There was a battle within Ford as to whether to do an enlarged high deck Mod on what became Coyote
or to go with 5.8/6.2 Hurricane - resurrected as 6.2 Boss. And as we know the boss won out......
Just my opinion but 5.0 & 5.8 Coyote would have been a blast and left Ford with Boss at a +7.0 liter V8 from get go
I think Ford should make a 5.8-7.x Boss series the standard V8 while the EB v6 picks up where the 5.0 left off. More commonality in the future but the 5.0 still have potential.
