Correct me if I'm wrong but 5.4's (stock) don't like to live over 7k do they? IIRC, don't they have an oil starvation issue in the oil pan, in the higher rpm range?Longtubes increase tq and midrange hp by a great amount. Therefore you don't have to spin the engine high to take advantage if the gains offered by them.
The Jba "firecone" is a joke, those shortys add about 3rwhp over stock manifolds.
We're talking Fox conversion, not factory a engineered chassis. It will work, and could be countered to balance out pretty well. Just takes moneyIf that's true, why did Ford put it in the 00R or any of the cars (take your pick) that came with an N/A 5.4 in Australia?
Agreed, but impressive power (800+) is not likely going to come from a stock longblock Triton. There are exceptions to everything, but impressive power tends to come with impressive investment.I've never seen a impressive amount of power come out of a cimbo that had shortys of any type.
To me an impressive amount of power is dictated by the combo, not a given number like 800+. A stock navi engine can make over 400rw, that's impressive while an 11:1 engine with ported heads making just over 400rw is not.Agreed, but impressive power (800+) is not likely going to come from a stock longblock Triton.

Lol that's fine. For a second I was thinking...I mean that you've had some...experiences that most of the other members of this forum probably haven't. And, which one am I in the picture. I look more like the guy on the left, but feel more like the guy on the right. I'm headed to the liquor store in about an hour and will probably be blurry like the ones in the background in about 3 1/2 more hours .
