ford's new 3.5 twin turbo v6

now THAT is an exploded view! it's a very big photo, so if you click on it and zoom, you can see a lot of minute details. if you look closely, you can see that the main bearing caps are six bolt, four regular and 2 cross bolts. and check out that deep skirt on the block! you can see how ford plans on using this as a truck engine as well as in higher performance car applications.

an absolute killer photo.

All that combined to put out 415ish hp on 85 is damn impressive. I've never been a Ford guy but that's interesting. Sadly, the current oil situation is not going away so manufaturer loyalty may become less important.

yeah, i guess the lowly 4 cylinder will rule the day sooner or later.
