Was there not a guy on here who did a build with those two items?
Yes, green notch back, very very cool car.
NA stick shift deal.
The Raptor 6.2 is a big motor for a Fox.
@SID297 If you have contact with your source again, Id be interested to hear about how they are addressing carbon buildup. D4 systems are notorious for coking oil vapor on intake runners and intake valves. Toyota's (Lexus) D4S features both port and direct injection, probably very similar to the system Ford wants to employ on Godzilla.
Even with the port fuel, we would often find some carbon on the back of the intake valves, though not nearly as bad as the D4 only IS250 engine. Ive also heard the process of DI can leave more carbon deposits than usual on the piston faces.
It would be interesting to hear how they are combating this irritating phenomenon that occurs with direct injection.
Need to build a Lightning and Raptor with this beast.
I think a L in the vein of the Gen-1 could be very nice.
maybe I dont understand the abbreviations for the systems but it looks like ford is running DI and traditional injection on everything now due to the carbon issues. All the ford 18 model year DI stuff has it best I can tell (well, F150 and mustang anyway)
Correct. I suspect this engine will have the same setup.
Hell yes! I love my 13 Roush and I did enjoy my 17 but a monster pushrod V8 in a raptor would be freakin incredible. I'd be first at my dealer to get one if it ever happens
Any experience with E85 in these set ups?
Just wonder if anyone is using flex fueling in the DI/Port dual injection deals.
Having the DI system on a separate source with straight E85/E98 would be killer for boost as well as high compression.
I remember when John Coletti left Ford he was working with a company doing just that, high octane on demand for greater performance (mainly out of smaller displacement boosted combos and mainly for mileage) but we all know he’d give us a performance variant
Seriously tho the cleaning nature and high octane of E85/E98 could help the deposit issues.
I certainly hope so. I believe current Super Duty and F-150s are Flex Fuel, or I think have the option for a flex fuel system.
Being ethanol compliant makes it easier for better NA performance. And... uh.... you know... a Whipple FI setup....
Why again is it a POS? this article said 525ft-lbs estimated..the raptor eco is rated 510 on stock boost.
The Porft injection was added strictly for emissions from what I have been told.
realistically, Ford needs to offer the OPTION for a V8 power plant should they want one.
IMO the Raptor V6 TT is far from a "POS"...I have one, and I also had the Roush V8 Gen1...the Gen2 blows the Gen1 away...except for the sound, the Gen1 sound was better. I swapped out the exhaust and intake and tuned my Gen2 so it sounds way better than stock, but still not a Roush V8.
I certainly appreciate the tech that's in the EcoBoost Raptor engine. Its a tremendous production engine that delivers for Ford. But, imagine if they did that to a Coyote Gen 2, or even a Gen 3.
As it is, Im looking forward to what this NA 7.3L monster is capable of. If it can get the power on demand when I want it and be as practically fuel efficient as it can be while driving unloaded for DD use, its got my vote x100000.
New Boss 429...
Always wanted one of those.
I have more data and an article written. I'm going to try to post it today.
The official code name is : King Dong
Lol they could call it "unicorns and rainbows" and if its even near what it could potentially be, Id buy it.
If it doesn't have a turbo or a blower that can be pullied down easily... it will be useless at high altitudes.... N/A is absolutely garbage in Colorado
