I have been reading the post on GM EcoTec engines and was wondering why no one uses a Ford EcoBoost engine. Is there that much difference to make the GM better?

You REALLY need to watch this. I'm not a ford guy but this is an awesome machine they built.

I've often wondered this myself. I have a truck with an Ecoboost engine and it is impressive.

Impressive.. That's for sure.. Cylinders looked really good for that stress and the fuel economy was pretty shocking to skip the check point. Really impressed with that boat that has it mounted. Seeing what he is doing with that many people and the gas mileage.. Definitely a thought for later..
