You know, I bet ya if they could have put in a few more spark plugs the engine might have been able to get out of it's own way. Maybe even make it up a hill in OD!

I think they pushed the diesel off to 2010. I think it's the greatest idea in the world, and can't understand why in the world they've waited this long. Nice 5.0L or so straight six with 275hp and 500+lb of torque, what a nice package for the big half tons they make nowadays.

I had an '04 5.4L 3v 2wd, it was pretty nice and had plenty of midrange, but it lacked for pure lowend (although a TON better then the old 5.8L). I averaged 16.5mpg in combined driving, it would be nice to average 20mpg combined and be able to pull 23-24 on the highway.

it may take them 3yrs to get it right though.4.0 sohc chain guides, 4.6l 5.4l cam phasers.ford could if they wanted to could build some serious dependable engines if they wanted to.they would cost to much money.

I think it's a great idea. I mean, they don't offer a gas engine with torque anymore, so a small diesel would be a great idea. With Fords trend of crazy prices of new bare bones trucks though, especially diesels, I don't know that it would sell as well as the 250 and 350 trucks with diesels. The price difference may not be that much.

I do think it's a good idea though. I've also read about guys doing 4BT and 6 BT swaps into older trucks. People are supposedly getting excellent MPG and decent towing performance with these small diesels in lighter duty trucks. So, maybe Ford is on to something if they can make it reliable.

that sounds great and all, but man, i cant see knocking the 4.6s and 5.4s, they do lack in the power depo if you ask me, but i have em coming to the shop all the time with 190k, 210, 160k, and even a few with 250k+ mileage!!! thats something the 5.0s and 5.8s didnt have much luck achieving... i just did the topend on a 160k 4.6 in a truck (horrible exuast leak melted burned 2 valves) and the cylinder walls still had the cross marks in them and zero. i mean zero ridge on the walls... sometimes i think that maybe ford made the odometer run faster to make the trucks appear to have more miles!!LOL
