ford engine identification

I am currently working on an old ford convertible with a ford racing technologies svo short block in it. I found I D plate on it with part # M-6009-A392 build date 6/19/2002. I went to web site could not find that part #. Can anyone direct me in the right direction to find out more about this engine. from looking at there part#'s, I would guess the 6009 part refers to short block and that the 392 part means displacement.

Re: ford engine identification

This is info that I have found on that part#.....

The M-6009-A392 engine shortblock assembly is used to build the A392 engine. This engine is intended for drag race or street rod use (in vehicles not subject to emission restrictions). The pistons are notched to suit GT-40 aluminum cylinder heads with cams up to .600" lift.
Short block components include:
• M-6010-A351/A58 Sportsman 351W two bolt block.
• Federal Mogul H132CP 4.030" cast hypereutectic aluminum pistons with pins & pin locks.
• M-6200-D351 Sportsman high strength SAE 4130 forged steel connecting rods with 3/8" ARP 190,000 psi rod bolts. Rods are bushed for floating pins.
• M-6303-A385 3.85" stroke cast stroker crank.
• Federal mogul #7155CH high performance rod bearings
• Federal Mogul #130M main bearings.
• Grant #CC4000H030 piston rings.
1. VALVE TO PISTON CLEARANCE MUST BE CHECKED with any high lift camshaft. Recommended minimum clearance is .100" intake, .125" exhaust, .060” radial.
2. Rod shoulder to cam lobe clearance must also be checked. Machine the rod shoulders as required to obtain .050" minimum clearance.
3. Check and/or RETORQUE THE MAIN AND ROD BOLTS! Mains should be 105 ft./lbs., rods are 50 ft./lbs.
4. The crank has been externally balanced using standard 351W imbalance in the damper and flywheel. The M-6316-C351 damper and M-6375-A302 157-tooth flywheel are recommended for use with this assembly.
5. The M-6675-A58 oil pan kit can be used for Mustang and other Fox chassis vehicle applications.
6. Ford Racing Performance Parts 392 engine development testing using this shortblock with unported X303 GT-40 heads and other components of the A392 engine made 430 HP @ 5500 RPM.

From that info I would say it is 351ci
I hope this is a help and is correct for that part#
