ALTHOUGH the new Ford V-8 engine has displacement and compression ratio as the old V-8 does, the new engine develops 130 hp and 214 ft-lb maximum torque to only 110 hp and 196 ft-lb torque for the old. Specific fuel consumption is also lower in the new engine over the entire speed range.
The new engine has a very short stroke, to increase mechanical and thermal efficiencies. It also has overhead valves to permit maximum volumetric efficiency to be attained, if required by future increases in compression ratio.
