She is in the shop...

Well due to puking all the coolant out of the bottle while running the hot damn tune and also just straight leaking coolant from somewhere in the front of the motor I took her in. I'm really thinking about dumping it and just getting an f150. I don't really need that much truck, although it is nice to have the capability when you do need it.

Somewhere in the front of your engine is possibly the radiator hoses. Seems to be a common occurence lately to the tube if about $600+ for both.

The puking could be a number of things. Running to hot, air in the system come to mind first.

The new F150 with the Eco Boost engine is pretty damn sweet. Had one as a loaner and was very impressed with it.

Your truck needs head gaskets? Did they say what caused them to blow?

Slap some ARP's/Elite Studs and an Elite EGR Delete w/ Wastegate and you'll be good to go!

I'd also put a Batmowheel in one of the turbos (can't remember which one) while it's apart, along with a blow off valve (cheap insurance). You'll have a bulletproof engine after that! And it's best to do it while it's apart, so there is no extreme labor charges!

Be careful with the 5.4 Triton, that motor also has its share of problems too..
