460 CUBIC INCH 575 HP BOSS CRATE ENGINE-REAR SUMP PAN

Ford Performance has taken its Boss Block to the max with the biggest small block Windsor crate engine ever - the Z460.  With 575 horsepower and 575 Lb. Ft. of torque, Z460 packs a pump gas fueled punch that works well on the street and on the track. 

The foundation of Z460 is the legendary Ford Performance Boss block topped off with high port/high flow Z-Heads.  Premium components from the best aftermarket companies are used throughout the engine, like a SCAT® forged steel crankshaft, SCAT® forged H-beam connecting rods, forged Mahle® pistons and Clevite® bearings.  And every Ford Performance Z460 engine is hand assembled in the U.S. with performance clearances.
