some other thing to think off if anyone is going to drag race a eco bost is the outside temps, since its turbo, if you race in hot condition it will be handicap by that but if you race them when its not so hot outside,.. te'll take avantage of the lower temp,..

anyway a few years back the gas turbo vehiculs use to affected by hot temp, maybe now they dont

Thats some quick times, and close racing Y'all sound like us, when I asked him to the pickup pull he said "I dont need to go to a pull to show you how its done, I'll pull you all over town any day" After the pull I showed him my 2nd place to trophy, and I told him "bring your A game next year" I lost by 5 feet to a '12 2500 ram with a hemi. Mine is just a 1500 and only had 1700 minles on it at the time. Now I'm at 9000 miles trucks broke in, and I'm more used to the truck so I'm confindent I'll out preform what I did last year. I'd drag race too though but we are both 4x4 and the only tracks close are 1/8 mile so I'm sure we wouldn't set any records lol

Those ecoboosts are quick. My buddy has a 13 cc 4x4. We added tuner, full turbo back exhaust and cai. And that thing is quick.

I did have my 35s and probably 6-700 lbs of tools in my tool box. And broke loose off the line

That's certainly not saying a new Hemi won't smoke a 6.2 F150.....I'm just judging by the numbers.
As of 2013 ford 6.2 was available in xlt trucks. Expensive option but option nonetheless. I was going to buy one before I bought my pentastar truck.

i wouldnt own a 6 banger anything. they sound horrendous. turbo or not. i kinda laugh when people spend the effort to try and make all these trucks "fast"...its a truck...itll only ever be "truck fast". thats it....fast for a truck...

not car fast...not street bike fast...but truck fast...(slow)

thats where ya kinda have to draw the line and accept the reality of it..

it's still fun to go truck fast and beat up on cars that weigh 2000+lbs less.
