5.4L forged iron short block in S197


thinking of buying FORD RACING 5.4L FORGED IRON SHORT BLOCK FOR FORCED INDUCTION -- M-6009-C54SC4 and putting it on an engine hoist and building a S/C 5.4L in my garage as I can afford parts but big concern first... would it fit into my 06' Gt lol. I don't know much about engine blocks and would hate to blow like 10-15 g's just to sell it

From the website: "Will not work with 3 valve cylinder heads"

If you wanna go that route, pick up an Aluminator. Ford Racing Performance Parts

I saw that, I plan on selling off my 4.6L whole so all new 5.4L parts would be bought
EDIT: I think my problem is I love the new 5.4L engines and absolutely hate the new body styles...

To answer your question yes the block will fit and you can use you factory motor mounts but you may have clearance issues with your hood if you do a twin screw, tvs, roots blower etc. If you do a centri or turbo build then you should be fine.

TY Very Much! Knowing that it will fit is awesome. As for new mounts, perfect and if all else I can look into costs of new ones if it ends up being a hassle or if anyone knows of problems. I have fellow mustang owners that would be proud to do the same project as myself if we can get it all figured out

I already planned on getting a new hood wayyyy in advance. The stock hood was a fail imo. I want Kaenen Mustang 3in Cowl Hood - Unpainted (05-09) at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping! or Cervini's Mustang Ram Air Hood - Unpainted (05-09) at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!

Not sure I would replace a 4.6L aluminum block with a bigger 5.4L iron block. You'll be using some of that extra power to make up for the heavier engine.

Go with a JDM block over the alluminator. Its a stroker block so it has a 5.0 displacement and its got stock compression which will help you keep the hp up without upping the boost to high.

I'm actually trying to stick to the 5.4L if I can. Sadly can't find an aluminum 5.4L very quickly. I understand putting it in the '06 GT I'll need the gt500 crossmember

Will the 5.4 fit in the 06? I thought Ford had to make some changes to the engine bay to make room for the 5.4 in the 2007 gt500?

im not sure you can get a forged block? i know you can get a forged rotating assembly but i think your options for blocks are cast iron or aluminum.

Thank You very much bro! I'd rep you again if I could. I don't like their

Due to the custom nature of MMR shortblocks ALL customers paying with a credit card
will be billed when the order is placed (prior to engine assembly and shipping),
All MMR shortblocks are non-refundable regardless if the item has shipped or not.

I kind of don't want some sort of crap job done or whatever or something busting like 20 miles down the road

I like the idea of a 5.4L too and would like to see what a supercharged one would put out. I know they have a lot more torque than the 4.6L engines. I think the power will go up incrementally.

I wouldn't go with a Ford Racing "4.6L" 9.8:1 when there's a proven "5.0L" stroker with 9.8:1 compression.

There's no replacement for displacement!!!
