Ford Racing Releases The Perfect 5.0L Mustang Engine For Supercharging - The New "Aluminator"
By now everyone knows that supercharging your 2011+ 5.0 liter Mustang engine isn’t an ideal proposition for big power.
The engine’s inherent 11:1 compression ratio makes adding more boost an exercise that requires an expert tuning and
supercharger design format to keep it from blowing apart.
Ford Racing has come to the rescue with their new 5.0L Mustang “Aluminator” crate engine for supercharging. It’s the very
same 5.0L 32-valve DOHC V-8 that with Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT), but comes with a lower
native compression ratio of 9.5:1
Using low compression forged pistons and forged H-beam connecting rods, the engine is better suited for your high
horsepower builds as it isn’t as high strung and fragile at the outset.
Inside, you will find Mahle hard anodized forged pistons and Manley H-Beam rods with ARP bolts. The block of course has
cross-bolted mains and you get a large 8 quart deep sump pan too.
