    All I'll say is there is good and bad in all motors lol I've seen Eco's with over 100,000 miles with no issues and I've experienced a blown motor at 24,000. However I had been running a strong tune before for almost 2500 miles with no issues then when I returned to stock she sucked water out of the CAC. Most ecoboosters recommend drilling a small hole in the CAC so water can be blown out

    I loved my '11 while I had it. Only issue I had was a shudder in a heavy rain storm. Only happened once tho.

    Check your spark plug gaps. Maybe change em out. Sp534s work the best. Gapped to 0.028-30 ish

    I have a 2012 60,000 kms & have it slightly modded. No big issues for moi

    My oil cooler has started pissing oil at 45000 km. It's a 2014, and up until now, I've been very pleased with her. Hopefully my warranty covers the repairs.
