Ford Mustang GT’s Fourth-Generation Coyote V8 Now Offered as Crate Engine

Published Categorized as Ford No Comments on Ford Mustang GT’s Fourth-Generation Coyote V8 Now Offered as Crate Engine

Ford Performance introduces the fourth-generation 5.0-liter Coyote V8, now available as a crate engine under the Aluminator banner. While this latest iteration of the Coyote V8 powers the S650 Mustang GT, the crate version boasts upgraded internals and offers two variants.

Joining the lineup alongside the 580-horsepower 5.2-liter engine utilized in various builds, the Gen 4 Coyote 5.0-liter V8 Aluminator crate engine utilizes the same aluminum block, oil pan, and crankshafts as the production Mustang GT power plant, reinforced for high-performance demands.

Available in two versions, the M-6007-A50NAD is naturally aspirated with a 12.0:1 compression ratio, while the M-6007-A50SCD features a lower 9.5:1 compression ratio, ideal for supercharged or turbocharged applications.

Both variants come equipped with forged steel crankshaft, Mahle Hard Anodized forged pistons with Grafal low friction coating, Manley H-beam connecting rods with ARP 2000 bolts, and four-valve-per-cylinder aluminum heads with roller-finger followers.

The composite Mustang GT intake manifold is finely tuned, paired with production dual drive-by-wire 80mm throttle bodies featuring variable runner control.

Included in the package are Ford Performance spark plugs, an oil filter, and billet steel gerotor oil pump gears. However, vehicle harnesses, PCM, exhaust manifolds, and alternators are not included.

The naturally aspirated NAD variant weighs 529 pounds, while the SCD version tips the scales at 530 lbs.

As the most powerful iteration of the Coyote V8 yet, the fourth-gen Coyote V8 is factory-tuned to deliver 480 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque in the production S650 Mustang GT (500 hp in the Dark Horse).

The naturally aspirated NAD version of the crate V8 matches these figures, although power figures for the low-compression SCD variant are undisclosed, as they are dependent on the forced induction application.

Both variants of the Gen 4 Coyote 5.0-liter V8 Aluminator crate engine are priced at $15,000, offering a more affordable option compared to the original 5.2-liter Aluminator priced at $26,495.
