Ford Racing offers some very interesting gear for the go-fast racer or modifier, including whole engines available for whatever project one can come up with. The Ford division is now offering a very special package: the 5.0-liter V-8 heart of the new 2011 Ford Mustang GT.

Available from August 15, the new engine--part # M-6007-M50--is rated at the same 412 horsepower and 390 pounds-feet of torque as the production unit found in the Mustang. Key elements include Ford’s Ti-VCT cam-torque-actuated variable camshaft timing system and all-aluminum four-valve-per-cylinder engine design, plus specially designed tubular exhaust headers.

The engine also comes with a manual transmission harness and flywheel, piston-cooling jets and an 80 mm single bore “drive by wire” throttlebody. Importantly, the package does not include an alternator. The entire weight is 444 pounds.

Pricing for the 5.0-liter V-8 crate engine will start at $6,999.
