Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R Engines On Sale For Limited Time

Following a bit of a lull, Ford Performance has recently added a couple of new crate engines to its catalog, including the 3.3L V6 Duratec and the much-hyped 7.3L V8 Megazilla, which is a more potent version of the existing 7.3L V8 Godzilla powerplant. Last year, Ford Authority reported that the 5.2L V8 Voodoo engine used in the S550-generation Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R would not be joining that list, but now – strangely enough – a limited number of Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R engines are now up for grabs in the Ford Performance catalog, after all.

This is truly an odd addition to the Ford Performance catalog given the fact that the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R and GT350 both went out of production nearly three years ago, which is also the case with the Voodoo powerplant, an engine that isn’t utilized in any other Blue Oval model. Regardless, those that have coveted the high-revving, flat-plane crank V8 can now purchase one directly from Ford, via part number FA-557-AA.

It’s unclear just how many Voodoo engines Ford found laying around – perhaps hidden in the back of a warehouse somewhere – but it notes that it has a “limited number” available for customers to purchase, and also notes that “once they’re gone, there will be no more.” The Voodoo powerplants come as complete dressed engines with intake manifolds, injectors, throttle bodies, and water pumps, but don’t come with an alternator, A/C compressor, FEAD belt, exhaust manifolds, or a warranty, nor does Ford have a control pack to run them, either.

Regardless, these leftover Voodoos will undoubtedly appeal to someone looking for a cool crate engine for their next project, though they’re priced quite steeply at $20k. In any event, the Voodoo is certainly one of the most unique engines that Ford has ever produced, and as such, it will likely have its fair share of suitors.

    Given the problems with production run engines, I can’t believe they aren’t holding onto these for warranty replacements.

      They probably did. They stopped making them after MY2020, so there’s likely very few cars left under the 5 year warranty period. They almost certainly looked at how many engines they had replaced thus far vs sold, retained what they expected to need for the 2020s, and sent the rest of to be sold.

      Kind of a crappy deal though, 20k and you pretty much have to have a gt350 already to control the motor?
