And while the motor employs the 2003-04 SVT Mustang Cobra forged crankshaft with six-bolt mains and Manley H-Beam connecting rods for superior strength, the block itself is specially reinforced in the crankcase web areas for high torque loads.
Ford Racing's new 5.0-liter Cammer crate engine comes with a stock SVT Mustang Cobra oil pan and exhaust manifolds, so an exhaust system - employing Ford Racing prototype metal-substrate catalysts and a set of Ford Racing dual-mode mufflers - was custom-fabricated to put the engine heat to the street.
