1ST TIME HAPPENED WHEN TRYING TO PASS A BIG TRUCK, PICK UP LOST ENGINE POWER DURING ACCELERATION THAT I BARELY MADE IT, OPPOSITE TRAFFIC COMING, VEHICLE LOST ALL CHANCES TO MADE ON TIME I WAS AFRAID NOT TO PASS ON TIME THIS IS A HAZARD ISSUE IF IT HAPPENS AGAIN, I HAD TO STOP AND SHUT DOWN VEHICLE BECAUSE I HAD A ENGINE CHECK MASSAGE AT THE MAIN SCREEN OF DASHBOARD WITH THE WRENCH CHARACTER IMAGE, AFTER I RESTART VEHICLE EVERYTHING WAS NORMAL. 2ND TIME HAPPEN WHEN MADE TRIP TO TEXAS ON DECEMBER 2013, WHEN TRYING TO ENTER FREEWAY I HAD TO SPEED UP AND SUDDENLY PICK UP AGAIN LOST POWER AND START SHAKING I COULD NO GAIN ANY MORE SPEED OVER 50-55 MPH I ALMOST GOT REAR END IT BY A CAR ON THE BACK THAT WAS ALREADY IN THE HIGH SPEED STREAM. THIS TIME THE CHECK ENGINE CAME ON, ;LATER STARTED TO DRIVE OK. WHEN I CAME BACK TO HOME TOWN I TOOK VEHICLE TO CHECK THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT AT AUTOZONE AND RETRIEVE THE P0430 CODE. I TOOK VEHICLE TO DEALER BECAUSE STILL UNDER WARRANTY AND EXPLAIN EVERYTHING. THEY CHECK VEHICLE AND RETRIEVE THE SAME CODE , THEY REPLACED ONLY THE DRIVER SIDE CATALYTIC CONVERTER. I WAS RESEARCHING ON FORUMS AND THEY COMMONLY HAVE TO REPLACE NOT ONLY CAT BUT HAVE TO CHANGE INTERCOOLER, CHANGE PLUGS AND RE-FLASH ECU AND OR PLACE A DEFLECTION PLATE ON CURRENT INTERCOOLER BUT HOME TOWN DEALER ONLY REPLACE CAT, I DON'T THINK THIS WILL FIX ISSUE. PLEASE PUSH FORD TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE, FOR EXPERIENCE THIS NEEDS TO BE CLASSIFIED AS A RECALL BECAUSE SAFETY ISSUE IS INVOLVED WHEN YOU LOST POWER WHEN IS NEED IT. THE ACTUAL INTERCOOLER ON PRE 2013 IS NOT GOOD BECAUSE TENDS TO ACCUMULATE CONDENSATION AND THIS IS SUCKED UNDER BOOST CONDITION AND PROBABLY CAUSING MULTIPLE MISFIRES THAT LEADS TO UNEXPECTED POWER LOST AND VEHICLE SHAKING. MY WIFE AND I BOUGHT THIS F150 NEW ON 2012 ECOOBOST ENGINE RE GREAT BUT THIS ISSUE NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED.
