BRENTWOOD, England – Ford’s EcoBoost petrol engine technology is making its aftermarket debut at the UK Autosport International Show, currently underway in Birmingham.
Ford Component Sales (FCS), which is responsible for the supply of genuine Blue Oval parts, is highlighting the innovative engine technology on its stand at the Show. The technology is being offered to motorsport competitors, independent performance car manufacturers and vehicle converters.
FCS is displaying a range of turbo-powered, direct-injection EcoBoost engines, from the award-winning 1.0 litre to the 1.6, 2.0 and the 3.5 V6 units currently available in US cars and trucks.
Powertrains available from FCS include products and technologies from Ford divisions from around the world, with capacities from 1.0 to 9.0 litres and in three-cylinder to V8 configurations. Fuel options include petrol, diesel, flexifuel and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG). Five and six-speed manual and automatic transmissions are available in front-wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive configurations.
Additionally, FCS has created a niche market for components in many specialist industrial applications. Recent examples include a Fiesta air vent integrated into an office desk with a built-in air purification system, and a Mondeo door lock used in an ice cream dispensing machine.
Steve Clary, Ford Component Sales managing director, commented: “It makes sense for low-volume manufacturers to buy quality-assured technology from a strong global supplier, keeping component design and development costs to a minimum and allowing new product to come to market much faster. Adding these EcoBoost engines to our range will power the business forward in 2014 and beyond.”
