New six related to 4.6/5.4?

Does anyone know if the new six is any relation to the new V8's?

Doing the old "minus two cylinders"?

Thus from the 4.6 bore/stroke you would get 3.5 and from the 5.4 you would get 4.0L V6. Power output would be simular to the V8's minius the capacity. Scince this has often been done in the past, and I doubt ford is going to blow big dollars in a V6 for a Australian car I think it might be likely for the new 6..

Is there currently a V6 based off the V8's in the USA?

Personally I think they should use a V8 3.9/4.0 block and 24 valve heads, but I think thats dreaming a little too much.

The 3.8L OHV V6 thats used in the Mustang is basically a 5.0L Windsor V8 with 2 cylinder missing....

I thought the V6 was OHC? I thought the 4.6 was a modular engine and the 3.8 v6 was casted from the same block?

If I'm correct, those 3.8 V6's have been quite troublesome in the US where (I think) it is used in the Taurus along side the 3.0 V6.

They had head gasket problems with them in FWD cars, but with RWD cars they have been fine apparently (?)
