Ford EcoBoost V6 Engine Teardown


At the 2011 NAIAS Detroit Auto Show, Ford will rip apart a 3.5 liter V6 EcoBoost engine that powered a Ford F-150 under some heavy usage equivalent of 160,000 miles and 10-years of rugged use.

Why they do that? They want everybody to come and watch how the engine’s parts and components held up the heavy punishment as a sign of its great quality and durability.

It is free to the public to come and watch the whole process at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Jan. 15, 2011 at 11:00 a.m.
