3.0 Ecoboost in a supercar?

http://www.autoblog.com/2009/08/27/f...slightly-rich/

Quote from the article:
"...mild-steel space frame, integral four-point roll cage, Getrag six-speed with Quaife LSD, mid-mounted traverse 3.0-liter Ford Duratec V6 fitted with twin-turbochargers and a G.R.P. (a.k.a. fiberglass) body."

Later on it says:
"The aforementioned 3.0-liter V6 with twin-turbos produces a glorious 450 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. Redline is 7,200 rpm (turbocharged engines don't need lofty revs) and peak torque occurs at 5,250 rpm."

So, anyone doing a 3.0L SVT Contour or similar swap, please be advised, I expect results!

And to use the Getrag to get a 3.2 second 0-60 run?!

No.
It is the Duratec, this is just a Noble. They have been twin turboing the 3.0 Duratec for a while now.

In fact, Rosen himself floated the idea of using Ford's new EcoBoost direct-injected twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6, uncorked to the tune of 600 hp. But that's far in the future.

from http://www.autoblog.com/2009/08/27/f...slightly-rich/

this car sounds pretty sweet...
