    '11 power steering ?

    The reservoir contains the system filter and therefore needs to be replaced any time a pump fails or the fluid is dirty/burnt/contaminated. If the reservoir is not replaced the new pump will fail.

    Raptor R vs TRX Drag Race

    I was thinking of posting this in the R section. The factory calibration is dialing back power as the truck approaches the 114MPH speed limiter, so it’s actually even faster than the numbers indicate. Which is incredible. “Given its massive 700-pound weight advantage, we expected the 6077-pound...

    GEN 1 6.2 Power Steering Madness

    The reservoir contains the system filter; it needs to be replaced whenever there is a failure of any component. If the reservoir is not replaced there will be repeat pump failures.

    Interesting Oil Leak

    That’s your high pressure pump. It’s possible the pump to valve cover gasket is leaking, but it should be cleaned up first and re-evaluated to determine.

    Radiator leak

    Liquid stop leaks are for beaters, don’t put that in your cooling system. It rarely stops leaks and just ends up clogging the system. Time for a replacement radiator.

    2018 cruise issue

    B2B is only 3yr/36k…even if it was purchased at the end of 2018 or early 2019 as a leftover, it would still be out by time. As far as the cruise control, does the truck have adaptive cruise? If so, the system needs to be recalibrated any time the cruise control module is the front bumper is...

    Raptor R vs TRX Drag Race

    Not SVT specific. Not sure about expediency, but it was the same engine available in other F-150 models.

    Personally haven’t heard it myself, but I’ll take your word for it as you always seem to be straightforward and rational.

    Perhaps you have forgotten that you posted an entire thread with an opinion poll calling me out on well known and widely available facts?

    Raptor R vs TRX Drag Race

    It all comes back full circle. What was the engine designed for? What was its intended use? What applications was it implemented in? The LS7 is obvious; it was engineered from the start to be the ultimate N/A LS for the Corvette, specifically the Z06. The C6 was already impressive enough but...

    High mileage owners please check in

    Honestly that’s really not bad considering the labor hours involved. Just be sure that only Ford/Motorcraft parts are used.

    Raptor R vs TRX Drag Race

    That about sums it up. “It was the best we had”. And that’s not saying much. Bolt-ons produce little to no gains and it actually loses power with H/C “upgrades”. Who would have ever predicted that could happen on a SOHC cast iron engine designed to power an E-Series. You were “turning heads...

    High mileage owners please check in

    Wow impressive mileage! The plunger you mention is the hydraulic lash adjuster. The 6.2 valvetrain is somewhat unique in that it has shaft mount rockers with a lash adjuster between the rocker arm and valve tip. In your case, the lash adjuster failed hydraulically or got stuck, causing...

    Clunking sound on Gen 3 too

    It’s not a recall because it’s not safety issue, and not every truck before the build date will have the issue. That is why the dealer needs to use chassis ears to isolate the causal shock(s) per the Service Message.

    Clunking sound on Gen 3 too

    Build date cutoff was 6/16/22.

    Raptor R vs TRX Drag Race

    Unfortunately Ford Authority is a terrible source. That site is full of misinformation. They merged the Gen 1 and 2 engines into one article without differentiating between each.

    Raptor R vs TRX Drag Race

    The Second Generation 3.5 is unrelated to the Duratec or “D35”, Gen 1 3.5 was a derivative of that engine. It was an all new design in 2017. The Raptor shares approximately 60% of its parts with Ford GT. The rumor that it’s related to the old Duratec engines was started by some cavemen...

    Raptor R vs TRX Drag Race

    To clarify, I’m saying it’s not a completely different engine. It’s based on the second gen 3.5.

    Raptor R vs TRX Drag Race

    Completely different engine, no. It’s a high performance derivative based on the second generation 3.5.

    Raptor R vs TRX Drag Race

    The HO has a different compression ratio, pistons, turbochargers, calibration, charge air cooler, exhaust manifolds, catalytic converters, fuel pump, and exhaust system.

    GEN 1 Can any one believe that fordtechone.....

    I can’t believe how childish downforce 137 is. Does he not know how to use the internet outside of this forum? This information is available from plenty of sources. I’ve explained the same thing over and over but he still doesn’t get it. I’ll post the same thing I posted in the other thread...

    Raptor R vs TRX Drag Race

    If it was made for the Raptor it would have been the standard engine when the truck was first available. The 6.2 was developed for Super Duty as a replacement for the previous base engine, which was the 5.4 3V. The 6.2 in F-150 had different cams than the Super Duty version. You could get the...

    Raptor R vs TRX Drag Race

    Wrong, again, as always. The G1 Raptor debuted with the 5.4. 3V. The 6.2 was never unique to Raptor. It was the same engine you could get right down to an XL fleet truck. Why do you keep posting when you have no idea what you’re talking about?

    Raptor R vs TRX Drag Race

    I honestly don’t even know what to say. You kept bringing up “intelligence” and as much as I tried to be nice, I think you were right. You’re a lost cause.
