M-6007-Z363FT Front Sump
M-6007-Z363RT Rear Sump
Following the old Hot Rodding adage that there is no substitute for
cubes, Ford Racing takes the popular 302-based stroker to the max
with the 500 horsepower Z363 crate engine. By taking the bore out to
4.125", the displacement of the popular 347 stroker has been increased
to 363 cubic inches. Combined with an improved Mahle® piston, the Z363
makes 50 more horsepower and 50 lb-© more torque than the Z347 that
it replaces. Nothing but the best parts are used inside, including: forged
crankshaft© , forged I-beam connecting rods with floating piston pins and
a high-performance oiling system. Built with the BOSS 302 block and
Z304D aluminum heads, Z363 fits many of the vehicles originally built
with a 289 or 302 8.2" deck height block. Ford Racing Engineers designed
Z363 with a strong torque curve that delivers over 390 lb-© of torque
from 3500 rpm to the 6500 rpm redline. With a compression ratio of
10.0:1, Z363 runs on unleaded premium pump gas.
