    A new petrolengine with CGI in the block?

    By the way akirby . The shareprice is up 73 % this year. đź’Ş
  2. Will it be Ford or the VW-group? From a PR today from Swedish Sintercast that´s providing Ford with the Nano-engines at 3 and 2,7 liters with a highTech CGI. The company also expects the production approval of a new SinterCast-CGI petrol engine, potentially marking the company’s second passenger vehicle petrol engine application. Sintercast AGM today
  3. #akirby. Do you know that the shareprice of Sintercast has rised 60 % this year? Thanks to Ford, the main customer.
  4. https://www.motor1.com/news/315421/ford-focus-fiesta-mild-hybrid/ Scheduled for a market launch next year, the Fiesta EcoBoost Hybrid and Focus EcoBoost Hybrid will use a version of the 1.0-liter three-cylinder EcoBoost equipped with a belt-driven integrated starter/generator (BISG) which replaces the traditional alternator. The BISG will recover and store energy usually lost during braking and coasting in a small 48-volt lithium-ion air-cooled battery pack. Is it this engine? http://autoindustrynewsletter.blogspot.com/2016/07/ford-puts-cgi-into-1-litre-ecoboost.html#more Ford puts CGI into 1-litre EcoBoost Ford in the UK has confirmed its three-cylinder 1-litre Fox gasoline engine does have a cylinder block of compacted graphite iron (CGI). The turbocharged, direct injection engine is being built at Ford’s Camaçari engine plant in Brazil, which opened two years ago.
  5. Apparently it´s just an increased production of the EcoBoost and no new program. Good in any way. It seems to to have a good impact of the volumes for Tupy as they mention it in the Conference Call

    2020MY Production Schedule

    In a recent conference call after the Q4 report at the Brazilian foundry Tupy the CEO is talking about the recent start of the Cummins production for RAM but then he says that a new volumeproduction will start this May of a petrolengine with a block in CGI for Pickups Is this the added production of the Nano-V6 EcoBoost engine with a displacement of 2.7 and 3 liters he is talking about or can it be some new production? We know this engine will come in the 2020 MY of several models like Explorer and Lincoln Aviator but can we consider these mentioned as Pickups? Is it migrating to the Ranger? Is it just a production for the Explorer and Aviator with JOB #1 date 05/06/19 , the MKZ with JOB #1 date 08/05/19 ? Conference call http://ri.tupy.com.br/default_en.asp?idioma=1&conta=44

    I am getting paid indirectly by the coming investors that have to pay an extra high shareprice. Look at the company and rethink why you are not investing in this growing market. The annual dividend is more than 5 % and rising. đź’Ş

    New Ford 7.0 L....?

    Wouldn´t be surprised if the new 7.3 liter V8 comes with the same outer size as the old 6.2 l Ford's New 7.3L Engine is Actually an OHV V8. Not as high as the OHC. Thinner cylinderwalls due to the stronger CGI? Not pure speculation.

    New Ford 7.0 L....?

    Well comparing diesel with petrolengines is like comparing apples with pears. The Ford PS 6,7 l V8 diesel has a compression ratio of 17,7:1 and the Ford Boss petrol V8 6,2 has a ratio of 9,8:1. It´s more relevant to compare with the NASCAR Ford FR9 which has a ratio of 12.0:1 and that´s close for the maximum of sparkignited engines. Block in CGI as most in NASCAR. Time will tell. As Ford nowadays is a frequently user of this material which also has advantages in NVH it´s a candidate for sure. " Flexibility and versatility" Hmm.

    New Ford 7.0 L....?

    We have to wait and see. The 3.0 Ecoboost from Continental that´s coming in Explorer, Police Interceptor, Aviator is using CGI. CGI is a growing segment in Fords rich palette

    In the document they are claiming " The flexibility of the 7.3 adds versatility the ( to?) our products that our costumer ( wrongspelling of "customers". Strange, is it a fake? ) If it´s a genuine internal document after all i will recall this from another site when they say " flexibility" Conversely, Ford's use of CGI has been growing over the past several years. Both the 6.7L Powerstroke and the 2.7L EcoBoost feature CGI blocks. It's not out of the realm of possibility for Ford to cast this new 7.3L block in strong, light-weight, CGI. https://www.svtperformance.com/threads/update-return-of-the-pushrod-fords-new-7-3l-engine-is-actually-an-ohv-v8.1160212/

    With its weak and old fashioned greyiron engine the Duramax falls 14 % below in tow rating and 9 % lower in torque if you compare with the new Cummins diesel in RAM HD. WEAK. Outdated by far-----------
  14. http:// https://www.svtperformance.com/threads/new-cummins-6-7l-hits-1-000-lb-ft-could-it-be-coming-to-a-ford-near-you.1170459/ So what does all this mean for Ford owners? First, you can guarantee Powerstroke will jump to over 1,000 lb-ft of torque once the 10R140 transmission is introduced in the Super Duty. Most of the upgrades made to the Cummins are already baked into the 6.7L V8 PSD architecture. Second, there is also the possibility that we may see this new Cummins ISB find its way into the Medium-Duty Ford F-650/750 trucks. A red-painted ISB was the diesel of choice for many years in the big Fords going all the way back to the 12-Valve engine (which were grey/black) in the old F-800. When the Cummins marketing guys asked who I was shooting coverage for and I mentioned a Ford based publication, they said I should like some of their future applications. So that coy comment could mean something quite interesting, or nothing at all. We'll have to wait and see. At the end of the day, competition makes the breed stronger and I expect this new Cummins to be good for everyone.
