    Time and time again, Boosted OEM solutions work around the 9.5:1 compression ratio, 12:1 is too much.

    Morgan says the engine runs a 9.5:1 compression ratio with a 7,500 rpm redline and 12 psi of max boost. He also notes that the biggest challenge with the DCT was getting smooth shifts with an engine that flows so much air. He says shifts are under 100 milliseconds, but under light loads, it shifts like any automatic. He also says that for the future, Ford is looking at how to improve fuel economy with high-performance engines.
    This is what we all suspected.
    History is a statement, the future is a question.

    Mine is 8.8:1 but is designed to run more boost and timing.
