Ford Racing is now offering a 302 5.0L V8 crate engine from the truly awesome B0ss 302 Mustang. The fully-built crate engine comes with 11.0:1 compression ratio forged aluminum pistons, a lightweight aluminum cylinder block, a large sump 8.5-qt oil pan, revised composite intake system with shorter runners, 80-mm single bore drive-by-wire throttle body, ported cylinder heads with sodium-filled exhaust valves and sinter-forged connecting rods. The complete longblock is good for 444-hp.
Some wiring must be done as the vehicle harness and PCM is not included. A manual transmission engine harness and flywheel are included however. The engine weighs in at 444-lbs and options include Ford’s blue coil pack covers and NVH insulator pads. Those interested in the crate engine, the part # is M-6007-M50B.
Pricing is steep at $11,999 – a $5,000 premium over a regular 5.0L V8 crate motor.

Ah, Ford‘s new 5.0L engine. The savior of the Mustang, and the provider of the thrust behind the cheapest 400+ horsepower car you can buy. It’s got variable valve timing, real headers, a beautifully sculpted intake manifold, and 412 advertised horsepower. Until now, it’s only had one problem: The only way to get one is under the hood of a $30,000 2011 Mustang GT.
That all changes now.
Starting August 15th, Ford Racing Performance Parts (FRPP) will be offering the 5.0L as a crate engine, and you can just go ahead and stuff that bad boy into whatever you’ve got laying around. All it takes is $6,999 plus an alternator, a few accessories, a transmission, and the appropriate RWD architecture.
If you ask us, grab yourself an ’89 Mustang Notchback, LX or 4-banger, drop this bad boy in along with the Tremec 6-speed from the Mustang GT, a set of coilovers, a cage, and some 18″ American Racing wheels, and you’ve got yourself a hell of a hot rod for under $15,000.
Hit the jump for all the vital details about the new crate engine, part number M-6007-M50, directly from Ford:
Along with a new EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 option, Ford is apparently preparing to offer the F-150 with the company’s secret 5.0-liter V8 “Coyote” engine. A bevy of F-150s were spotted by the folks at PickupTrucks.com, and the spy photographers were even able to get up close and under the hood to see the new V8 (pictured above).
This new engine will reportedly make around 400hp and 400 ft-lbs of torque and will be shared with the Mustang GT. Both the current 4.6-liter V8 and 5.4-liter V8 engines will be dropped from the Ford lineup, with the EcoBoost taking the place of the 4.6 and the Coyote replacing the 5.4L unit.
