Does anyone know for sure how much power this new motor makes? I would guess it would definitely be more than the current OHC V8 made in that factory. So to answer my own question.....lots!

"The Barra, a new sedan built on Ford of Australia's Falcon platform, will benefit from the first batch of 3-valve engines, which feature displacements of either 4.6L or 5.4L. The Barra is scheduled to debut in October, followed by a truck application of the engine."



Does that mean were ALSO getting 4.6?:oo1:

I think the article was saying that the Modular 3 valve is avalible to be made in both 4.6 and 5.4.. Not that the falcon is going to get a choice..

the 4.6 will go into crown vics, trucks, etc etc..
