In a way I would like to see the 4.6L be used as the 5.4L in the T-series would look like more of a significant upgrade. At the same time the 4.6L doesnt have much torque at all which is a necessity in a V8.
The mustang pushes peak power of 240kw yet it only has 430 nm of torque. 5 less than the 220kw XR8. So the 4.6L motor doesnt exactly have that much more torque than the 6 and wouldnt if you pushedthe same peak power out of the 6 the power/Torque ratio would be better for the 6.
So I guess the most Viable option would be the singe and double OHC 5.4L V8s be used and Maybe even a 6.0L stroker for the GT/GTHO.
Definately NO SUPERCHARGER for a GT/GTHO. Sure, bring the Mustang with a supercharger, put a Turbocharger on the IL6 (thats a Must!) but keep our top of the range 8's natually aspirated.
If you want it supercharged go talk to herrod.
