Define "better". Because what one person considers better, may be considered a negative by someone else. :thumbsup:

IMHO, the 4.6L is a better engine for the following reason:

The whole engine is engineered a lot stronger than a 5.0L
OHC is better than OHV (Pushrods!! ICK!.... :zpuke:)

They seem to last forever

But are more expensive to modify :bawling:

But it still boils down to one's definition of "better". :D

Power?

Hello

With enough money you can make power from just about anything.

My Thunderbird street toy will have 306 & 3+1 trany.(85 coupe)
Edelbrock induction. maybe Weiand roots blower in the future.

I run the 351W & AOD in my 90 Factory stock oval track car.
(302HO as a back-up.)

This is mostly due that i have 3 of each & rules don't allow FI
I must even use a mechanical fuel pump.

I think it just preference. I have a 5.0L. So I am sticking with it. I know alot more about pushrod engines than I do about Modular motors. If I have a car or truck with a mod. motor in it, then I would probably be more preferential to them. May have a mod. motor car in the future real soon.

i think its prefrance as well. if you define better as far as mods, or power, or torque or something you may get a better answer

i had alot of 5.0 tbirds they have more lowend, but i'm really liking my 4.6 alot snappier up top. personally i like 4.6 little better, gas mileage is better. 5.0's had some problems, mainly head gaskets, and water pumps. i'm not bashing on them though like i said i owned some there both good motors. just put it this way ford all the way baby! :D

amen to fords :thumbsup: i have spent my life around carbs. i like being able to walk behind a car, or stick my head up by the stack of my tractor, then go back to the carb and adjust my fuel ratio with a $1.50 flatheat screwdriver. not some $450 thing i need to hook up to my friends $900 laptop. thats a pain. so i guess i cast my vote for 5.0. unless i can get ahold of one of those 4.6 carb manifolds from edelbrok. that would be [email protected]@$$

I see.Chances are they way your car sits right now the 03 V6 stang would beat up on your car.


When he gets all rowdy and talking about how much better Mustangs are than Tbirds and how they are faster just say,"Man,It's a Tbird for crying out loud.It is not meant to be fast."


At least thats what I say before I line up with anybody.
