    Ford has been making some odd decisions lately. I get that an OHV engine is easier to package, but does that really matter in a truck of this size?

    Could be for ease of maintenance, but I doubt that alone would be cause enough.

    This has been stirring around in the back of Fords head for a minte...interesting to see it coming though.

    I'm wondering if it isn't packaging that they are trying to work around so much as weight.

    With today's tech I can't see why a 444ci engine can't give the power stroke a run for its money.

    Glad to see Ford making pushrod V8s again, seeing what GM has done with the LS and Chrysler with the Modern Hemis, I wonder what Ford will do.
