Considering that all Mod motors share the same cam, heads, etc. (to an extent), the only thing that probably sets it apart from the regular 4.6 in the Crown Vic is a different computer program to run the engine.

the engine cooling system on police cars is way better than any stock car. Your car will overheat long before a cop will.

dyno'd a cop once... made 190 to the tires through the auto. His car weight just at about 5200lbs loaded with all their crap. That car wouldn't ever see much more than about 135...ever.

EDIT: In fact ... I've never seen a cop do much more than about 120, well... except for the aircraft.

Kind of stupid how Ford down grades the cop cars from a 351 to only a 4.6. If you ask me, they should be built w/ the best engine Ford has to offer, like in the 60's. Hell, the 428 Shelby used were interceptor engines. A 5.4 SOHC/DOHC would have been a better choice to replace the 351.

I wonder if the new Hurricane will find it's way into the next interceptor ford tries to make...... I hope it finds it's way into a future mustang I heard they were calling it the boss engine for awhile with a name like that it would be destined for a stang.

Considering how the new Camaro and Challenger have 5.7, 6.1, and 6.2 engines, Ford would be foolish to try to have a 4.6 compete.

Before I put the 5spd in my old '95 P71, I did 145mph with 4.10 gears on the interstate. My speedo is off from the gears by 5mph, so it was more like 140mph. But the gov. kicked in at 145mph.

Now speaking of diffrent cop cars compared to the Crownvic. My dad has an old '93 P71 completly stock, bought at a state auction for $900, and when this thing see's 90mph getting on it(interstate ofcourse).....HANG ON! The car still feels like a V8 driving around, but compared to my Mustang at a speed like that, the Vic felt super strong!

As a member of the people who drive the vics, I am really hard on keeping the mustang crowd under control. I seldom write them the tickets, but the butt chewing is a different story. Let all the ricers get the attention from me and my brotherin. With that said, a vic can go faster than the 135 governor. I have had my previous 03 to just a titch under 150 on the interstate. My 07 is barely clicking 14000 miles and not even broke in, however it gets to 100 very quickly when moving. I don't care for off the line performance, but hey for a 4 door they don't do too bad.

The crown vic does suffer compared to the horsepower performance of the charger, but having driven a charger before at high speeds, the crown vic gets the nod in the suspension and steering department from me. You can drive one handed and be on the radio calling **** in at high speed and feel safe and in control with this car. I would like to see horsepower above the stock gt out of it, we all know ford can accomplish it. I agree though, for the vic to survive, it has to go bigger, stronger and faster than the competition and still maintain the toughness the vic is known for.
