I had a diesel, and got rid of it.
Here is a quote from pickuptrucks.com
The only opportunity Ford gave us to drive the 6.2 was in a drag-racing scenario with the F-150 Harley-Davidson truck, where we measured a zero to 60 mph time of 7.15 seconds – three-tenths of a second slower than the EcoBoost-powered F-150 FX2.
But 6 cyl direct injection turbo diesels have been around for how long? Grow up...

Not really, this is the first test i've seen where the 6.2 beat the ecoboost. But for a motor almost twice the size and with 51 more hp, it should be faster.

I had an 04 4wd lariat and put 110000 on it. Not one problem with it with the exception of a rear sliding window motor going out at 14k. It was the most reliable vehicle I ever owned. 70k... Ok...

If you think your going to get the same kind of reliability(especially after 160,000 miles) out of your Ecoboost than you would a cummins you got another thing coming. Its a wimpy gas engine compared to an industrial inline 6 that was built and designed for a life of work04 Cobra, Stiegemeier stage 5, 60#ers, Ford GT's in the tank

ford master tech here.
eb has some issues already. front timing covers leeking, vct sticking, on and on. front trans pump seal leeking, burns up trans. some is to be expected. most complain about loud engine noise due to the injectors firing off at 2,000 psi.
so far no 5.0's or 6.2's i have seen in the shop for any engine issues.
also, i would never own a 5.4 3v way too many problems with them, most are due to lack of maintence though. same with 6.0's(sold) Black 03 Cobra coupe

Diesels are fly by wire, I have no throttle body at all.
But i must agree it is BS that Diesel Gas cost more than premium fuel, it is ridiculous BUT I love my truck and would not trade it for gas at this point. Unless they come out with a Denalli with a blown 427 Vette motorCRAZY FROM THE HEAT WINDOW TINTING

That was actually closer than I thought for a stock to stock comparison...
But hands down if they were both tuned the eco boost world rock its world in a race...

What gears did each truck have? I'm surprised no one has brought that up. It is a huge factor in whether or not this race is a good comparison.

the bullydog is said to "feel faster" but no time slips yet or dyno numbers.
the fastlane tune was proven to be complete
5.0 trucks with bolt-ons are already in the 13s and getting similar mileage to eco trucks.

For the price of the Eco I would have expected a significant improvement in gas mileage. IMHO, another failed experiment of trying to get everyone to buy into this "green" technology which, again IMHO, is nothing more than a marketing ploy.
My 2011 Tundra with the 5.7L, 4wd, crewmax at 6320 lbs (with me in it) and a 3" leveling kit on the front averages 17.3 MPG with a near even mix of highway and surface streets. On long highway runs I'll touch 18 MPG regularly. Aside from leveling kit it's stock down to the filter.2013 STi - Stage II
