    I haven't heard anything new. I could see it debuting at the Detroit autoshow, but they could just as simply give it a silent release.

    I’m oddly SUPER excited about this.

    No reason it doesn’t belt out near, or over, 500 hp and 500 lb/ft.

    What an effing brute. A work trucks dream power plant!

    Hate to burst everyone's bubble but don't expect too much performance wise from this engine. It's designed as a replacement for the out going V10 6.8l engine in the Super Duty trucks (250 up) and fleet vehicles. Not sure if it's been mentioned but it is a 60* block. There is no heat treat among the machinery being installed which translates to a cast crank. Both of these are less than desirable performance wise but for what the engine is designed to replace it will be more than capable.

    Interesting. I had not heard anything about is being a 60 degree block. That doesn't make much sense considering it would need a balance shaft, which would go against the theme of making it cheaper. Also, 60 degree V8s are typically found in cars where engine bay space is tight. That's not really the case for the trucks we're talking about here.

    Yeah, they want to get the physical size of the engine down for some reason even though it is going in the large trucks and so on. Compared to the mod V10 (which is made in the plant behind ours) it is tiny. The heads resemble an FE head from the old days except the valve cover rail is entirely part of the head it's self. Massive intake valves and it looks like very well contoured intake and exhaust ports. There is still quite a bit of machinery to go in before production starts. Not positive but I thought that the line was supposed to be in by September but that is looking doubtful.

    So your not going to see this in light dookie trucks or Mustangs.

    Never say never, one could always hope (possible reason for keeping it's footprint down???) but in this present form nothing is scheduled for the light duty truck. Definitely no mustang that I've heard of at all.

    Well I stand corrected, it is not a 60* block. I had heard this off the plant floor and should have known better. Finally got to see one on part of the line last night and it's a typical 90* block. Sorry for the disinformation. Looks like they've also started to machine a few cranks as part of the machine setup. Not completely machined but it's starting to look promising.

    As for the CNC machining, we've been doing this for years now. 4.6l front and rear wheel drive blocks, 3.9l, 2.7l, 3.0l and 5.0l heads are all done this way. CNC's are much less expensive and easily adapted for new products. The down side is they are less robust and volume output is much less than a typical transfer line.

    Were the cranks cast? Any more updates you have seen?

    Did you read the bottom of that post? That info is a joke.

    Sorry. I didn´t. But more a wishlist than just a joke. A wish can be fulfilled:)
