Live Chat with Ford V6 Engine Program Manager Jim Mazuchowski

Ford V6 Engine Program Manager Jim Mazuchowski is accustomed to looking at engines and engine parts after durability testing. But this one is a little bit different. First of all, the tear down will take place live in front of the public at the 2011 North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Jan. 15, 2011 at 11 a.m. EST. Second, this isn’t any engine. It’s the F-150 EcoBoost™ engine that has endured multiple torture tests over the past several months. Torture tests that create the equivalent of 160,000 miles and 10 years of rugged use.

Join Jim here at 2:00 p.m. EST on Saturday, Jan. 15, 2011, for the live chat after the tear down.

Jim and his team are responsible for all the new V6 gas engines under development at Ford, including the naturally aspirated, EcoBoost and flex fuel engines. The F-150 adds the 3.7-liter V6 and the 3.5-liter EcoBoost truck engine to the 2011 lineup.  The scope of his work is something Jim enjoys – whether it’s design and development, or some of the challenges related to the dollars-and-cents side of the automotive industry.

“I really enjoy the variety of tasks, the pressure and urgency involved, along with the great people I get to work with,” he said. “The work we do directly impacts the customer and is key to Ford’s fuel economy and sustainability strategy as well as quality and customer satisfaction.”

Since coming to Ford in 1988, Jim has held several positions that helped prepare him for his job in engine program management. Those roles included helping launch a series of V8 engines and running manufacturing operations at the Cleveland Casting Plant, as well as product design, development work and strategic planning.

Jason Sammut i think its aout time you guys use what we have down here in OZ, a turbocharged Inline 6 that produces 310kw &565Nm of torque,with plenty of room to make more power, stop using thse V6's and get a real 6 cylinder into your cars.
