    Trick little motor, might be good for the wifes minivan or the European market place.

    That little spendthrift powerplant will probably do quite well until the economy improves.

    I hope Ford puts that much effort into a modern V8, I'll be there for one.

    Yawn. Still being an active member in the SHO community, I can assure you no one's new SHO is getting better gas mileage than my '04 CTS-V got. In fact, Ford is also about to release its 5.0 litre(I typed litre just for you) DOHC V8 Coyote motor in the Mustang and should see other applications. My money is down for it getting better gas mileage than the TT V6...

    I couldn't help but notice you dropped in on a V2, not a 6 banger.

    I'll have to read up on the coyote motor, I mean there needs to be an alternative to Gubmin Motors.

    Re: please build the CTS TT36!

    Just did a quick lookup on Wikipedia:





    5.0 L Coyote

    The 5.0 L (4951 cc, 302 cid)[9] "Coyote" V8 is the latest evolution of the Modular engine. [10] It shares the 4.6 L's 100 mm (3.937 in) bore spacing and 227 mm (8.937 in) deck height,[11] while bore diameter and stroke have increased to 92.2mm (3.63 in) and 92.7mm (3.65 in), respectively. The engine also retains the 4.6 L's 150.7 mm (5.933 in) connecting rod length, which produces a 1.62:1 rod to stroke ratio.[12] The firing order has been changed from that shared by all previous Modular V8s (1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8) to that of the Ford Flathead V8 (1-5-4-8-6-3-7-2).[13] Compression ratio is 11.0:1, despite having typical port fuel injection (as opposed to direct injection) the engine can still be run on 87 octane gasoline. The Coyote features a revised aluminum engine block with improved strength and crank-case ventilation, and all new 4V DOHC cylinder heads that have shifted the camshafts outboard, which allowed for a compact roller finger follower setup and improved intake port geometry. The result is an intake port that outflows the Ford GT intake port by 4 percent.[14] The Coyote also features a forged crankshaft, forged powdered metal rods and hypereutectic pistons with oil jets to help piston cooling. Engine redline is 7000 rpm. The engine is Ford's first V8 application of cam torque actuated (CTA) Twin-independent Variable Cam Timing (TiVCT), which allows the power-train control module (PCM) to advance and retard intake and exhaust cam timing independently of each other, providing improved power, fuel economy and reduced emissions. The engine also receives a new composite intake manifold with a single blade 80 mm throttle mounted low and center, necessitating a relocation of the alternator to the side of the engine. The engine is assembled in Ford's Essex Engine Plant in Windsor, Ontario. [15]
    Vehicles equipped with the 32-valve DOHC TiVCT 5.0 L include the following:
    • 2011 Ford Mustang GT, 412 hp (307 kW) @ 6500 rpm, 390 lb·ft (529 N·m) @ 4250 rpm
    Vehicles anticipated to receive the engine include:




    Awesome power from 5 liters and it should be able to rev well over 7,000rpms. Old SHO owners can really appreciate a high revving powerband. There's also rumors that an Eco-boost Coyote motor would become the next Shelby GT500. Get rid of that dinosaur of an iron block and get this something like that in there and it could be a BEAST.

    There's already rumor of a track-pac Mustang w/ the 5.0 doing M3 times at GingerMan...

    GM will answer with the "Obama". It'll run on broken promises, hot air and lies.

    You must be mistaken by the "Bush". That one is history
