Mike Levine that now is employed by Ford wrote this article in 2009 as a prediction of the new EcoBoost that was slated to arrive 2016. By an Ethanolinjection, E85, Ford can rise the octane of regular fuels 88-91 to the maximum 130 octane. This leads to improved efficency, less fuel is needed and more power will be the result. The peak combustion pressure will rise from 17 Bar to around 30 Bar and this requires CGI in the block, just like the BobCat had.
The new 3.5L V6 will have a stunning power far over 411 hp.
at page 11 the block material, CGI, same as the 2.7L EcoBoost and the 6.7L PowerStroke
Mike Levines Twitter
were he reveals the dual injection systems.
"Sounds familiar! :-)"
I might be wrong as I am not a technician. I just found a similarity between the new EcoBoost and the Bobcat project that was intended to be in production 2016. I think that the new GT-engine isnīt out yet. It will come late this year.
