id rather be strokin then cummin!

i vote 460 for sure i am the one masterbeatty "ed about the "Triton turbos" got my F150 with a 4.6 dynoed makes max power at 4,200RPM i was reading a 460 dyno made max HP and TQ at 2,100 RPM thats power right now and when towing thats were you need it.

the 5.4 has some issuses to i wouldnt wanna be towing and have my spark plugs fly out the head because ford desided to only use 4 spark plug threads to save money. im on F150online.com and ive seen way to many sparkplug blow outs due to this crappy plug thread stuff. Also the cam pharesers and lashers have been a pretty big prob. on them too.

the 5.4 gets about 13MPG city 15MPG hwy the 7.5 on the other hand gets about 6-8 maybe but id much rather have the 460 its a normal OHV engine push rods and all with a distrubtor none of this SOHC cam and coil over plug crap. id take me wires and a distrubtor any day. thats why im kinda glad i got the 4.6 coil packs and wires and all 8 of my spark plug threads :)
