Asking About: Mustang 5.0L 302 Short Block Accepts Roller Cam (79-95)


Project Car

I am looking at buying a 1987 Mustang with a 4 Cylinder Engine in it. I want to know if I build an engine using your 5.0L Economy Short Block, once finished out can you run the single turbo on it.
I am looking at a build that will put around 450 to 500 rwhp.

Accepted Answer
We recommend using these in naturally aspirated applications only. Having said that, we do have customers that run boost on them and have had good luck. That number you are looking to achieve is going to be pushing the limits of a factory 302 block. If those hp numbers are your goal, you need to look at stronger options than stock blocks.
