I wonder if TCI would be interested in producing a SFI Flexplate for our platform. I wonder if we share the same flexplate with the F150 crowd. I did a quick search on TCI's website and didnt see anything. That maybe a selling point.
I contacted TCI.

They stated quite clearly "not interested".

Intersting. I would think with more EB 3.5's making more and more power they would at least look into it.

I agree wholeheartedly, and was equally surprised by the near immediate dismissal.

Meh, not surprising for our platform. Even the older GEN owner's found the aftermarket support somewhat dismal and disappointing.

Always was. If the entire run of Taurus was ecoboost and purchased by a large number of enthusiasts then the wallets open up. For Ford products aftermarket is Mustang and trucks. Everything else is super niche with lots of begging.

Crazy question at this point in your build, but what would you expect the red line to be on this motor?

Odd question indeed.

No expectations and no idea.

We'll find that/this out once she goes to dyno.

That almost appears to be Vin Diesel climaxing within his driver's seat, with each 1k increase in RPM's.

Albeit in a slow, frame by frame manner.

Looks to be quiet a mess he made. That'll require some serious detailing and serious donning of PPE accordingly.

Now the most important question is, when will dyno be? :))) I am getting old here, hope it's in my lifetime :)

Ha! Well, I don't think anyone could've predicted the C19 pandemic and its profound effect on economies world wide.

All of which has effected parts and labor.

Besides, patience is a virtue. I've learned never to rush the artist when their mid throe of painting their masterpiece.

All in due time my friend.
