The factory 2.3-liter Ford EcoBoost engine is not enough for Ford Racing. The company took the engine to the next level and the result is the Ford Racing EcoBeast short block for the 2016 Ford Focus RS.
Ford teamed with top engine component manufacturers in the industry to help build the performance engine. MAHLE Motorsports proved its forged pistons with a 9.5:1 compression ratio designed to handle more boost and crank out serious horsepower, while still offering the superior durability that racers and enthusiasts demand, according to the company.
MAHLE is the world’s largest piston manufacturer, and is the leading piston liaison between upper level professional racing, OE and the specialty equipment automotive aftermarket. All parts are machined to exacting tolerances on MAHLE manufactured, application specific equipment with unmatched quality and consistency, according the company. The U.S. Motorsports division operates in Fletcher, North Carolina. For more information, contact www.mahlemotorsports.com, or call toll free: 888-255-1942.
