This all sounds very interesting. Patiently waiting for power numbers.

So they re-powered it...that's great! BUT....the primary complaints I have with mine, and have read about over and over again has never been about the engine....they are always about the handling, stiffness and harsh ride of the chassis. Wonder if they are making any improvements there?

Its the old 460 redesigned. The 6.8 V10 3 valve 362 HP is a much superior engine.

Why is the 6.8 V10 a superior engine to the new 7.3 V8?
Inquiring minds want to know.

Gee, an engine with the camshaft in the block.
How original. And 8 cylinders!
Why don't they put one of those 3.5 ecoboost engines in it?
Everybody brags about how powerful they are!

Close in size, not even close in features and tech.

I too would like to know why you think the 6.8L will be so much better than this one.

Are they already there?
Have your folks tested the engines/chassis for numbers yet?
