Like furd, you talk a mean game from a safe distance...mono-e-mono, lol! You said it yourself "things that your truck can't do. Just because your truck is slow and can't out run the EB, doesn't mean everyone else can't. And I didn't call you out, your comment about the EB out running the Hemi all day long in the 1/4 called me out because I have a Hemi and unlike yours my truck is faster than an EB. And going as far to loose a great deal of money by swapping a 2010 Platnium F150 for a 2011 Ram shows your knowledge of real facts having something to be desired. I don't think you know what's better than what when it comes to trucks or performance so your opinions are mute.

Question ecoboost-Hemi

final word man. our stock 5.7 hemi's have a slower ET in the 1/4 mile the the F150 ecoboost. how much money do you care to bet. it's time put up or shut up. waiting"

to me the new dodge is a better looking truck( brawny, sporty, sound mean no aftermarket exhaust needed, longhorn interior is the Top Dog)

First, he was talking stock to stock. Not modded to stock. And so what if he went from a 2010 platinum to a 2011 longhorn? If he has the money to do so then it's his money, not yours. You can't control if people get new cars every year or not. And not everybody buys a truck for performance, some buy it for the towing, looks, or features. Finally, this is the US where no opinions are mute

Now now girls, let's relax... This ia a simple issue, if a newer turbo charged v6 engine is currently faster than a naturally asperated v8, so what?
General Motors did the same thing in the late 60's with their Turbo V6 Buick Grand National... Nothing new here, put a supercharger or turbocharger on any engine and you will greatly improve it's HP and performance, used alot in aircraft during WWII, Is this really worth arguing about, There might be a Ram Hemi that will beat an ECB Ford, and vise versa, may also come down to configuration and weights, gear ratios etc... I can boost a Hemi, and it will walk away from any ECB Ford... So what?
My Hemi makes very good power, the engine components are less stressed than any boosted engine, my Hemi will most likely out last and ECB six, will also most likely cost less to repair and to maintain. If you want a hot six, buy the Ford.... If you rather have a well proven v8, get a Hemi or Fords 6 liter V8, who cares?
Most of us didn't by our trucks to run in the NHRA, this is all about bragging rights...and at this moment in time, perhaps Ford has a slight edge on some points, but it will not stand long, Chevy or Dodge will find away to remove that edge... So let's just enjoy the wonderful trucks that we have purchased from Dodge, and continue to share upgrades and Ideas, Thanks

When it comes to mod's, isn't it easier to add a stroker kit or a pair of turbos to a V8 Hemi,
than it is to add a pair of cylinders to a V6 EB ?

Hemi with Twin Turbo's here running over 900 WHP: FTW! lol
http://www.lxforums.com/board/f384/e...57/index3.html


I think the R/T Ram being lighter (4700lbs) has a significant weight and gearing (4.10's) advantage over a base Supercab EB (5240lbs/3.73)
I've seen Ram R/T's running high 13's bone stock...no stock EB posting better than mid 14's so far.

For those with heavier stock QC and CC Ram's (or 4x4's with taller gears)....better choose your battles wisely
I'm okay with my RCSB 4x4 (with mods) but it wont be by much once the EB's start adding mods to get into the 13's too.

Agree. Mods need to swing the ban hammer on this thread. If for no other reason than to no longer allow people to misuse the term mano-a-mano which people not only misspell but also seem to think it means man-to-man.
