dont worry me one bit, of course i havent raced one yet tho lol.. i figure with my rcsb truck with the mods i have there shouldnt be any problem beating one

I test drove an ecoboost in a reg cab f150, and wasn't impressed with it at all. I'm sure they are nice when you do a tune and downpipe.

Iv raced my friends brand new one twice.. Beat it the first time by a half car length. Then by a full on the second run. I hate Ford's.. :)

Cooks exhaust adds 35 whp and 50 ft lbs...add a tune and us hemis are screwed. That's a lot of power w/o hardly any work. Hate em all you want, but coming from turbo cars (including a GN) I'm here to tell you turbos are just awesome.

Yeah i completely understand. :/ Iv been around plenty of turbos before. A simple down pipe and tune can do wonders. Iv been contemplating getting a Challenger and twin turboing it myself. But i don't have the money and i couldn't get rid of my truck. But ud have to knock me out and drag me into the drivers seat of a Ford, and thats the only way id drive it. :box2: lol

Yeah, not necessarily advocating the Ecoboost here but there are a couple of exhausts that pick up 35+ HP and 50+ TQ and the Superchips Flashpaq adds 54 HP and 68 TQ. 89HP/118TQ....that's pretty crazy for $900 worth of bolt-ons that can be installed in two hours in your driveway.

I still wouldn't buy one over a new Ram though, lol.

Not to get off subject but how are the 6.2s running. Got a buddy with a crew cab thats talking alot of smack

starquestbd22 01-02-2013 11:29 AM

I don't really know much about the 6.2L but in an F150 with 411HP/434TQ it might be tough to beat. Looks like the Superduty trucks with the 6.2 are down on power a little and being a heavier truck I would guess might be easy pickings.

Chrysler is already working on a supercharged 6.2 hemi for many models, including the Rams, I have read. MDS for mileage, Rootes blower for instant whallop. Gonna take a lot of boost for the little V6 to catch.
