Chipped 7.3 against a ecoboost

Will a chipped and intake equipped 7.3 beat a loaded out stock 4x4 Ecoboost? Got a son that I want to put in his place.

I dont think so....i have a 7.3 with tunes, exhaust and intake and i cant beat my other halfs Edge, and its not even an Ecoboost motor. I have heard those new Ecoboost trucks are fast.

Just an intake and electronics, the EcoBoost F150 has the power-to-wieght advantage big time. Couldn't call it much of a match.

The stock EcoBoost is pulling 365HP/420TQ out of the factory, and a curb weight of ~5500-5800#, with a 6sp transmission. I've test drove 2 when the wife was looking for a newer truck. Those trucks are the best 1/2 ton powertrain I've ever seen, even though its only a V-6. The old 7.3L was of a different era and even if you get close to the power on the 7.3L, the weight and transmission will lose out to the new truck.

Yeah they're faster than a 6.0 with an sct/exhaust/intake/ficm tune. Surprised me.
