    Who here paid 20K over MSRP? I know I didn't.... nor did anyone else that I've seen post here. Some out there have I'm sure, but they are well....either have stupid money, or just stupid. Or both? lol

    I’m not sure what you’re seeing but I assure you fitting a smaller pulley will be possible. The front parts of the blower package are modular/removable.
    This combo is simply restricted by the cats and octane. Add a ‘free-flowing exhaust’, give it appropriate octane and it will tolerate blower speed/boost levels that will be better than anything the factory has ever given us.
    I’m good with that—3 mods and done for me, then pray the DCT holds.

    That or we talk about 850hp from 760hp because parasitic drag... I’ll take the dames

    The GT500 is SAE Certified 760hp. SAE certification measures hp at the crank..not rwhp in case that wasn't mentioned before.

    If you watch the video that was quoted above after 2:10 760 to the wheels is mentioned several times. Not sure if they're just trolling or what.

    Agree. I recall reading that the DCT torque capacity is rated at 664 ft. lbs. That is a narrow delta from stock form.

    Yeah it's a concern for now. But, the t56 was rated at 450 ft lbs Tq.

    And most of us put a stronger input shaft in and put 600+ lb ft tq through them.

    I'm hoping once the tuning begins we dont find that Ford limited the Tq too much...

    NO Mfg. advertised hp is @ the tires.
    What a co. gives the government is @ the crank !!

    Would not be the first time something stupid/incorrect was said. Not to mention talking about how much power it has before blower loss? Why tf is that relevant? Lol its like saying "worlds most power dense v8".

    The mention of 850 HP was made to help explain the added cooling requirements. Just because it isn't talked about, doesn't mean it doesn't have an impact on the heat generated.

    Once again, Turner delivers in his latest article. Interesting to note that we haven't been seeing Carl Widmann lately but rather Ed Krenz and now Pat Morgan looks to have been let out of the woodwork as well.

    Of interest...

    Ed Krenz - "Effortlessly handling the 760 horsepower is our segment-first Tremec dual-clutch transmission..."

    GT500 cylinder heads flow 2-3% better than the previous FPC engine. GT350 will now benefit from the latest and greatest as well.

    Pat Morgan - "...we found out that this is a pretty good manifold (exhaust) for cross-plane as well. Really good..."

    I compared the exhaust manifolds a while back in a side by side with the GT350 pieces and those of the GT500 engine on a stand at Detroit and they looked identical.

    Turner writes that "Engineers never even considered a manual transmission."

    This runs counter to some of what I heard (that the engineers working on the project expressed interest in a manual but management from above did not).

    Pat Morgan - "There's a wiring harness inside the oil pan and I think its 14 solenoids that control the mechatronics and the shifting. In order to get it to shift in 80 milliseconds, we actually hardwire the paddle shifts. It's a direct wire. We have this typical CAN that all cars have these days for all the other communications, port control and all that stuff. But for the paddle, when the driver commands a paddle, it goes straight to the TCM."

    Ed Krenz - "The carbon fiber driveshaft, you would think it's entirely about light weighting and to some degree that's true. But with the metal couplings at either end, it's not a massive weight savings. It really gets to minimizing lash and rotational inertia."

    If I remember correctly, when I swapped the factory GT350 2-piece driveshaft for a 1-piece QA1 CF shaft, I went from around 30lbs to 20lbs. A 1/3 weight reduction is significant but it is interesting to hear this was done for other reasons. Sounds like Ford is using metal ends where QA1 used aluminum.

    Turner writes that "they told us that the car could run flat out until the fuel tank ran dry without de-rating, which means it won't heat-soak and rein in the engine's output."

    So no temperatures have been mentioned with respect to limp mode but the protective strategies are still there. Can't wait to see it run in the heat just to validate what has been said.

    Ed Krenz - "The front end is all about the cooling. So we said that it's 50-percent bigger than the GT350. Strictly that's true, but from our front-end opening airflow perspective, it's actually 100 percent greater than the GT350."

    How Engineers Pushed The 2020 Shelby GT500 Powertrain To Deliver Supercar Level 0-100-0 Performance

    As always, nice writeup Steve.
