Hahaha Good O'l "Car guy" kicks in the *** To get things rolling. I just realized that focus is parked In the spot numbered 007 Very cool! lol
That isn't exactly true I thought I would get you in the hole and I did, just not as much as I expected and you passed me quickly. On the other hand mine was a bone stock 95 motor with around 175,000 miles on it at the time.Alan you know it is not my project.
If JW could not handle the tune, how could you? Prove me wrong put a 5.4L DOHC in your car!
DirtyDog thought the same and lost before I added 40 hp. Sorry but my $150/ yr insurance prohibits me from racing.
Out of respect, I really did not want to mention it but you forced my hand. Sorry guy but you have the dubious distinction to have the only 4.6L MN12 that lost to a 5.4L MN12.That isn't exactly true I thought I would get you in the hole and I did, just not as much as I expected and you passed me quickly. On the other hand mine was a bone stock 95 motor with around 175,000 miles on it at the time.
That would be really cool on your 4 turbo car, you should do it.a 5.4 dohc fits as seen in the pics. Cant this car rip. it wouldnt even take that much cash for a simple swap. If you look around im sure a good running used 5.4dohc could be picked up for less than 1k. then build some custom manifolds or headers and no frame cutting would be needed.
yup it takes some serious capital to really get one going that is worth the effort...just look at the 2000 Cobra R engine.....one bad mother of an engine, yet the new 5.0L 4V in the 2011 mustang GT makes more power.....granted, there's not too many similarities between them, but cubic inch-for-cubic inch, a big bore modular with ported 4V heads would make more sense than trying to shoehorn a DOHC 5.4 even if its just for the fact that a performance intake manifold is nearly unobtainable
from a sheer power output perspective, it absolutely makes my point a valid one....exactly what progression of technology? just because it has variable cam timing? if you lock the timing of the camshafts to the upper RPM range (for sheer high-RPM power output), then there isnt much more to the newer engine---it has tremendous volumetric efficiency (> 100%)....that can't be done with a dedicated intake/exhaust manifold and custom camshafts on an older modular engine?? sure it can!......just takes time, money, and knowledge....the 2011 runs nearly 11:1 compression....that can't be done on an older mod motor? sure it can!...the 2011 runs oil squirters aimed at the bottom of the pistons for cooling......yes that helps, but the Cobra R didnt have them, it it made tons of power without them, and there are other things like coated piston tops and alcohol injection kits that can curb intake charge temperature upon the compression cycle.....the 2011 motor has a bigger bore, helping unshroud the intake valves....cant be done on a mod motor?....sure it can!...its called a big-bore "4.6", aka 5.0L mod motorI see where you're coming from, but that really isn't a valid point. The 2011 makes more power for one simple reason...progression of technology over a 10 year time period. The 2000 R engine made more power than any Mustang engine from 1990. It's the same reason you're seeing smaller engines making the power that V8's could only make at one time.
