Mustang Ford Racing 363Cid Boss 302 Crate Engine 500Hp Rear Sump
Part Number: M-6007-Z363RT
Ford Racing 363CID Boss 302 Rear Sump Crate Engine with 500 Horsepower.
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, the Z363 makes 50 more horsepower and 50 lb. ft. of torque than the Z347 that it replaces. Nothing but the best parts are used inside including: 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, 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. from 3500 to the 6500 rpm redline. With a compression ratio of 10.0:1, Z363 runs on unleaded premium pump gas.
*This rear sump style crate engine will work with 1965-1973 Mustangs that have converted to a rack and pinion steering setup. 1979-newer Mustangs are already equipped to work with the rear sump application.
