You have been patient, you have waited eagerly, and now the very popular 5.0-liter crate engine from Ford Racing is less than two weeks away from being available to all you horsepower hungry Ford fans! CJ Pony Parts has the scoop on the new crate engine available from Ford Racing, and is ready to start taking pre-orders, today!
At the beginning of the summer, we all fell in love with the 2011 5.0L Mustang. An iconic car, paired with an updated version of its favorite engine, was all any Ford fan could talk about. Then we started asking, “When can I make MY Mustang a 5.0?!”
In short order, Ford Racing announced that near the end of the summer, they would have a 5.0-liter crate engine available to drop into your vehicle of choice. Today, Ford Racing has announced that the 5.0 engine will be available on August 15th, 2010. CJ Pony Parts already has the crate engine (Ford part #: M-6007-M50) on our website available for pre-order at a special pre-order sale price. We are proud to announce that it will also qualify for our Free Shipping policy!
