[11/21/2002] Ford Racing's New 5.0-Liter 'Cammer' Revolutionizes Crate Engines

Ford Racing Technology will revolutionize the crate-engine concept when its new 5.0-liter Cammer crate engine becomes available in 2003. Instead of modifying a standard production engine to suit non-stock applications, Ford Racing specifically designed the Cammer to be one of the most technologically advanced crate engines any manufacturer has ever offered.

This high-performance retrofit is an all-aluminum, overhead-cam, 4-valve engine that is a perfect repowering upgrade for vintage Mustangs, street rods, and classic truck projects.

According to Ford Racing Technology engine engineer Andy Schwartz, “The 5.0-liter Cammer delivers a healthy 425-430 horsepower at 6700 rpm. The torque curve peaks with 370 foot-pounds at 4000 rpm.”

The 5.0-liter Cammer crate engine is based on the SVT Mustang Cobra’s 4.6-liter 4-valve V-8. However, the crate version has several unique qualities and components, including:

* Larger cylinders (94mm vs. 90.2mm) for 5.0 liters of piston displacement
* Flanged cylinder liners
* Reinforced crankcase web areas
* Forged pistons
* 11.0:1 compression ratio
* Ported heads
* Higher-lift cams (12mm vs. 10mm)
* Beehive-shaped valve springs to accommodate the higher lift
* Modified roller-finger followers
* Multi-layer steel-insert head gaskets
* Higher-flow fuel injectors
* 3-piece cast-magnesium variable geometry intake manifold
* Higher-flow, dual-cone-spray fuel injectors

The 5.0-liter Cammer crate engine will be shipped with a stock Mustang Cobra oil pan and exhaust manifolds. Installation will be eased substantially by a choice of six different 4.6-liter 4-valve modular wiring harnesses being created specifically for the 5.0-liter Cammer crate engine.

“We intend to grow the interest in overhead-cam technology,” said Dan Davis, director, Ford Racing Technology. “This is the future for tuners, project-vehicle builders and aftermarket car and truck enthusiasts. There’s no reason why a crate engine can’t start and perform as well in an aftermarket setting as the engines in production automobiles and trucks do. The 5.0-liter Cammer crate engine will provide top performance, a slick underhood appearance and excellent driveability without the hassles attached to carburetors and distributors.”
