Here's an LSA dyno, I don't know that the GM crate motor LSA uses the same cam that the marine mfr's were using but you can see why a tow boat would pick the Raptor 6.2L over this. Look how long it takes to build the torque.

Here's a dyno of a roush supercharged Raptor truck. This is at the wheels so not the same as the dyno chart above but you can see the torque curve

Perfect! I'm guessing the old Chevy 6.0's graph looks similar to the 5.0. Even if it looked the EB, you can see why the EB wins @ 2,000 rpm, especially when you cut the NA engine's output down by ~35-40% at altitude. Interesting how the 6.2L ha...

We need a fancy graph overlay of the Ecoboost and 6.2L raptor and 6.2L Chevy to show the torque at various rpm's. I'm sure someone can find that...

[QUOTE=alans;1903247]My Eco has 3.73's. my 2500HD had 4.10's. My chevy had the final drive advantage, especially in 3rd gear. They may be goofy, but check out the video of these guys comparing the new Chevy 6.2 against the ecoboost on the drive...

What's the final drive ratio of 6th gear in the Ford vs 4th gear in the Chevy? The Chevy can't do it at 2,000 rpm, it didn't have enough torque at that RPM to do so whereas the Ecoboost does. Eisenhowser tunnel is 12,000' of altitude, HP Loss = ...

[QUOTE=alans;1903238]When I tow boats, sled trailer, or my travel trailer though the Eisenhower tunnel, my ecoboost chugs along casually at 70 mph at 2,000 rpm in 5th or 6th gear, while my old 6.0 V8 Chevy was screaming at 5,000 rpm in 3rd unable ...
