    Another new V8 ?

    I mean the unknown petrol, not a diesel. There are several diesels coming i production that we are aware of but the petrolengine is still a mystery The link you wrote is too old. from 2006. Gear up.

    Another new V8 ?

    At the AGM in the Swedish Co Sintercast in 2019 they said "The company also expects the production approval of a new SinterCast-CGI petrol engine, potentially marking the company's second passenger vehicle petrol engine application." The material will be CGI the same as the 2.7 and 3 l EcoBoost Is it this V8 we are waiting for? https://www.introduce.se/en/companies/sintercast/news/2019/5/sintercast-to-confirm-new-series-production-and-new-installation-activities-at-annual-general-meeting

    The 3 l is a bored 2.7. Same dimensions. https://www.sintercast.com/market/sintercast-passenger-vehicles/ Ford 2.7 and 3.0 Litre V6 Petrol - Ford and Lincoln

    Obviusly you can´t see that the cylinderwalls are much thicker in the aluminiumblock without using a sliding caliper. That´s not without a reason, CGI can stand the PCP much better than aluminium and therefore the engine can be smaller in size with the same strength. Time will tell. I leave this issue teaching you. Google has the answers

    Which block is smaller and lighter ? The 3 l V6 aluminiumblock from Mercedes or the 3 l V6 block from Audi made in CGI? https://www.sintercast.com/market/exhibitions-2012-19/ Scoll down to GIFA World Foundry Trade Fair, 16-20 June 2015 " The display also included a direct comparison between the Audi 3.0 litre V6 CGI cylinder block and the Mercedes 3.0 litre V6 aluminium cylinder block, highlighting that the assembled Compacted Graphite Iron engine is 125 mm shorter and weighs 15 kg less than the aluminium engine." beware of akirby but these are raw facts.

    With the block in aluminium it will be bigger than the current 7.3 l Godzilla and that´s not the way to make it fit in many enginebays. Much better to have the engineblock in CGI as several Ford engines like 6.7 PS, 2,7 and 3 l EcoBoost. In that way it can be made much smaller, stiffer , more silent and lighter than an aluminium block, and the CGI can stand heavy trims. Used in Nascar för decades.

    What engines is he mentioning?

    I just found this. Why not share it instead of being stubborn?
  8. Ford doesn’t plan to offer eight cylinders anytime soon well Ford is coming with a 6.8 l V8 in MY 2022. I hope that it will be a relative with the EcoBoots 2,7 l V6 with a small but rigid block in CGI Will fit in Bronco, F-150, Mustang. Raptor +500 HP Muscles

    Is it the coming 6.8 l V8 that will be produced in Windsor? Small but stiff block in CGI? So small that it can fit in small enginebays....... A homerun in Bronco, Raptor, Mustang and F-150.
  10. At the conference call after the Tupy Q3 report Fernando Cestari de Rizzo, Tupy S.A. - CEO is saying "in the U.S. light commercial vehicles is very strong, low inventory, and we should have a lot of sales. Also, the Ford made 2 important launches, one is on the market. One should reach the market soon. This is good for us. We have orders -- strong orders for this." from Yahoo Which two "important launches"? Is it the new Broncos 2,7 l V6? And?

    Bronco on the move

    I looked at Mike Levines Twitter and found this https://twitter.com/mrlevine https://twitter.com/mrlevine/status/1260719573717807104/photo/1 But is that right? 18mpg city 27 highway, that must be the old one.

  15. Too weak engines. They would bring the EcoBoost 2,7 l V6
