This program was to provide the Mustang performance customer a powerful, affordable engine, while minimizing the impact on manufacturing at the engine and vehicle assembly plants. Variations of engines that met the manufacturing requirements were evaluated, and only the supercharged, 4-valve per cylinder 4.6L engine satisfied all the criteria. This paper covers the changes required to the engine system and the development efforts to meet program requirements. The final results are compared to previous engines in the vehicle, and to other supercharged engines.
