According to Ford, the EcoBoost engine for the s650 has been completely overhauled.

New pistons, rods, camshaft, fuel delivery system, air induction system, and an electronically controlled turbo.

The EcoBoost will now use dual injection (port and direct). The direct injection fuel pressure was also bumped to 5,000psi.

Compression ratio is up to 10.6:1 (from 9.5:1).

The turbo is a twin-scroll turbo with an electronically controlled wastegate.

The EcoBoost will now also use internally plumbed exhaust-gas recirculation.

The EcoBoost engine will only be paired with a 10r80 automatic transmission, Ford will not be offering the EcoBoost with a manual at this time.

Seems like the EcoBoost crowd will get some cool new tech! Hoping this motor will be able to handle a lot more hp than the previous gen.

Check out this video where the new motor is shown:

Sadly this is more interesting to me than the Dork Horse. Hoping to hear its sitting at a nice 330-350HP.

Yeah, but I can't buy that. So unless their plan is to in 3-4yrs have a "More darker, darkest, I am Batman Horse" with the 5.4 Its got little impact on myself.

I doubt they would make a unique engine just for the race car. In fact, I think the race car powerplant has to be homologated (not 100% sure on IMSA rules, but same thing happened to the C8 Z06 and their C8.R engine). I'm thinking/hoping they put the 5.4 in the next top tier model.

Lol, "I'm Batman horse" 😆 Dark Horse is a silly name; they're trying way too hard.

The street cars were all underwhelming but the Dark Horse S could be epic. Still wouldn't be able to afford one but maybe in a few years on the used market.

I am hoping the 5.4 will bolt to coyote heads and I’m hoping it’s just bigger bore. Then you could actually just throw it in the current gen mustang.

My actual guess is the GT500 is getting bumped to 5.4 and they are doing like they did with the 2003-2004 Mach1 and basically making an NA version of that engine, as everyone had hoped they would do with the Predator for the 2021-23 Mach1. Possible a new GT350/BOSS with a NA 5.4 but they made it seem like they were ALL in on Dark Horse the next few years, so unless they have a Dark Horse upgrade that replaces the GT500 its unlikely.

The Dark Horse will probably, like the Mach1 be 55-62k on average. A 5.4L will make it probably into the high 60's low-70's, which will be getting to close to GT500 likely in pricing. I wonder if they are going to keep with the "fox body" thing and bring back the Cobra with a 5.4L, or do like a Dark Horse Stage II or something.

Personally I also hope with the revised 2.3T that they will also use the foxbody trend to bring back a SVO with about 400HP.

This new 2.3L is really interesting to me. Hopefully they are including the larger turbo from the HPP engines so it can make power higher up in the RPMs than the current 2.3L does.
I wonder if Ford managed to improve the engine enough that it can be tuned without threatening to toss a rod through the side of the engine block every time you even think of touching the gas.

If so, the EB would be one hell of car.

My hope is that the rods and pistons are a lot beefier. The turbo is a new twin-scroll turbo with the electronic wastegate, don't know if ford is already using something like this or if it is just for this car.

2.3ecoboost will be 350hp??? or more?
Ford says that it will not be going backwards in efficiency or horsepower.

So horsepower and mpg will at least be the same, but with all the upgrades we can expect a bump in horsepower and efficiency, if at least just a good bump in efficiency. I think 350hp is a reasonable expectation.

Edit: I do think ford said they are not targeting peak numbers, and are more focused on the driving aspect. So I would expect a better torque and power curve with a minor improvement in overall peak hp.

I'm hoping to around 350. What sucks if it wasn't for the locked ECU's a good tune would be an easy 370+ and a E30 tune would be 380-390.

You'd have an i4 EcoBoost with stock Terminator numbers from just a tune. I'm hoping they bring out another 2.3 Hi-Po version.
