Yeah the 2v and 3v were found I'm trucks and vans. The 4v was in the cobra r and shelby 500. Until 2013 then the trinity went into the Shelby 500.

I think so. I had the 4.2 Essex in my f150. That 4.2 has to be one of the most durable motors ford has maid. It had 120k and the oil looked cleaner then the oil in my coyote which has 20k. And there is also one called the cologne.

Secret code names so no one really knows what they're doing till it comes out.. Similar to the military naming a secret op..

They are internal codenames that we were never really supposed to know ... but the problem is now that we have internets, engineers actually get to talk to people. We ran into this a lot when I worked for Xerox since the analysts and engineers would refer to the products based on the codename for the print engine, and the salespeople and support staff would overhear us and start using the same terminology.


Also, because racecar.
