my personal fealings towards the 5.0 is that its a relic, outdated, no room for improvement, will wear out in under 100k, drinks way to much gas, exhaust manifold bolts fall out, intakes gum themselfs up with sludge, EGR valve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.
