Do you think Ford will ever design these type of engines?

That's cool, If it lowers production costs and increases fuel economy then yes.
 
i got a friend whose an engineer at honda there in the us he told me a while back that he was working with some ferrari boys in developing some kind ofnew engine component parts ill try to get more to see if they are headed that way.
 
Coates valves are the future man. Like totally. They are going to use them on the motors that run on water.

Did you guys actually read that article? The guy is full of it he doesn't know what he is talking about. He says "The system has been in use in F1 racing for some time," That is just plain wrong. F1 uses pneumatic valve springs with camshafts so there really is nothing in common with an all pneumatic system. So which is it? Does it have cams and pneumatic valve springs or no cams and air cylinder operated valves? I doubt the latter. Electric solenoid operated valves is much more likely than pneumatic operated valves because of the complex valving and lines needed to operate that many cylinders.
