Ford Racing has taken the technology and hardware developed for the Mustang Cobra Jet Drag Racing car and created the ultimate 5.0L crate engine. Rated at 500 horsepower, the new Aluminator XS is the most powerful naturally aspirated modular crate engine ever built by Ford Racing, and each one is hand-assembled by the same technicians that build the Mustang Cobra Jet drag racing engines.
Fortified with premium aftermarket components like Manley connecting rods with ARP rod bolts and Mahle forged pistons, the Aluminator XS has also been endowed with unique components developed specifically for the Cobra Jet racing program. Competition-proven parts include the billet gerotor oil pump, CJ short-runner intake manifold, 1,517-cfm dual-65mm CJ throttle body, high-rpm pulse ring, and 12-quart competition oil pan. Ford Racing Engineers developed a balanced combination of 500 horsepower and strong mid-range torque with the CJ intake manifold, 13mm camshafts and fully CNC ported BOSS 302 cylinder heads. With 500 horsepower and 7,500-plus-rpm capability, Aluminator XS makes a great swap candidate for just about any Ford vehicle.

To satisfy the needs of customer cars with extreme horsepower, Ram Automotive Company recently combined its Force 9.5 dual-disc clutches with the company’s 900-series friction disc, increasing the power-holding capacity from 700 hp to around 950 hp.
Using a metallic-sintered iron-based material, the 900 series disc has a higher coefficient of friction than the standard organic materials, thus combating heat better. The Force 9.5 is small and remarkably light at just around 38 pounds. This combination of compact size and lightweight hastens engine response.
Devised as an economical, entry-level unit, Ram’s Force 9.5 is guaranteed to meet the exact height dimensions of the original factory clutch-flywheel assembly, thus it’s a direct bolt-in. The Force 9.5 cover assembly with metallic-sintered 900-series clutch plate is priced around $1,175 while the organic version is $950. These new clutches fit all popular Ford applications, including Mustang and early muscle cars.
