To give our SVE Pace Car a great foundation for future modifications, we turned to Ford Racing to supply us with the ultimate 5.0L Coyote Motor - better known as the Aluminator XS Crate Engine. This 5.0L 4V motor is essentially a Boss 302 crate engine on steroids. It features just about every Ford Racing engine component bolted onto a fully forged short block.
Once we had the engine installed in our SVE Pace Car, we decided to put Ford Racing's 500 horsepower claims to the test! Thanks to the guys at VMP Tuning for stopping by and letting us get some quality time on their mobile dyno. After two pulls on the dyno and some tune adjustments we made an impressive 457 HP and 388 Ft. TQ. Considering drivetrain losses at 10%, the Ford Racing 500 HP claims seem to be spot on. This completely forged internal motor will make for a perfect foundation for future performance mods no matter what we decide to throw at it!
Some of the performance parts that go into the Aluminator XS engine include:
