its not even a competition with the pentastar. If anything it will be against the new v6 diesel for the 1500 Rams. Since both those motors see's maximum torque #s at around 2000rpms. Speaking of tuners, what do you think they will be doing to that vm diesel? I know Banks has a leg up on that motor..looking forward to what they can squeeze out that lil diesel. As of now the ecoboost trucks tuned with basic boltons are seeing 500wtq/ 360whp..running high 12.8s in a 6000lb truck. I see this Tremor running mid 12s with just a tune. They are going straight for the Ram R/T market, pretty obvious.
Banks should be coming out with something nasty for this VM diesel..

you know i think your right autobred. this is definitely an interesting attempt by ford. but after hearing all the issues with the ecoboost engines. i'd rather stick with a good ol hemi and use more gas. lol.
