    Might want to crawl inot a hole after this BUT........

    You guys seem extremely knowledgeble with Chevy motors. The question is what about Ford motors? If I decide to build a (now say it with me rabbit) mmmuuussstttt-aaannnggg I would want to put a Ford motor under the hood. To be more precise a DOHC V-8 5.4l from a Lincoln Navigator. Also around what cost am I looking at for a good motor to be built for me to put in?

    Musssssstang

    Basically all wedge engines respond to the same changes. I would start with a solid bottom end. If it is a race motor, I'd go with forged pistons and after market rods. "H" beams for all out. Go with the best bolts you can afford. I'm pretty sure Lively will chime in as he is the resident Ford guy. A good set of heads and intake. Decide what you want from the engine and if you plan on power adders later. Twin turbo Stangs are pretty strong competitors. With a turbo you can make great power and still build a daily driver. I like pretty much any American V8 that is built right. As long as you like it, that's all that really matters. JMO

    Now can I get a lotnice amount of hp out of a DOHC if I go that route. Or would sticking with the traditional V-8 be better?

    He is the resident FORD MAN, although I'm sure he isn't the only one. Rumor has it,however, that there is a chevrolet currently being built in his garage, so he may have switched teams.

    OK you say that like there is something wrong with them. From what I have heard they were run in the 1994-2004-05 mustang cobras as a 4.6l and the 5.4 was in the lincoln navigators. Also in 2003-04 they were supercharged in the cobras. I also seen a car that has a 6/71 blower on a 4.6l that is running the prostreet div. in a mercury maruader. I can easily build a sbf or bbf too. I already have a 351windsor i believe that is in an old 84 f-350 that I can build. it runs but Im having trouble keeping it running going down the road. Anyways, I think this is enough for right now.
