  • New variable geometry turbo-charger, fuel injection system, connecting rod and main bearings, oil pan and a forged crankshaft.
  • Ford has added a mechanical fan to the engine; This fan is better able to move air under hefty loads, and is more capable than an electric cooling fans in extreme conditions. To put it simply, your engine will have improved high temperature and high altitude performance!
