So im looking at buying a 512 ford engine that svo ford performance built. I cant find any information on it anywhere. supposedly had over 700hp, cobra jet SVO aluminum heads, forged crankshaft, je pistons, H beam rods, solid roller camshaft, edelbrock victor intake.. heres a picture of it. Originally came out of a boat. Can anyone find info on this build from ford to verify the build so i can see specs or informational on it before i buy it??

I recall them being around quite a long time ago, but now there's nothing except YouTube videos on them. Even Jegs has nothing but 460s and 572s now. But they DID exist!! There's nothing to be found using several search parameters, I'm afraid.

You'd have a unicorn, for sure!!

Randy Malik at RM competition would be the guy to check with.

The Original 4.3 stroke crate engines used factory truck rods, a cast scat crank with 2.5" rod journals and a mild solid roller. With those original CJ heads output was not near 700 hp. Closer to 600 to 640.

A standard bore 4.3" stroke engine displaces 513.5 inches.
A + .030" is the typical 521.


Not sure what you have there. Maybe an upgraded version.

There is a 514 crate engine listed in 2004. And a 521 in 2009.

514 utilized std bore new blocks and the 521 were at + .030" utilizing "Seasoned" blocks lol

After reported OEM style rod failures ford went to a 6.605" h beam.

Never heard of that one . I fitted one of the early 460 crate motors 560HP/535TQ to a car here back in about 98. A friend still has it. It had those early CJ heads
One of the early (1999) 514 Ford racing crates with those heads were listed at 600 HP , 590 TQ

Kinda like the motor in question.
In the 2003 Ford Racing catalog,M-6007-C514,600 hp,590 tq,Eagle H beams,new standard block,cast nodular 4.30 crank,,mechanical roller cam,.647 lift,254 in,.258 ex @ .050 lobe lift,C429 CJ heads,Victor Dom intake,Ford Racing forged pistons,9.8 cr.
I doubt this was ever sold as a Ford Racing crate originally. Might be rolling the dice on this one but who knows??

I bought one of the 514 short blocks in 1999. If you look in an old Ford SVO parts catalog from the late 1990's you will find it listed as a 514. As stated they were stock truck blocks, had a 4.3 Scat cast crank, factory rods with ARP bolts installed and TRW forged pistons. The pistons had some tiny reliefs in them but I'm pretty sure they were listed as flat tops.

What's amazing is now 15 years later you can...............easy build that 800+ hp with 1 point less comp and .100 less lift and run pump gas!!....(y)........how times have changed!
