    Looks like the motor from the '04-'06 F150 Lariat. My buddy has one of the '04s with the 5.4L Triton motor.. it's a 3V and looks just like that

    atlantic coast motors. very expensive. ford of austrailia offers an aluminum intake for it. i am going to modify this intake. i will control the VCT for power not emissions. with long tubes, modified intake, huge cam, it is worth enough to go 11.50. i will have to add "H" beam rods and forged pistons. the crank is already steel. this motor is a NVH block. make sure you get NVH. it is WAY stronger than first 3v's. mt delemna is whether to use my 'tork stepper' long tubes or get 1 5/8 to 2" steppers. the stock manifolds have supported 11.50 et's. i have to use my maf and injectors for mixture to work. massive custom tune will be necessary for correct mixture. no need to be afraid of VCT. pulse modulating controllers are everywhere.

    William, certainly keep us up to date on this interesting project. What vehicle did this engine come in? Something made only in Australia? What is the VCT control?

    i told my wife the 4.6 is worn out. i also told her the 5.4 will fit under the hood. i guess it's 4" carbon fibre for me. the `05 f-150 MAF/air cleaner is not such a bad deal to use. i am going to try buying one and installing it facing backwards and feed it with the opening on the cowl. we shall see... i also told her it will get better gas mileage. justifying a $20,000 project is hard work.
