Wards Auto: 2016 Best Engine Of The Year Winner

Another accolade for the voodoo engine. Interesting comment that it breathes better than a Ferrari engine.

"“Our ports flow better than theirs,” says Adam Christian, internal-combustion specialist who worked extensively on the program."

"Having spent nine glorious days with the GT350 in November, our panel of eight gobsmacked editors deems it worthy of a 2016 Wards 10 Best Engines trophy because it runs like American Pharoah on a trough full of steroids."

Truly amazing, and I like the analogy.

102HP per Liter, 12.0:1 compression ratio, all very impressive, but what amazes me the most is the size of this FPC engine. Before this engine, a FPC engine had to be under 5.0L or so most thought.

Ford Motor Company's engine development is some of the best in the world. If I had not discovered the Boss 302 U Code engine, I may have not purchased a Mustang when I did. IIRC the coyote or Boss engine made the same list back in 2011?

I suspect the new 5.2 Voodoo engine will prove to be a very reliable engine too.

Good stuff here, love these new Ford Cammer engines.
