Yeah, the Ecoboost can cause problems......my buddy wasn't real happy when I had to gun it and he was in the back sitting on a boat chair

This little traffic stop was almost an impound due to speed



I was driving a little too spirited to deliver a bike to a customer , I was very lucky the officer had a sense of humor or it would have been impounded for a week.

They sell little bottles of leather repair and I advise to do this patch quickly! I've "always" had leather in my vehicles (this van will be first in...wow eons with cloth).

I have used the leather repair since the airlines put a dig in my wheel chair seat and reimbursed me for the repair. Then my first service dog dug a nail into a car seat... etc etc catch it early, glob it underneath the cut and press together/down and voila!

I keep hearing about the great pickup the eco boost has... I will appreciate it since I have driven sports cars or a v8 caddy... with great pickup. (NOTHING like thinking...rut roh there's going to be a problem here... and then punching it and you're no longer in the problem area. )

I am also still getting use to the big mirrors, so far so good. Haven't hit anything yet.


I went PowerStroke Diesel and couldn't be happier!! No matter what i put in it or tow, it doesn't break a sweat!!! Love the fact that the engine speed stays below 3500rpm.

That's because it's a dog above 3100 rpm. I like the engine too though. But the last time it was in the shop I had two different Ecoboost powered vehicles, an F-150 10-speed, and an Expedition 6-speed. Conclusion: That engine would get me in trouble if I had it in my van. And drain my wallet at the pump.

RIP Lemmy. Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
