Every 4K, I switched to synthetic hi-milage at some point. My biggest problem was deer crashing into my truck. Pests.
No doubt a Charger is going to beat a pickup off the line, turbo lag has nothing to do with that!You won’t feel lag when you “gently” accelerate. It’s only when you “step on it” that the turbo lag really shows itself. All turbo’s have some lag. An extreme example, you’re sitting at a traffic light, idling, and a kid in a Charger next to you wants to race. You oblige and put your foot to the floor, trying to go from low rpms to high rpms. You’ll feel a very distinct hesitation and see the rear end of the Charger pulling away from you. Only after the EcoBoost turbo spools up will you feel a surge of power. The Charger is still going to easily walk away from your EcoBoost (if it’s in an F150) but at least you’re now accelerating at full rpms. My 2014, F150 had a worst than usual problem with hesitation when trying to pass or in any other situation when I needed power immediately.
Depends on the charger, the tune, and whether or not the driver can properly launch a rwd car with enough power to smoke the tires.A newer ecoboost F150 with a tune will walk away from a stock charger.
You would be surprised what a simple tune and e85 will do on those ecoboosts. 0-60 in under 5 seconds easily.Depends on the charger, the tune, and whether or not the driver can properly launch a rwd car with enough power to smoke the tires.
A stock ecoboost will have few tenths on a a stock 5.7 charger through at least 60mph. I'd bet the charger would catch it in the quarter though cause of the MUCH better power-to-weight ratio and aerodynamics.
It would take a lot of tuning on an ecoboost pickup to get it to walk a stock 6.4 or hellcat charger through 60mph, much less the quarter. And at that point it would probably be be way to hot to tow much at all or run for 200k miles without something blowing up.
