  • ford 5.4 triton vs chevy 5.3 vortec?

    one of my friend has a for quad cab 5.4 v8 triton and i was wondering if it would out run a 5.3 1500 ext? he only has a small amount of miles on it so it isnt completely broke in yet but when it is fully broken in which do you think would win in a drag race... say 0-60?

    5.3 hands down IMO. From what I've read the fords fall flat on their faces once they hit any kind of higher rpm's.

      well the 5.3 is rated at 285 HP...what is the Triton?? Some kid said he new the Nissan Titan 5.6L would smoke my 5.3L.....I think he might be right....

        I was thinking the ford is advertised at like 305 or something like that. Their torque curve is what kills them unless they've changed it. When the new F150's first came out they bragged about how great it is becaues 80% of the engines torque was made under 1000 rpms. Thats fine for towing but you've got to have torque to push that brick through the air too. Not sure on the Titan. Going by looks I don't see any way in the world the titan could be even remotely fast.

          Heh heh, yeah, looks surely wouldn't give it away, but the Titan is pretty quick... I have a brand-new '05 Silverado with the 5.3L and a friend has the Titan. He let me drive it and the thing has good acceleration. Off the line, I'd say the Titan probably edges out the 5.3, but I don't know about higher speeds. The Titan engine is a 5.6L rated at I think 304 HP. However, my friend tells me Nissan underrated the engine as people have dynoed the trucks and gotten higher numbers.

            uh yeah it would... my dad has a titian... it runs like no other... his isnt broke in real good and it still runs good through the gears... i mean 1-2-3 pulls better than you think.

                my dad had an armada for a short time. it had the 5.6 with 305 hp and it was pretty fast. it felt like 4.10 gears plus it had a 5 speed transmission, that helped. it got horrible gas mileage tho, around 10 mpg. nissan put bad breaks on them though. the rotors warped in 3000 miles and the guy at the nissan dealership said the problem was "the japanese invented this big suv with a heavy v8 and kept Sentra brakes on it" my dad traded it in for a acura tl and a '01 f150 (i gave him crap of that **** but he did it for the price). the f150 has a 4.6 and my 4.8 does circles around it. seriously, i destroy it. but the armada would have me.

                  I think the chevy would win hands down!

                  My buddy has an 04 Ford with the 5.4 and i'll tell you i think those 300 hp get lost somewhere between the engine and the tires. My 05 5.3 aluminum block (305HP) feels a hell of alot faster (judgeing by my ass-O-meter) i haven't had a chance to blow his doors off yet but im pretty sure i would, i think my old 4.3 s-10 ZR2 would have givin him a run for his money when she was at her best :bowtie:

                  As far as the Nissans go Motor Trend says that 5.6 is pretty much a beast and the factory HP #'s are underrated... they also say the Fords don't feel like 300 hp.

                  I think you'd win!!

                    i drove the 5.4 when i was going to trade my 4.8 in.
                    same trucks (ext cab, short bed, 4x4, offroad package)

                    the 5.4 sucked balls. i think my 4.8 would beat it. my friend was with me (ford guy) and he was like "uhh wtf"

                    i gave it back and went home. that sucked. I hear that V10 is a hotrod though. Pass anything but a gas station.

                    as far as 80% of torque below 1000 rpm, i think that means it makes 80% of peak torque below 1000. meaning if it was a 300ftlb engine, it makes 240ftlbs by 1000. not that 80% of the curve is below 1000. that would mean it wouldn't even rev to 1500rpm! that would be useless anyway. who the hell cruises at 900rpm? you would need semi-like torque to have gears that low and still move

                      i think the 5.3 wins that one. the ford is a much heavier truck, plus being a quad cab doesnt help. the titan is a different story. a friend of mine has an 04 crewcab titan. that thing is pretty quick and sounds pretty throaty stock. we kinda raced one time, well twice in the same span of highway. from like 55 on up we punched it the first time i got him, or was pulling away. the second time we were neck & neck him nosing ahead before we came up on traffic. oh lets face it all V-8's are fast except fords :pot:

                              Stupid imports, They cant make trucks worth ****, I doubt they will ever have the tried,tested and true factor that Chevy dodge and even ford have.... Plus keep in mind of the trucks in comparison the chevy 5.3 is the smallest of the bunch, (5.4 5.6 5.7)
