Watch How Ford Racing Build Their 5.0 Aluminator Crate Engines


Ford Racing Performance Parts takes you on a tour of our 5.0L Aluminator crate engine build line in Livonia Michigan. These hand assembled crate engines are available in naturally aspirated or supercharged versions. Applications include 2011-2014 Mustang GT or any Ford “resto-mod” or street rod build using our Coyote Crate Engine Controls Pack.

Here at the Ford Racing PAS (Performance Assembly Solutions) engine plant in Livonia Michigan – engineers take time and pride in building some of the most powerful and reliable Ford engines available to the aftermarket. After the engine is dissembled, cleaned and de burred it is jet washed and a dried with compressed air. The block is then gauged and all measurements and clearances are noted and recorded against the engine serial number for future reference.

The engine is assembled using Manley H beam forged Rods, Mahle Pistons with graphal low friction coatings dished 9.5:1compression for supercharged and 11:1compression for naturally aspirated applications. All components are assembled with ARP performance fasteners and bolts.

Main bearings are installed and sized for each individual engines measurements and specifications

The rebalanced crankshaft is installed next and then the main bearing caps are installed in their correct positions and torqued in sequence to spec with an electronic torque gun.

The crankshaft is then rotated with a special tool to measure average roll away and peak break away torque and the measurements are recorded again to the engines serial number.

Next the piston and rod assemblies are lubricated with oil and installed into the block, the rod caps are installed and then all torqued to spec with the electronic torque gun

The engine assembly is then rotated again and torque to turn is measured and recorded again for peak break away and average turning torque.

Now on the underside of the engine, it’s time to install the oil pan baffle (windage tray) and gasket, followed by the oil pump pick up tube. On the top of the engine its time to install the multi layered steel cylinder head gaskets and then the Ford cylinder heads.

The intake and exhaust camshafts are then lubricated and installed followed by the cam caps ensuring correct placement and orientation

Timing chains are next along with the VCT phasers and the engine is then timed using the ID marks on the gears with those on the chains.

All that’s left now is to install the engine covers – valve covers, timing covers and intake manifold and the engine then moves onto a series of final tests.

First is the coolant leak pressure test, then the engine is primed with heated oil to test oil pressure and torque to turn. The final cold stand function is to measure and test individual cylinder pressures and record them against the engine serial number.

Now the Ford racing Aluminator engine is complete and ready to race – What engine would you like to put in your ford Mustang or resto mod? Leave your comments below.

Ford Racing Releases The Perfect 5.0L Mustang Engine For Supercharging – The New “Aluminator”


M-6007-A50SC $8099.00
By now everyone knows that supercharging your 2011+ 5.0 liter Mustang engine isn’t an ideal proposition for big power.
The engine’s inherent 11:1 compression ratio makes adding more boost an exercise that requires an expert tuning and
supercharger design format to keep it from blowing apart.

Ford Racing has come to the rescue with their new 5.0L Mustang “Aluminator” crate engine for supercharging. It’s the very
same 5.0L 32-valve DOHC V-8 that with Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT), but comes with a lower
native compression ratio of 9.5:1

Using low compression forged pistons and forged H-beam connecting rods, the engine is better suited for your high
horsepower builds as it isn’t as high strung and fragile at the outset.

Inside, you will find Mahle hard anodized forged pistons and Manley H-Beam rods with ARP bolts. The block of course has
cross-bolted mains and you get a large 8 quart deep sump pan too.

Ford Racing’s 5.0L Mustang “Aluminator” crate engine is a modern 5.0L 32-valve DOHC V-8 that uses advanced features
like Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) to deliver big power. Unlike the factory 5.0L engine, the
“Aluminator” is built with low compression forged pistons and H-beam connecting rods to meet the demands of forced

NMRA Adds Coyote Class For The 2012 Season



ProMedia, parent company of the NMRA Ford Nationals all-Ford series, has announced a new heads-up drag racing class for the 2012 NMRA Keystone Automotive Ford Nationals season. Strange Engineering Coyote Stock Presented by 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords Magazine will be a spec-engine class, utilizing a sealed version of Ford’s newest powerplant, the 5.0-liter DOHC “Coyote” motor (carrying the unique part number M-6007-M50S) and utilize a spec, sealed processor (CM-12A650-A5LA).

The class will be open to all Ford vehicles, 1954 model-year and newer, and each competitor will be required to weigh-in at the same 3200 pounds. Competitors will compete on a true 10.5-inch tire and have a choice of a wide variety of Ford OE and TREMEC manual transmissions utilizing a single-disc diaphragm clutch, or can use the venerable C4 automatic transmission.

Coyote Stock was formed to provide an affordable way for both rookie and veteran drivers to be competitive in a heads-up class without having to undertake an involved, expensive engine program.

“Coyote Stock is a great way to return race cars to the track with an affordable engine package. It speaks to the original spirit of NMRA racing,” said Jesse Kershaw, Drag Racing and Competition Manager at Ford Racing. “The Coyote engine is about half the cost of a competitive Factory Stock engine and about one third the price of a Pure Street engine. It also requires far less maintenance.”
