FORD RACING 306CI 340HP CRATE ENGINE

If you're looking for an awesome, mild-mannered replacement engine for your five liter-equipped late model Mustang, look no further than the Ford Racing M-6007-X302 crate engine. Each crate engine starts out life with a seasoned five liter roller block. And by seasoned, I do you mean used.
Then, a precision machined stop crankshaft is bolted into place and then outfitted with eight forged steel connecting rods that are attached to forged aluminum pistons. A stock flow oil pump and pickup tube are bolted on underneath a Mustang-specific dual sump oil pan. This oil pan does not accept the low oil level sensor.
All new freeze plugs, threaded plugs, and dowel pins are installed in the block, followed by a Ford Racing E303 camshaft, double roller timing chain, timing cover, and a 50 ounce harmonic balancer. The timing cover accepts a reverse rotation water pump, common to '79 to '93 Mustangs running a serpentine belt accessory drive. For '94/'95 Mustangs, you will need to swap out the timing cover for that specific application. Same goes for anyone wanting to run a V belt accessory drive.
A set stock-style graphite head gaskets are laid into place, followed by a set of Ford Racing GT40 X306 aluminum cylinder heads. They're torqued down using stock-style head bolts. And it even has the correct one with the stud on the end and for you EFI guys. That way, you have a place to bolt down your fuel line bracket. These X306 heads feature a 64 cc combustion chamber, yielding an approximate nine to one compression ratio with the pistons included.
Valve sizing is 194, 154 exhaust. And they're topped off with 1.6 ratio aluminum roller rocker arms, actuated by hardened steel Ford Racing push rods. The lifters riding on that E303 cam are a set of stock-style Ford racing roller lifters.
The top side is covered up with a set of these chrome steel Ford Racing valve covers. And they're great for a carbureted application. For anyone running EFI, you want to go and take them off and replace them with either your existing valve covers or a new set of Ford racing EFI-style valve covers.
The back side of the crankshaft does not have a pilot bearing installed, which is great if you running an automatic. If you are running a manual transmission, you will need to go ahead and tap in a new pilot bearing. For your flywheel or flex plate, make sure and get the correct 50 ounce balance.
A few of the nice finishing touches on this motor are the fact that it already has the correct Motorcraft spark plugs installed in the cylinder heads, a one piece rear main seal, a one piece rubber oil pane gasket, a brand new dipstick, and a new set of intake gaskets. Last but not least, the needed threaded plugs are already installed in the cylinder heads, both front and back so you don't have to worry about running those down at the last minute.
Now for the real numbers everybody's been waiting on, horsepower and torque. On Ford Racing's engine dyno with an Edelbrock RPM air gap intake, Holley 650 carburetor and long tube headers, it put down 340 horsepower at 5,000 RPM. If you're running an EFI set up, expect to make a slight bit less. And of course, your rear wheel numbers are going to vary by about 15% to 20% less than the published numbers.
And if you really needed any more reasons to buy this engine over building one of your own, it also comes with a two year, 24,000 mile warranty.
