offshorefanatic We bought 4 of them back in 2014 for our fleet. All 4 had turbo issues at around the 100k mile mark.

txsmith1 2014 3.5L eco 4x4 w/ 71k miles and a catch can. Have not drilled into the intercooler. Only problem I’ve had is my A/C’s recirculation mode selector snapped off somehow and ended up in my blower. It was hard to not go with the V8 but after comparing numbers I went with the TT.

sea hunt 202 We have a 2014 with 30 000 miles runs great but when cruising at 40 mph there is always a rumble I guess it is wind noise as we have just now replaced the tires. But it is great vehicle and will do low 13's in the 1/4 mile fun to drive.

barronj I don't know how many miles later it would take but I put another 90K on it after the switch.

It never leaked again after that.
The reason it stopped leaking is because they form a gel when mixed. This will eventually stop up water passages and be a big mess.

I've had to replace the plugs AND BOTH TURBO's!!! All just after it hit around 110k miles.
Found coolant on driveway. Took to shop. They said water pump. 3 weeks later had another leak albeit smaller. Looked underneath and could see it coming from area of turbo on driver side. On passenger side found tiny traces up there too so it had started to leak just not enough to make it to the driveway

so freakin' ticked!! Trust my shop guy and he drives an f150 as well. He's said in all of the f150's he's only seen this twice!!

other than that I love it and tows boat well too

Go search up that shudder on the F150ecoboost.net forum link I posted.

TeamJefe 2013 with right at 200k miles. I used to have the shudder until I drilled a 1/32" hole in the intercooler. I am about to replace the spark plugs. The biggest issue I've had with the truck is the A/C compressor went out at 35K miles. It was covered by warranty though. I will replace it with another EcoBoost truck when it finally dies.

U-joints? transmission? Mine does not, sorry, but I don't tow much.
