The claim made by the folks involved in the testing is that it produces over 600 hp WITHOUT turbo or supercharging. Just wondering if anyone knows if there is such an engine under development... and if so, what application?
    It sounds like a race engine....115-120 + hp/ l v8..without forced induction...this engine must be spinning in some high rpms.

    Agreed. I don't see any engine that size producing that kind of power for street use without some form of forced induction. Its almost hard to conceive of that kind of power even for a racing engine without forced induction. Sounds like a unicorn to me.

    Ford has lofty goals for a Boss like V8 coming in less than 2 years.
    It will spin far past current 5.0L, and will be limited in production volume.
    That's all you get for now.

    But will it be racing engine meant for track use only or? I've read rumors about smaller v8 coming from ford...any truth in that?

    From what I understand the "smaller" V8 will go to Lincoln.

    interesting that the HP-per-liter is between nat.asp. and EB2

    something suddenly makes me wonder if it could use electric-valve-actuation??
    ...along with every other non-boost trick in the book
