Small Block Tuesday!!

My first ever second edition, as it were, this Tuesday it's another lump of Detroit iron, only this time from Ford, in the shape of the Ford GT's 'Modular' engine.

An all-aluminium, highly specialised version of the 5.4L Modular engine, the GT's Modular unit has a dry-sump with a Lysholm screw-type supercharger, as well as numerous technological features (such as dual fuel injectors per cylinder and oil squirters for the piston skirts) that are not found in other versions.

Displacement: 5408cc / 330ci

Aspiration: 1x Twin-Screw Supercharger

Power: 550bhp / 410kW

Cars Of Note: Ford GT (2005-6), Mustang GT500*, Mustang SVT Cobra R*, Falcon FPV GT*
