Took the new Lincoln to the track

Picked up a 2010 Lincoln MKT EcoBoost last week, and took it to the track tonight.
These cars weigh just barely shy of 5000lbs without driver.
Best pass of the night:
2.185
6.045

Not bad for a big boat that weighs as much as it does.

The power of turbo at work. Thats actually a pretty impressive time right. Did you take out all the seats for some weight reduction. Maybe you can get it into 13s with just all the seats gone.

That's pretty crazy they weigh that much and still manage that kind of acceleration. What kind of real world mileage does it get?

Thats awesome JL!!! I hear those little motors with the turbo's really haul. I'd love to have one of the new Taurus sedans with one.

Great times for a barge!!! LOL

Have you tweaked it at all yet?

No, I'm not pulling anything out of this car. It still has my granddaughter's carseat in it,and I had a big box of CD's in the back that I've been loading into the onboard jukebox. I don't think it'll run 13's stock. About the best I've seen out of comparable vehicles has been a 14.20.

I'm getting an running total average right now of almost 21mpg over the last 1600 miles. If you can keep it under 70mph, it'll get nearly 26 on the highway.

It's not getting anything done to the tune until I'm certain that the powertrain is solid with no defects...probably 30-40K miles.

Yeah, that would be a good idea. But it should definately benefit from some tuning later on. Thats awesome in a commuter, daily driver rig.

Congrats!

Tuning alone will get them to the mid-low 13's in good weather.

That's pretty cool for nearly 5000 lbs with a V6!

I think they look pretty sweet once you actually see one up close.

Now that's a beast of a machine right there. It's interesting to see that Ford has them so conservatively tuned.

That's been my delay as well. Not wanting to take any chances with losing the warranty. Good times nonetheless!

I think the Ecoboost aftermarket may be growing ever so slightly. LMS currently has a set of heads their working on, and claim there's lots of room for improvement.

There was a crewcab Lariat Ecoboost F150 out there last Friday, and it was running sub 15 second times. I think it was 14.70's. This little engine is amazing. The truck EcoBoosts are TiVCT where the car EcoBoosts are intake VCT only, and the truck engine uses larger turbos.

Dont these engine have a 4.0 capacity? I see another successful generation of upgrades for this engine family down the line. Basically a lot more power and economy yet to be explored.

Yes, they have an official "design" capacity of 4.0L....not to say the aftermarket couldn't get a bit more displacement out of it.

I have a lot to learn before I understand a 4.6 sohc really well, as in every part in it. In that time Ill be keeping up on those engines and their progress too so I can do what I want with it really. I think a small car with an eco boost would be my hot rod.

But then again I like the idea of putting it in a heavy car too. Im thinking early 80s panther body on a modded 2010 panther chassis. I dont even know if that can be done but Im crazy/stupid enough to try more than once. It would be totally sleeper if you could clear a hood.

so in theory the hot rod world might just use F150 turbos on the car/suv applications for more power?

Dunno. The F150 turbos are supposedly from the internet buzz a less desirable Borg-Warner K03 vs the Garrett GT15's found on the car version. Plus, there's the issues of fitament on the manifolds that will be different,and possibly differing wastegate controls.
These engines are in their infancy for modifications, so it'll be awhile before we see much for them.

Plus, the F150 supposedly has a bigger DI pump, which seems to be a limitation on the car/suv.

I keep hearing how the Ecoboost EEC is encrypted and at this point altering the tune isn't possible. Is that no longer true ?

The 2010-2012 Flex and MKT are not encrypted, and AFAIK, the 2012 SHO are not either. The F150's ARE encrypted though.

I think tunes just came out for the f150 like this week. I am not willing to void my warranty but I imagine in a year or two there will be some tunes that add 30 horsepower while possibly even increasing gas mileage. Time will tell though.

Thats good to know on the times JL. 14.70 is no joke for a v6 f150. Too bad I promised my wife to never race it lol.

One of the guys with a Flex (pretty much the same as an MKT) has been running low 14's with [email protected] 98-something mph. It's stock-no tune, nothing.

There's a guy over on the SHO forums with a Flex with a handfull of small mods running 12's. There's a few SHO's down into low low 12's as well.
