Where Can You Find Factory Ford Crate Engines?

Ford crate engines can be purchased from a number of dealers, including both online and brick-and-mortar sellers. You can find a list of authorized dealers on the Ford Performance webpage.

Ford Performance produces five lines of crate engines: Modular, 302, 351, Sealed and EcoBoost. These engines range in size from 122 cubic inches to 427 cubic inches and produce from 252 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque to 520 horsepower and 545 pound-feet of torque. None of the crate engines are turbocharged or supercharged, but Ford sells street-legal supercharger kits for some versions.

Since Ford Performance's crate engines are designed to be suitable for racetrack and dragstrip use, they feature many high-performance parts, including forged pistons, connecting rods and crankshafts. In some cases, an aluminum engine block is available in place of the original cast-iron block. While each crate engine is fully assembled, not all engines include an intake or distributor.

As of 2015, prices for a Ford Performance crate engine start at just above $7,000, and the most expensive version costs roughly $15,000. While these prices are higher than those charged by some aftermarket crate-engine builders, Ford, unlike most builders, warranties its crate engines for 24 months or 24,000 miles.
