1992 Ford 5.0 EFI Engine Information

by Phil Whitmer

In 1992, the Ford Motor Company manufactured the 5.0L or 302 engine with electronic fuel injection known as EFI. It was used in many Ford trucks and passenger cars. The 4,942-cubic-centimeter engine was called a 5.0L, though it actually displaced 4.9 liters or 301.6 cubic inches.

Ford 302

The Ford 302 was a Windsor small-block, 90-degree, V8 engine. The thin-wall block engine uses high-flow aluminum cylinder heads. It was developed in 1968 from the Ford 289 by shortening its connecting rods for a 3.0-inch stroke. Both fuel injected and carbureted 302s have two valves per cylinder head.

Fuel Injection

The Ford 302 first featured indirect throttle body fuel injection in its Lincoln luxury car application for the early 1980s models. The 1992 Ford 302 engine uses electronic sequential port fuel injection. This type of indirect fuel injection places the injectors in the engine's intake ports instead of directly into the combustion chambers.

Technical Specifications

The 1992 Ford 302 with electronic fuel injection is a naturally aspirated engine. Its bore and stroke are 4.0 inches by 3.0 inches with a 9:1 compression ratio. Its net power production is 225 horsepower at 4,200 rpm. Its maximum torque rating is 300 pound-feet at 3,200 rpm.
