Dig the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500’s 760-HP Engine? It’s Now Available as a Crate Motor

Did you already blow up your 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 engine and are in need of a replacement? Good news, the mighty Shelby’s 5.2-liter supercharged Predator V-8 is now available from Ford Performance Parts. Sure it is a “replacement engine” and we’re totally not thinking of stuffing it into anything but an ailing Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 and not, um, some old Fox Body or S197 street car… Fingers crossed, we won’t tell if you won’t, you get it—as far as we know, the engine is available to anyone with the desire to buy one and the cash to do so.

The Ford Performance Parts M-6007-M52SC is the same 5.2-liter supercharged V-8 that powers the 2020-present Mustang GT500. It’s even rated at the same 760 hp we saw from our original test of the super snake pony car. The only difference is that, now, you needn’t buy an entire GT500 to get one. Ford Performance sells the engine as a ready-to-install long block with the complete accessory drive, including alternator, supercharger belt, and air conditioning compressor.

If you’re a shade tree mechanic or independent repair shop that happens to have GT500 customers, you’re probably excited for this news, as this engine also comes with a Ford Performance factory warranty. The exact warranty isn’t listed on the FPP Engine Reference Chart—its last update was October 31, 2019, as of this writing—but these engines come with a 24 months and 24,000 miles warranty. Yes, this includes Ford’s pushrod offerings as well.
