Ford Racing 5.0L Aluminum Race Block

Ford Racing Performance Parts has announced the addition of a new 5.0L aluminum race block to their catalog. Part number M-6010-M50R, the block is a special casting of the standard Coyote 5.0L block that features a number of changes to support higher horsepower engine builds including an upgraded water jacket to better support the cylinder bores and a cast-in brace on the intake side of the bore. Like the standard Coyote block, the race version features low pressure cast 319 aluminum construction, pressed-in thin-wall iron liners, cross-bolted nodular iron main bearing caps and 11mm cylinder head bolts.

The introduction of the new block comes in response to the motorsports community requesting a stouter version of the Coyote 5.0L V8. “Mustang racers were asking for an aluminum block that could deal with higher boost levels,” Ford Racing’s Andrew Casselberry told us.

Suggested retail pricing for the Ford Racing 5.0 aluminum race block is listed at $2,950.00
