Sorry to throw in a non classic mustang question but my brother and I were disagreeing over something today and this is the place to find out who is right. He has a '97 GT with a 4.6L engine. He says its a 302. I told him that a 5.0L engine equalled out to a 302, so his shouldn't be a 302. Who is right? If he is, i'll just not mention it to him again. Thanks guys.

By mathematics, a 4.6L engine would displace roughly 282 cubic inches. A 5.0L engine would displace roughly 304 cubic inches... but 304 I guess doesn't sound as good as 302 =)
In short, the 4.6L is NOT a 302 cubic inch engine.

Definitely do that =) You could look at the modular 4.6L engine as the re-make of the 289, hehe.

The last year for the 302 in a Mustang was 95.

I guess he has not heard of a 5.0 Mustang, eh? :)

If I'm not mistaken, one liter equals approximately 61 cubic inches.

I said 282... it's actually 281.6, which rounded up is 282.

When you tell him, point out that he's got the equivalent of a Chevy 283. That ought to rile him up a bit.
