Build it up your way by adding heads, camshaft, intake and oil pan. Build up a powerful 8.2" deck engine for your Mustang, Bronco, F-100, or other fast Ford.

This is the same short block used in the 500 HP Z363 crate engine. By taking the bore out to 4.125-inch, the displacement of the popular 347 stroker has been increased to 363 cubic inches. The Z363 short block fits many of the vehicles originally built with a 289 or 302 8.2-inch deck height block.
