Re: new v8 ... so SOON?
OK had a thought about something, what if Ford is going to play
mix and match with a few available bore and stroke ratios...
Follow me here
Coyote 5.0 = 92.2 mm x 92.0 mm
Voodoo 5.2 = 94.0 mm x 92.0 mm FPC (unique to Shelby)
Cammer 5.0 = 94.0 mm x 90.0 mm
New Coyote 5.0 = 94.0mm x 90.0mm (using Cammer Mod style Crank)
New Coyote 5.2 = 94.0 mm x 92.0 mm (Original 5.0 Coyote cross plane crank)
New Coyote 4.8 = 92.2 mm x 90.0 mm (using Cammer Mod style Crank)
If this report were true, then it would leave open the possibility that the Mustang
could continue with a bigger bore shorter stroke 5.0 Coyote for added power/torque
while allowing F150 to use both 4.8 and 5.2 versiosn of the Coyote. That 0.4 liter may
not sound like much of a difference but it could be enough to cover the needs of V8 buyers
in the two important towing segments, up to 8,000 lbs and >8,000 lbs through to 12,000 lbs. .
