I had to watch it a couple times, but the wet belt looks like it is really a chain that got poor CGI. If you look carefully there is a second chain that drives the submerged variable displacment oil pump.

Ford has always had a thing for cast in manifolds, remember the old Falcon six?

Interesting stuff? Was looking at a new Ford Hybrid last week, water jacketed exhaust coming off the head.
