does anyone have any info on the new motors? are they going back to push rods, or is it a stroked modular? I keep seeing 5L/400HP, but no real info on the motor itself.

Everything I've heard is that the 5.0 is an all-new design all-aluminum DOHC that shares nothing with previous mod-motors (including the 5.0 cammer used in the FR500 race cars), and the V6 is a tuned version of the 3.7L all aluminum DOHC that's currently used in some Lincolns.

I don't see Ford *ever* making another pushrod gas motor. OHC allows them to make the same hp with less displacement (although at the cost of low-end torque). This allows them to push the hp that people want while still giving the fuel economy that the CAFE standards require.

I posted two of them, cause one was orginaly out here, and the other one was posted in the 04' forums where I usually go. Just wanted to see if I would get new people commenting that I don't usually see.

Different feed back, that's all

has ford even released info on the exact specs or is all this info coming from insiders to confuse the stang fans every forum i go it seems as if some one has to ask this same question.. i dont mind what ford does because i know it will be something good and highly doubt the ecoboost will replace the v8 in gt standard all i just want to see after the 5 years of the sn10 what the new structure of the body will look like *FINGERS CROSSED* I hope and prey to god they retro the fox3 or maybe even the fox2 or 1
