Thumbs up 5.4 Litre cammer

Hi Paul;

That is the same motor used in the US for the F-series trucks. An informant who works for Tickford has stated that the 5.4 is the engine currently undergoing testing in AU mules.

From what I can gather, the 5.4L is an iron block motor. The versions fitted to F-series trucks carry the alloy SOHC heads. The version fitted to the 2000 model SVT Cobra Mustang R was the same block, but with the DOHC alloy heads borrowed from the 4.6L Mustang Cobra. Yes you are right about the power output. SVT claimed 1/4 mile times of 12.9 seconds for the Cobra R 'Stang.

Now all Ford needs to do is shoehorn one of these into a Falcon, and put a GT badge on it.....

That 385Hp and 385Ft/lbs is way underrated, they nearly pull that much at the wheels on US dynos (376.1RWHP@5500Rpm and 385.9@4500RPM RWTQ - Motor Trend Mag)
So in actual fact they make around 430Hp and 440ftlbs of torque (12.5% drivetrain loss) or 320Kw and 600Nm of torque :D:D

Makes that LS1 look puny :eek::eek:

I doubt they will be that powerful in Aussie trim though:(


And Muscle Mustang, Fast Ford Mag got 12.3 1/4mile from one I think.

Something tells me you're spot on the money Martin... :(

I think the new 8 will be good, but I don't think she'll be that good...

I think that HSE2 mentioned in another thread that the new 5.4 is not the same motor thats currently around.Tho that could mean it's a variant of that same engine but new block re the all alloy.Sounds Awwwwsome tho as Iv'e said before i wish it was 5.8.:wink2:

HSE2 sounds correct i think. It will still be a pretty big verhaul i believe. However, there is still the possibilty that the "new" 5.4 l v8 is "all new" It should be all alloy and does boast 3 valves and VCT. there is a brief article on BON (oops i mentioned those 3 letters) about the current and future 5.4l under "engine news"

We need to hassle robert lane for more news! he knows what we want to know!
