A stroked Windsor, at 302 inł (4.9 L), was introduced in 1968. This engine was used in various Ford cars and trucks through early 2001. There were 2 and 4 barrel versions of this engine, and the 1968 Shelby GT350 used this engine. For 1968 only a special very high performance version of the 302 was also produced. Its main features included an angled cast iron high rise intake manifold and large port cast iron exhaust manifolds. The block was a high strength, high nickel content "hecho en Mexico" design with larger 2-bolt main caps. The heads were similar to the 289 HiPO K-code's with small, close tolerance pushrod holes. Emissions standards reduced the output of the 302 to just 140 hp (104 kW) in 1975, but modern technology brought the power back in the 1980s. Throttle body fuel injection first appeared on the Lincoln Continental in 1980, and was made standard on all applications in 1983. Electronic sequential fuel injection came in 1986.
The 302 was also offered for marine applications in both standard and reverse rotation setups. 5.0
The 5.0 was actually a 302 inł (4942 cc) engine updated with the metric naming convention of the 1980s. This engine powered many rear wheel drive Ford cars, including the Crown Victoria and Mustang. It was replaced by the 4.6 L Ford Modular engine in the early 1990s.
