Product Description

Ford Racing 363ci Boss Crate Motor
This Ford Racing 363ci 500hp Boss Crate Motor is a great solution for your project Mustang or motor build! By taking the bore out to 4.125", the displacement of the popular 347 stroker has been increased to 363 cubic inches. Combined with an improved Mahle piston, the Z363 makes 50 more horsepower and 50 lb. ft. of torque than the Z347 that it replaces. With a compression ratio of 10.1:1 and a rocker arm ratio of 1.65:1, this motor is dyno tested to give you maximum performance.

High Quality Construction
Nothing but the best parts are used inside including: forged crankshaft, forged I-beam connecting rods with floating piston pins and a high performance oiling system. Built with the BOSS 302 block and Z304D aluminum heads, Z363 fits many of the vehicles originally built with a 289 or 302 8.2" deck height block. Ford Racing Engineers designed Z363 to work both on the street and the strip with strong torque curve that delivers over 390 lb ft from 3500 to the 6500 rpm redline. With a compression ratio of 10.0:1, Z363 runs on unleaded premium pump gas. The hydraulic camshaft included in this motor have a lift of .580"/.602" and a duration of 232/240.
