A recently published patent application (found here) lists a pushrod V8 - with FOUR valves per cylinder - as one embodiment for this new compact turbo charging system. Let's hope we get to see this on the streets soon.

Ford's New Turbo Pushrod V8
Is this the newest engine for the 2010 Mustang GT? (Probably not. According to our friends at Autoblog, this is most likely Ford's new Scorpion diesel engine - though the patent application's specification discusses using this layout in a gasoline engine as well- so its not strictly limited to oil burners.)
