    Those numbers might also correlate to it being the #1 seller for Ford. I also agree that I would rather the 6.2 Raptor for now. Might be interesting to see the 7.3 in a few years though.....

    Like I said, not against it, Iíd just need to see it work for a long time before I jumped in.
    Iím with Dakota, the future will be interesting to watch, from my 6.2 Raptor!
    Or a LS powered centurion if the raptor ever starts acting up. Lmao
    Not surprised Ford makes him the most money, they are the most common half ton trucks in the country. More trucks equals more trucks getting worked on.

    Iím not saying it canít be done, Iíd just need to see it work for a few years before I bought into it. Youíd have so many water lines running thru the boat to keep everything cool, I feel like packaging would be an issue.
    Iím all for ways to save gas as much surfing as we do, and I have no doubt this is where the industry is headed. I just wish boat makers would stop following automotive trends. Build a boat that works and people will buy it.
    Theyíve been using water cooled exhaust turbines on marine diesel engines for years. I donít think it will a problem. Iím still not a fan on the eco boost motor for many reasons. Itís all about low-end torque.

    Not a fan of the ecoboost because its all about low end torque? That's something you don't hear every day.

    The 3.5EB makes peak torque at 2250rpm and has a broad flat torque curve. This is a byproduct of tiny twin snails.

    Most guys trying to make BIG horsepower say in a V8 application opt for 64mm+ twin turbos and those suck for low end torque

    I had 185k on my 3.5 (with a light tune) when I sold it. I was impressed with the power from that motor, but not the fuel economy. That said, I have driven the smaller EB motor and it makes sense it’s going in a jet drive.
