my personal fealings towards the 5.0 is that its a relic, outdated, no room for improvement, will wear out in under 100k, drinks way to much gas, exhaust manifold bolts fall out, intakes gum themselfs up with sludge, EGR valve problems, overall ford should have retired this tired old dawg a long time before they actuley did!
Obviously you've never owned one.
Yup. The 5.0L is one of Ford's best engine designs ever, both for longevity AND modability.

225hp/300lb ft torque in stang trim...hmm outdated? chevy still used pushrod bent-8s...no room for improvement? i guess u never heard of a 347 stroker? a blower? turbo? wear out under 100K? i know someone who had close to 400K (was in a F-150) and it was still running with basic matience...exhaust manifold bolts fall out? intake sludges up?

u sir are a complete and utter moron. i whole heartly agree that u did not own one of them before
