Hey bigblack, first lose the all caps. Some folks are sensitive about
the use of those.
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
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
Flanged cylinder liners
Reinforced crankcase web areas
11.0:1 compression ratio
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
"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
