That's interesting. I haven't seen alot of v8s give up the ghost. The only 4.6and 5.4 motors I've seen with issues are the ones that have not been maintained or have been overheated. I used to do alot of work on Bay County Sheriff's cars and the engines seem to hold up very well. These cars were cycled out after 100 to 120k miles on them and I think I've only seen an internal engine problem with one of them.
