More output will be generated and to generate it would be cheaper on the 5.0. Aftermarket is HUGE for them(i.e. Mustang 5.0 with my ragtop down so my hair can blow).

You MIGHT get 300 to the ground from the 4.0, but going balls out and supercharged and really, quite a bit of money. You can get 300 to the ground in NA form with simple bolt ons on the 5.0.

Your dad is a goofball. . .

245 vs. 302 vs. 400bb ask him that one.

You can get 300 tuning/remapping and upgrading the injectors and MaF

Both are wrong 2.3 engine will create more torque and horsepower than any 4.0 or 5.0
