Ford 5.0-litre V8 Engine

The 2015 Ford Mustang V8 has been improved from lessons learnt developing the special edition 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302.

The alterations include:

  • Larger intake valves
  • Larger exhaust valves
  • Revised intake camshafts
  • Revised exhaust camshafts
  • Stiffer valve springs
  • Improved cylinder head ports
  • Larger valves
  • Lighter and more durable rods
  • Rebalanced forged crankshaft

Along with the internal changes, the intake manifold has been adapted to allow for partially closed port flow at lower engine speeds. This will improve air-fuel mixture and economy, idle stability and emissions.

These changes should bring around 420 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft of torque, a similar rating to the 2013-2014 Ford Mustang GT.
