Aluminator 5.2XS Crate Engine
Engine Break-In Procedure
Fill the engine with 5W50 full synthetic engine oil. For the first 500 miles of operation do not drive for long periods at any single speed, always vary your speed. Do not tow a trailer or put other heavy loads on the vehicle. Check the engine oil and coolant levels daily. At 500 Miles change the engine oil and filter. Check fuel and ignition settings; adjust valves (where applicable).
Ford Performance has taken the technology and hardware developed for the Shelby GT350 Mustang and has created the ultimate Naturally Aspirated, 5.2L cross-plane crankshaft crate engine. With a rating of 580 horsepower, the new Aluminator 5.2 XS is the most powerful naturally aspirated modular crate engine ever built by Ford Performance. This is the worthy successor of our previous rendition-the "A50XS". Every Aluminator is hand assembled by the same technicians that build the Mustang Cobra Jet drag racing engines. Premium aftermarket components are used to ensure durability like unique Manley connecting rods with ARP rod bolts and Mahle(R) forged pistons. Unique components developed specifically for the Cobra Jet racing program are used including Cobra Jet short runner-high RPM intake manifold, 1517 CFM dual 65mm CJ Throttle Body, and Competition High RPM pulse ring. Ford Performance Engineers developed a balanced combination of high end, 580 horsepower and strong mid-range torque with the Cobra Jet intake manifold, unique camshafts and fully CNC ported GT350 cylinder heads. ** Incl. Ford Performance M-9424-M50CJ Cobra Jet tuned intake (will not clear production 2015-2017 hood without modification). Please contact Techline for more information. Ford Performance M-12405-M50A zero (0) heat range spark plugs; Ford Performance M-6731-FL820 oil filter (quantity-1 included); 200 amp alternator and Front Engine Accessory Drive (FEAD) kit as used on the Cobra Jet race car; Vehicle harness and PCM not included. Use Ford Performance Control Pack which contains wiring, PCM and installation kit M-6017-504V -designed for street rod/project car installation with a manual transmission. For automatic transmission version, please see M-6017-M50A Control Pack-custom calibration required with either control pack! Engine does not include engine harness or flywheel/flex plate; Engine mount bosses and bell housing mount pattern common to 4.6L modular engines. Headers Not Included
The Ford Racing Performance Parts crate engines are great to upgrade or replace the existing engine in your Ford car or truck and can also be used to power street rods, customs, kit cars, trucks and off-road projects. These engines also carry a 2 year or 24,000 mile limited warranty!

Where can I see a dyno plot for this motor?
Will this go into a 2014 Raptor? IE: Is there a harness available for this swap, trans mating, Etc?
Will this engine pair fine with the Tremec 3160 transmission that's on the GT350?
Can I put this in a 1999 F150? Or will I have a lot of clearance issues? And if I could do modifications to make it fit and what all would I need to make this work?
On 6r80 cars will this engine still allow remote start?
Is it a drop in for a GT350? As in will it clear the brace/hood, or can I put the gt350 intake manifold on it?
Will this motor handle turbos and how much boost will it take straight from the box
