Was sitting here watching it with the laptop up to my face and my girlfriend says, "Are you watching Ford porn?"

...yes I am....yes I am.

My dad is a technician at a Ford dealership, he's been there for quite a while now. This reminds me a lot of the old VHS videos from the 80's and 90's that Ford would send out to all of the tech's to give them updates on new engines or technologies that were coming up.

Watching that video kinda makes me want to dig through the boxes of tapes he still has, but then I'll have to find a VCR.....

I would really like to see it for the Zetec, especially since I've had mine apart like that so many times before.

Its interesting though at the end the showed the firing... does it really fire the injector before the intake valves open? It looks like the injectors are duty cycling while the intake valves are closed.

I see what you mean. Maybe it's just the animation but I don't know. I wish someone who knows more about this would jump in!
