Ford’s EcoBoost series of engines are my cup of turbocharged tea. Powerful, fuel efficient (at least in comparison to bigger engines with similar horsepower) and with a torque curve flatter than the Bonneville Salt Flats, it is everything an eco-concious gear head like me could want. And I’m not the only one. Gearheads are finding that the EcoBoost engine, including the 3.5 liter V6, has tremendous power potential beyond what Ford has limited themselves to.

Roush Yates, a famous name from the world of racing engines, are teaming up on an EcoBoost V6 for the 2011 American Le Mans Series. This will give a chance for the EcoBoost to really flex its turbocharged muscles.
