    • What does the 2018 Ford Mustang GT Ti-VCT Coyote V8 with dual port and direct fuel injection plus a 7500 rpm redline dyno? 425 rear wheel horsepower

      Ford updated the Mustang Coyote V8 with dual fuel injection for the 2018 model year. Adding both port and direct injection to engines is all the rage right now. The fuel system change allows a bump in compression for the Mustang GT from 11.0:1 to 12.0:1.


      The 5.0 liter BMW S85 V10 from way back in 2005 offered 12.0:1 compression with port injection alone. It also was rated at 507 horsepower.

      The 2018 Mustang GT 5.0 is rated at 460 horsepower yet it shows the same output as the lofty BMW V10 on a Dynojet:


      The 420 lb-ft rating is conservative as well with the car hitting 390 lb-t of torque at the wheels. This blows E60 M5's 320 lb-ft of torque at the wheels out of the water.

      The motor is also revving to 7500 rpm now. Still short of the lofty 8200 rpm redline of the GT350 Mustang Voodoo V8 but it is definitely a greater hp per dollar bargain. For reference, the Voodoo offers 12.0:1 compression and puts down 467 horsepower to the tires.

      The 2018 Mustang GT is offering a lot of value for its $35k starting price.

        Thats pretty impressive.
        I just dont get why speed and not rpm is always on the bottom axis for posted dynos. No one cares about speed.

        I have no idea why they didn't do it in rpm to show the new redline in action.

        Just usually means there was no RPM pickup for that car
