Ford 427 FE crate engine - Click for high-res image gallery

Racers and project car builders have two fresh engine options to choose from in the Ford Racing parts catalog. Fans of the classic 302 cubic inch V8 and a lighter budget can opt for the 340 horsepower X302 crate engine. At $3,495, the X302 offers the classic cast iron block and aluminum cylinder heads mated with forged aluminum pistons and die cast aluminum valve covers.

Those in need of a bit more oomph can opt for the new 427 FE, based on the Boss 351 block with four-bolt main bearings carrying the forged steel crankshaft and rods. The block is topped with Ford Racing aluminum cylinder heads with 10.5:1 compression ratio, netting 535 hp and 545 lb-ft of torque and commanding $8,800. Both engines get the standard Ford Racing one year warranty. Press releases are after the jump.
