SEMA: 400 hp 2014 Ford Fusion – How far can EcoBoost go?

2014 ford fusion

The 2013 SEMA show is Las Vegas is shaping up to be one of the biggest ever.  Case in point – this Full-Race Motorsports modified 2014 Ford Fusion.  Yes, it has 21-inch wheels, big brake package and red calipers.  However, the more interesting story is under the hood, where Full-Race upgraded the stock 240 hp 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine to 400 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque.

How did they get 200 horsepower per liter from this turbocharged power-plant?  Full-Race team used a BorgWarner turbocharger paired with a customized cold air intake and cat-back exhaust system.  These guys have a long standing relationship with BorgWarner, and this setup should last.

On the inside, there are plenty of gadgets for most geeks: Adroid tablet installed into the center stack to power infotainment, internet, and data logging for the high strung engine.
