Engine changes?

Ok here is my 2 cents. Yes I agree with most of you. My 94 5.8L would out pull my 00 5.4L however the engine design changes are not just because Ford wanted to make things difficult. You have to take into account of the Federal Government not to mention the people bashing the Excursion (like the H2 and Tahoe XL are better). Each year regulations are getting tougher and tougher, both fuel economy and emissions. Changing to Modular engines are suppose to be better in both aspect. The 3 Valve is expected on all Modular engines 4.6, 5.4 and 6.8l. As for the 5.0L Modular I have read that many times and have yet to see one. I have driven the new 5.4L 3V in the 04 F150 it is one hell of a truck. Should be a real seller.

As for the chain drive 4 bangers. Your wish will be granted. Look at the 2.3L Ranger from 2001, and that engine will be moving to other vehicles in the future..

Andy-
The 5.0L modular is supposed to be a crate engine and I don't know if they are actually making them or just had it in the works. Saw an article on it but can't remember where. I guess one has to get a hold of SVT to get one or a Ford Motorsport dealer. The engine is a complete job with computer and is designed to go into project vehicles.

OK that may be, I have seen a few claims of the 5.0L Mod but have asked the Mustang development guys and they have not seen one. So the SVT Create motor makes more sense..

I like my 5.4 just the way it is. It does a great job towing 7500# of TT.
Maybe some day Ford will make a more intermediate engine between the 5.4 and 6.8. But I agree, a straight 6 would be nice.

a while back i read somewere that the modular engines used by ford are lighter and have fewer moving parts than a traditional pushrod engine. fewer parts means less parts that can wear out or break. they are easier to manufacture and cheaper to build, they also burn cleaner than the older powerplants.
