    How can an engine be both a V8 and a rotary? A rotary engine does not have cylinders. :( A rotary engine is similar to a RX-8.

    I would like to see the V-10 engine that was produced by those Ford engineers, dropped into the GT, and tested by MOTOR TREND. That would be a good "R".

    I seriously doubt the next R model will be super/turbocharged. The class the R's were built to compete in doesn't allow any power adders.

    I'm pretty sure the rotary motor is considered to have two cylinders even though they are not a typical cylinder. But I guess if you take the actual definition of "cylinder" they don't have any... Shrug. I guess I don't have a point, but a rotary with 4x the "triangles" ;) of an RX-7 would have to be awesome! Not really something that should be in a Mustang though.

    I am starting to think with the stir from FORD with the V10 in the old MOTORTREND issue and some other advertising...

    The V10 will be placed in the R.

    My predictions are as follows:

    230hp V6 Duratec 3.Xltr
    310hp V8 3V 4.6ltr
    420hp V8 4V 5.4ltr S/C'd
    485hp V10 4V N/A

    You're talking about the fat black guy with the blue V6 auto right?

    regarding ignorance about rotaries this isn't the place but I agree, read up guys Ignorance is the glove evil slips it's hand into.
