Interesting powerplant swap but I think you will struggle to find anyone selling one of those. Maybe Ford would have new ones for sale in one of their motorsport catalogues

Re: where to get ford gt engine

Catskinner has linked to a used Mustang 5.4 block, while not as good as a Ford GT engine, will be alot cheaper.

These are new Ford crate engines from Fordracing

Heres a Boss 302(5.0 Coyote) for $10599.00 from Ford Racing 2012 BOSS 302 5.0L 444HP CRATE ENGINE -- M-6007-M50B It also says common bolt pattern with 4.6 Modular

This engine although not a Ford GT is getting close to one 2011-2012 SHELBY GT500 SUPERCHARGED ALUMINUM 5.4L 550HP CRATE ENGINE -- M-6007-M54

They still have a few Ford GT parts listed as available but not a crate engine any more.

I guess you need to know what you want to spend and get the best you can.

It's listed as a Ford Mustang GT500 short block. Granted, not the whole engine, but it's a start.

Re: where to get ford gt engine

Got to looking in about the transmission, the 5.0\5.8 take a different bell housing than the modular 4.6\5.4 blocks. I'm not sure if this holds true with the newest 5.0 but I think I'd bank on a different bell housing at least.
