LIVONIA, Mi. (March 13, 2019) – AmericanMuscle’s (AM) Justin Dugan visited Performance Assembly Solutions in Livonia, Michigan to see exactly how Ford Performance hand-assembles their Coyote V8 and Ford GT V6 engines. To start, Justin spends some time with Ford Performance Engine Engineer Ron Ewert to examine their Aluminator SC Crate Engines as well as the 5.2L Voodoo engine found in the Mustang FP350S turnkey racecar.


From initial inspection and basic assembly, to quality checks and testing, Justin puts Ron’s knowledge to work regarding technical engine building and the relationship of the Coyote to Modular Ford engines. As a special treat, Ron gives Justin an exclusive look at Ford’s GT engine building laboratory, displaying 3.5L Ford GT Ecoboost engines in various states of assembly. Finally, Justin gets some one-on-one time with Ford Performance Motorsports Engineer Dan German to talk about his crucial role in the development of Ford Performance parts like air intakes, control packs, power modules, and wiring harnesses.
