Ford Performance 3.5-liter EcoBoost



3.5L Ecoboost V6, F-150's been there done that, right? WRONG.

Yes it would be disingenuous to simply assume that the 3.5 Ecoboost V6 in the 2017 Raptor is simply the old 3.5 V6 with the wastegate screwed shut, Ford wiped the drawing board clean, working with two parameters, 3.5 litres, 6 cylinders. Turbos were a given.

From Road and Track:

Quote:
It starts with a new block, heads, pistons, and intake, plus bigger turbos. Ford adds a dual-injection system, a combination of port and direct fuel injection, like Subaru uses on the BRZ/FR-S motor. That makes the H.O. 3.5 the first and only EcoBoost engine to use port injection. Ford calls this a second-generation EcoBoost, so maybe that dual-injection scheme will spread to other engines.
Well and good, but the star of the show is called Anti-Lag:

Quote:
And then there's the anti-lag system. It's not a fuel-dumping system like on fire-spitting nutso rally cars, but we're told a lot of work went into the control systems to make sure manifold pressures stay up to keep the turbos spooled. They're not messing around here.
And that friends, is called product development...

Great insight on the officially claimed, new ecoboost engine. With the sort of things it has to live up to, replacing a V8, things like these had to happen, just imagine if they didn't.

I really don't mind. Some people have become uppity feeling like the Raptor has betrayed them by going 'eco friendly'...not for anything, but its making more power now...

They just hate the idea of a truck like this getting a V6 and not staying with 8 cylinders, even when it comes to looking at specs and doing a side to side comparison, those V8 bro's will still be pissed.
