Ford has released some new details about their 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that will be used the Daytona Prototype that will compete in the 2014 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship Series.

According to Ford Racing director Jamie Allison, the engine is production-based and has a production block and production heads. However, it has been "adapted for racing applications with the racing controls."

His sentiments were echoed by Ford Racing engine engineer David Simon who said the production engineering staff, that works on production engines like the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 and 5.0-liter Coyote V8, have access to the racing program and collaborate with the racing program. This benefits both production and racing engines as engineers can take what they learn in one program and transfer it to another.
