Well the '15 is now gone. 82.5k I never realized how much crap I have in my truck until I had to empty it to turn in. After seeing how much weight I pulled out it probably has something to do with my somewhat crappy mileage. But all told, no lifetime total. But one of my trip meters hadn't been reset for almost 1000 hours of runtime and showed an average of just under 14mpg. Considering the terrain I drive and the amount of time idling thats really not that bad.

I have to say after I emptied it, it did seem to have a bit more pep and the the suspension didn't feel so squishy :rofl:

Look forward to testing the new gen ecoboost with the 10 speed even if it is only for a few months before I leave. Be good research because it will probably be the generation I'll be looking at in a few years when it's time for a new truck.

Update on my Eco-Boost. I now have 146K miles and I got a low oil pressure warning light and chime when I come to an idle. I checked the oil and it was low. I think I have a leaky turbo seal. Now the fun of trying to figure out which turbo. Any ideas?

I’ve thought a lot about a pedal commander. Hoping it would help the issue I e had my truck in to the dealer many times for (sluggish hesitation on acceleration). I’ve also thought about just getting a good tune since most good ones also reprogram the tranny.

Update to my low oil pressure. My BIL who owns Lodder Auto in Bountiful told me to swap out my Oil Pressure Switch first. So far so good, hopefully that fixed it. He said these EcoBoosts are pretty bullet proof and most of the time he replaces timing cover gaskets. He did replace a turbo on one last week but it had way more miles than mine has. Fingers Crossed for me, a $14 part is way better than a $600 part.
