'94-'99 Motors were rated at 215 HP and 285 ft-lbs TQ. 2000 Saw an increase in HP and TQ.

The 5.0L motor can just benefit more from modding.

Re: 4.6 and 5.0 question

the 5.0 had more tq even was rated with more I do believe (300ftlbs) and the rpm peak and curve are different. Making each fast the 5.0 is cheaper to do so.

Everywhere i read rates them exactley the same but people say the 5.0 is more powerfull.acording to the bigger bore theory the 5.0 would be easier to get hp out of so i guess it would benefet more
