Could it be a V8 raptor
Would be cool! But I think you might just be storing the pot here. I think the option would be cool .many will think it's dated cuz it's a V8 and yadda yadda . I like my V8 in Gen 1 poverty raptor
Yes - I provided links to this same new info. The "ecoboost 4 life" possie was out in force poo poo'ing the idea because they don't want to take a bath on selling their 6 banger for this.
This will be the best thing to happen to the f150.
Once again, kid ignoramus just can’t provide actual proof, only stupidity.
The ecoboost really is the best engine choice for the Raptor.
We the #1 producer of oil in the world - every vehicle manufactured here should have a V8, because 'merica (and because gas is only a $1.90).
That’s a fair point.
What could go wrong? The markets never, ever correct.
Yeh a heavy ass iron block with pushrod archaic design, that’s gonna work out great
@Fender I'd take it. I like simplicity. But I'd also take a twin turbo in almost any engine size. Each has its pros and cons to almost everyone in different ways in there own eyes. Perty much if you like it run it. If you don't, well.. Don't! Life's oftly shorty.
The 7.3 might fit, but everything I've watched and read suggests its more of a diesel alternative than anything. Pushrod engines are typically lower revving and prioritize low end torque over HP. Then there's the weight. It's huge, made of iron and has thicker sidewalls. Doesn't sound like something made for a "baja truck"
