It’s hard to believe that, in one form or another, the Ford Performance catalog has been around for over 32 years. From Ford Performance Equipment to Ford Motorsport SVO to Ford Racing to Ford Performance Racing Parts to Ford Performance Parts, this tome has long been the wish list for Blue Oval performance enthusiasts. Of course, it’s not just a paper catalog these days, as it lives in the digital world too. To highlight some of the new parts available in this edition, Ford Performance also launched a microsite devoted to its new parts announced at The SEMA Show.

It’s hard to believe that Ford Performance is celebrating 35 years of purveying performance parts. Its 32nd catalog features a historical retrospective and a new companion microsite highlights some of the new gear available from Ford Performance Parts.

“The 2016 Ford Performance Parts catalog was revealed at the 2015 SEMA show,” says FPP. “The catalog contains a historical overview of the Performance Parts program and is the first element in a yearlong celebration commemorating 35 years of meeting the Ford enthusiasts’ performance parts needs.”

Coyote swaps are all the rage, and now Ford Performance Parts has taken all the guesswork out of gathering the parts with its Coyote Power Module, which includes the 5.0-liter engine, a Tremec six-speed manual transmission, and the supporting hardware to install them.

As you would expect, the latest site and catalog both make use of the latest Cobra Jet imagery, but many of those parts are found inside its pages. In fact, you can even order up a Whipple-supercharged Cobra Jet engine for your project right from its paper or digital pages. Some of the other highlights revealed at The SEMA Show include a complete Coyote swap kit (known as the Coyote Power Module), a new 347ci crate engine, and a GT350-style exhaust/valance package for EcoBoost and 5.0-liter 2015+ Mustangs.

“The Coyote Power Module simplifies both the shopping and build experience by kitting up the right parts that are matched to deliver potent performance with civilized driveability,” says Ford Performance. “The engine control pack and wiring harness is truly plug and play and simplifies the conversion to modern electronically fuel-injected V-8 high-performance engine.”

Even if you don’t buy a Cobra Jet, you can put Cobra Jet power in your project car with a FPRP CJ crate engine. It is complete from the Whipple supercharger to the oil pan, but the electric water pump and American Racing Headers long-tubes are optional.

To that end, the CPM (PN M-9000-PMCM) includes a 2015 Coyote 5.0, a Tremec six-speed, a bellhousing, a clutch, a lightweight billet flywheel, a PCM, a wiring harness, a Boss alternator and a power steering mount.

If a modern crate engine is your thing, but you want a supercharger, Ford Performance is also offering its Cobra Jet 5.0-liter complete from blower to oil pan. This engine is fortified with a forged steel crankshaft, a billet steel gerotor oil pump, Mahle forged pistons, Manley H-beam connecting rods, an ATI crank damper and more.

The new FPP 347 crate engine cranks out 360 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque and it is filled with good parts from a who’s who of aftermarket suppliers, including a Scat forged crankshaft, Mahle forged pistons, and a Comp camshaft. It is topped by FPRP aluminum heads, an Edelbrock Performer RPM Air Gap intake, and a Holley Street Avenger carburetor.

Of course, Ford Performance hasn’t forgotten its roots, and the anniversary catalog includes a new 347 crate engine with a rear-sump oil pan.

“The most popular crate engine size just got better and easier thanks to the Engineers at Ford Performance. The proven 347 stroker combination has been optimized for street cruising with a perfectly matched cam, cylinder head, intake manifold and carb combination that runs on pump gas,” says the company. “It takes the guesswork and installation issues out of the way with a complete intake and distributor package that has been developed and tested by Ford Performance engineers.”

Not looking to install an engine? There are plenty of bolt-on parts in the new catalog for the latest Mustangs. If you’d like to add more exhaust personality and a bit of Shelby style to your S550, there is a new series of axle- and cat-back exhausts from FPP that feature quad tips and come with a matching GT350 lower valance. These systems are available with either Sport or Touring mufflers depending on how much more volume you want.

If you own a 2015+ Mustang and are a bit jealous of the GT350’s quad-tip exhaust system, FPP now offers axle- and cat-back exhaust systems for GT and EcoBoost S550s with four exhaust tips.

Naturally, that’s just a sampling of the new gear released at The SEMA Show. Ford Performance Parts plans to celebrate the longevity of its parts program into 2016 with various promotions. The first of which is a video retrospective of some of the most significant parts in from the catalog over the years. The 10-part social-media video series will begin with a look back at the GT-40 intake for pushrod 5.0-liters.

Stay tuned for those videos, and if you can’t get your hands on the catalog yet, you can find some of the other new parts listed here and you can view the SEMA microsite here.

These kits are available with the louder Sport and the quieter Touring mufflers, and they include the GT350 lower rear valance.
