Any one know? Is this 2012-FX4 guy for real or a poser? http://www.f150forum.com/f38/5...-hemi-182157/index6/ Says "he owns a very popular Ram forum".

That whole forum is BS, just went through about 7 pages and all anyone does is argue back and Forth, and no one made a good point until someone reiterated the question. Seems people are A. full of $hit or B. extremely biased and don't want to change. If your motor is going to blow a head gasket no tech is going to tell you "Oh ya that's what they do", you're out of your effing mind. People griping about the rear coil springs, when they provide a better ride quality and can still hold their own when you need to tow, the difference between the rear leaf spring and rear coil set up isn't that big of a difference really. And when you factor in a daily trip to Home Depot or a weekend trip with the boat, they'll both do the work just fine.

I would say it is probably BS, I can't imagine someone telling on himself in that manner.

Well for one the 5.0 is slow i smoked mustangs with the 5.0 easily, and that was before my upgrades. 2 my gf had the eddie bower edition ford explorer with the 5.0 in it, it was 4x4 too smoked that car as well. That was also before my upgrades. I beat upgraded fox body mustangs and they were supercharged and i was stock and 1000 lbs heavier. I have seen hemi rams beat those Ford trucks with ease. But i do think the turbo charged f150's are nice idea. I talked to a guy who was racing his and it was nice. He said he was getting great gas mileage. Although he did say he would prefer the hemi rams over his f150. I do think they are very biast and need to get there heads out there tush and get there own opinion, not go off of someone elses opinion.

Storytime; I think it the year before last I was at a 1/8 mile track and playing with the mustangs when a guy came in with a brand new ford truck 150 something and really was keen on racing me. I agreed and told him straight up the Ram was modified with stock heads and block. I didn't know how it would do so I made a seriou run, it was embrassing. I had turn on to the return road when he finally trapped. What a joke. He was mad and left shortly afterwards.

He said he owned a hemi truck in 01. That is proof he is lying and has no clue what he is talking about sense that is impossible.

I was thinking the same thing.... But i wasn't to sure if they had hemi rams in the years he said so i didn't want to say anything and look like an idiot....didn't they throw hemi's in the rams in 06? Isn't that when they came out with the 5.7L hemi and the 6.1L hemi as well for the srt's?
