Hey guys,

I have a 2012 4.6 DC and my brother in law just bought an eco boost and I have been giving him the gears about wanting one of them, trying to convince him that the tundra was twice the truck any ford will ever be. So now I am just waiting for the day to race him. I know the 5.7 beats the ford but what about the 4.6? Is it faster if it is 4 wheel drive? and what setting should the traction control be set in?......I now the best awnser is get the 5.7 with a supercharger:lol5: and I am kicking myself for not buyin it.....we all make mistakes.

Thanks

No, don't put it in 4wd.
Did you turn the nannies off?
I haven't tried yet? Just wanted to know the best setting to have it in

I know the ford is fast but I haven't heard anyone else try in a 4.6 and the only one on YouTube with a 5.7 handled the ford pretty easily.

I'm interested to find out. One thing for sure....I know I will make it to the finish line, the ford I'm not so sure about :cool:

a 4.6 will likely lose, sorry.

You are talking about a 3.5, forced induction, which basically adds about 40% more volume if i remember correctly, their v6 is essentially a 5.4...


have at it, but with a 4.6 it is a waste, if you wanna talk shit you have to get the engine worth talking shit about, not the baby 6. SRY.

Depends on the driver, and what most people don't think of is the options on the two trucks. I can guarantee a 157inch wheelbase supercrew EB will not beat the Tundra crewmax 5.7l stock to stock. Now if you get some idiot in a 146inch wheelbase EB against a crewmax 5.7l then you've got a battle. Keep in mind everything has to be compared weight wise concerning features. Base model trucks weigh less which in racing is everything.

Which one will outlast the other, that's the race I am waiting to see who wins.
I have 5.7 crew, for some reason eggobousts want to fly buy me. I just drive my speed trying to get decent gas mileage. All I know is that any forced induction will wear on an engine, and a V6 truck with charger is dumb. Now for max power they need to ECCOBOUST the 5 liter OR the 6.2. Then we can talk!

Please tell me more about this... Considering I know lots of folks with turbocharged engines with lives lasting well into the hundreds of thousands of miles.

I turbocharged car and a turbocharged truck are two different beasts. If used as a truck should be, towing and hauling, I would say that the truck turbo will take a toll much faster than a car that only bears it's own weight plus drivers. I think that is the point. Turbo based vehicles have been around for a long long time. A turbo gasser hauler? Not convinced.

I like Ford trucks, but I'm not a Guinea pig.
