CAR So all you faggots saying that the EcoBoost wouldn't hold up in a truck?

This is the place
The engine ran for 300 hours straight, simulating 150,000 real-world miles, then dragged 110,000 lbs. So, how's it look?

The dual-overhead cam powerplant was shipped to dynamometer cell 36B in the Ford Dearborn engine labs and run for 3,000 hours to replicate the equivalent of 150,000 customer miles,

so which is it?

Obviously an error but common sense tells you 3000 hours

A leakdown test was performed to measure how well the engine’s 24 intake and exhaust valves and piston rings were still able to seal the cylinders. One cylinder was found to have a cautionary 13 percent air loss past the combustion chamber’s seals, while all other cylinders were acceptable with single digits of air leakage.
:dunno:

Whoa there n!gga. Chevy 350 been proven in REAL WORLD where the ecoboost is proven in the lab, yea clearly the same.

I do agree with you, we will see how it holds up in the real world with time, not just miles.

However, they have ran numerous torture tests in the real world, not just a lab on this thing, and it has smiled and kept on going.
