Ecoboost torture test videos?

I thought the videos were Great to showcase the new engine. But even as a lifelong for fanatic I am a little skeptical at the head to head video. I just can't believe the Eco boost is that much faster than the dodge hemi and chev 5.3. It is like the other 2 gives the ecoboost a head start and lets them win. no way would the ford be that much faster. I like the new engine and have one ordered but i still have my doubts it is that powerful. What do you all think?

I'm going to assume you haven't seen the torque curve?

Or should I call it the torque line

Ford did produce the torque curve graph...it may be a slight biased, possibly, maybe....

It'd be nice to see a third party doing the tests and showing the same type of graph. Only then could I believe without a doubt.

Do you really think they are willing to bet their reputation and produce false dyno graphs that can be easily redone by third party testing? I'm betting no.

I don't. Doubt the torque just is it that much more than the other two? I guess I will find out when mine comes in

The graphs we have all seen from Ford are numbers produced at the crank of the engine. Put the trucks on dynos and the numbers will be very different at the wheels. This is where Ford could always dispute their testing.

The best way to know is with real world driving. I am very skeptical of the torque graphs from Ford. The reason being, I have test driven both EB and 6.2L. I have clearly found the 6.2L to have more "pull" throughout the RPM bandwidth. The graphs from Ford don't show it like this at all. What the graphs show and what I "felt" with driving both engines were two different things. This is my opinion of course. Everyone will feel the torque differently I guess.

Does it really matter if your truck is a half second quicker than the other?

I like the log pull, daytona, and torture test, but the drag racing is for kids...

The log pull daytona and the torture were great and really sold me. I just thought the drag was silly.

I think the point of the drag was to try and sway some of the die-hard V8 crowd with a direct comparison.

No. A torque curve will look the same at the wheels, obviously at a lower number, but it should be an almost identical line as the crank dyno.

I will probably purchase a EB in my next truck. I believe it will suit my needs better than the other options. The torture test isn't what sold me on the EB. I am still skeptical of "simulated mileage". I would have liked to known the actual mileage on the truck. I would have also liked to see maintenance records to see if there were any problems with the engine they had to correct during testing.

Those videos were all pretty cool, but I could give a rat's rear end about a drag race to see whose truck is faster off the line, in the 1/4 mile, etc. I may be getting old. Oh, and it was Homestead-Miami Speedway, not Daytona.
