    The "Five Liter" Is Back


    The foundation for the Mustang GT-R's race-prepared 440-horsepower engine is the new 5.0-liter "Cammer" crate engine from Ford Racing Performance Parts. The engine is rooted in the MOD 4.6-liter four-valve V-8 engine family. However, the motor's flanged cylinder liners help provide 94mm (instead of 90.2mm) cylinder bores, creating a full 5.0 liters of piston displacement.


    And while the motor employs the SVT Mustang Cobra’s forged crankshaft with six-bolt mains and Manley "H-Beam" connecting rods for superior strength, the high-strength Ford Racing block features design reinforcements and a revised material for added strength and high-output durability. The block is specially reinforced in the crankcase web areas for high torque loads.


    Other key differences include forged pistons, an 11.0:1 compression ratio, ported heads, higher-lift cams and beehive-shaped valve springs. The crate engine also features higher-flow fuel injectors and a magnesium, variable-geometry intake manifold.


    The 5.0-liter "Cammer" engine comes with a custom oil pan and features custom-fabricated Tri-Y headers and crossover.

    Oh geez, I want I want. Only thing I would have to say is tone the wing down in the back. Not that I'm complaining about it by any means but it could come down a little bit. I know it's a race car pretty much but it looks a little ricey. None the less :burnout:

    I'm glad i'm not the only one who thinks that it looks abit ricey. I kinda think the wing looks cheap. That's just my opinion...other than that I like it :)

    No offical word but ford wants to use for Trans Am series like back in the '70's
    Price is to start at $36k-$100k+ Depening on what you want all the way up to full race.

    That's friggin awesome! But I agree, different wing. I checked the stats on that beast, 440hp! Definitely give the Vettes a run for their money.

    too bad that 5.0 crate engine is old news, other than the fact is that we might Actually see it in a car and not the ford racing catalog for 14k( i think), they originaly showed it off in the FR500 model which was freakn awesome, and it DID'T have a spoiler, but i imagine you could always take it off.

    Do they still have a trans am race anymore , the only car it has to compete with is the GTO????
