Initial lets talk about the juicy things: 2.3L TVS R2300 superchargers featuring Eaton’s new TVS Engineering can be preordered and fitted to the V8 engines. Those substantial turbos boast four-lobe rotors with large-flow inlet and outlet ports which fundamentally enable much more electrical power at larger RPM. Other highlights incorporate ROUSH’s new cold air induction technique, a one hundred mm MAF tube (mass airflow meter), twin 60mm throttle body, a high effectiveness intercooler method that incorporates a dual-core very low temp radiator, degas bottle and large capability air-to-water intercooler. A non-calibrated five. Tuner kit is now readily available for order with the calibrated ROUSH five. kit coming this february. The 6.two non-calibrated 1 will be readily available sometime this month while the six.two calibrated ROUSH edition can be shipped no sooner than April.

All 4 engines (that includes the 3.7 V6 and three.5 V6) will get cold air induction system kits. In the V6 that translates into an open component upper air box, a washable large-flow air filter and a new MAF tube. V8 also get get that, plus a new clean air tube. Everything is carefully tuned and crafted with OE products to meet F-150 factory standards. All kits are developed for straightforward installation requiring no drilling or cutting.

To wrap it up, ROUSH have thrown in a dual-tip, stainless steel, higher efficiency cat back exhaust program. It fits nearly every engine/cabin/bed configuration. It allows air to go trough much more smoothly and minimizes back stress which supposedly increases electrical power and torque… and engine noise. The mufflers are built from large grade stainless steal smeared with specially applied (micro-porously) chrome that does not subdue to flaking or cracking below large temperatures.

By the time April comes around, all ROUSH efficiency components must be all set for shipment so that newly acquired F-150 trucks wont have to roll the streets naked.

Bioethanol-Powered Ferrari FF Makes 875bhp

875bhp ff Bioethanol Powered Ferrari FF Makes 875bhp

We are finding this piece of news a bit hard to believe, just because it’s too good to be true!

Apparently for €1500 some one in UK can convert your Ferrari FF to run on bio-ethanol, and promises 875bhp.

That’s a gain of 225bhp over the standard FF. Of course, we do realize that theoretically E85 makes more power than petrol, Koenigsegg has proved it many times. We’re just wondering why they didn’t make a bigger fuss, especially as it’s an authorized Ferrari dealer that’s come up with the trick.

What they’ve achieved here beats the best of what all tuning giants can come up with for the V12 Ferrari engine. What’s more, it emits far far less CO2 than petrol, and that’s the best part of it. Performance-wise, the car does 0 to 60mph in under 3 seconds, another bold claim that’s hard to swallow.

We do hope it’s true, and we do hope it catches on. Who doesn’t like 200 clean horses for €1500.

Bentley Plug-In Hybrid Could Use V8 and/or W12; Final SUV Approval Expected Soon

2013 Bentley Continental GT V8 203 626x382 Bentley Plug In Hybrid Could Use V8 and/or W12; Final SUV Approval Expected Soon

Final August, we received a extensive get from Bentley chief Wolfgang Dürheimer about the brand and the technologies that will drive its vehicles well into the future. We sat down once more with Herr Dürheimer at the 2012 Detroit car display to get an update on the automaker’s plug-in hybrid technique and the state of the SUV that it hopes to add in the subsequent couple of many years.

Plugging Into VW’s Elements Bin

1st, the plug-in hybrid: Don’t anticipate to see it right up until the next generation of Bentleys lands, and don’t expect the luxury brand to take the lead in its advancement. Relatively, it will use technological innovation that is shared with other brand names in the Volkswagen Group.

This sort of a hybrid program is not a thing that Bentley wants to do on its personal as a “matter of differentiation,” explained Dürheimer. “For us, differentiation is styling, look, prestige, craftsmanship, luxury. For us, hybrid tech is a ‘need-to-have’,” he said, and it is completely acceptable for other manufacturers, this kind of as Audi and Porsche, to take the advancement lead. But lacking a require for differentiation undoubtedly is not the only explanation for that method individuals larger brand names not only have the higher encounter and engineers needed to develop the tech, and they also can absorb the advancement charges into their bigger budgets. This is equivalent to when VW funded the architecture for Bentley’s current Continental line by means of its Phaeton program, though it’s likely many a lot more VW Group manufacturers will make use of the result in this specific case.

Dürheimer suggested that Audi’s new twin-turbo 4.-liter V-8—it’s also put in in the new, entry-level Continental GT—would be the most likely gasoline-driven element of the hybrid system, which will sandwich a motor-generator amongst the engine and transmission. Nonetheless, since the W-12 is relatively short for its cylinder count, the electric motor fits behind it, as well, Dürheimer said. He previously informed us that he deemed an electric-only assortment of 16 to 19 miles to be acceptable for a Bentley.
