Just a little more metallic in the blue paint and I would be calling it 'Bass Boat blue'. I like the blacked out look of the FX4 model...wish it came with black wheels too. I'm too cheap to buy new wheels when there is a nice set already on the truck...so maybe in a couple of years I'll add some black wheels.

Okay, complete newbie question, but why is the 5.0 nicknamed coyote?

Don't beat me up too bad, I was a Chevy guy until a week ago!

Howdy ya'll! Been here a couple years, mostly in the 73-79 section. Got myself and '11 STX 4X4 with (you guessed it) a Coyote.

Inherited my Dad's 2012 Mustang CS. We put in Coyote Hellion twin turbos. It has been in the shop more than not. Wwe finally thin we have found the issue: the injectors on the kit we not able to handle the performance. did anyone else have this problem?

5.0 vs 3.5

Hi Guys,

I am just starting my research on F-150s, I drive a 2001 and I think it is about time to upgrade to a new model. My son just purchased a 5.0 XLT F-150 and I was very impressed with how it drove. I was wanting some more insight on the performance of the 3.5L EcoBoost vs the 5.0? Kind of skeptical about the Turbos and their longevity. Any Thoughts? Towing isn't quite an issue, we have a few boats but nothing that either engine would have an issue with according to the specs.

Thanks!

How much power is the twin turbo suppose to produce with the engine, and how big are the injectors? If you go by the nominal BSFC of gasoline engines, each HP you generate needs about 1/2 lbs/hr of fuel.

So for the base engine rated at around 420 HP, it needs about 210 lbs/hr of fuel delivery to maintain that power. To provide some margin, maybe bump that up to about 240 lbs/hr. Divide by 8 cylinders, each injector needs to be able to deliver 30 lbs/hr. We can assume the Coyote engine is slightly more efficient, so may actually need a little less, but this is a good number to start with.

Now you add turbochargers to force more air into the engine in the attempt to generate more power. If you give it 1 atmosphere of boost (about 15 psi), you potentially double the power output, so you will need twice the fuel delivery rate.

1st Post for new member

Greetings all,

I have just purchased a 2011 F150 XLT with the 5.0. This truck is a cream puff with just over 83k on the odometer. The bedliner doesn't have so much as a scratch! The 5.0 is phenomenal - the power is smooth and (mostly) quiet and the mileage is a significant upgrade over what I've experienced with my 2000 F150 with the 5.4. I bought a 91 F150 with the 300" 6 cylinder, new, in 91; a 99 SuperDuty with the 7.3, new in 98 and a 97 F150 in mid 99 when a divorce made the SuperDuty a casualty. The 97 & 00 150's, the SuperDuty and my current ride are all super-cab 4wd.

I wanted to do a little reading on the new coyote iteration of the venerable 5.0 and have found a lot of good info in various forums.

I look forward to sharing whatever I may have to offer the group(s).

Tom
