SEMA 2017: Hotter Spark For 3.5 EcoBoost Engines

Ford EcoBoost Raptor owners looking to add a little more power to their twin-turbo engines now have an aftermarket ignition system that may just give your F-150 the boost it needs. Performance Distributors recently showed us its new line of Sultans of Spark ignition systems for Ford’s twin-turbo, 3.5-liter  EcoBoost engine family.

“As you know, the EcoBoost is a different ‘animal’ in the world of engines,” said Scott Sowards of Performance Distributors. “This created a few challenges in designing a new system for the twin-turbocharged V-6 engine.”

He said the company normally develops coil systems that are specifically geared not to lose spark on the top end of the RPM range. “Because the new 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost engine produces so much torque, we developed a new line of Sultans Of Spark Coils to produce more energy in the low- to midrange, which keeps it in the EcoBoost powerband.”

“The results are an extremely high energy spark in your twin-turbo combustion chamber,” Scott added. “Raptor owners will be able to feel improved acceleration, a smoother idle, and quicker starting.”

The new Sultans of Spark coil is designed to increase your vehicle’s voltage and because of the hotter spark, you may see a bit of a performance gain as well.

The S.O.S. coils are a direct replacement for the factory coils and do not require any special modifications. They will be available later this year. For more information on the entire line of Performance Distributors products, visit the company’s official website here.
