Can't beat a V8!

Ford owners sue, saying EcoBoost engine defective | Fox News

Say what you want to about turbos and EcoBoost, but this is another reason why you can't beat a V8!

There's nothing wrong with using smaller engines and boosting them. But when you do that, there are complications that arise with it. It's just more stuff to go wrong. I'll be following the story on a completely objective stand.

There's something wrong with every new power-train that comes out, in the first few years.

Oddly enough, the Coyote motors weak spot is the MT82 it's attached to.........for REAL drivers, that is.

I wouldn't call the power train referenced in the law suit "new". It's been the motor in the SHO for quite a few years now.

I have a 2011 F150 4x4 w/ the ecoboost and love it!
I think some have had problems but lots have been sold.

There will be no more V8 is better than V6 or any other engines. Its an instant argument starter. This is considered trolling here. If you don`t like anything but a V8, than buy one. Nuff said!
