► 2011 Ford F-150 Ecoboost Hero Engine - part 2
Ford powertrain engineers will tear down an engine that has gone a distance
equal to six times around the earth and three quarters of the way to the
moon. Or put another way: the engine has the equivalent of 160,000 miles
and 10 years of rugged use. Now, Ford engineers want to see how the
engine's parts and components held up. They will examine it for long-term
durability in front of the public at the North American International Auto
Show in Detroit on Jan. 15, 2011 at 11 a.m.

race truck to take on the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 desert endurance race this

NASCAR track and beat the competition in a towing exercise at Davis Dam.
SDHQ's Twin-Turbo Eco-Raptor - /TUNED

standard 6.2L mill is no slouch, it's far from high tech and eats gas like
no other. This is the Raptor review Ford doesn't want you to see: the Super

Ford EcoBoost takes on Toyota, Chevy & the Ike Gauntlet Mashup Towing Test ( Episode 2 )
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2013 Ford F-150 EcoBoost Pickup is built to tow. But is it better
than the Toyota Tundra and the brand new Chevy Silverado? We decided to
find out by putting all three pickups up against each other in a Mega
Mashup by having them tow the old Lincoln Continental Mark V Diamond in the
Rough up one of the steepest and highest American Highways. From Dillion,
Colorado to the Eisenhower Tunnel U.S. I-70 climbs 8 miles to a maximum
elevation of 11,158 feet or 3,401 meters. That's enough elevation and grade
to test the most powerful of pickups. Is the Ford F-150 EcoBoost up to the task of towing a over 7,000
pounds up to the top of the tunnel?
In this second TFLtruck Ike Gauntlet video review we test the truck up the
Ike Gauntlet see how fast it will tow over 7,000 pounds of old American
Luxury car 8 miles up a 7 percent grade to the Eisenhower tunnel with the
help of our friend Kent from ( http://www.MrTruck.com ).

recently logged some tough miles in rugged Pacific Northwest country in the
latest demonstration of its durability.
The new 3.5-liter EcoBoost "torture
test" truck engine moved from the lab to the real world with a stop at a
logging company in Oregon. It's the current phase of a multi-part series of
Web-based documentaries that began when this randomly selected EcoBoost engine endured the equivalent of 150,000
miles or 10 years' use on the dynamometer, replicating the duty cycle of
the harshest-use customer.
After the Dyno torture
testing, the engine was dropped into a new 2011 Ford F-150 to work as a log
skidder for Nygaard Logging of Warrenton, OR. Skidding is the process of
moving harvested timber, after the branches have been removed, from the
forest to a staging area where it is placed on a truck to be sent to a

replaced a vehicle similar to a backhoe that "ropes" the harvested timber
using high-strength cables and drags it to the staging area.
The work was performed at Clatsop State Forest, where the 2011 F-150 EcoBoost pulled logs weighing from 4,000
to 9,000 pounds. That's where the new engine's best-in-class torque of 420
lb.-ft. at 2,500 rpm was essential -- especially low-end torque. Up to 90
percent of the EcoBoost truck
engine's peak torque is available from 1,700 rpm to 5,000 rpm -- all on
