If it has SVC intercooler betting it had a tune at one time , unless you have a winch ? Could be just a defective piston that started coming apart , S.H.!.T happens . I know another 2019 raptor here in arizona broke front of his crankshaft last month , no tune. Only suspension mods. Engine replaced under warranty

Yes - you will find that the masses here do NOT change spark plugs at 100k miles.... or 50k miles.... with the awful history of the ecoboost and its bad reliability history, changing sparkplugs frequently is essential. This engine is fun.... BUT.... EXTREMELY finicky. This is exactly why to stay away from the ecoboost. Do Your Research. This engine has misfires galore... search that here and you will find a plethora of info that tells you about spark plug changes. We can't help that you bought an ecoboost, but we can tell you how to keep it running to sell it off. Definitely get out of it before it becomes a financial problem for you.

It is no different than any other turbocharged engine where people push boost and timing to get more power. 4.0L bi turbo AMG engines are just as hard on plugs. There is nothing inherently “wrong” with the ecoboost platform. Honestly, it is pretty amazing that a mass produced engine that doesn’t rely on exotic materials can produce as much power per liter as it does and remain reliable 99% of the time. Every engine has its own unique set of potential issues. For example, you can buy a Chevy and then go deal with lifter issues.

You are right, and this engine is hard on plugs. It is amazing that this engine makes the power it does. But, it just doesn’t do so reliably. You can see from 2017 until present that it is plagued by the same repeated design failures. Plus, these are carryover failures from the inception of the ecoboost over 10yrs ago. Ford is just happy to pay the warranty bill… which by the way has angered investors. To the point, you have seen ford management turn over twice, and recently repeated emphasis on what’s been happening is not working. Ford is going to gut the crap engineering to stop this silliness. I hope it can be built back into a reputable organization.

Everything in your post only exists in your warped little mind. You need to put down the keyboard and go eat the Easy Mac your mom just brought down to the basement for you.

On a more serious note, seek professional mental help.
