Hey, Eco Boost Owners, my guys are getting clever and I’m loving it!

I was nosing around my EE department over the weekend, all by my self, and I came across this. It appears to be the Lab View driven programmer and tester for a new Eco Boost family of tuners code named “Derringer”…it’s a hide out device that fits inline and requires no reflash of your ECU.

It senses new things, makes more refined decisions and uses our Active Safety, fail safe system. The surprise is…the Derringer project is further along than I thought!

Maybe I'm revealing my inner Nerd but the Derringer is going to kick ass! The circuit board is in the anodized billet fixture on the bench, in front of the test rig. Yes, the crew at Banks designs and CNC machines our own aluminum billet electronic test fixtures...we hot rod Everything!

I've been turbocharging since the 60's and I've been a Geek since the 50's but it still turns me on to see my name on a circuit board...that we designed! Especially when the prime intent is to make horsepower.

Here are some current Ford projects in front of my home shop. The Eco Boost is our Banks 3.5 L development mule. When we've finished with everything there it's on to my Marauder which is getting a Twin Turbo Coyote using our new CenterLine Turbo family.
