Ford Racing New 2.3L Ecobeast Engine, 600+ HP
Marken Performance



Ford hasn’t said how much horsepower the 2.3L EcoBeast is good for, but we’d wager it’s going to be well over the 600-700 range. The 2.3-liter EcoBeast is part # M6009-23EB and will be available in the spring of 2016.

“It’s only that we have the production engines, the next step is to take it to the next level,” says Ford’s Mike Delahanty. The EcoBeast has the bore bridge saw-cut eliminate to strengthen the block’s deck area. Then there are cross-drilled cylinder cooling passages below the deck bridge. The cylinders are fully honed to OEM specifications, and the setup uses a Livernois Motorsports coolant jacket and deck reinforcement insert.

“This is for enthusiasts who want to make big power with a lot of boost,” says Delahanty. The work doesn’t stop there, with the EcoBeast also receiving Mahle forged pistons good for 9.5:1 compression ratio, Manley Forged rods with ARP2000 rod bolts, and ARP main beam studs in place of bolts for increased thread engagement and strength.

What an awesome engine to put into one of the old British roadsters! Imagine updating an old Spitfire with updated suspension and tires along with 400+HP 2.3EB!! Talk about a sleeper, it would be a monster killer!!!!

Good things can come in 'little' packages.
This was done before Kent 1.7, Zakspeed,
and as for roadsters
How about a Jensen-Healey
out goes sthe 140 HP '907' and
in goes the 600 (No) how about 400 hp
Now here is a nice engine for the new
LincStang. Power, Light Weight and WOW

Throw this engine in the new Lincoln sedan and call it the ContiMental!

This goes a long way towards eliminating my utter distaste for the 2.3 EB as a modified performance engine.

The only current application for performance factory 2.3L is the Focus RS. I find that quite tasteful. Mustang 2.3L is not a performance application, biased also for fuel economy.

This dealer is making a name for themselves with hot rodding Ford vehicles. His latest is a 550hp EcoBoost Mustang for $32,995.
