Default 2011 Mustang 5.0 and GT500 5.4 Crate Engines

I see they are both now available. Holy crap! The 2011 5.4 SC GT 500 eninge is $20,900. The 5.0 is only $7K. What the heck, is the 5.4 really worth anything close to that? I would think a lot could be done to the 4.6 or 5.0 for a LOT less and be competetive with the 5.4.

The GT500 engine is the real deal because all the internals are forged.

Well, I had my 4.6 upgraded to the forged bottom end and the TVS 2300, kept the same heads/cams and it ran $15k installed with a 3 yr/36K mile warrenty. Yes the 5.0L might only be &k but then there is the supporting electronics and others not included.

I don't think any of that is included with the 5.4 either. Forged or not, that is one expensive engine. It is cheaper in the long run just to buy a used Shelby for $32K.
