    • Stock 2020 Shelby GT500 Predator V8 dyno comparison with Whipple Supercharged Shelby GT350 Voodoo V8

      The Predator V8 in the Ford Shelby GT500 and the Voodoo V8 in the Shelby GT350 Mustang may share the same displacement but they are very different beasts. The GT350 is obviously naturally aspirated and designed to rev to make power.


      It is a very efficient mill and with a bit of boost can make big power. Big power of course being the name of the game for the GT500 which in stock form is topping 700 horsepower to the wheels.

      How does a Whipple blown GT350 stack up on the exact same Dynojet the 705 rwhp GT500 was measured on? It makes similar torque but a bit more power up top over a wide powerband with 735 horsepower to the wheels coming at 7980 rpm:


      Now things can change quite a bit as it is not as simple as stating blown GT350 versus stock GT500 as if it is apples to apples. Supercharged GT350's range in output as one example at 11.5 psi of boost on 91 octane producing 786 rwhp shows.

      The GT350 can produce more power at less boost with a much higher redline allowing more aggressive gearing. Combine that with a Mustang carrying much less weight and it goes to show how potent the GT350 can be. The main issue if choosing one for all out power and performance is the GT350's lack of a dual clutch transmission option.

      If you start doing all out builds, the sky is the limit for either.

        Both amazing. For the track Id take the DCT in to 500. For fun, the manual, the sound of the flat plane crank and a little supercharger whine in the 350 Click here to enlarge

        Once the GT500 hype dies down Ford really should give the GT350 that transmission...
