Default Which engine is better?

The Ford 5.0 or the 4.6 modular?

(Sorry, I couldn't resist with all the "flavor of the week" engine and car threads!)

Well let's see.....

My old 331 stroker N/A car went 10.90's@133mph on pump gas.(daily driver)

My old well thought out 306 with 150 shot in a coupe went 10.30's@136.....(also daily driver)



But after owning every power adder type 5.0 based engine I would have to take an 03-04 cobra with either a whipple 3.4 or a hellion turbo setup......

Are you planning on running those on 20% or 30%?

That's a tough one. I still like the 289 the best. What a screamer!! Much like the Chev 302. That was a killer engine too.

For the past few years I've been playing with a 2.3 Turbo Ford. What a neat, albeit dino engine.
