When the time comes for a new … Continue Reading ››

Breathing Fresh Air – Intake R&D, Part 3: Design

We often say that engines are just air pumps. The more air you can get in and out of them, the more efficient they are, and the more power they make. While that’s true for any engine at its core, computers and electronic controls tend to complicate the equation. As cars and trucks become more complex and efficient, the computers controlling them … Continue Reading ››

In Capable Hands – Transmission Cooler R&D, Part 2: Design

The key to great engineering is often making the most of what you’re given—using the resources available to you in the most efficient way possible. When we last talked about the 2011-2014 F-150 transmission cooler, we noted that Ford’s engineers left a lot on the table. Behind the grille of the F-150 lays a transmission cooler that’s … Continue Reading ››

Carry the Weight – Transmission Cooler R&D, Part 2: Design

Our 2015+ Ford F-150 transmission cooler will follow the same formula. Our focus will be on one key aspect: use as much of the space behind the F-150’s grille as possible. As we saw … Continue Reading ››
