interestingly enough, the 4.6L engine is available here in aus for around $7500, but i contacted ford about the cammer 5.0L and they said it wont be available here as it is not intended for road use, meaning it is a race engine, and does not comply with our emission rules or ADR's, i imagine a smart tuner could tune it to our emission reg's. would be nice if that engine was available in the FPV range. see power specs below.
The 5.0L DOHC 4-valve “Cammer” engine is an upgraded variant of the 4.6L DOHC 4-valve Mustang Cobra engine, with numerous changes for improved power and durability. This engine is completely electronically managed. As part of the “Cammer” crate engine program, a stand-alone harness and engine management computer will be available separately. This will allow the engine to be used for many applications.
With proper headers (not included) and low restriction air intake and vehicle exhaust systems, the engine will exceed 400 Bhp and have a very broad torque curve, peaking over 365 ft./lbs.
Among the many features of the 5.0L Cammer are:
* Variable geometry long/short runner, magnesium intake manifold assembly
* All new Ford Racing 356 alloy aluminum block, specifically designed for this 5.0L engine program
* Ford Racing high-flow cylinder heads
* Ford Racing 12mm lift camshafts with unique valves, springs and rocker arms
* High-strength racing connecting rods
* Forged pistons with 11:1 compression ratio (nominal)
* Complete with power steering pump, alternator and air conditioning compressor
* Photo and specs may vary
This assembly is basically a complete package of all the high-performance modular DOHC 4-valve components being offered in the Ford Racing Performance Parts Catalog. These parts are currently in use as the core for a number of widely varying race engine applications. Modular 4.6L and 5.0L DOHC 4-valve engines have been successfully used in drag racing, circle track and road racing. Further component development takes place on a continuous basis at Ford Racing, and will result in ever expanding parts availability for this engine family
The 4.6 (and 5.0 cammer derivative) will rev much harder than the 5.4, but you need to rev them to get the power out of them. The 5.4 Boss motors have big torque at lower engine speeds than the shorter-stroked engines. Torque is what you need to get our heavy Falcons moving (Mustangs are much lighter).
I'm just after some info on whats the best XR6 Tickford engine?
The EL or the AU? (None VCT)
I'v herd the AU has the better head,Tappered Valve Springs and also the AU has a stronger crank carrier and also the AU has a stronger sump,a nice alloy sump unlike the tin sump on the EL...
I am new to the tickford engine and am after some info for building a 4L Straight 6, Tickford engine.
I'm a mechanic and am building up a engine.
Questions I am asking are:
What engine would be best to run for performanc?
When rebuilding the engine.
Going to repalce...
Hey guys im in a bit of a pickle my missus housemate thought itd be a good idea to drive her pride and joy 290 pursuit after a few too many and the long story short i need a new rear right axle and cant find one for it or an xr8 (assuming there the same) anywhere ford dont make them anymore so...
I have a problem with my BF Super Pursuit. When the car is cold. The P,R,N,D is missing on the instrument cluster and the auto is in limp mode. However, if I warm the car up, drive it around the block, and then turn it off and back on, the P,R,N,D is on the instrument cluster and the auto is...
