Share Article

Low-maintenance Ford GT 347 extreme stroker engine offers reliable, turnkey performance.

Smeding Performance introduces the Ford GT 347 Extreme. This reliable, low-maintenance stroker crate engine produces 405 horsepower at 5500 rpm and 420 lb-ft of torque at 4500 rpm. With the torque only a stroker can produce, it’s easy to feel the difference between the Smeding GT 347 Extreme and a 302.

This Smeding engine is not a rebuild. It features a brand-new Ford Sportsman block and all-new top-quality components from top to bottom.

The Smeding Ford GT 347 Extreme boasts such premium parts as full roller valve gear, specially modified Edelbrock cylinder heads with 2.02/1.60 valves, an Edelbrock RPM Air Gap intake manifold, a nodular-iron crankshaft, 4340 steel connecting rods, and moly rings. It also includes specifically designed forged- pistons with wrist pins, that do not go through the oil ring, for superior oil control.

Smeding’s 347 crate engine is perfect for those who want more power without sacrificing durability. For instance, it features 9.7:1 compression, so it can run all day long on pump gas with no problems. Plus, to reduce maintenance demands, Smeding uses a hydraulic roller camshaft. There’s no valve lash to set, so vehicle owners can treat this engine just like the one in a brand-new vehicle. The street performance engine spins to a maximum rpm of 6,700. It even comes with a two-year warranty.

Smeding sells the Ford GT 347 Extreme stroker crate engine for $5,495. Plus, the company will ship this engine anywhere in the continental U.S. or Hawaii and it comes with a standard 2-year warranty.
