The eco-boost is a pretty good motor, thanks to the turbo it has a huge torque curve even though it has less HP and a tighter Gear Ratio then our 4th Gens as well. On the 1/4 I'm sad to say he will win.

what gear ratio and cab configuration do you have? are both trucks stock? if you don't have the 3.92s I don't think I'd even try.

I'd go so far as to say unless you have the 4.10's from the R/T don't try it. His description says he has the Longhorn, so I'm guessing Crew Cab.

yeah, didn't know the longhorn was only offered in c/c. but I asked about mods b/c the 4th gens are pretty quick with some basic mods. if you catch your Ford buddy sleeping at the light and doesn't get the turbos loaded even for a split second he'll lose. I think the stock EBs run in the high 14s.

some good times in here of lightly modded 4th gens

So far no tuners have been released for the 2011+ models. Depending on what you want to do you can get a jump on some performance parts like the exhaust system and the typical intake. If your going for more performance (like a supercharger) in the long run I'd say go with the American Racing Long Tube Headers as they're a bit spendy so you might as well go ahead and get that out of the way now. If not, you can go with a pair of Shorty Headers from JBA. They bolt up to your catalytic converter and do a nice job of adding some more low end power to these trucks. Personally I wouldn't do a whole lot to the exhaust as the trucks do come with a decent set of pipes underneath, just switch out the muffler and have a new Y-pipe put in as the pinched stocker kind of sucks and delete the resonators if that's your thing as well.

Like suggested above...keep the exhaust simple with a cut and replace of your muffler. No need to do a whole lot there unless you wringing it all out. I'll be listing my aFe stage 2 CAI for sale next month if you are interested. I ordered my supercharger last week and won't have any use for it after the install.

I would start with a 4.10 lsd and a good cai filter for your heavy truck. The eb's are running high 14's to low 15's so you need to be somewhere near those numbers to compete with ur freind. Your stock exhaust is good as gold, louder isn't nessisarily faster. It will even sound like shit in most cases when mds kicks in so I'd save that for last. Gear and breather is good for starters and good for munching on eb's. I have a much lighter rcsb/3.92 so I have no problem with them. It's been a while since disposing of two...now they see me, hear me, and look away pretending I'm not there...oh well? EDIT: I forgot to mention that these mods I mention will not affect ur 2012 warranty. At some point down the road u can install a good converter fo a killer launch and holeshot but it will or possibly affect ur warranty.
