Post I got me a new Truck
Decided it was time to get rid of the old '98 K1500 and get something new. I read a lot of good things about the new Ecoboost 3.5 from Ford so I found a used 2011 that I like and bought it. This truck is really nice to drive, and the motor pulls like a freight train. I have a tuner on order, already, from SSI. There are videos of these trucks running 13's on a tune only. Amazing!

Is bypassing the PCV and EGR type crap popular on the forums? The intake valves getting crap cakes on them because of the direct injection seems to be a common theme with the new DI motors, I'd imagine bypassing that crap would really help.

Eskimo, Lots of guys putting catch cans on these vehicles. I think using a good synthetic and top tier gas will help out with that, too. I plan on putting one on, as a preventative measure. I have a tune from SSI coming soon, and it should make it a 13 second 4x4. Tons of videos of guys running numbers on tune only. I couldn't believe it.

Schweet, you got the white one! Nice. I love the F150 in white, but couldn't find any in my price range. Love the truck, so far. That 3.5TT is no joke. You should look into SSi for a tune. They make some amazing numbers for an otherwise stock truck.

I've been looking at livernois or 5 star tuning. As far as carbon deposits on the back of valves it seems to be a rare situation. It has happened. And fords fix for it is to replace the heads as they are worried about ruining turbos doing a top end clean with chemicals. Its not anywhere close to being as bad as BMW and Audi.

I have read about a lot of unhappy guys with Livernois. The other problem with them is they are the only guys to not use SCT. Everyone else uses them, so if your unhappy you can pick up another tune. I will let you know how the SSI tunes work out.

Ultimately I'd like to have Ryan tune the truck but I don't think that's going to happen :/

Ummmmmmm.......I am not sure that is an option any longer, and won't be until a lot of changes happen. Unfortunately the tune on my Corvette isn't right from him, and will need to go elsewhere to be straightened out. It is a shame, they really had a good business there.
