5.4 cubic inches

on the 5.4 it shows that it is 329 CI. Is this engine actually based on the 302 block and the extra 27 CI comes from the heads. It's on a 2001 F150.

Generally considered a 330 C.I.D.


The 5.4 Triton...4.6's too for that matter share nothing with the 302. Completely different architecture. Over Head Cam engines. Heads are massive aluminum castings.

mrm1957: the current modular motors often referred to as a mod
motor is totaly new to the ford family, but not to say that a cammer is new to ford. The old 427 is a legend in our time. The
current cammer is a whole new animal in the ford stable. These
mods 4.6,5.4,6.8 V-10 are modular as they share pistons, cranks,cam designs, valvetrain etc. Even the 4's & V-6's share the mod theory in essence, a 4 cyl is half of a 4.6 V-8. The V-6 is a 4.6 with the rear two cylinders choped off. The 5.4 is a 4.6 with a longer stroke. The V-10 is 5.4 with two cylinders grafted on the back of the block. Henceforth, modular, now if memory serves me correct, all mod motors have a crank driven oil pump. Which is virtualy bulletproof by design. The heads are a mechnical work of art, from port design to valve gemotery. Not to mention the ability to rev the valvetrain without floating the valves or getting asthmatic at high rpm's. [the previous weaknesses of the old
pushrods are valve floating,port design, etc.] I have seen some engine builders claim their buildup can achieve in excess of 500+hp & still remain a decent daily driver or very streetable.
The old pushrods have served ford admirably for years.

I'll stick to a Windsor stroker. The aftermarket has been very good to the "old fashioned" pushrod crowd. New is not always improved. New does tend to sell vehicles which is the name of the game.

They are the way of the future.
I am not knocking the 1950's designed pushrod V8. It has served us well, and the power that my 5.0 has in the old Stang is awesome!!
But , like everything, eventially something new and better comes along. (Mercedes has had OHC V8's since the early 70's). I know that Ford had the 427 SOHC engine, but it wasn't mass produced.
My 5.4L does a good job considering that it is only 330ci.
If Ford would come out with a 6.6L (400ci) Mod motor, that would be great!!
