I was thinking about swapping a 5.0 engine into my 01GT, stroking it out to 347, add a power adder, and do the typical heads, cam, and intake. The problem with the 2Vs are they are already maxed out in a way. You can not get above 300RWHP typically by swapping heads, cam and intake let alone make 350RWHP+ as you can in a 302. Let alone stroking it is almost out of the question because all you can get out of it is a 302. Where as you can stroke a 5.0 to a 331/347 ect. Modulars are cool at first becaue you have more HP out of the box, but imagine if Ford would have kept the 5.0, and slapped sweet heads on them like they did on the 99+? They would be making 280HP out of the box minimum. The 2Vs are maxed out of the factory due to good engineering from the factory. The exhaust manifold flow well enough that replacing them with shorties dont gain any real HP. The only improvement you can make on the heads is to port the stock ones. And you only gain about 5HP if you get the bullit intake. So what would it take to do this, and would it be worth it? Think about this too, at least there are forged pistons in the 5.0.
