These load rating, are the J2807 rated?

One cylinder in that test had a 13% loss on the leak down test.

These are a couple of comments that were posted on MrKong's link regarding the 13% leakdown test...not mine for what they are worth.

"For the individuals that think 13% is a big problem for what this engine has seen need to get a little training in the matter. The average use engine on the road with that same miles would have a very similar wear state (if not more), and they wouldn't have seen the abuse. I used to be part of a race prep team and you would never think about sending a motor back out for competion with even a fraction of this abuse, because of the wear from the excessive loads."

"@ BigBob. 13% LEAKDOWN in one cylinder, not compression loss. Two very different things. Leakdown being measured by pressurizing the cylinders with nitrogen and measuring the leakage past the seals (valve seats, piston rings) and measured in % of N2 that escaped. Compression obviously being cranking compression measured in psi which they didn't state."

Once again, these were the comments of others, not me. I don't have a racing background or anything like that.

Me either but after reading the whole article, I ask myself: "yeah, so?"

Sounds like this particular engine was put through more torture than any of us would ever see in a lifetime.

Not trying to bash, but just posting facts. Either way, the test was done by Ford, and not an independent company. I like Ford as much as the next guy, but I do like facts.

Enjoy your new EB, such a great truck. Just make sure and give it 1000 mile break in before towing.

Have fun with your new EcoBoost Quahog. Should be a great TV.

Thanks, Bill... I've been without a truck now for about 5 weeks and pretty much going nuts. The DW is not happy that I keep piling tools into the back of her MDX so I can go work on the trailer. Haha

Sounds great, but now that I've towed with a Duramax LML diesel, I doubt I could ever go back to a gasser.

I towed across the US with an 8.1 ltr in a 2500 Suburban, and I thought it was great. Even that beast of a gas engine does not hold a candle to the torque of my current diesel.
