    Does anyone know of any companies starting to make manifolds, internals, and so on? I'm already budgeting for full motor build this summer and saving for a 28r. Looking for around 300ish whp and stopping at that. Right now i"m working on suspension and paying off bills.. YEEEEUUCK... grown up stuff I know..

    What I have right now is full bolt ons minus an upgraded fmic. No need for one right now, but Cobb, intake, and full strait piped 4" to 3" exhaust gives this little peanut of a party some balls.. It just needs more...

  4. I read in another post finality stated having forged internals but haven't seen anything for sale. Custom pistons would be pretty easy to get made custom but crank and rods might be a little harder to come by

    I have been told that the stumbling block seems to be the injectors.
    At this time there are none available other then OE that fit this engine.

    Crank and rods are the easy part. Not many aftermarket piston suppliers know how to make an EcoBoost style direct injection piston ~dish.

    I asked the Mahle Motorsports guys at SEMA about EcoBoost pistons and they said its only the OEM side that makes those.

    I'm not too worried, you make power with EcoBoost by turning up the boost. If you go so far that an OEM style piston dies, a forged piston wouldn't live much longer. I'm hoping that point lies beyond a street able setup, in the big turbo, big lag race gas realm.
  8. I agree Dave, direct injectors are going to be the hard part, unless you go with extra injectors farther up the manifold

    As I have posted elsewhere BBK performance wants to make some of those things and is out in Temecula, CA but needs a car for dev. temecula's too far for me to have my wheels gone for a week

    My car is available. I'll check out their details to see if we're a match. I don't know anything about them. While I don't have a problem being without my car, I'd like some basic assurances.

    speaking of injectors.. who knows the current limitation? and it could also be or only be the fuel pump that is the limiting factor.

    i have yet to hear anyone finding the limitation of the current fueling system, whatever it is. and i also wonder if the FOST injectors would fit...

    or simply replace the 1.6 with the 2.0 ecoboost aftermarket motor from ford racing... which comes complete with injectors.

    Sources tell me that during tests increasing pressure on the stock injectors has caused them to leak.
    As I stated above the OE injectors ARE the only ones that fit this engine at this time.
    Other sources have said that the OE injectors are good for about 235-250 BHP.

    What about the internal bits you can buy for the R2 rally car?

    Can your source confirm that the injector is a Continental XL2?

    If so, they are now making an XL3 which might fit.

    I just don't have time to open up my engine to see the inside.

    I have not opened mine either.
    So I am sorry that the current info I have is second hand.
    The OE injectors are made by Bosch.

    I contacted Anthony yesterday. He's going to use my car starting Saturday.

    The Focus ST uses Bosch, but with a different injector location so that's clearly not compatible with the 1.6 but are you sure the 1.6 is Bosch?

    I've spent some time reading through press releases, tech notes and academic papers and it sounds like the Continental pretty much matches all the 1.6 EcoBoost specs I can find. I'm pretty sure its in the 1.5 EcoBoost too

    Since the 1.5 is pretty much a Sigma replacement but based on the 1.0, it seems to make sense that the fuel system would be similar.

    If you don't want to open up your engine, it takes some detective work because the people who know aren't really talking and everything is hidden behind a Ford part number.

    Continental was my best guess...

    I am not sure of anything, as I said this info is second hand.
    I can only say that it comes from people that have no reason to give me false information.

    Wait, wait! For what? You're going to let someone open up your engine? Excuse me F1, power unit?
    Will you introduce me to your girlfriend?
    No power train warranty for you!

    I let BBK use my FiST for a week for taking measurements for potentially new parts for the Fiesta ST. If they make any parts, I get the parts for free.
