      Just watched a video of some guy complaining about F150's and said he would never buy ford again. The issue seemed simply to resolve, curious what has been tried or if/how the issue has been resolved.

      The issue was water build up in the intercooler, which meant a quick jab at the throttle would send the engine into limp mode due to water ingestion.

      Why not put actuated dampers across the front face of the intercooler(s) to control discharge humidity.

      Basically the same as controlling outlet temp on the condenser of a refrigerant system to protect the compressor.

      Does the engine have atmospheric and/or combustion air humidistat(s)?
