    Isn't it the explorer V6? Did your dad design that, or did he oversee the conversion to a mustang engine?

    Your dad may have been a team lead, or head designer, but he hardly designed the entire motor

    He originally did the Explorer and then when it was being transferred to the Mustang, he had to come in on it again because they were adding the electronic throttle.
