The new 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 starts from a reasonable--given its level of performance--$40,995, but the heart of the car, its mighty 5.0-liter V-8, can be all yours for just $11,995. That’s because Ford is now offering its Boss 302 V-8 as a standalone ‘crate engine’ through its Ford Racing division.
The engine is listed as part number M-6007-M50B in the Ford Racing Performance Parts catalog and in its standard trim offers 444 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. Its specs include a 7,500 rpm redline, CNC ported cylinder heads, forged pistons and a ‘runners in box’ composite intake manifold.
The engine also has an 11.0:1 compression ratio, lightweight aluminum construction, a large sump with an 8.5-quart oil pan, the aforementioned composite intake system with shorter runners, an 80 mm single-bore ‘drive by wire’ throttle body and sodium-filled exhaust valves.
Note that a vehicle wire harness and power control module are not included.
