Ford EcoBoost V6 hits the dyno before hitting the track
Ford EcoBoost V6 hits the dyno before hitting the track

<a href="">Ford Racing</a> just <a href="">unveiled the Riley Daytona Prototype</a> that will make its racing in the <a href="">United SportsCar Racing Championship</a> <a href="">Rolex 24 at Daytona</a> in January, and now it has released a video showing development of twin-turbo 3.5-liter <a href="">EcoBoost</a> V6 that powers the car. Using the same block and heads that can be found on a production <a href="">Ford Taurus SHO</a>, this new racecar benefits from the collaboration between Ford Racing and <a href="">Ford</a> powertrain engineers.

While we still don't know what kind of power this engine is putting out, it has definitely gotten a workout at Ford's 17G dyno. This area deep within Ford allows the automaker's racing program to work hand-in-hand with production engine programs, which can be a benefit to racing operations and production cars alike. <a href="/2013/10/02/ford-ecoboost-v6-dyno-video/#continued">Scroll down</a> to hear a few people from Ford talk about the crosspollination between its racing and engine teams and watch the EcoBoost get red hot on the dyno.<p><a href="" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Ford EcoBoost V6 hits the dyno before hitting the track</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="">Ford EcoBoost V6 hits the dyno before hitting the track</a> originally appeared on <a href="">Autoblog</a> on Wed, 02 Oct 2013 19:00:00 EST.  Please see our <a href="/rss-term-of-use/">terms for use of feeds</a>.</p><h6 style="clear: both; padding: 8px 0 0 0; height: 2px; font-size: 1px; border: 0; margin: 0; padding: 0;"></h6><a href="" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent link to this entry">Permalink</a> | <a href="" title="Send this entry to a friend via email">Email this</a> | <a href="" title="View reader comments on this entry">Comments</a>[/html]
