How can you say that? There have beem 500+rwhp 5.4 4v N/A motors running around. I say 5.4 4v, or 3v. Pro Charger F-1RErrr... how much would it cost you to stroke a 3v 5.4? And in the end, how much performance are you talking about?
The 4v 5.4 is an incredible engine... with massive boost. N/A it doesn't really perform with all the extra weight.
I say do a realistic cost comparison. There was someone on here recently talking about the 3v 5.4, there were links to forums threads about the subject. Engine swaps aren't cheap at the end of the day: if you're gonna do one, make damn well certain you get what you want.
I'd be curious to see where this information is coming from. The Triton engines were found in trucks, where it doesn't make any sense to have forged internals.The tritions i heard had forged internals.
Easy, what's the added weight of a 4v 5.4 vs. a 3v 4.6?How can you say that? There have beem 500+rwhp 5.4 4v N/A motors running around. I say 5.4 4v, or 3v. Pro Charger F-1R
Forged crank != Forged internals... just ask us N/A Cobra guys, lol.n 2004, Ford introduced a new 3-valve SOHC head, improving horsepower and torque over the older 2-valve SOHC version. This engine also includes Variable Cam Timing, and first appeared in Australian Ford models . The engine is built in Windsor, Ontario at Ford's Essex Engine plant.
It has a cast iron engine block and aluminum cylinder heads. It uses multi-port fuel injection, has roller finger followers, fracture-split forged powder metal connecting rods, forged steel crankshaft and the intake manifold is assembled of reinforced plastic.
Output is 300 hp (224 kW) at 5000 RPM with 365 ft·lbf (495 Nm) of torque at 3750 RPM.
The Gt500 differs from the GT in only the engine, a 5.4 4v and the transmission, a tr-6060, and a few half assed suspension choices. And everyone says the GT500 would be damn perfect if it wasn't so nose heavy in all it's handling. But goshdarnit, throw an uprated supercharger on that beast and you're set for anything your rubber can handle. Taking that supercharger away? And you've got a what? Something like the Camaro or Challenger in execution?I don't know, I see a 5.4 4v, with a seriously built engine, and a single stage kit as nice ass car.
