    If your truck isn't out of tune he is greatly mistaken!!

      I have both. Jeff is exactly right. Unless your Sy is a basket case it won't be a problem. They're like 15.0 trucks from the factory and the traction control will only make that worse on the street.

        If you race him, he can at least tow you home if you break something

                  I race with one of those on Wed nights. Brand new. (The alum body.) Although I'm not a Ford fan it's a nice truck. He's waiting for a chip but currently run's low 14s. He'll probably dip into the 13s when his chip gets here. Lot of performance there but no Syclone. I'd guess even a bone stock Sy could beat him but with a chip he might make a race out of it. Keep us posted.
                  If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem.

                      I hope you do decide to show him what's up. I'm at my buddy's now who eats/sleeps/breathes FORD. He just got done asking me how my typhoon is running and I told him it's good aside from me getting romped on this morning by a BMW street bike. Right away... Your truck is no way faster than a bike. This...that.. Ford.. Ford..Ford. Go for a eco boost kill.

                            The Ecoboosts are impressive but the poor things are hurling how much tonnage down the road?

                            Can you imagine what one would do in a mid-size (Dakota size) or compact truck (RIP Ranger )?
                            Yes, it'd be a tire-fryer but modern electronics/traction control could help.

                            I'm still a little baffled why Ford would go so hyper-techno on a TRUCK application.
                            Don't you all agree?
                            Folks will be singing the blues when those beauties start getting big miles on them and need major repairs (i.e.turbo's, engines need freshening or replacing, etc.) $$$$$

                              I agree with this. Ive been in the market for one of these trucks as I need a 4 door vehicle. I would rather have the V8 5.0 rather than have the v6 with the marginal better fuel economy. I think cost of repairs long term is going to significantly affect the resale value also.
