Is this the original 4.6 block off the 3v or 2v

Stanggang

  • Hey Stanggang, This block is of its own creation to be applied to those modular 4.6 motors so its not necessarily based off any of them. But its meant for any 96-2010 mustang that came with the modular 4.6.

I see this engine is built for 4.6 engines. I have an 06 3 valve. I see above where you advised to have heads port patched and to check for clearance. Which heads are recommended for this block if not factory heads?

So, is the block used for this the m-6010-BOSS50? If so, good option, but where is the specification information regarding pistons, rods and crank, etc. used.? I was considering buying the aforementioned bare block, but this might be a faster/more efficient way to go.

KELDOG

  • This block is the same as the Boss block, but it is simply bored out. The crankshaft is forged steel with a 3.750 inch stroke. The connecting rods are forged steel H beams that are 5.850 inches. The pistons are a forged aluminum dish.

Have an 09 Crown Vic, will this fit up and what type of trannys and differential gears pls. Want every bit of 800HP at the wheels.

JohnW

  • Unfortunately, all the parts we carry are designed for 1979-2017 Ford Mustangs and F150s. We cannot advise fitment for a 2009 Ford Crown Victoria.

What is the compression ratio on the shortblock?

CalN

  • Compression ratio on the Ford Performance 5.3L Modular Stroker Shortblock will vary depending on the combustion chamber volume of your cylinder heads, as well as head gasket thickness.

    Perfect

    Bought this as a swap out for my car. Can't describe the power with the setup I have but it is a true bang for your buck if you have the extra cash and time to turn this block into a powerhouse!
