5.0 Crate Motor
Since the day the new 5.0 was unveiled in the '11 Mustang GT, we've been salivating over the possibility that Ford Racing Performance Parts would release a crate engine version of it, complete with a controller. The wait is over, and as of August 15, the 5.0 retrofit package was available directly from Ford Racing Performance Parts as PN M-6007-M50 for $6,999. Not bad at all for what you get:

By The Numbers
11.0:1 compression ratio
Lightweight aluminum cylinder block features cross-bolted main bearing caps and thick main bearing bulkheads for bottom end strength
Piston-cooling jets, optimized oil drain back and windage control improve high-rpm performance
Deep sump oil pan with 8-quart capacity
Tuned composite intake manifold provides efficient air delivery and weight savings
80mm single bore "drive by wire" throttle-body
Four-valve-per-cylinder aluminum heads with roller-finger followers reduce friction
Includes manual transmission engine harness and flywheel
Vehicle harness and PCM not included, use wiring, PCM, and installation kit M-6017-A504V designed for street rod/project car installation.
Does not include alternator, for alternator kit see M-8600-M50ALT
'11 5.0L Mustang engine cover kit available, see M-9680-M50
Engine mount bosses and bellhousing mount pattern common to 4.6L modular engines.
Direct replacement for '11 Mustangs with engine code BG-397-AA
Engine weight: 444 pounds

With mounts and a bellhousing pattern that are common to the 3V 4.6, who's going to be the first one to drop a 5.0 into their '05-10 Mustang?

LS Engine Tech:
March AccesSory Drive
March's Pro-Track LS-1 accessory drive system is a work of art-especially in the black powdercoat shown. It will surely set off any LS engine like a diamond inside a jewel box. OK, we're waxing poetic, but let's face it, when you "pop hood" on cruise night, you want impact, and the Pro-Track delivers. Designed for Corvette, Camaro, and Firebird LS1, LS2, and LS7 engines, the Pro-Track can be used in just about anything, from street rods to muscle cars. We like that it's precision CNC machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and hard coated on high-wear areas for durability. An OEM-style tensioner ensures perfect belt tension and a canister-style power steering pump provides compact hydraulic pressure for power steering.

Kits include: aluminum water pump, alternator, alternator pulley with fan and nose cover, alternator bracket, A/C bracket, Sanden A/C unit, power steering brackets, canister-style power steering pump, power steering pulley with nose cover, OEM-style spring tensioner, crank pulley and balancer hub adapter, idlers, and all mounting hardware. List price is $2,000 (with hub adapter) or $2,195 with fluid dampener.
