Yes its the timing chain cover, ford calls it front cover. Its leaking there and i have a coolant leak which had something to do with a fitting on the turbo. Both are covered under powertrain warranty. Thank goodness
Our fuel system can handle ethanol, just not e85 because it does not flow enough. The gas ring specifically says e0-e15. I think all new cars they have better components in the fuel systems to handle the ethanol......although millions of cars run on e10 and even a lot of performance guys run e85 in cars that came out before ethanol was around with no problems.
When you say strokers dont like boost. You are referring to a long stroke vs the bore size. Technically a 4.0l is not a long stroke motor, it is near 1to1 neutral bore to stroke. It will love boost just like the 3.5l. Porting the heads are pointless, you won't gain much because of forced induction. The 4.0 will only be worth roughly 40 to 60 hp over the 3.5 with same turbo setup. Yes, it might call for larger turbos. Yes, the fueling is the bigger problem
But that is nearly solved. My point is, why build a 3.5l bullet proof when I can build a 4.0 bullet proof. Actually super six doesn't even have the forged crank out yet. Mayne 6 more weeks. Just planning ahead. Again my question is, that nobody seems to know is... Does the 3.7l have bosses for the water and oil jackets needed for the turbos. If not, a 4.0 can't even be built. Then you would be dealing with a long stroke 3.7l built from a 3.5l. Thus not a good turbo motor. Being truly a long rod to bore stroker.
Do not know the answer to your question, but would like to add one. Dose the 3.7 even have the biger oil pump and piston sprayers? Also what heads are going to work with this? You start with 10:1 and then bore and stroke? Unless it can be done with a lower deck? Other then maybe availability and cost why start with a 3.7? Will the sleeve be strong enough? If so, why not punch out your existing 3.5?
The 3.7 block does not have the water and oil ports for the turbos. I need to look inside a 3.7 to confirm or not the oil squirters for the bottom of the pistons. I bet not.
There is an aftermarket guy pushing for someone to build a 3.7 to ecoboost... personally not seeing it.
Has anyone heard from Erick recently? I got 2 tunes from him back in December and did a datalog on both tunes like he asked me to do. I've emailed and called him multiple times with no response to my emails and no luck with the calls. I know one of his parents were sick and he combined his...
I finally took a small trip down to the lone star state, after 18.5/19 hour trip from Ohio. I spent a few days checking out the big state of Texas. Saturday rolled around, and i found my self at Leading Edge Tuning. My truck is a 2013 EB supercrew with full bolt ons running on E30 (check my...
