Ford’s new 427ci Windsor Crate Engine… 535 HP!

Ford Racing has joined the big crate small block engine game with an all new 427ci, 351W based on the new Boss 351W Block. With a hydraulic roller cam, it makes an impressive 535 hp and 545 lb ft of torque and 10.5 compression. Not bad, and for a street price likely in the $7500 range, this could make an easy 10-second Fox body street/strip ride.
