How the Engines are Made:
I have created the engines using Automation and specification documents of the real engines that I could find online. However, I don't plan to make the 3D models for the engines because I don't have the skills, resources, or time to do so. All I do for this mod is copy the relative engine data from the Automation Export to the corresponding BeamNG.Drive engine file. The engines won't look different, but they will have close to the correct performance. Also, the engine sounds are just the sound exported from Automation, so they aren't the real-life engine's sounds, but they do sound somewhat similar.

Things to Point Out:
  • For every engine that is in this mod, I have included a pre-set configuration for the vehicle that the engine would have been in. These configurations should have close to accurate wheels/tires size, transmission gear ratios, and differential final drive ratios. These are just made by using BeamNG.drive's part selector and tuning sliders.
  • I have created the engines so that you can still use BeamNG.Drive's in-game engine modifications (ex. engine blocks, forced induction, nitro, etc.) on the modded engines.
  • For Ford engines with forced induction, I have created them to work with the forced induction slot type so they can be put on all the engines available for that vehicle.
  • I added an "unreal" level of cooling performance for radiators and oil coolers for certain vehicles because the default cooling parts in BeamNG.Drive aren't good enough for some engine configurations with forced induction.
  • I also added tuneable transmissions so I could get the correct transmission type and gear ratios for the pre-set configurations.
  • Automation currently doesn't support diesel engines or engines with superchargers so I currently can't currently make any Ford engines that use those. Also, Automation doesn't support low enough engine compression ratios so I can't make the Model T's or Model A's engines.

Future Engines/Plans:
  • 5.4L Triton V8 (UGLY123)
  • 1.0L EcoBoost I3 (requested by NH3107)
  • 1975 Mustang 2.3L I4 (DeepFriedPizzaSauce24)
  • 1975 Mustang 4.9L V8 (DeepFriedPizzaSauce24)
  • 7.3L IDI V8 (requested by Friedrich1987) (when/if Automation supports diesel)
  • Miami Coyote supercharged V8 (requested by limapalon) (when Automation supports it)
  • Naturally Aspirated diesel engine(s) if/when Automation support it (requested by TMccanna)
  • Shelby Cobra 427 V8
  • 5.2L VooDoo V8
  • Lima I4
  • "Eleanor" Mustang
  • EcoBoost engine family
  • Most popular Ford Mustang engines
  • Ford 2021 Bronco V6
  • Ford 2005 GT supercharged V8 (when Automation supports it)
  • Ford Lightning supercharged V8 (when Automation supports it)
  • Shelby GT500 supercharged V8 (when Automation supports it)
  • Ford 2003 SVT Mustang supercharged V8 Terminator (when Automation supports it)
  • Ford 2010 Shelby Raptor supercharged Boss V8 (when Automation supports it)
  • Ford 2012 Shelby Baja 700 supercharged Boss V8 (when Automation supports it)
  • Ford Powerstroke V8 (if/when Automation supports it)
  • Maybe some Ford racing engines (like NASCAR, Cobra Jet, etc.)
  • Suggestions from you the user. Please note if I take suggestions they will be limited to:
    • Engines to add
    • BeamNG.Drive vehicles to add engines to
    • BeamNG.Drive vehicles to add the unreal performance radiators to
    • Tuneable transmissions to add
    • BeamNG.Drive vehicles to add tuneable transmissions to

Known Issues:
  • **Please note: I am not a developer, just an average user who likes Fords. Everything I have done for this mod was learned by either searching things up online or by learning with trial-and-error. I work on this during my free time so don't expect regular updates or fast responses.
  • All the engines are typically off by on average about 20 hp and lb-ft of the real Ford engines (if you happen to look at torque chart UI in BeamNG.Drive to see if the engines are accurate). When I make the engines in Automation, they are very close to the correct numbers, but I can't figure out why they change that much when exported to BeamNG.Drive.
  • Zagdima's 2015 Ford Raptor mod has wheels with very low grip and very stiff suspensions. To fix this I had to change the wheels to use BeamNG.Drive's wheels and added a mod to be able to tune the suspensions. However, the front suspension and hubs have very low breaking points when using BeamNG.Drive wheels. The front wheels seem to break/fall off from little contact. When using BeamNG.Drive's wheels for the rear, the brakes spawn through the wheels/tires (doesn't affect driving) Also, when using my mod for the suspension the rear leaf springs are spawning through the tailgate (doesn't affect driving).
  • Engines have unrealistic startups (as mentioned by 11'tocks)
  • 2014 EcoBoost 1.0 I3 turbocharged engine is supposed to make a constant amount of torque from 1400 through 4500 RPM. However, there is no way to correctly implement this in Automation. I've tried to make the torque curve as flat as I could, but obviously, the numbers will not be accurate.

Nice thought and collection of engines. Lack of tuning and almost all fall off at the same RPM that is not accurate and the sheer size of the mod really hinder the desire to enjoy it.

Thank you for the review. I'm not sure what you mean by lack of tuning because all my engines have the same amount of customization in the parts selector as the default engines. The issue with the RPM fall off is where the engine data ends in the .json file, which is similar to the real-life max RPM of the engine and different for each engine. I agree that the mod size is very large, however, that is due to the variety of engine sounds exported from Automation. If I can find a way to reduce the mod size while keeping the variety of engine sounds, I will do so.

I appreciate you adding support for some of our mods out there, I've had fun using the motor in the RS200!

Would love to see 6.0 and a 6.7 Powerstroke motors
JITTER
JITTER
I would like to make them, but unfortunately, Automation currently doesn't support diesel engines so I can't make those engines as of now. Once Automations supports it, I plan to add all the Powerstroke engines and other diesel engines made by Ford.

Modder said that there was a 5.4L ford V8 in mod. There isn't
JITTER

I have not added the 5.4L V8 yet. It is a part of the list of future engines yet to be added.

I don't know why, but when I download a file and the download reaches 1 gigabyte, it gives me a network error

It's great to see the 300 I6 in the list, I have been waiting for it a long time, this is by far one of my favourites mods!
JITTER

I'll make sure to move the 300 I6 up in priority since multiple have requested it now. I'm glad you enjoy this mod, I appreciate it.

its great but I don't see the 300ci 4.9L inline 6 or the 444ci 7.3L idi diesel please add these
JITTER
JITTER
I can add the 4.9L Inline 6 to the list of requested engines. You won't find any diesel engines in this mod because Automation doesn't support diesel engines. I will make sure to add the 7.3L IDI diesel when they do support it.

love this mod never expected it to grow so much i downloaded it when it was first released on the repo for beamng

Thanks for the interest! Yeah, it's unfortunate that the BeamNG.Drive repo has a maximum upload size restriction.
