Crate Engines & Cylinder Blocks

The 1980 Mustang is popular with racing enthusiasts, and it’s easy to see why. However, the stock Mustang engine isn’t quite enough if you want to take your pony to the race track. Modifying and upgrading different parts can solve the problem to some extent, and adding a turbocharger will further hike the horsepower. And if you’re looking for an ultimate mod-job, there is no better way than to install a brand new 1980 Mustang crate engine from CJ Pony Parts.

1980 Crate Engines & Cylinder Blocks

The most powerful engine that Ford ever fitted to the 1980 Mustang was a 4.9-liter 140 hp unit, which, frankly, isn’t what you expect to see in a Mustang today. There is a limit to how well the stock engine can be tuned, and once that is reached, you risk ruining the engine for good. Because of this, we recommend that if you want to use your 1980 Mustang for racing, you replace the stock motor with crate engine. And at CJ Pony Parts, we can help you find the ideal crate engine & cylinder block for your pony car.

We have a large inventory of crate engines and components from renowned manufacturers like Ford Racing. They also build race engines for their factory teams, and their success on the racetrack is clearly reflected in the quality of the crate engines they produce.

• Built to factory specifications – Crate engines from Ford Racing are built factory specifications, and can be easily installed in a 1980 Mustang. Installation is highly intuitive, although a trained professional can certainly help.
