5.4 Potential

I know that the 5.4 coming here will be different to the current stang engine but what power are they getting with just bolt ons at the wheels?

I don't think Ford has ever used this engine before. Isnt it the same as the all-alloy 5.4L which was sueprcharged in the GT40 concept?

The only DOHC 5.4L i know was the triton which was cast iron.

The Mustang uses the 4.6 litre V8 - same as that delivered over here. The only Mustang to use the 5.4 was last year's Cobra R which put out 280kW in muffled street legal trim and 300kW without exhausts (race ready). Last year's Cobra R was limited edition only. I believe there have been further revisions of the 5.4 since this so who knows... This year's has a supercharged 4.6 and has been made into a main stream model. The SVT F-150 Lightening uses a supercharged version of the 5.4 although I can't remember the outputs - anybody else know these? And yes - the new GT40 prototype has a supercharged 5.4 in it! Don't know whether the blower will fit under the bonnet of a normal car though...

Another important thing to note is that Tickford will be responsible for the high output versions of this engine which is rumoured to be 300-330kw.

The yellow Cobra RA at the recent motorshows had a 310kW NA 4.6l DOHC V8. 300-330 will be easy from a 5.4l version.

Mustang Cobra R had about 290kw and 520nm. As I said before it has the triton V8, whihc was cast iron. It is expensive to modify becasue it was not orignally intended for performance applications, hence the reason it was not mass produced for mustang. The 5.4L we are getting is not trialled, it is All-alloy, the first all-alloy 5.4L Ford has made, and it will probably be based on the All-alloy 5.4L which was in the GT40 concept car.

i assume that means that we will be the first to see this engine in a production car. mmmmmm, hope we don't end up being the guinea pigs, ironing out all the teathing probs. etc.

It is these factors which lead me to beleive that this 5.4 engine that Falcon will be using is a 4.6L with a stroker crank to yield the extra cubes.

There are only 2 states to be in:
Western Australia, and pissed.
