Ford replaces the small block 5.0L V8 with a more technologically advanced 4.6L V8, which produces the same amount of horsepower as the 1995 5.0L V8, while the SVT Cobra’s Aluminum version of the 4.6L creates 305hp. The manual transmission is upgraded as well, with a stronger and more efficient design. Suspension geometry is updated as well, and a stiffer rear stabilizer bar is introduced as well to balance the changes made in the engine compartment.
