Keeps the coils away from the exhaust heat. Seems smart to me.

Agreed, but these photos are of the 6.2, aren't they?

You're right that is, I think. The 6.2 uses a dual plug configuration with one plug under the coil like on a 2V 4.6/5.4 with a wire going down to the second plug where it would be on a pushrod engine.

It's a KUS piston.
KUS supplies pistons and piston/rod assemblies for various performance Ford applications

Regardless, OHV or OHC, there had to be timing chain somewhere (either a short one up to a cam-in-block camshaft, or a long one way up to the heads). It took me longer than it should have to realize the photos were of the back of the engine. duh

Yes, that is the 7.3L. The oil filter is in the back on the passenger side like an LS.

The piston had lots of rings on it cool
It looked like an aluminum piece of art. Angles and shapes ... and shiny

I am a high school teacher and I have six pistons sitting on my desk as paper weights. I started the collection with a b18 Honda piston and over the years students have gifted pistons to me. Like a .30 over 350 chevy, 250cc Suzuki two stroke, a cr 125cc piston with carnage, a Stihl chainsaw piston with rod etc... They make great conversation pieces and really get some of the quietest kids to speak up, when they realize I’m a gearhead. still looking for something really exotic like a 14l diesel.

No malice intended here or any fanboy BS either.....But why do people say this about the LSx as I've heard that several times?
The famous "Windsor/HO" firing order was used by GM on Cadillac 472/500 engines years before Ford.
472/500 engines also had symmetrical port heads & 4 head bolts per cylinder.

LSx filters are on the rear driver side "Usually", GTO & Trailblazer pans being notable exceptions.

Yep … for oil changes … I just use one ramp on the drivers side of my GM’s
(not recommended on plastic ramps)

D'oh youi're right. Its the same idea though, and not up on the driver's front at an angle like a Windsor, mod motor, or Coyote.
