You guys see this eco boost article?

What the Inside of a Tortured Ford EcoBoost V-6 Looks Like - PickupTrucks.com News

I suspect it's posted elsewhere on this forum, but I thought some may have missed it. Pretty impressive!

I'll be interested to see how the Explorer version does... If all goes well, I might actually purchase one even though my previous 2 Explorers ('02/'04) were piles of crap! heh...

Well, I guess I won't be getting the eco boost in a new Explorer, only available in FWD per the following article. Wifey needs AWD for winter conditions! Lame.

The difference is likely due to the fact that the EcoBoost engine is only available with front-wheel drive, while the V6 is offered with either front- or all-wheel drive.

Why was everyone bitching about 13% compression loss? If it's within 10% of the rest of the cylinders, it's good, but after all this abuse 13% is too much? Humph...

Very interesting article. Reading the comments is always a laugh.

From the article.
"A leakdown test was performed to measure how well the engine’s 24 intake and exhaust valves and piston rings were still able to seal the cylinders. One cylinder was found to have a cautionary 13 percent air loss past the combustion chamber’s seals, while all other cylinders were acceptable with single digits of air leakage."

So far the EB engines are impressive I just think they will be a money hole for guys like me who keep vehicles over an extended period of time. I guess time will tell.

Yeah, I read that wrong in the comments.

And it was still able on the dyno to produce within 1HP of it's advertised peak, and exactly the same torque.

I wonder what it did when it was brand-new and properly broken in, exceeded the specs?

jsimon724 is starting off with a positive reputation.
Article stated that the engine was run for 300 hours on a dyno, then stated that it was equivalent to 150,000 miles. So how do they come up with that figure? 150,000miles/300hours=500mph avg. I understand that it's not actually in a truck and I guess they're running that thing wide open?? Still 150,000 mile equivalent seems high.

Probably not. A recent Consumer Reports tested an initial year Prius and then compared it against the original test they did 10 years ago (I think it was 10 years). It tested nearly exactly the same. That seems to show that at least with the Prius, it simply didn't wear much in all that time.

Its a publicity stunt. Ford is trying to get people all excited to run out and buy one. My gut tells me after 10 years and 150k miles the 3.5l EB will not fare as well as in the test.

As I said earlier the EB engines make impressive power however for my money I'll spend less on the less complex 6.2l and still get great power and decent mpg.
