    Blew as in put your mouth on it? How the fuck do you blow not one, but TWO turbos your first time out, and second day it came back with a new turbo. Sure it's possible, but has nothing to do with you and turbos.

    The more likely scenario is that the vehicle was a heap of shit.

    Take a pill Vin Diesel

    probably by planting foot on throttle at low RPM, as defined as below 1700 RPM

    I don’t know. Her explorer sport EcoBoost is pretty peppy. Ford covered it even out of warranty so I wouldn’t go as far as calling it a heap of shit. Good car for her, She loves it.

    Yeah, not sure why they changed it when you could also do a spoiler delete on the old EB PP.

    I live in a town without a local police force and plant my foot on the throttle every time I live my neighborhood.

    On our 3rd turbo in 7 years without a single incident.

    The explorer sport was out of warranty so the suv was 5 years old or more than 60k miles when you first drove it. So for the first 5 years or 60k miles her old BF's were unable to blow her turbo but Vin Diesel here blows it up not once but twice in 3 times behind the wheel.

    Ford graciously eats the cost of not one but two turbos because the warranty expired?

    It must be nice to be a big movie star.

    Lol, you guys are adorable, pinches checks.. obviously It was not meant to be a slam on ecoboosts (yes has 100k miles and a 16) since I followed it up with we're going to test drive One as potential replacement for my daily... just a funny story.

    You drive her Ecoboost 3 times, blow the turbo twice (the first and 3rd time you ever drove the Ecoboost), and Ford replaces the turbo on both occasions on a vehicle that has 100k miles? You're right, it does sound funny.

    He was probably Granny shifting, not double-clutching like you should.

    It would be impressive to see someone double clutch an automatic.

    I'm fairly sure that's what a transbrake is.

    Does it get to choose some times to be called a brake, and other times a clutch? Is there a process to transition itself from one mode to the other?

    Yeah, that's what a Granny shifter would say. You just grab that handle and bam bam! So long sucker.
