Wow... pretty cool. Would love to put one of those into a '96-97 t-bird
On the other hand, I'm already wondering if I should buy my SHO at the end of the lease and see what a 3.5L Ecoboost can really do. With a tune and some very mild intake and turbo upgrades, they can push near 500HP. It would be interesting to see what they can do with some REAL work

Awesome engine. I was thinking about doing something different and going Ford power for this project since LS powered cars are a dime a dozen.
I was thinking a crate coyote engine would be interesting. Aluminum block and HP/TQ that is right with teh current LS engines. Only downside is they are pretty big because of the over head cams, they take up quite a bit more space than the LS engines.
Also the Coyote engine management system hasnt been unlocked so there are no cheap engine management systems available.
This engine on the other hand....small footprint, way more power, no engine computer management system to worry about.....
Only downside is the extra weight from the iron block vs the alum blocks of the Coyote and LS
Cant wait to slap a nice size blue oval sticker on the side of this car
