What transmission is in the new ecoboost sport?
« on: December 15, 2017, 01:06:11 AM »
Is Ford using the 6F55?
If so, we might be seeing aftermarket upgrades soon.

Yes, 6F55.
2007 Ford Edge SEL, Powerstop F/R Brake Kit, TXT LED 6000K Lo & Hi Beams, W16W LED Reverse Bulbs, 3BSpec 2.5w Map Lights, 5W Cree rear dome lights, 5W Cree cargo light, DTBL LED Taillights

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

F150 and Mustang are a bigger market.  SHO has always been after thought.  Just going by previous history.

True, but don't forget MKS, XSPORT, MKT, and Flex along with the various GM lines.

If the trans got handled then I'm sure we'd have PTU and axle failure following closely behind anyway.

Honestly, I've been very impressed with the robustness of the 6F55 and as long as trans torque management isn't set on murder, I think they will generally last quite a while even at some pretty stout power levels as long as high quality fluids are used.
