FWIW: I purchased my 08 e150xl, 5.4l, with Quigley at 37,000miles for under $30k. It came with nice wheel/tire package, alum bumber w/Warn winch. Not a scratch on it. I bought sight unseen in Hawaii. I looked and looked for a comparable diesel.

One year later, no regrets. Yep, wish she was diesel but I tow a 20' toy hauler around AZ and cant complain too loudly.

I say buy it and start having fun.

Good point. Lots of stuff made for mustangs that will bolt right up to the V8. Some stuff will go into the V10, but not the real go-fast items like twin-screw superchargers.

Adding a programmer from 5-star, and a free flowing exhaust, will really wake up the 5.4L.

True, especially since the warranty, and possibly extended warranty if any, is up.

Re: E250 VAN 4x4 QUIGLEY

I've been driving a 5.4 since 2008 and I have never found I needed more power climbing over 4x4 trails. I have also occasionally towed vehicles in the 5,000lbs range with my van. Your not going to pass sports cars going uphill with a 5.4 but nobody should be cruising at 80 when towing anyway. I also like the ability to pull into any out of the way gas station in any mountain town and the mechanic knows what 5.4 looks like. Just my 2 cents.

Re: E250 VAN 4x4 QUIGLEY

The biggest downside that piggybacks with the 5.4L, might be that it comes with the 4R100 four speed transmission, rather than the 5R110 five speed transmission.

Re: E250 VAN 4x4 QUIGLEY

If I've resurrected a thread, that for the most part has been exhausted, my bad.

My new van is a 5.4L, 2011 E250. When I picked it up, it had 65 miles on the odometer. This was not a special order, Ford in Cannon City, CO had it listed for months before I made an offer. Seems a CO ski resort/hotel put the order in, then renig'd on the deal due in part to poor snow conditions this year.

Did all the paper work by email, print, sign, scan, and email back. With the great reputation of a Quigley converion I bought it unseen and not test driven.

Prior to this purchase, my everyday driving vehicle was a Ford 7.3L Diesel, F350 work horse. In under ten years I put 500,000 miles on that motor. It performed well in all conditions and in all seasons. Work for me was cellular tower construction, OSP, fiber cable, etc. Towing a trailer with tools and equipment was not uncommon. I make mention of this because choosing to go gasser was an easy decision to make, its a 5.4L, ease of work and availabilty of parts.

Now I look forward to driving and working in comfort with a rig full of toys, rods/reels and I hope a mountain/river scene out the front window.
