I could have sworn that this makes the v10 a rod/crank bearing pounding engine....but I can't remember where I read/heard it. I think that the firing time along with the firing order makes that motor combo very hard on lower end bearings.....I think that it's also a case of the engine being under engineered....

But, honestly I can say I haven't seen a whole ton of the V-10 motors

As far as the 4.6's and 5.4's go, the main problem I've seen is the timing chain issue...that and exhaust manifolds like to rott big time up here in the rust belt.....
It should be firing every 36 degrees if I remember right. When they run good they seem like a pretty smooth engine.
