Just like the fully built up engines, Aluminator Short Blocks are hand assembled and use Manley® connecting rods with ARP® rod bolts and Mahle® forged pistons.  Two versions are available – 9.5:1 and 11.0:1 compression ratio. 

These Aluminator Short Blocks serve as a strong foundation for the enthusiast that wants to spec and finish a Coyote build to his or her particular application and needs. 

Ford Performance Engineers have taken care of the toughest part of building a new engine by designing a strong and durable Short Block that offers a wide range of power possibilities.  And every Ford Performance Aluminator Short Block is precision internal balanced and hand assembled in the U.S. with performance clearances.

Ford Performance offers a number of components to finish the build including the simple to install Controls Pack to get it up and running in just about any vehicle – from Early Model Mustangs to resto-rods to classic muscle cars to street rods.
