I can't wait to hear what happens. I bet it falls under the "extreme use" exception or some other term...
There are a lot of videos of Ecoboost engines being put on a dyno.

update, dealer replaced engine free of charge, the #4 bearing spun, this dealer has replaced 3 other engines for this very same problem, but on another note his truck made 290HP before it went south, and the dyno shop made 610HP on a stock motor echo, but it had larger injectors, larger turbos and water meth injection, not bad for a 6 cylinder with factory motor internals

Wow, 4 EcoBoost engine replacements at just one dealership already? That would make me think twice about buying a vehicle with that engine. Numbers may be impressive but it seems weak in dependability. Thatís my opinion of course.

Iím glad your friend didnít have to pay for a new engine.

the thought is the bearing tolerance is too small at that position, the engineers scooped the engines and off they went to find out, prob just a few engines are affected not all of them

Just saw this thread...Ford did a Dyno test (actually used the dyno to put 100,000 MI on the EcoBoost motor before putting the motor to other tests) PLUS there are a slew of videos showing EcoBoost dyno tests....

I wonder what the power potential is for this engine. I'm glad somebody is willing to use their truck to find out. Happy for the guy that ford is stepping up to replace.
