Does that article say that both the 4.6 and 5.4 are 3 valvers :hrm:
What about a 4 valve. (32 valve V8 would have been a good marketing tool)

Watch out H**den the Fords are finally coming !!!

Interesting to see that there is no reference made regarding single cam or twin cams per bank.

3 valve is definitely SOHC. 4 valve DOHC engines are also coming, for the Tickford cars.

Looks good. I saw a post on Blue Oval News forums saying that that the 3 valve 5.4 produces at least 300 hp (225 Kw). The post was from a guy who worked in the Windsor Plant. Said the engine was a smooth as silk. He also mentioned that it had an iron block.

  • Barra 182 - 4.0 DOHC 24 Valve Inline 6
  • Barra 220 - 5.4 SOHC 24 Valve V8
  • Barra 240T - 4.0 DOHC 24 Valve Turbo Charged Inline 6
  • Boss 260 - 5.4 DOHC 32 Valve V8
  • Boss 290 - 5.4 DOHC 32 Valve V8

Sort of off topic - but over at the Aus LS1 site they reckon that the VY GTS will have 355kw. I hope Ford haven't played their hand too early.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

I think hsv thought if the hoey has 350kw they would go a bit better by 355 how lame.
