I would not get the Ford "crate" motor
They farm that stuff out to the lowest bidder and quality has suffered.

Find a good local engine builder to build same thing "right" and stand behind it.

Will easily hold 1000rwhp.

DSS for years by many has been considered crap.

To the original poster how much power do you want to make or better yet can the rest of the car support? I know people who have bought Ford crate motors and been without any issues at all but going to boil down to ones goals as to whether or not it is a good tool for the end result.

I Was hoping to get around 550-600 rwhp, I know that stock motors can make around 400-450rwhp and be reliable. So I figured that the boss crate would eliminate the spiltting the block issues. But will the rest of the motors internals be ok?

I think you would be more than fine. I know someone down here making just a hair more than range with one of the old crate motors Ford sold that were based on the B50 block. He has had that setup for 3 years now in his daily driver and not a single issue.

Then spend a ton of money on something you do not need just so you can have peace of mind.

They say what goes up must come down but I ain't reached my cruising altitude.
Take a look at what I did but can you imagine what I'm about to do.

bigdyno.com would be who I HIGHLY suggest. Really big on the local scene here in NC, especially with mustangs. His engines allways seem to run better/make more power than anyone else. For porting, Id also highly suggest him
