    Anyone else frustrated with Ford over the next GT500?

    That ship has sailed. Chevrolet already has a twin turbo 5.5L DOHC (capable of 454 cubic inches) slated for the mid engine corvette and says this will be the foundation for all performance engines to come. Next stop; Camaro. Big bore stroker kits will be a dime a dozen for that engine. Yay...

    Rumor: 7.0L N/A V8 in new GT500

    You get an "A" for optimism. Yes, the technology they've been working on makes the future of hotrodding look very interesting. Looks like there's no shortage of power potential on the horizon. Check out Tesla's 8 second quarter mile luxury sports car.

    Rumor: 7.0L N/A V8 in new GT500

    While I would prefer the 6.2 based DOHC variant and I am disappointed in Fords persistence on hamstringing us with tiny engines I do appreciate the 5.2L supercharged hybrid effort. But no sooner do I talk myself into appreciating what Ford has done I see Chevy has already upped the game...

    Anyone else frustrated with Ford over the next GT500?

    I will vomit. Ford will be the laughing stock of red blooded American hot rodders everywhere. While Chevrolet is introducing their new 6.2L DOHC 4 valve monster, Ford will be popping their metro sexual turbo 6 in the Mustang? NO. NO, NO, NO, NO. I don't care if makes 10,000 horsepower and fly's...

    Those interested in the new GT500,....

    I don't know the details but I want to assume the best. The article below tells us that a 7.X L engine is already done and it has more torque and better fuel efficiency that the smaller 6.8L V10. The V10 is inherently a more efficient design and there's nothing you can't do to a V10 to increase...

    It's already done. It's going in the heavy duty truck line. Change the intake manifold and cam timing and it's ready for the Mustang.

    Upcoming timeframe on the next GT500 and speculation

    Oh sure, plenty of power can be made no doubt but just imagine what the Chevy guys will be able to do with a 6.2L platform capable of 440 cubic inches & some monster ported 4 valve heads. They won't even need a blower to decimate the GT500.

    Upcoming timeframe on the next GT500 and speculation

    So, Chevrolet is coming out with a 6.2L DOHC monster and Fords going backwards 10 years to something smaller than the original 5.4L GT500 powerplants? Yes, I know the heads are slightly better out of the box but the eternal Achilles heal for Ford is the lack of cubic inches. I don't think I'm...

    Heres the second confirmation for Chevrolet's new DOHC V8, With a FLAT PLANE crank. http://blog.caranddriver.com/a-new-chevrolet-camaro-z28-is-still-on-the-way-heres-everything-we-know/ Does anybody really think Ford doesn't plan on answering that call out? It's bad enough they drug their...

    I doubt it. Chevrolet is going naturally aspirated in the Corvette with their DOHC 6.2. Seems like all manufactures try to remains on a somewhat level playing field. But fact is, I don't know.

    DOHC head was designed several years ago. Ford said they didn't use it because of some baloney about not passing emissions.

    Those interested in the new GT500,....

    I'm convinced the 6.2L DOHC will be in the next GT500. It's already been stated Ford is working on a "new big block". With Chevrolet introducing their new 6.2L DOHC it would be silly for Ford to remain with the hagged out 4.6L inspired architecture. It's ridiculous they didn't step up to the 6.2...

    Short Runner VS Stock Intake - Dyno Results

    This is one of many different short runner designs I've worked on over the years. This particular one sacrifices very little torque and picks up around 12 peak hp and 35+ at 6700 on a simple bolt on car. Something with a cam should expect 50'ish+ HP around 7000 RPM. The comparison was...

    Oil Viscosity for DOHC

    Hopefully putting this info its own thread will help clear up the confusion caused by the oil viscosity change in 2001. Nobody should be running 5w20. The switch from 5w30 in 1999 to 5w20 in 2001 on identical engines had nothing to do with wear or reliability issues and everything to do with...

I can plainly state that there has been oil pump failures related to Steeda and other small diameter dampers that are too numerous to count.
