YAN Engines recently completed a D-Cycle™ modification of the Ford Ecoboost 1.0L engine. The Ecoboost is one of the most fuel-efficient production engines in the world, awarded the International Engine of the Year “Best Engine Under 1.0L” award for six consecutive years.
When modified with D-Cycle™ pistons, the Ecoboost achieved 20% more fuel efficiency and exceeded the stock torque and power output.
YAN Engines retrofitted a Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement (MTVR) convoy truck engine with D-Cycle™ technology for the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC). The USMC’s program goal is to improve the fuel efficiency of the 33,000-truck MTVR fleet by 20%.
When retrofitted with D-Cycle™ technology, the engine started and held idle over 40 times and is expected to have increased brake thermal efficiency of 20% across the drive cycle.
