Product Description

Ford Racing 363 Cubic Inch Boss 302 Front Sump Crate Engine with 500 Horsepower.

The Ford Racing 363CID Boss 302 crate engine hits 500 horsepower without breaking sweat. It’s a tried-and-tested unit popular with Mustang enthusiasts around the world. It delivers high horsepower with a compact footprint that makes your pony car a blast to drive as you blaze down your favorite stretch of highway. With so much demand for this crate engine, CJ Pony Parts brings you the latest and greatest Mustang parts to spice up your ride. This front sump 302 engine works in Mustangs built from 1965-73, and its high output and strength will transform your Mustang into a fun, powerful, and capable muscle car.

The Ford Racing Boss 302 Crate Engine Delivers an Overall Boost in Power.

This crate engine is manufactured using only the strongest materials and individual components so you can be sure you’re getting quality for your dollar. In addition, its durable and reliable exterior is built to fit perfectly under the hood of your pony car while staying reliably supported at all times. In general, this 302 engine is the ideal motor for long-term use. Following the old Hot Rodding adage that there is no substitute for cubes, Ford Racing takes the popular 302-based stroker to the max with the 500 horsepower, Z363 crate engine. By taking the bore out to 4.125", the displacement of the popular 347 stroker has been increased to 363 cubic inches.

Combined with an improved Mahle piston, this Z363 makes 50 horsepower and 50 lb. ft. of torque more than the Z347 that it replaces. Nothing but the best parts are used inside, including a forged crankshaft, forged I-beam connecting rods with floating piston pins and a high-performance oiling system.

Built with the Boss 302 block and Z304D aluminum heads, the Z363 fits many of the vehicles originally built with a 289 or 302 8.2" deck height block. Ford Racing Engineers designed Z363 to work both on the street and the strip with a strong torque curve that delivers over 390 lb. ft. of torque from 3500 to the 6500 rpm redline. With a compression ratio of 10.0:1, the Z363 runs on unleaded premium pump gas.

*This front sump crate engine will work with 1965-1973 Mustangs. The 1979-newer Mustangs are equipped to work with rear sump engines and will require the rear sump version of this engine.

will this 363/500hp stroker work in my 89 with the stock fuel injection and distributor, it has mass air. I know it will need adjustments to run. would you have any suggestions. its just a weekend nice weather car, thanks. kevin

Asked by: saleen206
This is a carbureted engine - you can likely modify it to work with fuel injection, but we don't know exactly what that would look like.

Will this engine work with an original stock C4 or would I need to upgrade to a beefier C4

Asked by: mikesmith73
The original, stock C4 isn't really rated to handle that kind of power. If you add some performance parts to it, many racers have had few issues up to 500+ horsepower, so you should be OK - no need for a second C4.
