    3.5 ecoboost - they used a gen 1 to win le mans

    Sho has forged rods and billet main caps. Forged however is a very loosely used term when it comes to oem components.

    Pennzoil Ultra Platinum

    Very interesting findings. I've used Motorcraft 5w-50 full synthetic in all 4 of my Fords I have had. Seems to hold up well to my abusive driving habits.

    3.5 ecoboost - they used a gen 1 to win le mans

    Your probably not wrong, i mean Factory they are supposed to rev to 6800 and still make power (n/a 3.5). I do know the 3.5 in the trucks 11-16 years all had 9.49mm of lift on the cams and we have 9.0mm on ours. not a huge difference but some. the tiny turbos are terrible on these cars. even the...

    Yet another PTU thread...some history

    Or we could sit here happily with our oem PTU and be fine if we maintain if, For the most part that is.

    Haha I mean ford literally handed ken block one of these for his truck... so like we all go to ford hq disguised as ken block and we should be good to go nab a few of these lol

    3.5 ecoboost - they used a gen 1 to win le mans

    Your absolutely right, low rpm torque is a killer! With the Toyota platform I have as a project car everyone goes high rpm and big turbochargers to make good power without cracking blocks and such.

    3.5 ecoboost - they used a gen 1 to win le mans

    I figured , when they started building the engine it had our style of vct before they switched to regular old sprockets for the cams !

    3.5 ecoboost - they used a gen 1 to win le mans

    After watching a youtube documentary about the process ford took to win the 2016 le mans with the ford gt, i found it quite satisfying to see that the ecoboost in it was actually a heavily modified gen 1 engine, with a oem engine block and head casting. it appears that they removed the variable...

    Yet another PTU thread...some history

    I like your thinking on how a cooler would affect the ptu being that it is a vented set-up. In all honesty I have not looked into what aftermarket setups would be suitable to use a feature like that. i would think a tradition cooler meant for a differential would be okay, given that they are...

    Yet another PTU thread...some history

    I find it quite interesting that many people have mentioned in the past that the PTU and RDU (Essentially the awd entirely) is the weak point of the SHO, those who have found out the hard way have found its generally the transmission. Regardless it is great that someone is trying to produce some...
