Sounds exactly like what happens when you put the a mustang on the dyno.
I thought the rear wheels were setup to spin a certain ratio with the front. Nothing to do with torque and power tables.
when I dyno’d my GT350 I basically had every light on the dashboard. Also keep in mind, OP has...
If the ford authority report is accurate, we’re going to see a bespoke engine in this car.
525hp and 450tq are insane numbers for an NA mass produced engine.
I love NA power and will be following the MACH1 very closely, as I did the GT350
What’s interesting is ford likes to do “firsts”.
what is the first here? At 450tq, they would break the production engine record at 90ft/lbs per litre.
the 4.5L V8 Ferrari does 88.5/L.
Porsche’s RS engine is right there too. The coyote would take them both.
so maybe there is merit here.
Regarding the coyote with the 5.2 heads:
Not happening, at least in this current configuration. Ford performance does sell the 5.2 heads for use on the coyote, but it’s gen II only. In order to use the heads on a gen III engine, they’ll need to be completely redesigned for dual injection.
You might be ahead with ported stock heads as you’ll retain the direct injection. AXS5.2 is rated on race fuel with long tube headers. It won’t make those numbers with factory emissions systems and pump gas, probably down 40hp and 20tq.
I can’t see a different HO version of the coyote with Shelby pieces, here’s why.
The 5.2 heads are port injection only, therefore if ford wants the extra power they’ll have to redo a lot of the bottom end. The gen three coyote has specific DI pistons (I think).
Think of the gen 2 coyote with...
Either way you look at it, Ford could have done something. It’s just a matter of
Financials and timelines. Could they add the additional technology for $1300 their cost/unit? Perhaps.
Could they do it with their already stretched and late timeline? Nah lol.
Regarding fuel economy, it was well in Ford’s control to have the predator make much better fuel economy.
They dropped the ball though.
1) if the predator was actually based on the gen three coyote architecture as opposed to the now 6 year old gen two platform then;
2) we could have seen...
That’s everyone’s hope, but isn’t feasible.
The 5.2 predator actually has the gen2 coyote top end, which is port injection only.
If ford made an NA version of this engine they would have to make it dual injection like the gen three coyote, and to put it in the next generation car it would...
