1.6L EcoBoost development
Steve, with Matt from Turbo Technics have now run the first production turbo for our 350bhp spec 1.6L EcoBoost and as you can see from the graph, the results are even better producing 355bhp and 351lbft torque at 1.9Bar, still using a completely standard engine from Ford with only the addition of the dry sump system. You even see it produces 165lbft torque at 1700rpm.
Steve has spent another 2 days on the dyno at DTW Engines with the 1.6L EcoBoost testing the final pre-production version of our 350bhp spec turbo. which Turbo Technics completed for us. Steve has been developing the control strategies and software with MBE to allow the user to adjust the boost levels to suit track conditions, also to control the maximum torque level to limit the torque to reduce the stress on the transmission. It will be now possible to limit the power not only with adjustable boost settings but based on road speed as well and there will be up to 7 selectable options available.
