Scotty, I own a 2016 ford F150 XL equipped with a 2.7 liter gdi engine. Is it possible to change the motor in my truck with a 5.0 liter naturally aspirated V8 and if so would I have to change the transmission also? Thanks in advance, Denny.

Here are some valuable tips on GDI/Turbo maintenance, if you are stuck with one:

You don't need to change the engine just use an additive to get rid of carbon build up. 100% unnecessary

Watched this yesterday. Any sane person who owns a GDI would heed Scotty, ditch it and get a normal engine. Nonturbo. NonGDI. Nonsupercharged. Nondiesel. Nonjazzedup. Watch. Ditch. Enjoy Life: GOOD GDI FILM: https://youtu.be/xrLNDgrIw3U

Not worth money or work, tank value of the truck, unless it's junk already.

Oh, Scotty, just a side bar, I am not having problems with my truck at this time but I do worry about dirty valves getting gunked up in the future because of the GDI. I figure changing the motor with a naturally aspirated engine at some point would be cheaper than buying a new truck.
