    Some of you may remember an article by drivel I think it was, that quoted Ford's Euro engine guru as saying Ford will no longer invest in their V8s. I can't remember the guy's name.. Pic.. Pino.. Picone.. ah, yes, Pinocchio.
    LOL, every time he spoke his nose grew longer...

    Look, Coyote and the V6s have been out for years now and GM's newer DI V6s and Pushrod Gen 5s
    are starting to "catch" them, the competitor in me has to believe that Ford has continued working on
    its engines and has been far from sitting on its hands.

    I recall how one of the Coyote developers proudly mentioned that power levels were achieved with PFI and
    that DI was not required which saved $50/engine....Pfft, that blew me away, was the guy tipping Ford's hand?

    Apparentluy it's a tech that Ford was intending to add to other engine lines once the process was perfected in Trinity..

    With PFI, the Coyote still has more torque per cube than anything else on the market after Ferrari's and Porsche's hipo atmos.

    That would be good; a clear advantage over other manufacturers.
