1.6L EcoBoost Standard Engine Kit 350bhp
The 350bhp kit has been developed using a Turbo Technics hybrid turbo, it is effectively still a standard engine with the addition of this hybrid turbo.
The EcoBoost 1.6L SBD 350bhp kit is fully programmed and ready to use. As you can see from the graph below, this specification shows a significant improvement over the standard turbo. The turbo that has been developed and designed between ourselves and Turbo Technics. The exhaust turbo housing has been recast to match the original Fiesta design but is internally completely different to allow for the larger internals. Our aim was to develop a turbo with the highest horsepower level but without lag. We believe we have managed to achieve this and the results from the dyno and drivers that have used the kit prove it. After extensive testing and development on the dyno and in-car, all upgraded turbos are now supplied with electronic actuator/servo control. This has dramatically improved the accuracy of boost levels and the speed of which it can reach target boost. It also makes it makes it quicker to change the target boost curve. The engines are also smoother in power delivery.
We have added a set of secondary port injectors, this gave us several advantages; it meant we didn’t have to overstress the DI system, it allows us to control the exhaust gas temperature better and also the ability to produce further power at a later date.
The kit comprises of the MBE9A6 DI ECU and wiring harness, the same as in the standard kit with the addition of the port injector rail and injectors that mount between either the standard plenum or aftermarket Jenvey plenum.
When you purchase this kit, you simply fit everything to the standard engine, choose your pedal sensor*, then choose optional extras depending on your requirements and your engine is ready to use. We include 1 hour of free Teamviewer to link to your laptop, this is purely to set the throttle pedal travel limits to match the amount of throttle pedal travel you would like in your car, also the electronic waste gate limit.
Once the engine has been started up, the MBE9A6 DI ECU has full wide band lambda control, knock strategy and adaptive knock strategy to maintain and fine tune the engine, so there is no need to do any set up or rolling road work.

We have designed and developed a wiring harness specifically for this application, which is made in full Raychem military spec wiring, this harness can then have additional features added via its interface connector as and when required by the user.
The pedal sensor adapter loom is supplied as part of the kit and is 500mm long. We have standard off the shelf versions LM9A6-A-P-01, which allow you to connect our recommended choice of pedal sensor EGAS-P-01-SH. We regularly use this pedal sensor because it is ideal for converting a cable throttle set up to EGAS/Electronic throttle due to the fact that it can be mounted anywhere in the vehicle, then you can connect your standard throttle cable to it and make your own mounting to hold the sensor in place as opposed to replacing your pedal box. If you already have your own pedal sensor, please confirm before ordering, the part number of the pedal sensor and what production car it comes from. We will then check the MBE list of already calibrated pedal sensors to see if it has already been done. If not you will have to send us the pedal sensor and there will be a small charge of £50 + VAT to calibrate.
If you intend on using the engine for circuit racing or high continuous stress levels, we recommend you have the block upgraded along with rods and pistons, which will add durability to the engine.

MBE-MAP-KIT-3-CAN is a mapping kit for MBE CAN ECUs, translates the information from your high speed USB port to the CAN data required by the ECU. This hardware can be used as a simple diagnostic tool to analyse the ECU, update software, transfer whole ECU chip files, modify & edit maps. Live Map can be used on MBE9A4 ECUs onwards. The adapter MBE-MAP-KIT-3-CAN-ADP3 is used to link the MBE985 & MBE973 to SBD Wiring harnesses, you will need one of these to use the above mapping kits. We’ve fitted the small 4-way superseal connector to all our harnesses because it is neat & compact and allows us to link & power other MBE systems together.

The LMBDA-04 wide band lambda sensor, it is currently the most accurate & toughest sensor produced by Bosch to cope with harsh environment & is a significant improvement over previous versions. If you have purchased the standard engine complete with downpipe, it will quite often equipped with this sensor as standard and provided it is in perfect condition with its original connector still in place, it can be used.
