Vortec gets its name from a line of small block engines for GM trucks. The name first appeared in a 1984 advertisement for the 4.3 L V6 that used “vortex technology” to produce a swirl inside the combustion chamber that allowed for better air/fuel flow.
When we talk about the Ford 5.4 L V-8 engine, many would remember that the legendary engine is one of the “10 Best” engines as nominated by Ward’s Auto World. Indeed, this engine has been installed in many of Ford’s most popular vehicles. The engine pertains to Ford’s modular engine family together with 4.6L V-8 and the 6.8L V-10. However, the Ford 5.4 L V-8 stands out to be considered as the best built engine by Ford in the industry. The secret formula is exceptional quality and attention to detail that Ford has carefully developed for this line of the engine since when it first debuted.
