Ford having the coyote for a couple of years or so now & chevy having their LS series (push-rod). when i got my 5.0 in dec '11 - i was torn between ford & chevy - but went mustang and haven't looked back yet. heck, mine is geared for gas mileage w/ 331 rear end.... but, plenty power for me. appreciate the insite guys. thanks
Keep in mind that because of the new transmission, your 3.31 is equivalent I believe to around a 3.90 in the 05-10 models
so the gearing isn't really too low overall.
