Default crate engine..

The motor i want to build is going to cost me to much right now. i am only 18 and i cant afford to build it. so i think i will wait till after school. but anyways i was looking on summit and found this crate engine. here is the part number do a search and check it out FMS-M-6007-XE3M. im just wondering if that motor is good for the amount of Hp it says it puts out. and also would i be able to put atleast 9 lbs of boost on this motor since the compression is low at 9:1?

Default RE: crate engine..

heres the specs..
These 5.0L/302 GT-40 crate engine assemblies from Ford Racing are the perfect way to increase the performance of any ride. They include assembled aluminum GT-40 cylinder heads with 1.94 in. intake and 1.54 in. exhaust valves. The heads have 178cc intake runners and 62cc exhaust runners. The camshaft provides significant horsepower increases above 2,500 RPM and good low-end torque. Valve lift is .498 in. on both intake and exhaust. Duration at .050 inches is 220 degrees on both intake and exhaust. These engines feature a 9.0:1 compression ratio (nominal), and produce approximately 345 HP, making them great for limited budgets.

Engines come assembled with:

* Cast crankshaft
* Pistons
* GT-40 valve train
* Ford valve covers
* Water pump
* Rear sump Fox style 5 qt. oil pan and pickup
* Harmonic balancer
* Spark plugs
* Engine oil dipstick
* Flywheel

sounds like the one you suggest

I'd say if you got the money go ahead and get the engine, they are great and if you want more power from it you can still do a lot with that engine. If it were me and I had the money to spare I'd say hell yes.

that 345 HP they get is with the stuff they put on that is not included in the crate engine like the intake manifold/carb and so on. so if you put on what they said that got the 345 HP you can get that but you can get better numbers with better parts then they used. but if you use your stock intake you have now then you probally wont get those numbers. read this. you dont have to get it here since its 300.00 over summits price but they give a little more info than summit. http://www.jegs.com/cgi-bin/ncommerc...76&prmenbr=361

I personally wouldn't put 9 lbs of boost on a GT-40 crate motor - cast crank, hyper pistons, not as durable as a pre 93 stock engine.

Personally I'd rebuild the existing engine and chuck a set of heads on it - with 24 lb fuel injectors and your existing setup you could save some money and have a better engine.

yeah i want to throw a RPM II manifold on there and a couple other things. i think i could get close to 345. then i will just wait a couple years and start slowly building a motor that can handle 14lbs of boost and be streetable. with this crate motor can anyone guess quarter mile times for it?

If you're going to build a motor for a lot of boost, you'll want to start with a stronger block. Stock block 302's I hear tend to split in half at about 550-600hp.

theres alot more factors to 1/4 mile times than HP/TQ numbers. i personally dont race but there are people that can help you more in that area. cause you can have all the HP/TQ in the world but if you cant get it to the ground. then what good is all that HP/TQ. good traction is a must to get the best out of a car. suspension plays a part in it. again theres is lot of factors in racing then just HP.
