That may be true, but the original post asks about the 5.0L, not ecoboost or diesels.

Looks like the new 5.2 liter V8 with the flat crankshaft, in the mustang is a cross between the 5.0 and the 5.8 liter.  The pictures seem to indicate that Ford is utilizing the 5.8l bore without liners and a stroke around 95mm, ie  93.5mm bore and 95mm stroke. Must be utilizing the iron spray process directly on the aluminum bore. i can't figure out the deck height though.


Any thoughts???

I don't know that the bore is the same.  But the 5.2 has the spray in liner for sure.

The bore on Voodoo was increased to 94mm mainly due to the Plasma Transfer Wire Arc liners.


Ford will need to lift the deck to get more displacement out of the Coyote/Voodoo block.


Gone too fast, Nick.

I don't think too many people are nostalgic about the 2.3T in the 80's Mustangs.  There's a reason they were only offered for a few years.  The 2.3 was going to exist whether the Mustang used it or not, as there is a need for it in other vehicles.  More than likely, it just happened to check all the boxes that were needed in the Mustang also, so there it is.

The reason there is nostalgia for the SVO was that the SVO was faster than the GT of the time, not because anyone particularly liked a turbo.

I debated between the 3.7 ecoboost and the 5.0 on my new F150.  I have yet to recieve it, but was glad to settle on the 5.0  I actually trust Ford, and believe their turbos will run well for a good service life.  But, I wanted the simplicity and durablilty the 5.0 provides, and its a modest MPG hit, so I was pleased to make teh 5.0 choice.  I suspect many are doing the same.

If you are thinking of a 5.0L Coyote , dont think twice- It is the best engine ever put in an F150 IMO and gets no marketing whatsoever.
Ive had old 5.0s, 5.8s,  5.4s, 5.4 3valves and this engine is better, is good on fuel,  revs like a chevy, and has a sound that an ecoboost just cant beat !
Twin turbo 6cyl in my truck ?  Never.   Let me know how that works out after your warranty is up.
Trucks are supposed to have a v8.

Revs like a Chevy? So you're saying the 5.0 is a slow, laborious, rough revver? Sorry, couldn't resist. :-)
