I know about that one, but no one is really using it.
True, but there's really only two OEM's that would have any interest in it.
90% of the advantage of VVT in on the intake closing side anyway. As long as you are able to control that, you are realizing the vast majority of it. The other three movements are largely trivial.
But Ghost Cam...
I feel the power potential of modular 4v architecture is higher than ibc ohv’s as long as displacement is equal, Ford would have never developed the 427 SOHC of the early to mid 60s if the rewards weren't there over the low, medium or high riser 427 side oilers or even the tunnel port for that mater, if Ford could dedicate a large displacement modular version of the current Coyote 5.0 to say 6L or even a 7L to the performance standards of the current 5L I think it would be AMAZING, HUGE but AMAZING (ie experimental 777 by Roush)!!! 10 Awesome Ford Engines
I feel that due to weight, size, simplicity and cost going back to the IBC V8 makes sense for this segment.
Lol, sometimes you do things because it just seems cool!
Cost and packaging were def driving forces in the development of the 7.3L.
And just like from a pure power density standpoint for the OHC design, these are very real advantages of the OHV. Overall packaging/weight is a huge + for the ole pushrod mills.
Why Ford Made a New 7.3-Liter Gas Pushrod V8 in 2019
A new rear firewall and transmission tunnel would be hard to get past the bean counters. You would want the motor back for balance. I would be surprised to see it in a Mustang.
Not that difficult those are easy fixes. Its a matter of k memeber and motor placement.
I'm hoping someone is already working on one of these:
Aaaaahhhhh the whine of gear drives, how I've missed you...
It baffles me a little that they chose not to use this. If you are going to boast about ultimate reliability and durability, why not make a huge statement by including this.
I think people's absolute fear of hearing anything mechanical coming from their car/truck, and the OEM's obsession with reducing all things related to NVH, drives some of these questionable decisions
Weight and maybe auto adjust chain mech in there.

Just think of what some big long tubes could do for that motor
