New 5.0 Coyote V8 - IN DEPTH
5.0/superfords magazine (I'm a regular visitor to their site) just recently published a story regarding the new 5.0 V8. It's a very comprehensive article (15 pages long) but it brings to light some of the challenges Ford had when designing this engine as well as neat technical bits and other bits of info...

Very good article. Lots of details.

Personally I am still surprised they did not go with DAMB valve actuation like the the 3.5/3.7L. My guess is that it had to do with the existing tooling.

P.S. I think that is the same "Indy" Cammer that used to sit in the lobby of the old EEE/POEE building. It was there when I started back in 1976 !

All that matters are these factors
  • Power
  • Durability
  • Economy
  • cost of maintanance
Yes, I think the V8 standard is still GM.. No one makes more power as cheaply..
