Well,i hope that it is a 351 as do most people.In order for FORD to beat the demon in my opinion,they will need 2 models.I don't see ford using new engines for the GT500. It would ruin reliability, durability. The 5.2 has been around a brief period. Far to short to stuff in the GT500. I think it will be the old 5.8 Trinity with a big 2.9L blower. It will be a little while longer before more info is available. This I can say for sure: Ford is waiting for Dodge to finalize the SRT Demon's hp level. Once that is known, the SVT GT500 will top it in power, but not by much. Possibly 25-30 hp. The GT350R's body is what is being used, with the front end and Engibe a secret, hence why the rest of the car is not camo'd. That big hood bulge tells me a big blower is sitting on top. Though it is likely not belted yet. Oddly, the Oem Eaton on the 2013-14 GT500 was fairly quiet in operation. You almost could not hear it. There is a chance it'll be a beefed up 5.0 with the big blower on it. As the new 5.0 is capable of over 900 crank hp, supposedly.
lets just use the name GT500.They will need a GT500 drag pack with the same type of tires that the demon is gonna use with more power to beat it,and lets say a GT500 R ,that will be the zl1 destroyer and go after the z06.What do you think?:ford::cheers:
