Ecoboost Technical Blogs

This page is the new home to Stus latest technical blogs on engine management systems. This time he is looking at the more modern Bosch MED17 system as fitted to vehicles such as the 2013 onwards Ford Focus ST and RS vehicles powered by the 2 and 2.3 litre Ford Ecoboost engines.

Whilst the strategies under discussion are the Ford proprietary logic, the basic nuts and bolts can be traced back to the earlier vehicles such as the MK7 Fiesta ST which ran a very similar platform, albeit it significantly less complex than the Ford HDFX version.

Stick the kettle on... its a complex one!
