    I've tried searching this topic, but they all seem to pretain to post mod 0-60 times. Does anyone know what the Ford factory specified 0-60 time is for a 2000 AWD V8?

    Thanks in advance,

    About 8-9 secs for the V8s, the times for SOHC V6s is measured in minutes:)

    Just Joshin, 97, in a semi pumped form, the SOHC will do very well against any 4.6 V8,some of the time better :D

    Spindle, The 5.0 explorers will do 0-60 in mid/high 9 and the SOHC in my GF 02 sport would beat mine stock. They're pretty quick. Plus add one of my pantented resistor chips and electric superchargers.

    Being that I to date am the only SOHC owner that has posted some dyno numbers that come close to V8 numbers (Crank) am here to tell you, you can get a 7.8, 0 to sixty with the V6 SOHC engine, 5 runs, same mile markers, same day, same hour ,using a G-Tech pro, average of 5 runs, some were less, some were more :D
    And I did do a search, found no dyno graphs posted for my application

    How about a VC2000 record of my stock AWD 98 Mountaineer? My 2nd run was 0-60 in 9.38 seconds, in 497 feet. That is slower than I had hoped for, as was the 60 foot time(2.78 seconds). These vehicles have great launches(15 feet in 1.32 seconds), but the weight is a huge disadvantage after that. The quarter mile was 17.19 at 81.5 MPH, actually better than my first test.
    The peak G's was .687 at 1 foot, and 3.6 MPH.
    Good luck,
    DonW

    This link from the useful threads forum has this info on 0-60 for 2000s.

    0-60 Acceleration
    4.0L OHV V6 10.5 sec
    4.0L SOHC V6 8.1 sec
    5.0L V8 8.8 sec

    Same reason I bought the V-6 back in '97. Plus the fact I wasn't planning on adding any speed mods under the hood. But... this site changes everything.

    Weight. The SOHC shouldn't even be in consideration if you're planning on engine mods. 5.0!

    Cylinders mean very little. There are 3 cylinders that would smoke you. A SOHC isn't all that far behind in the #'s. A SOHC in a 2wd sport will beat the 4 door AWD V8. A 4door SOHC won't beat the same 4 door. Except maybe to the transmission shop. But, then the V8 beats the SOHC to the gas pumps, everytime :)
