Ecoboost....Ford's new twin turbo engine revealed!

Ford has revealed a new twin turbo engine! The engine spec in short

3.5 V6 340hp 340lb-ft.

I don't care what people say about ford's reliability, I won't jump to any conclusion about it, until real reviews come out. Could be a winner.

Anyway here's the article by autoblog.

http://www.autoblog.com/2008/01/09/v...dilac-and-bmw/


And here's a video of a Ford Taurus equipped with a ecoboost engine, racing a BMW 3 series and STS.

Just fast forward to 6:54 seconds. It doesn't sound that bad

Damn, with minor mods, this thing can be a beast

lol, interesting. Not sure how about the reliability, but imagine this engine in a taurus.

By the way, don't think too much about that race. Was it a 328 or 335? What kind of Cadillac was that?

Guess everyones going TT these days.

Good for Ford and good for Ford stock

Every hick in the south is going to have a TT engine now. Jesus. I can already see the General Lee numbers on taurus's.

Great point by the way. Overseas fords arent made in the states.

Is it really that bad??? ....Anyway, I said this engine could be a winner ....COULD....!

The reliability issues over here don't favour Ford either....So Ford ain't doing good globally.

+1. Either 330i/335i with sports package. My guess is the former because it barely outran that STS.
