2015 test drive
#21
the eco boosts are pretty fun, I just upgraded a turbo on one in the shop this week. waiting on an intercooler and I can button it up. It will prob max the direct injection since there is not really any options to put more fuel in the motor unless you run a second set of injectors.

I'm still enjoying it. They're really fun cars to drive. We're at that time of year when there are not many students on campus and so I'm switching between the two.

I'm just now starting to think about mods. I spend most of my time and $$ on the old one. [Image: 01aeb3e25f2cf814f7224a8b4844e587.jpg]

Well it WAS fun to drive. A punk ran a red light and this is what happened. [Image: 6e8d4033dd01c1348f5839773e02cf91.jpg]

Probably totaled. Waiting for the adjuster to come out, but it'll be close.

A lady I worked with said, "well at least it wasn't your girlfriend " meaning the 71. True... I would probably be in a psyc ward.

Totalled? But it looks very repairable. Surely it will be fixed out of insurance?

Quick answer is yes it is repairable but they base it on repair costs to cash value.

Waiting for the adjuster to come out but the estimate from the shop (same one I use for the 71) is just shy of 12k. That's 73% of its total value and so it will be close.

Wow, glad everyone ok. What did it do twist the chassis and move it to drivers side? Did it blow air bags they get expensive. I fixed my 20th. ann when X pulled in front of a Cadillac and it was moved 4" to the left. If they do total see what the insurance company will let you have it for. I need a daily driver and been watching insurance yard here.
Was also looking at the old part of post. My son and I went to get him a new F-150 Super Crew a few months ago. When we looked at and drove the Eco Boost the sticker said same mileage as the V-8 so we both agreed the V-8 was the better choice. The boost had 10 speed and 8 has 6 speed auto. We both felt the 8 was better. That is a truck not a car.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??
