Thanks to an alert reader perusing the Ford Racing online parts catalog, we now know that both the new 5.0-liter "Coyote" V8 and the aluminum-block supercharged 5.4-liter V8 that power the 2011 Mustang GT and GT500 can be purchased in boxes.

The 412 horsepower, twin-cam 32-valve V8 comes fully dressed except for the air-conditioning compressor and alternator. That means it has compete fuel injection and ignition systems and all the manifolding and other bits. The other item that's not included is the wiring harness and powertrain control module which will set you back an extra $1,499 on top of the $6,999 for the engine.

For those with a hankering for even more grunt, the aluminum 5.4-liter also comes dressed for success with 550 hp and 510 pound-feet of torque. The cylinder bores of the new engine have been coated with a Plasma Transferred Wire Arc system to make them tougher than steel or iron with much lower weight. The blown engine is a good bit steeper – $20,999 – plus the harness and PCM. A tip of the hat to GT!

      Any idea if the 5.0 would fit in an Aviator?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Man! With those prices, you gotta figure they are making big money on every unit.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Both engines are easily capable of much more than their power ratings, there are all kinds of people running around with modded GT500s that make far more than 550hp.

      Here's a simple solution, if you're building a Ford, go with the Ford engine. If you're building a GM, go with the GM engine.

      That's a relatively small sum for a 400+ HP. This, a great 6 speed and a first-gen Mustang Coupe would make a great, inexpensive summer toy.

      Better yet - will the 3.7 V6 ever be available? 300HP and 30MPG (or better) would be fantastic!
        • 4 Years Ago
        I'd be extremely interested in the V6. I'd love to stick it in a fox coupe...
        • 4 Years Ago
        Even better, when is the Boss's 440hp 5.0L going to be available as a crate engine?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Already drooling over the idea of that new 5.0 in an S-chassis...
      • 4 Years Ago
      Imagine one of these things in an Ariel Atom style body
      • 4 Years Ago
      The 5.0 in a Daytona Coupe Chassis would be fun.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Anyone think it could be shoe-horned into an old Lotus Seven?
        • 4 Years Ago
        The 5.0L in.....anything would be fun haha.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I'm waiting to see what they can do with Ford's new 6.2L V8, the torque numbers should be monstrous.
        • 4 Years Ago
        People have done older 5.0 swaps into rangers quite a bit. Best thing to do to the 4.0L is to supercharge it.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I have a 1997 Ranger 4.0L, I wonder if the 5.0 would fit.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Nah !

      Just gimme an old 5.0 punched to 347 with all the goodies or better yet an aluminum block 351 punched out to 408 /427 .
      • 4 Years Ago
      Just what the kit cobra needs! 2400lbs and 412hp...sounds about right to me.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Latemodel Restoration Supply has the same 5.0L crate motor for $6129.99. Obviously the price listed here is MSRP.

      A reliable, warranted 400+hp engine with all new electronics and this kind of fuel economy and day to day drivability is hard to come by at that price. Not a bad price if you ask me.

      For all of you posting about "dropping in" the new Ford 412HP 5.0 please be aware that it is about the size and weight of a Chevy big block. The dimensions of this engine will prevent most of the swaps you are thinking about. Basically it is far larger and heavier than the GM LS engines.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Hence why the SBC is typically the swap of choice. They can fit into almost anything.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Some people like to be different?

        BS larger perhaps, but certainly not heavier...
      • 4 Years Ago
      My 98 explorer has a 302ci motor in it this would be a perfect swap with the 5.0
