5L V8 Focus

Did anyone see it in the latest Motor mag? I think that would be the only suitable FPV Focus!

Re: 5L V8 Focus

yes it is bored, and I mentioned somewhere else, if the 5.4 had the same 94mm stroke, it would give it 5.9L !!!! :-) Do ya think a 5.9L Focus would go alright?

Re: 5L V8 Focus

then again these things pop up all the time but we never see them take the opportunity, c'mon FPV make one, it may even raise a bit of hype over the Focus; cause damn it definately need some kind of boost.
cheers

Re: 5L V8 Focus

I some how doubt very highly they will make it cause it would blow the doors off the GT if they did. And that wouldn't be a very good look now would it.

Holy crap! I thought it was an N/A V8 they wedged in there (could've sworn that what it said in the articles and other photos) but this pic shows an S/C V8!

But I think the question on everyone's lips is... When do we see the V10 version?! :s6:
