^ Still a piss-poor design! It was on the 'ol Dodge Intrepid and still is today. I thought we were supposed to learn from mistakes/history...

Unfortunately it comes back to Ford being cash poor in the late 2000s. The design spec for the Cyclone mandated that it had to fit anywhere the Duratec 30 had, and that meant they had to save space somewhere.
