Which is faster? Ford Lightning or EcoBoost?


Recommended Posts

I would say close race HOWEVER... Would you run the Lightning in 4X4? (do they even come in 4x4?) I would think AWD in the SHO might give it a pretty good advantage at a Test and Tune' date=' where traction is usually mediocre at best...[/quote']

 

And no, no 4x4. Rear wheel drive short bed single cab. 10 mpg if your lucky.

I had an 01 Lightning which was stock...it was quick and I even took the chevy ss silverados when they came out. But I think we are overlooking a tranny issue here. The Lightning was a four speed auto, I dont know what comes in the new F150 Ecoboosts but I'm sure their better today. As far as the Lightning taking a SHO...stock vs stock...no way. The AWD will make sure that doesn't happen. I do miss my truck though and was bumed out when Ford didn't resurect it and instead went with the Raptor.

Fastest EcoBoost stock ran a 14.32@95 mph

 

I have the second fastest Eco stock mine ran a 14.37@96. 0-60 with a boosted launch in 4wd the Eco will smoke a lighting but the lighting will quickly run it down as they trap 100-101 stock. And it will beat it in the 1/4 by half a second. Tuned the margins become close quickly.

 

In the end the Eco vs lighting 1/8th mile about even but the lighting is faster up top. The way the Eco is tuned it runs out of breath up top. But it's a hole shot beast. The livernois Eco is the fastest tune only truck and it only traps in the 102-104 range but its 1/8 miles are in the 7.9s and has 1.7 60fts on stock tires in 4wd. These things are no joke boost launched

That is really fast indeed. 1.70s 60', my best is 1.80! And 7.9, my best is 7.78, but I finished the 1/4 mile in 12.09 at almost 118mph! I would surely be surprised if a F150 pickup would keep up with me that long... It would take me at least a 1/8 mile before I could pass him... These tuned EB F150 are truly beasts!
