hey I didnt know that

For starters, it's a 60-degree engine, so it's narrow. It's also all-aluminum as far as the block (which uses cast-in iron cylinder liners), cylinder heads and covers. The forged crank is held in place by six-bolt main bearings, four down and two at right angles on the sides of the block-like a proper race engine.

A lightweight aluminum block shaves pounds and helps the V-6 achieve upwards of 30 mpg.


It uses four valves per cylinder and double-overhead camshafts, and not only that, the engine features what Ford calls Ti-VCT, variable valve timing on both intake and exhaust valves, a feature that allows a full 60 degrees of cam timing adjustment on the intake side and 50 degrees on the exhaust side, allowing the 3.7 to produce huge amounts of power, very clean emissions, a very smooth idle, and excellent fuel mileage all at the same time.
The Duratec 3.7 V-6 is actually what the engineers call a "mild Atkinson-cycle" engine, where the variable intake valve mechanism keeps the intake valve open much longer than in a standard engine for better mixing in the chamber, thus reduced pumping work and better fuel economy

yeah I really enjoyed knowing all that good stuff Ford did there home work on that motor , when I stand at the back you cant even hear the motor when its on ! just so smooth also looking at it you see a thing of beauty thin & well put together ! I found that article on line maybe some company will come out with a supercharger the type that bolts to the intake ..... that 3.7 is as good as it gets , has all the things that make for a good platform to build a race machine ... lets see what becomes of it they are talking about some other stuff in 2015 turbo 4 cyl , don't like turbos too hot & too much trouble well lets hope for the best

You can make easy HP and TQ with a turbo....BMW, VW, Audi, and others have been doing it for years with their 4 and 6 cylinder engines.

Like how it says it'll keep advancing spark till it hears knocks. And that using premium will help significantly. That eliminates a lot of those octane related threads.

me I don't like turbos , too much heat too much plumbing never liked turbos in any form , yes they are fast like I said I had a Grand National & it was a fast machine ...... but they seem short lived & have lots of power but have there draw backs ......... car builders seem to have no problem sticking them any car 4 6 or 8 cylinder ? they give a real boost ! its just me , but they can power any car to really get them to pull !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They make an oiless turbo that can be bolted on in as little as an afternoon and comes with everything to do it minus the wrenches and ratchets. Puts the v6 at 450 hp at about 12 pound boost. It's 5,000 and better than a pro charger.

Very interesting, can you tell me who produces the oiless turbo for the 3.7L V6? Since you mentioned it's better than a Procharger, I would really like to know. Thanks in advance.

I'm interested in this turbo. I'm pretty happy with my procharger making 497 rwhp on 10 lbs. if this turbo is better and is $5k I might look into it.

Is it also true that on the pro charger, you're limited by bama to 4k rpm for safety reasons? Girl at a show was saying that she was limited only to 4k

Same here, but it's a twin screw or whipper or nothing.

Lol no whoever told you that has no clue what they are talking about at all. Boost is around 2 lbs at 4k rpm.

The lady at the show had a 2011 with it and she couldn't get it to rev past 4k. I thought that was just strange.

Much less with a pro charger.

Well she might have been coming off a new engine rebuild and tune. I know when I'm breaking in my engine my limiter will be set around 4k just so I can't romp on it like I always do and am always tempted to do. At least until I get a decent beak in period done. Haha

Wait, how can this turbo run 12 lbs of boost on a stock engine safely?

"Safely" is a relative term. For some people safe is not blowing up when you hit the gas. For others safely means going 120k miles. If your idea of safety is engine longevity obviously running a turbo at 12 psi is not the path to get there.

Like I said previously, if you want the least stressful way to make power the procharger Is it. Instead of hitting the engine block with 500 torque all at once at 4k rpm, which puts massive stress on the block, the procharger builds power linearly, with no spikes in boost because it is driven by a pulley. At 3500 rpm there is about 1-2 pounds of boost, engine torque is not much higher and therefore the block is not stressed like when engine torque is doubled at that rpm range as in a turbo.

By 5000 rpm there is about 5-6 pounds of boost and touching 7k you should see all 8 lbs. this is much less stressful on the engine

No worries - some of us can out-drive guys and fly planes for fun in our spare time. Eventually one of us will show ya.

OP - interesting read on the V6 - I considered getting the V6 when I got mine..

Lol really? I'm chill...that post in no way was meant to be an insult toward you, just saying there's PLENTY of woman out there who can drive, and especially saying woman can't drive here, if you haven't noticed, there are PLENTY of woman members here, and if you haven't met a girl who can drive, than you just haven't met the right ones IMO...I apologize if I offended you in any way.

I've heard that since superchargers are belt-driven, they also put extra strain on the engine. But I'm no expert, and I'm not saying you're wrong by any means. Personally I would prefer a turbo just "because" I like turbos more.

---------- Post added at 04:22 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:21 PM ----------

If rather just forge the engine and not have to worry about 12 lbs of boost anyway.

Look up the new Procharger i-1, it's almost a turbo and supercharger combined

They don't put extra strain on it. They just take some hp from the engine to turn the pulley but the procharger is efficient enough that it is a very small amount. Bottom line is that you can easily make 450 rwhp and 360 rwtq with the procharger and be safe doing it.

360rwtq? I keep seeing procharged cars running low 300's for torque. Is there any way to increase the torque?

With a smaller pulley, a good tune, and bigger injectors that number is definetly possible. I've seen some dyno sheets with that much torque and than some are in the 320-340 rwtq range and those are usually on the procharger canned tune.

The torque isn't gonna matter to much when you make 400 rwhp from 5k rpm and with 3.73 gears you will always be above 5k rpm and therefore always in the boost zone.
