New 4th Gen Coyote V8 Crate Engine Now Offered for Ford Mustang GT

New Aluminator Crate Engine: 2 Flavors, Boost-Ready

Ford Performance has recently introduced the fourth iteration of its 5.0-liter Coyote V8 as a crate engine under the name Aluminator. Although this new model can be found in the S650 Mustang GT, the crate version boasts enhanced internal components and is offered in two variations.

The newly released Gen 4 Coyote 5.0-liter V8 Aluminator crate engine is now available alongside the 580-horsepower 5.2-liter version, which has been popular for a variety of builds. Like its predecessor, this latest crate engine features an aluminum block, oil pan, and crankshafts that mirror those found in the production Mustang GT’s engine. However, it has been strengthened to meet the demands of high-performance uses.

There are two available options for this product: the M-6007-A50NAD is a naturally aspirated version, boasting a 12.0:1 compression ratio. On the other hand, the M-6007-A50SCD offers a lower compression ratio of 9.5:1, making it a great fit for those seeking to enhance their engine with supercharging or turbocharging.

There are two options available for the Gen 4 Coyote 5.0-liter V8 Aluminator crate engine, both equipped with a sturdy forged steel crankshaft and powerful Mahle Hard Anodized forged pistons coated in Grafal for reduced friction. Manley H-beam connecting rods with durable ARP 2000 bolts ensure secure connections, while the machine’s four-valve-per-cylinder aluminum heads feature roller-finger followers. The Mustang GT intake manifold, designed with a composite material, has been finely tuned and includes dual drive-by-wire 80mm throttle bodies with variable runner control for efficient performance.

The configuration of each crate engine comes equipped with Ford Performance spark plugs, an oil filter, and billet steel gerotor oil pump gears. However, the vehicle’s harnesses, PCM, exhaust manifolds, and alternators are not included in the bundle.

The weight of the engine is 529 pounds for the standard version, and 530 pounds for the supercharged model.The mass of the crate engine measures at 529 and 530 pounds for the naturally aspirated NAD and supercharged SCD versions, respectively.

The latest iteration of the Coyote V8 engine, known as the fourth-generation, boasts the highest level of power among all versions of this eight-cylinder powerhouse. In its factory-tuned form, it can deliver an impressive 480 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque in the production model of the S650 Mustang GT (500 horsepower in the Dark Horse edition). The non-aspirated version of the crate V8 also produces the same amount of power. However, Ford Performance has not disclosed the specific power numbers for the low-compression SCD variant, as they will vary depending on the type of forced induction it is paired with.

The Gen 4 Coyote 5.0-liter V8 Aluminator crate engine is available in two options, both with a price tag of $15,000 – almost half the cost of a new Mustang GT. This makes it a much more economical choice compared to its predecessor, the 5.2-liter Aluminator, which starts at $26,495.
