Crate Engines & Cylinder Blocks

By 1982, the dark days of the smog crisis were fading and the five-liter Mustang’s golden age began. The engine architecture that Ford developed in the ‘80s was the basis for the high-tech Coyote eight-cylinder power plant found in modern Mustangs. If you’re looking to give your Fox Body car some new motivation, look no further than CJ Pony Parts for an excellent selection of 1982 Mustang crate engines and cylinder blocks. Select one of our stout Ford Racing blocks and build it up exactly how you’ve always wanted, or leave the wrenching for someone else to do and have a tuned and ready 1982 Mustang crate engine delivered right to your door.

1982 Crate Engines & Cylinder Blocks

Give Your Mustang the Power It Needs

Power is good – that’s one thing no Mustang owner will argue. But sometimes in the pursuit of more power, parts break. If your Pony is in need of a new power plant, start with the best: A 1982 Mustang cylinder block from the Ford Racing team that has been putting Mustangs in pole position for decades.

The Boss 302 is one of the most popular Mustang cylinder heads on the market, and for good reason. Similar in name and design to the unit used in the fifth-generation reboot of the classic Boss 302 Mustang, it features an 8.2” deck height and a four-bolt main. Designed to accept Ford roller lifter valve trains, it would make an excellent replacement 1982 Mustang cylinder block.

Looking for an option with a little more weight to swing around? The Boss 363 is the Boss 302’s larger cousin, and is a bored and stroked version of the same block. Keep the rev-happy nature that you’ve come to love and reap the rewards of 500+ horsepower from the same block used in the Z363 crate engine.

Speaking of crate engines, our selection of 1982 Mustang crate engines offers something for all tastes and budgets. With the latest generation of the Ford Coyote V8 hitting the streets, you can now enjoy the same high-tech DOCH layout used on today’s highest-performing cars. The five-liter unit comes in two options: An 11:1 version perfect for naturally aspirated builds, as well as a 9.5:1 five-o that’s just begging for you to strap a supercharger to it.

There’s no reason to stop at five liters of displacement though — we have lots of 1982 Mustang crate engines to choose from. Step up to the track-proven 347, or make the jump to the time-tested 351 block with either of two different 374 CID builds, which each produce in excess of 475 horsepower. Only a mountain motor will do, you say? Well then allow us to introduce the 427 and 460 CID Ford Racing crate motors. If that doesn’t get your attention, you might want to start looking into a pilot license.
