Product Description

Perfect for a Budget Build!
This economy Mustang 5.0L 302 short block is just the ticket for that budget build or swap! These blocks are great candidates for naturally aspirated light street/strip applications or for restoring OE style performance.

Build Process
Our re-manufactured Mustang 5.0L short blocks start as good Ford cores that are disassembled, then placed in state-of-the-art, environmentally safe burners, followed by steel shot blasting to clean. The blocks are magnafluxed, inspected for cracks, bored .040-.060 over and precision honed to manufacturer's specifications. They are then fitted with new, cast aluminum pistons and cast rings*. 50-oz. cranks are precision ground to recommended specifications, and micro-polished. These Mustang 5.0L short blocks include double roller timing chain, but do not include cam shaft. They will, however, accept any roller cam. Fox body owners can check out our Mustang top end engine kits to help complete your build!

Block Info
These blocks are original Ford blocks that would come out of old Mustangs, F-150's, Crown Victoria's and ext, then they are re-manufactured here in Texas. These are not foreign made. The cylinder bores are machined the minimum amount possible "between .030-.060" to bring them in to spec. All bores will be the same size. If a cylinder cannot be bored back to true, then a sleeve will be installed so that the block can still be serviceable.

Piston Info
Piston to valve clearance is a commonly asked question when it comes to these blocks in our sales department. This clearance can vary with many different applications, it is best to have a machine shop check this for your if you are not familiar with the process. The pistons have 4 valve relief cuts in them as factory style pistons would have and should run between 9.0-9.5:1 compression when used with stock heads.

Warranty Info
This re-manufactured Mustang short block includes a 90-day, 4,000 mile limited warranty**.

- You must re-use the original threaded oil filter bung

*Cast aluminum pistons and cast iron rings are recommended for naturally aspirated combinations only. Not recommended for superchargers, turbos, or nitrous. Always check piston-to-valve clearance when installing aftermarket performance heads or cams.

**Some conditions apply. This is a replacement warranty only. Labor and shipping costs not included in warranty. Installing incorrect parts, Overheating, abuse, or lack of regular maintenance may void warranty.
