    Here's fords torture test.

    I've been doing some research on the frame size of the ecoboost. It looks like it can fit "frame" wise in the same place any mondeo v6 would fit.

    Hoover is that a mountune engine? Think they use a jag based engine which has different heads that will allow upto 9000rpm! The ford heads don't flow as well.

    How about compound turbos? Say a nice big gt4202 paired up with the little stock turbos. Instant kick with lots of top end!

    i don't know. i did some research on wiki and found that only the name was changed from Ford to Jag.

    A racing version of this engine exists and is used on mini prototypes like the Juno SS3 V6. It is a 3.0 liter naturally aspirated non variable timing engines producing between 350 and 400 horsepower with a red line of around 8700 rpm. The engine has a 40 hour racing life span before it needs to be rebuilt with rings and bearings, and has proven very reliable and competitive. The engine has a Jaguar badge, and is branded as a Jaguar 3.0 liter V6 since it is built and mostly sold in the U.K.

    i've seen the ecoboost motor many times.
    so far, research shows that it should fit a transaxle set up.

    not sure about the gear box....

    Did you buy the Ford "pull-out" units that Rossion was advertising on line?. They had 3 3.5's for sale.

    Oh that's strange. I thought the uk guys had looked into it and found they where different heads that would need some new mounts and other bits (nothing major). Will try and dig up the thread. It was on pistonheads.

    Would love to see a noble revving out to these engine speeds. Would give much more headroom for bigger turbos. Would there be room with a fast back for the ITBs?
