They can. It's a matter of strategy.

If Ford wants TT, THEN GREENLIGHT IS GIVEN to reengineer some things.

If not, then we will see it in the s650.

I find the idea of twin centris to be about as ridiculous as AWD. The only company I know of who's done that was Koenigsegg and they only did it for a single model then switched to twin turbos.

It's practically an all-new engine.

Maybe,....but look at all the S500 Mustangs that are close to 800rwhp and passing emissions with Whipples and VMP superchargers.
The new TVS is more efficient than those and allows for more power. Pus, add the 5.2 engine
We shall see soon I guess. I'm thinking this car is going to be announced next month in September. Of course, I'm just speculating here.

I have no idea. I doubt the Whipple will be on the new GT500, but the new TVS 2650 "may" be.
I'm sure Whipple have a killer kit for the new Mustang model.
