An impressive aftermarket upgrade option, the 5.2L Aluminator XS includes the following:

“Ford Performance Parts is always developing new crate engines,” says Matt Monroe, Ford Performance Parts Marketing Manager. “In this particular case, we leveraged many of the high-performance production parts created for the GT350production car. FPP engineers made slight modifications to work with the cross-plane crank.  As a result, the Aluminator XS is a capable, high-revving aftermarket offering that we think our customers will appreciate.”
