No, that is Jim Gonsalves, the engine builder.

I think she was excited to have won the race way more than standing next to him, the guy who wanted her out of the Top Fuel Boys Club.

Is there an aluminum block 4 valves per cylinder DOHC Ford V8?

That one is single overhead cam but all the Coyote V8s in Mustangs etc. are DOHC.

No, long before. Aluminum block, DOHC, 4 valves per cylinder, 4 bolt mains.

Started life as a 12 cylinder to compete with RR Merlin engine but cut down to 8 and 1,100 cu in. Over 500 hp and over 1,000 ft lbs torque. This DOHC is from the '40s, there truly is, nothing new under the sun.

Aluminum block, DOHC, 4 valves per cylinder V8 first introduced in June 1942 in the M4A3 Sherman tank.

The Ford GAA engine is an American all-aluminum 32-valve DOHC 60-degree liquid-cooled V8 internal combustion engine designed and produced by the Ford Motor Company before and during World War II. It features twin Stromberg NA-Y5-G carburetors,[2] dual magnetos and twin spark plugs making up a full dual ignition system,[2] and crossflow induction.[3] It displaces 1,100 cu in (18 l) and puts out well over 1,000 pound-feet (1,400 N⋅m) of torque from idle to 2,200 rpm. The factory-rated gross output was 500 hp (370 kW) at 2,600 rpm.

And while we are talking about tank engines this is the one they used in the Patton tank.

Even better is watching the next video where they install it in the car and fire it for the first time. Incredible music from that engine!
