Has anyone looked into the new Ecoboost 35?

Hp at 2700 RPM is 215 hp
Hp at 2000 RPM is 159 hp

Run it direct drive, inverted ala Steve Whitman. No PIA PSRU.

Lycoming fuel injected 4 cylinder 360 is said to be 326 lbs, 370 lbs installed.

Ford 35 longblock is 270 lbs.

Prop adapter ?
Flywheel ?
Starter?
Alternator?
Intake manifold?
Exaust system (including turbos)?
Cooling system?
Dry sump system?
Etc?

This is going to be a common engine for Ford. Coming out in the 2011 F150 and others. Should be showing up in wrecking yards soon.

If only it wasn't so complex. It's a beautiful engine, though. I like the fact that it has an internally driven water pump and chain driven cams; fewer belts.

Yup, that's the catch. No other way to get that much power. I guess It needs a computer designed especially for aircraft use, as well as two alternators - but one of those could go around the propeller shaft inside the bell housing..
