I recently purchased a Lincoln Nautilus with the 2.0 Ltr engine, and I also looked at a bunch of new Ford SUV and trucks. These new engines have both direct injection and port injection. They are able to make serious Hp and Torque on turbo charged engines, with very high compression ratios. There is a version of the 3.5 Ltr truck that has over 13:1 compression ratio and makes over 400 Hp.

I know the 7.3 Ltr is N/A and designed to make power lugging heavy loads for a long time, while the small turbo stuff can only make power for a short time before melting itself (I know the ECU will not let you melt it down, but it will also cut the power). But what all technology is on this monster and how do you control it? I'm sure if it is not known yet, it soon will be. It will be interesting.
