Sounds like it's going to be the cross-plane sibling of the flat-plane 5.2-liter Voodoo V8.

NextGen Ford EBs >> EcoChargers?

thought this'd get lost in its own thread ^so...

CVT Might Be the Secret to Improving the Supercharger
R&T


Quieter than a Roots-type supercharger and cooler than any turbocharger, V-Charge spins between 10,000 and 100,000 rpm. The servo controller needs only 10 watts of electrical power to operate, so, unlike electrically powered superchargers, a 48-volt electrical system is not required.

Backed by the British government and in collaboration with both the University of Bath and the Ford Motor Company, Torotrak spent more than a year developing this booster. Instead of manufacturing it in-house, Torotrak would prefer to license its V-Charge technology either to a carmaker or some auto industry supplier.

I worry that Ford is misunderstanding the power the "5.0" badge carries...but I'm very curious about the upcoming engine(s)...!

As iconic as the 5.0 badge is I think the power is in making as much as reasonably possible in this hyper competitive sports car market.

This supercharger could go a long way to fixing the severe carbon problems of the Ecoboost engines.

Re: new v8 ... so SOON?

I should clarify a bit, when I mentioned slightly larger displacement, I really meant very slightly. It's advertised displacement will not change. A bit more bore diameter will help with less valve shrouding, and still maintain the coveted five point oh. Now, from that information, anyone with a small aptitude in engine building or knowledge, will understand why they would do that (cough...voodoo components....cough).

Oh, and there will be no FP crank in it.

But my point in mentioning this, was to clarify that the coyote is going nowhere.

Re: NextGen Ford EBs >> EcoChargers?

Carbon issues? Not exactly. The problem with all DI engines relates mostly to cam timing that draws back deposits into the intake runners during late intake valve closing (LIVC). This is known as reversion and causes the back side of the valve and general bowl area of the port to build up sludge. Boosting has nothing to do with it. Any DI engine can suffer from it, because there is no port fuel injector to clean that area. Ford is solving this with dual injection.


I do like the variable speed/boost charger though. I have heard about it, but have not read the details. Interesting concept. I am a big fan of SC, but for some reason turbo's are favored at Ford.

Re: NextGen Ford EBs >> EcoChargers?

Carbon.....PCV gunk.....deposits! I know boosting doesn't change that with DI engines, but at least you could clean the deposits without frying the turbos. Is it correct that the '17 3.5 EB is the only one with the dual injection so far?
