FORD RACING’S NEW 5.0-LITER ‘CAMMER’ REVOLUTIONIZES CRATE ENGINES

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 5, 2002 - Ford Racing Technology will revolutionize the crate-engine concept when its new 5.0-liter Cammer crate engine becomes available in 2003. Instead of modifying a standard production engine to suit non-stock applications, Ford Racing specifically designed the Cammer to be one of the most technologically advanced crate engines any manufacturer has ever offered.

This high-performance retrofit is an all-aluminum, overhead-cam, 4-valve engine that is a perfect repowering upgrade for vintage Mustangs, street rods, and classic truck projects.

According to Ford Racing Technology engine engineer Andy Schwartz, “The 5.0-liter Cammer delivers a healthy 425-430 horsepower at 6700 rpm. The torque curve peaks with 370 foot-pounds at 4000 rpm.”

The 5.0-liter Cammer crate engine is based on the SVT Mustang Cobra’s 4.6-liter 4-valve V-8. However, the crate version has several unique qualities and components, including:

Larger cylinders (94mm vs. 90.2mm) for 5.0 liters of piston displacement
Flanged cylinder liners
Reinforced crankcase web areas
Forged pistons
11.0:1 compression ratio
Ported heads
Higher-lift cams (12mm vs. 10mm)
Beehive-shaped valve springs to accommodate the higher lift
Modified roller-finger followers
Multi-layer steel-insert head gaskets
Higher-flow fuel injectors
3-piece cast-magnesium variable geometry intake manifold
Higher-flow, dual-cone-spray fuel injectors
The 5.0-liter Cammer crate engine will be shipped with a stock Mustang Cobra oil pan and exhaust manifolds. Installation will be eased substantially by a choice of six different 4.6-liter 4-valve modular wiring harnesses being created specifically for the 5.0-liter Cammer crate engine.

“We intend to grow the interest in overhead-cam technology,” said Dan Davis, director, Ford Racing Technology. “This is the future for tuners, project-vehicle builders and aftermarket car and truck enthusiasts. There’s no reason why a crate engine can’t start and perform as well in an aftermarket setting as the engines in production automobiles and trucks do. The 5.0-liter Cammer crate engine will provide top performance, a slick underhood appearance and excellent driveability without the hassles attached to carburetors and distributors.”

The specs sound good!
I wonder how much it sells for though?

Also one problem is the compression ratio, the engine wont be suitable for forced induction as its so high.....

I imagine that engine has to pass all 50 US state pollutions laws to be legal? In which case it would pass here no worries.

Something else of interest on that website was the specification and description of the new Triton 5.4V8. It seems to be the same as the Barra 220 (probably is) with iron block and 3 valve heads. So your new Barra motor is called a 'Triton'. Just like we had 'Cleveland' and 'Windsor' in the past, now we have 'Triton'.

yeah it might pass here, but if you look in the ford motorsports catalogue a lot of the crate motors are designed for off road or marine use only so it would be interesting to find out what the intended use of this motor would be as it would be a good upgrade for some older model falcon owners who want a late model engine upgrade.

Are we going to see crate racing now?

Does anyone know what the 0-100 and top speed of a typical crate is like?

Flanged cylinder liners
I take it this will stop the liner moving when the iron/aluminium expand at different rates.

This is the start of the the "throw-away" engine.

Aluminium is only good for beer cans and body panels. Give me a cast-iron block and cast-iron head any day. New is not necessarily better.

Nice specs though, pity about the materials.

Mind you, aluminium is OK in a race engine, as it doesn't have to last for 100,000k's.
