    • Who needs a GT500? Shelby GT350 Mustang with Fathouse Fab 1200R turbo kit hits 1328 rear wheel horsepower

      If you do not feel like waiting for a Shelby GT500 the GT350 motor with a bit of boost will likely hold you over and then some. It may even be a better way to go. How exactly do you argue with a high revving 5.2 liter flat-plane crank V8 making over 1300 horsepower to wheels?


      This is quite simply glorious:


      That output comes at only 23 psi of boost.

      This is the most powerful Shelby GT350 in the world.

      So what is included in this 1200R package?

      Performance:

      • 750 whp on 93 Oct
      • 1200+ whp on E85 or racegas
      • Capable of 9 second 1/4 mile times

      Components:

      • Hand built stainless steel turbo headers
      • Full custom stainless steel exhaust, no mufflers (aggressive sound)
      • Precision tig welding throughout
      • Xona Rotor dual ball bearing turbochargers
      • Heat coating and turbo blankets
      • Motec M150 ECU Package
      • Electronic boost control with multiple settings
      • Tial MVR recirculated wastegates (No loud exhaust dumps all you hear is sweet turbo sound)
      • Tial Q blow off valve
      • 4.5″ Thick Intercooler (symmetrical design)
      • Coated intercooler piping (zero ground clearance loss)
      • Custom Air Filters
      • Purpose built scavenge system
      • Catch can system with lines and fittings
      • Injector Dynamics Injectors
      • Return style fuel system
      • Upgraded twin disc clutch
      • Triple fuel pump upgrade
      • Forged engine package
      • Upgraded sleeves
      • Billet Oil Pump and Crank Sprocket gears
      • Carbon fiber driveshaft
      • Level 5 axles
      • Drag radial tires
      • Suspension upgrade


      The price is $72k but does include installation and tuning. Let's be real, that's a bargain for 1300+ rwhp along with driveline modifications.

      The motor is built and sleeved but what is amazing here is the crank, heads, and cams are all still stock.

      Something to be said for boosting high revving and highly volumetric efficient motors, eh?

        A. That’s awesome. And a bargain like you said.
        B. Seems like it would do better than 9s with 1300HP? Maybe 9s on 93oct?

        It's just an estimate. Honestly, up to the driver, conditions, etc., at that point.

        If you can't run 9's with this... sell the car.

        I have heard of problems at stock power with the voodoo motor. I think it was lots of oil consumption and oil pump gear failure problems that make the engine throw rods.

        I bet it will still run just 10s.

        A GT with less power but you get the idea:

        Oh no that makes sense for a GT to do it. Im talking $#@! about the GT350 running anything near where its power says it should. Its not a drag car, and doesnt do well.

        Unfortunately there aren't a lot of GT350's out there but with the right suspension and tire setup I see no reason it can't do this:

        For one I feel like putting all the work into setting up a GT350 to actually work on a drag strip would be criminal and a waste of time and waste of a good car. Also, the GT350 is a high rev engine without as much low end torque and turbos wouldn't help that so regardless a normal GT is better for the strip either way you slice it.

        No.

        The GT350 is higher compression and slightly larger. Why you think turbos won't help low end torque for it but will for a Coyote is odd.

        Frankly, the Voodoo is more efficient and will make more power with less boost. I think it's the better choice for power.

        Im just telling you they don't perform on the strip in the real world. Im not really sure why exactly but they don't.

        I'm saying I see no reason why the GT350 would do worse when prepped for strip duty.

        Cross planes are better for high loads. Get a 5.2 aluminator crate engine. You will get the Voodoo block and heads with better Cobra Jet intake and better (for boost) cross plane internal. Not to mention in NA it makes 580 hp vs the 520 in GT350. I love the GT350 as it is, but drag car/boosted beast it isn't.

        The aluminator is a crate engine from Ford Racing so of course it's beefed up.

        How you are saying a 1300 whp GT350 isn't a boosted beast is insane. Plus it will do 800+ whp with a whipple on the stock internals. On pump gas.

        As stated, strip elapsed time performance is dictated by the suspension and tire setup as well as driver at these levels. The S550 is proven to run 8's.

        I didn't say the engine wasn't capable, i said the car isn't a drag car hence you mentioned suspension/tire setup not suitable for drag racing which i agree. The car is not a drag car. The engine is potent though. However if you want to build GT350 a drag car, why not start with a GT with more suitable drag suspension and even more potent engine for drag racing?

        Because if building the motor ultimately the Voodoo will be more capable. You could swap out the Coyote for an Aluminator but this essentially is an Aluminator that revs higher which means more power and no engine swap necessary.
