Ford Racing has taken the technology and hardware developed for the Mustang Cobra Jet Drag Racing car and created the ultimate 5.0L crate engine. With a rating of 500 horsepower, the new Aluminator XS is the most powerful naturally aspirated modular crate engine ever built by Ford Racing. Every Aluminator is hand assembled by the same technicians that build the Mustang Cobra Jet drag racing engines. Premium aftermarket components are used to ensure durability like Manley connecting rods with ARP rod bolts and Mahle® forged pistons. Unique components developed specifically for the Cobra Jet racing program are used including the billet gerotor oil pump, CJ short runner-high RPM intake manifold, 1517 CFM dual 65mm CJ Throttle Body, Competition High RPM pulse ring and 12 quart competition oil pan. Ford Racing Engineers developed a balanced combination of high end 500 horsepower and strong mid-range torque with the CJ short runner-high RPM intake manifold, 13MM camshafts and fully CNC ported BOSS 302 cylinder heads.
